London’s media industry is made up of a dynamic and diverse group of mass communications organisations including radio, television, print media, film, and digital media as well as the supporting industries: advertising, public relations and publishing.

London The Centre of the World's Media Industry

London is home to the British Broadcasting Corporation, one the most influential media organisations in the world, along with the headquarters of the majority of the UK’s top television companies. All of the UK’s national newspapers are edited in London and the city is also the centre of the British Film Industry.

London is also a world leader in publishing, PR and advertising and the media distribution industry is the second most competitive sector in London, employing a significant number of people. The UK Government is keen to expand the media industry in London, encouraging ‘Media Clusters’, such as Wimbledon Studios and Tech City in the Shoreditch area of Old Street. The London Mayors office is also involved in promoting London’s media industry and promoting international interest.
