Searching for a workspace in London that’s miles apart from Westminster, Canary Wharf, and the bustling tourist hubs? Look no further than East London.

With 36 new startups popping up every square kilometre, East London boasts cool, affordable workspaces in even cooler surroundings. (Just look at Shoreditch and Hackney, for example!)

But with so many trendy and creative workspaces up for grabs, you may feel overwhelmed about where to start. But who said you needed to manage the search all on your own?

With the UK’s largest selection of flexible office spaces, Hubble removes the hassle of finding an office. From on-demand workspaces to flexible full-time offices, our platform helps businesses provide great places for their teams to work.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of some of most popular workspaces in East London so you can get an idea of what’s available.

And remember, you can make a shortlist, book viewings, and access any of these all via Hubble!

What types of workspaces are available in East London?

To help businesses give their teams great places to work, Hubble offers three workspace solutions:

The workspace providers mentioned here offer a variety of these workspace options. Whether it’s a shared office or a private workspace, we’re confident you’ll find an office space in East London that suits your needs.

But what’s the difference between full-time offices, part-time offices, and on-demand workspace?

Full-Time Offices in East London

Full-time offices are private spaces or executive suites that you rent for the month or longer on a five-day-a-week basis.

Often serviced, these offices in East London are all set up and ready to go from move-in day. Another company — the workspace provider — takes care of all the utilities, bills, and day-to-day maintenance, and costs are packaged into a single, all-inclusive monthly fee.

With 5000+ office spaces in London alone, our platform boasts an expansive selection of full-time offices for businesses of all sizes.

Part-Time Offices in East London

For those looking for more affordable coworking spaces in East London, Hubble also offers Part-Time Offices.

These flexible office spaces are available for businesses to rent the same 1-3 days per week, helping you save significantly on office rent. (Up to 75%, to be precise!)

So, if you’re a flexible company that doesn’t need a daily physical office presence but still values the benefits of in-person collaboration, then a Part-Time Office in East London is for you.

On-demand access to workspaces in East London

For remote teams looking for even more workspace flexibility, East London boasts plenty of on-demand workspaces.

These are coworking spaces, private day offices, meeting rooms, and event space that you can book by the day or hour — all via Hubble On-Demand.
