The 7 Best Places In London To Get Your Work Done

Being a freelancer, student or occasional work-from-homer often comes with the excitement of not having to get of your pyjamas, answering emails in bed and being able to mix business with unlimited biscuits and tea. And whilst this does sound appealing, it can get lonely and with Netflix just a couple of clicks away perhaps isn’t the most productive. We’ve rounded up our favourite places in London to get you out of the house and into an environment to truly get stuff done. So, say hello to your new office with options ranging from libraries to women’s only working spaces complete with gyms and beauty rooms…

1. Clean Prose

Introducing Clean Prose, London’s first co-writers working space located on Old Street. This combination of a quiet working environment with great networking opportunities is tackling the common freelance woes of loneliness and productivity. Whilst, a membership will set you back £125 for weekends and £250 for unlimited access, we’re giving it the seal of approval for its multitude of workshops and classes hosted by industry professionals on things like ‘writing a romantic comedy’ and the ‘building blocks of writing’.

2. The Wing

The Wing is a women’s only working space that started in New York and has locations in all the hottest places like Hollywood and Boston. Now, having made it’s way across the pond to London just this month, we’re sure you’ll be dying to go here. Along some of the most stunning interior we’ve come across, the London location has a rooftop, beauty room, gym and of course conference rooms for when you actually want to do the work part.

3. Riding House Cafe

Being based in Central London, the Riding House Cafe is a perfect spot to stop and work in between meetings or, if you’re a member of the side hustle society, to head to straight from your 9-5. And, if you like the idea of a ‘working lunch’, brunch or dinner, the café has a mouth-watering menu to offer which is sure to make any mundane tasks that little bit more bearable.

4. The British Library

The British Library is a classic choice for students but we’ll have you know that anyone and everyone is welcome to come here to work! We’re calling this a great option for when a really important deadline is looming – with its inherent silent atmosphere and limited distractions you’re sure to get in the zone. Plus you’ll never be short of reading material…

5. Timber Yard

Another option for all you foodies is the cosy Timber Yard just next to Covent Garden. Picture a cosy coffee shop, practically made for those rainy Sunday afternoons along with meeting rooms you can book hourly or daily which gives you 15% off all food and drinks!  It’s the sort of place where you can picture J.K. Rowling writing her next instalment of Harry Potter. 

6. No.11 Pimlico Road

C U S T O M E R S E R V I C E | I just read an article about a business who decided to pause their sales because lots of their customers complained about poor customer service. This bold decision might actually be their smartest move. Did you know that almost 55% of us stop shopping at businesses that don’t meet our expectations and share the same values? Sorting out the back office and operations while training up front line staff (which I wrote about last week) is therefore very important. Sometimes business reputation depends on the smallest and unexpected gestures. . . I snapped this while having a lunch meeting in Pimlico the other day. Great food, friendly staff and a little surprise at the end. Ticked all the boxes. ✅ . . . #hospitality #retailexperience #brandstory #brandstorytelling #brandconsulting #branddevelopment #creativeagency #creativeagencylondon #brandstrategist #smallbiztips #smallbusinessowner #lifestylebusiness #interiordesignlondon

Calling all bloggers! This super Instagrammable spot near South London is destined to become your prettiest workspace yet. It’s not the quietest of choices, so if you’re someone that likes to work with a bit of hustle and bustle going on, then this is the place for you. It’s also a good place for socialising, an important factor for a freelancer! So, invite your friends over for some after-work drinks when your self-set day at work has ended.

7. Second Home

With multiple locations across London, Second Home is a co-working space said to be designed to help boost creativity and happiness with the locations beaming with natural light and homing over 1000 plants. The best part? It’s open 24/7 which is perfect for when your best idea comes to you at 3am or when that next day deadline is still yet to be worked on. Not all of us are early birds…
