London has been named the fifth most expensive city in the world for coworking space, with whopping average rents reported at £695 per desk per month. These numbers would suggest that you’re more likely to spot a unicorn in Hyde Park than being able to find cheap London office space. But here’s the good news: budget-conscious entrepreneurs, freelancers and businesses can still pick up a coworking desk in some of the city’s hottest areas for as little as £65 per month.

To help you locate the most affordable coworking desks near you, we’ve created a handy map that features the cheapest spaces by London tube stations.
