One of the older co-working spaces started in 2009 as a social enteprise with a focus on fostering/housing technology focused and creative companies. They have 4 buildings across London if you include Traveltech, we really like the multiple event spaces/sizes for these guys. They also have a lot of internal events, so if you’re looking to integrate in the community fast/ never leave the office it seems pretty good! Finally they offer flats if you want to be close to the office and always in an entrepreneurial hub, nice to see someone offering a living solution at what seems a fairly decent price.
