Invest in Richmond

Richmond has an unrivalled offer that resonates with both business and consumer audiences.

Extensive public and road transport links, and close proximity to Central London and London Heathrow, make Richmond easily accessible and therefore an ideal business location.

Many high-profile, multi-national and large UK corporates have chosen Richmond as their home. The town centre has attracted an impressive cluster of technology and IT companies – leading to its moniker of ‘Silicon upon Thames’ – as well as household name brands.

For employees, the town centre benefits from a diverse retail offer of high street multiples and unique independents, along with an outstanding hospitality scene that encompasses quintessentially English pubs, stylish bars, quirky lunch stops and fine dining.

Added to this is a wealth of gyms and fitness studios, iconic green spaces and a plethora of local volunteering opportunities – all of which make Richmond a highly desirable place to work.
