Working in Leam
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.
Local Organisations to Help Your Business
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 conditions.
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.
Warwickshire County Council has an inward investment team that is focused on supporting businesses that are looking to relocate to the region or resize.

As well as being home to global organizations 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 3000 employees across 50 games development studios operating in the town and that number continues to grow, earning it the name ‘Silicon Spa’. This makes it the largest games cluster outside London and the South West, in the UK. For information or support please contact:
