CDA hosted Foreign Press Association on the opening of the Elizabeth Line

This morning Central District Alliance and Hatton Garden Business Improvement District hosted an event with Transport for London, attended by members of the Foreign Press Association in London.

We were proud to host the event in our district and at HB Reavis' fantastic Bloom Clerkenwell building.

The panelists led the discussion on the impacts of the Elizabeth line on the City and its importance for London’s economic recovery.

With the Elizabeth line opening next week at Farringdon and Tottenham Court Road, our Chair, Alexander Jan, delved into the importance of this for the two BIDs and the support it will offer businesses in the footprint.

Ahead of next week's launch, the group then visited the Elizabeth Line station at Farringdon, to see a sneak preview of what’s to come!

Thank you to our panelists and guests!
