5 Great Coworking Spaces In London

 

 

With more and more people taking their side hustles full time or embracing remote work, the traditional office setup is falling out of vogue for a lot of people. What alternatives are rushing forward to fill the gap?

 

Not everyone’s built to work from home every day. Being stuck in your own home can get a little bit bleak. It’s one of the biggest disadvantages of remote work. Hopping from public place to public space can get tiresome as well. You can only stay in a coffee shop for so long and they’re not exactly built for long-term work.

London, being a hotspot for eager architects, has a vast number of really cool coworking spaces for you to choose from, a lot of them refurbished

We’ve found five that we really love, because of a combination of facilities, aesthetics, and cost. If none of these get you excited, check out some more, filtered to your needs, here.

Mortimer House 

Coworking Spaces In London: Mortimer House

Price Range:£500-£6000 per month. Higher membership packs are designed for teams, rather than individuals! Joining Fee of £250

Where: Fitzrovia

You Should Check This Place Out If: You value wellness and like lots of extra amenities

Mortimer House used to be an office block until it was renovated by New York-based company AvroKO. Now it’s a really chilled out coworking space with an awesome art deco aesthetic.

Featuring room service connected to the Mediterranean restaurant downstairs,  a gym, a wellness centre, a meditation room, and quiet work areas, this space almost feels more like a hotel than a workspace.

The Allbright

Coworking Spaces In London: The Allbright

Price Range: £750 per month, with a £300 joining fee.

Where: Mayfair

You Should Check This Place Out If: You’re a female entrepreneur looking to network with other women.

The Allbright is a female-only working space, based out of a five-story Georgian House, offering a very cosy, non-corporate environment for women to collaborate and work.

It’s one of the pricier options on this list, but membership gets you a desk, access to a programme of regular events, beauty treatment rooms, yoga spaces, and a swathe of networking opportunities with other professional women. This includes a monthly ‘pitch day’ where you can be introduced to potential investors.

De Beauvoir Block

Coworking Spaces In London: De Beauvoir Block

Price Range: £100-£300 per month

You Should Check This Place Out If: You’re on a budget

With a tasteful, pink themed minimalist look, De Bauvoir doesn’t feel like an especially budget space. And yet, if you’re just starting out and looking to get into a coworking environment, this could be the one for you.

One hundred pounds a month gives you access to the space from 7am-7pm every weekday, a cafe, and a bookable meeting room. Higher tiers give you 24/7 access, as well as a private, lockable desk.

Campus London

Coworking Spaces In London: Campus London

Price Range: Free, with caveats.

Where: Shoreditch

You Should Check this Place Out If: You’re a tech startup

Run by Google- a fact one can tell at a glance based around the design of the place, with lots of open space and bright colours.

The main wrinkle this space has over any of the others is the application process. You can sign up for membership absolutely free, but this doesn’t explicitly guarantee a workspace at the campus. It also doesn’t guarantee that your application will be approved. What membership does grant you access to is a large community of startups and mentors,  as well as classes and events.

If you fit the criteria Google sets for joining, this one is well worth checking out.

 

The Office Group

Coworking Spaces In London: The Office Group

Price Range: £375+  (with optional add ons)

Where: City-Wide

You Should Check This Place Out If: You want a central location and a lot of flexibility

The Office Group, established in 2003, has locations across the city. They really know how to find great locations that are designed to be welcoming and airy.

Signing up for a membership lets you pick a location as your ‘home base’ with 24/7 access. You do, however, get limited access to all seventeen spaces. You also get access to rooftop gardens, bar spaces, and a lot of networking opportunities.

Optional add-ons include call answering and forwarding, a mailing address, and locker access at multiple locations.

Final Thoughts

The proliferation of coworking spaces means competition is high and so there are plenty of options to choose from. A good workspace is a huge part of making you effective and motivated. Shop around, and pick the one that works for you.
