Silicon Roundabout? What Silicon Roundabout? Far from fleeing to the east, Facebook has just doubled its capacity at its Euston Road headquarters, signing a lease for the top seven floors of Regent's Place.

The Evening Standard reported the social media company has taken 65,000 sq ft - which is also the London base of Manchester City . That's on top of the 87,000 sq ft it already signed for when it took on its first lease last year.

While Tech City is a hub for startups, N1 is becoming the place to be if you're a US technology giant in London. Google's new, £650m headquarters is in the swanky new King's Cross Central development (although work on the building won't begin until later this year). Meanwhile, Uber has offices on Caledonian Road.
