Having transformed the way people work in London, the coworking revolution is now shifting the landscape of Manchester. The high costs and long contracts for commercial properties have traditionally been off-putting for startups, newer businesses, and those looking for offices. But Manchester’s recent crop of coworking office spaces offers a refreshing amount of flexibility.

One key advantage of coworking spaces is that providers are forced to be competitive and offer amazing facilities. If people are unhappy with what they offer, they can move elsewhere without being hampered by the usual 5-year lease. Consequently, the bar is set high, and this is evident in Manchester’s coworking spaces.

Manchester’s coworking spaces are an eclectic bunch—they cater for the needs of almost any industry, from retail to video game production. However specific your requirements for a workspace in Manchester are, you can be sure to find somewhere to fulfil them, whether it’s a shared office space, a hot desk, or a coworking space.

To help you find the perfect workspace for your team, we’ve curated a list of 11 of the best coworking spaces to rent in Manchester by the month or longer. As a flexible workspace platform, we’re confident we can help you find just the right coworking space for you—whether that’s a professional workspace filled with an entrepreneurial spirit or an alternative space designed to spark creativity.

Why rent a coworking space in Manchester?

Competitive amenities

Often serviced, coworking spaces in Manchester have amenities and features designed to enhance the work experience. These can include cafes and restaurants, bike storage, phone booths, parking, and even gyms (depending on where you look!).

While the exact facilities will vary depending on the Manchester coworking space you choose, they’ll always come with furniture, high-speed internet, coffee and snacks, and everything else you need to ensure you live and work well. It’s always about the work-life balance!

It’s well-connected

It’s no secret that Manchester is a commuter’s dream. It’s an exceptionally well-connected as a central city in the UK, with a rich network of train stations and coach stations to get from A to B.

With major hubs like Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria train stations, alongside well-equipped coach stations, the city offers a wide range of commute options to various destinations across the country and beyond.

Flexible contracts

When you rent a flexible workspace (such as a serviced office), you benefit from an equally flexible contract. These can range from three months to a whole year, with most workspace providers even offering monthly rolling contracts!

This means you can upsize, downsize, or ditch the office altogether in just a month’s notice. And with no hefty exit fees to worry about, renting a flexible coworking space in Manchester is an affordable option for businesses of all sizes.
