Outside of London, Royal Leamington Spa is amongst the top ten regional centres of wealth and tourism in the UK. Unsurprisingly this perpetuates growth for businesses in the town and its surrounding area.
As well as being home to global organisations such as National Grid, Millward Brown and Wolseley, Leamington also boasts one of the strongest clusters of video gaming companies in the UK. There are over 15 games businesses operating out of the town centre and that number continues to grow, earning it the name ‘Silicon Spa’.
In 2008, local businesses and property owners voted to establish a Business Improvement District (BID) within Royal Leamington Spa. Since then, BID Leamington has made excellent progress in delivering services and projects, agreed by the BID Board and its partners, which increase the appeal of the town and improve trading performance.
BID Leamington encourages new business initiatives and supports organisations wishing to move to the town. If you are thinking of starting a business in Royal Leamington Spa, BID Leamington would be delighted to hear your ideas, advise you on suitable locations and share how the team can support your new venture. Please contact BID Leamington to arrange a meeting.
