As you’d expect the UK’s largest cities, led by London, make up the top 10 for having the most 24-hour businesses. London has 100 with Leeds and Birmingham in joint second place with 59 each. Manchester and Glasgow finish the top five with 58 and 57 respectively.
However, when we look at the numbers in relation to the size of the area, splitting the total number of businesses per 10km2, it paints a very different picture; Salford, Bangor and Wells in Somerset come out on top with 19, 14 and 11 individual businesses respectively.
Analysing things through a different lens, Newport in south-east Wales comes out top when looking at the number of businesses per 100,000 people living in the area. Salford and Wells remained in the top three rankings.
