Westminster Property Hotspot

A move to Westminster, or investment in property there, is going to give you probably one of the best-known addresses in the UK, so here are some reasons why it might be right for you.

House Prices 🏠

Property Investment 🏠 🏠 

  • The City of Westminster in London is one of the capital’s prime locations for property investment – as suggested by current house prices
  • The seat of government in the UK, Westminster is also home to a population of around a quarter of a million people – a higher proportion of whom are of working age than the average in other parts of the capital

Economy ££

  • Containing some of London’s most prestigious landmarks, Westminster attracts multinational businesses to match, many of which have their headquarters in the borough
  • Less well-known is the fact that the majority of firms here are small businesses, employing fewer than 5 people and a surprising 96% of businesses employ fewer than 50.

Location and Transport 🚌 

  • Westminster occupies a large part of central London, including most of the West End, making it one of the most important – and sought-after – hubs of the capital
  • The mainline stations of Paddington and Victoria are within the City of Westminster, which is also served by underground and bus services
  • The efficiency of public transport may be suggested by the fact that 62% of households in Westminster do not own a car.

Education 🎓 

  • Some of the fee-paying independent schools – such as Westminster School – are amongst the best-known in the country
  • Several colleges of the University of London – including Kings College and the London School of Economics – have campuses within the borough. 

Environment 🌷

  • London is known for its parks and open spaces – and the City of Westminster has some of the biggest in the capital in Hyde Park, Regents Park and St James’ Park.

Trivia 🎬

Finally, did you know …

  • It is illegal to die within the Palace of Westminster
  • Big Ben is the bell and not the clock tower.
