Summer is here! And nobody likes to be stuck indoors when the sun’s out, especially when the hot weather is always so disappointingly fleeting. So, we thought it would be a good idea to produce a list of some of the best offices to enjoy the summer sun.
Having a fresh air space to take your work to can make all the difference to your team and work/life balance. Here are some of the best spots right now with outdoor gardens and rooftops:
DIG Space is the home of cutting-edge creative, digital and media startups. This flexible (dog-friendly) workspace is a short walk from Farringdon and Barbican stations and offers a wide range of amenities like bike storage, free of charge meeting rooms and of course a fantastic roof terrace used for events, community drinks and more.
The Ministry is the latest venture from the world-famous Ministry of Sound group. Set within a beautiful converted Victorian warehouse, this office benefits from original features, excellent facilities and a beautiful outdoor garden, perfect for summer evenings and entertaining clients.
Conveniently located in the heart of Clerkenwell, Finsbury Business Centre spans over 40,000 square feet of beautifully designed workspace and a roof terrace garden offering beautiful views. The perfect spot to enjoy lunch or a coffee from the famous in-house coffee shop.

Beautiful building boasting a 10-storey glazed atrium which floods the space with natural light. The roof terraces offer unobstructed and dramatic views of the river, London Bridge and the rest of the iconic skyline. Watch out for those sunsets!
Keyboards & Dreams has been lovingly restored from an 80s industrial building to a creative hub with high-speed internet, meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a stunning outdoor terrace. Fairy lights and outdoor seating transform the terrace and makes it the perfect place to host after-work drinks.
Brand new building right in the centre of London, located five minutes away from King’s Cross St. Pancras. In addition to the many amenities available, the space also boasts a wellness room, a beer island and an extensive roof terrace, so you can take in some Vitamin D while on the clock.
The White Collar Factory is in the heart of the tech city, and just a stone’s throw away from Old Street station. The building offers a huge range of workspaces, and quite possibly the best rooftop London has to offer. Not only are there unbeatable views, but there’s also a 150m rooftop running track on the roof. And for those of you who are more interested in drinking than running, there’s a rooftop bar.
Situated in one of London’s most idyllic postcodes, WorkLife Bermondsey is just a short walk from London Bridge station. Members benefit from excellent transport links, amazing surrounding amenities, and unbeatable views of the city from the roof terrace.
Old Street Yard offers (unsurprisingly) a beautiful courtyard in one of the most sought after areas in London – Shoreditch. Situated off of Old Street Roundabout, there are plenty of bustling bars and dining spots on the doorstep. There’s also plenty of green outdoor space to enjoy the sun during lunch breaks.
Members share 1,000 square feet of this arty and rustic space, which has direct access to this large mature park-like garden. Cliff Road Studios is perfect for a fun, laid-back atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of central London life, although only 9 minutes away from Caledonian road. The garden is perfect for meetings and there is, of course, permission for BBQs in the summer.
