As a global centre of business, London is a city that is leading the world when it comes to coworking spaces. Along with New York, London is one of the great pioneers at the forefront of the worldwide shift to coworking.
As of 2019, the UK capital was home to a whopping 1423 coworking spaces in London, with at least 48 new spaces opening throughout the year. That’s even more than New York, which gained 32 new spaces in 2019, and Berlin, where 17 new spaces were set up.
A new coworking space opens up in London roughly every five days.
A national and international leader
On average, five new spaces opened in London every month in 2019. In fact, London loves coworking so much that the city boasts around one million square metres of coworking space. For comparison, there are around 2.5 million square metres of coworking space in the whole of the USA! While coworking is a growing phenomenon across the globe, London’s uptake of coworking is far bigger than in the rest of the UK.
Unique and distinct spaces
The vast variety of unique coworking sites available mean that some of the most innovative and exciting companies are making the decision to use coworking space rather than set up their own permanent office spaces in London. The huge choice of locations available in the city means that there is a one-of-a-kind coworking site to suit any kind of organisation.
