Looking for a serviced office in London? Here's everything you need to know.
A serviced office is one where all operations is handled by the workspace provider, meaning that everything is set up and ready to go from the moment you move in – without you having to lift a finger.
They are an excellent solution for businesses of all sizes who are looking for flexible contracts, access to a variety of facilities, and a hassle-free office experience. They are also ideal for companies who want a steady and predictable cash flow, as rent is paid in an all-inclusive monthly fee.
For more about the benefits of serviced offices, head to this definitive guide.
A recent report that we conducted with JLL showed that the flexible office market in London is by far the largest and most developed in the UK. At the end of 2018, there was approximately 14.7 million sq ft of flexible office space in London, and this number is set to continue rising.
The explosion of the startup scene and the uncertainty of Brexit have certainly fuelled the growth of the London flexible office industry, as many businesses are now favouring flexibility, cost efficiency, and practicality in their office space. But that’s not the only reason. London is pioneering a new world of work, with a proliferation of providers offering something to suit every team’s needs and preferences.
Prices vary for a number of reasons, but the primary factors are a) location and b) facilities.
Naturally, desirable areas close to key landmarks and transport links will be in high demand, and prices will reflect that. However, even in traditionally expensive parts of London, you can find workspace to fit most budgets. Office space comes in various shapes and sizes, offering differing facilities and levels of service; some workspaces will strip back their offering to keep the space simple and affordable to businesses, whilst others pride themselves on their world-class design, amenities, and service.
