Located in Holborn between the West End and the City, Hatton Garden has a long history of being a place of industry and commerce. As such, setting up offices here is an excellent choice for any inspired business.
Hatton Garden's impressive mercantile heritage stretches back through the centuries and the area has long been known for its jewellers and in particular for its appraisal and selling of diamonds. There are around 300 jewellers and businesses which focus on jewellery in Hatton Garden these days including the famous De Beers Group. The area itself is named after Sir Christopher Hatton, who was gifted and purchased land around the area in the 16th century. An estate was built, as well as several houses and shopfronts and with the eventual sale of the Hatton Garden estate, several wealthy diamond merchants moved their businesses in. That tradition persists today, with this quadrant labelled as one of the world’s most prestigious and well-known diamond quarters in the world.
As well as its illustrious history, Hatton Garden’s central location at the heart of the city means it has good transport connections to the rest of the country as well as international stations and airports.
