Nearby Bayswater also has supermarkets, a multiplex cinema, a post office, and a range of shops and delicatessens.
Hyde Park is popular with staff. It is 10-minute walk from the office and is often used for early morning or late afternoon runs (the office has shower facilities), or just a change of scenery during the lunch break.
Directly across from Hyde Park is London’s museum district. The West End – one of London's most vibrant areas for shopping, shows, culture and history – is also just a few stops on the Underground.
