Yes retro-tech is right. Run a Cat6 ethernet cable from the Hub to where you want it. 10/20/50 metre runs are quite cheap from the usual online places. If you need several wired connections in there, just add an unmanaged 4-8 Gb port "switch (<£20) on there - you can then also plug in a cheapish wireless access point into one of the ports to give better quality wifi in there.
Note - that "flat" cable is relatively easy to hide under carpet, by skirting boards, etc - or just use it for the duration of the work and then roll it up into a cupboard until next time. Can also get exterior grade quality cable and run it outside and back in if convenient - for permanent use

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to get Virgin Media to install some sort of external extension into my office.
I will give your suggestion a try if I am unsuccessful.
you will be unsuccessful as it is not a service VM provide. They will only install one hub in one location in your house and it is then up to you to facilitate any Internet distribution within your property.
You can ask them to move the hub and set it up in a different room, for £99, but I'm not sure if they are doing those type of visits during the current crisis. They are prioritising fault resolution and installs for people with no broadband.
My setup: V6 TV box, M350 Fibre broadband with Hub 3 in modem mode connected to a Netgear R7000 router. Telewest/VM user since 2001.
I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more
