The ways we work and where we work from has changed over the past few years. A trend of flo-working was already in progress when we went into lockdown in spring 2020. This pandemic has changed our work routines in even more dramatic ways. Most of us now prefer a hybrid model where you work a few days a week from home and a few days per week from an office – or something that resembles an office… with less of a corporate feel to it.

At Othership we have made it our mission to find the best places for you to work from. We have plenty of free workspaces in London, but maybe you prefer a fixed desk for a week or a month, maybe you need a place where your team can meet regularly or maybe you are looking for a place where you can bring your own lunch instead of buying a sandwich from the bar. These are our favourite coworking spaces in London, sorted for you by area in London and carefully selected by Othership (including discounts for members).

If you are looking for a workspace in other locations, head over to our workspace search and choose from more than 200 workspaces in the UK.
