A look at Amazon's new London HQ
Featuring rooftop tennis court to boot
Housed within a new 15-storey building in London's Shoreditch, called 'Principal Place', the new HQ will accomodate around 5,000 Amazon employees and hopes to create a neighbourhood vibe for its UK staff. The office will feature relaxing gardens, roof terrace, swimming pool, food outlets and a rooftop tennis and basketball court.
Google is also planning a large new office in London, near King's Cross station.
The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Our city is the perfect home for top tech talent and I am very pleased that Amazon have confirmed their intention to create thousands of jobs at a major new base in east London. "
