Moving Office


When you are thinking about moving office or looking to find a office in London here are some useful tips to help you set up your requirement:- 

Use a tube map to establish the different locations you will consider for your offices. Of course when location is being considered it might be worth you looking into everyones commuting patterns and also how close you wish to be to a particular tube. 

Office Space


In Central London when you are looking to find a London office you should also consider the various types of office space that are available:- 



Contemporary Office 

Contemporary Office is office space that would have a modern feel and benefit from all the current modern features of today. Usually Grade A offices will have all the features which includes receptionists within the ground floor entrance and the office space looks predominately like the photo. 



'Plug & Play" Office 

These are offices in London that have been already occupied so are in second hand condition. However they usually benefit from all the fixtures and fittings being left in situ.


For example furniture, kitchenette, IT cabling and partitioning would be left when an office is described as "plug & play" space. Given these offices have been occupied and usually the previous tenant has not undertaken any dilapidations, the only slight downside is that usually the lease will be short given the fact it would only be a sub lease or assignment rather than a new office lease direct from the landlord. 

Serviced Office

Serviced offices are offices in London that will offer a range of services, similar to a hotel, and then charge an inclusive amount for these. Usually one can estimate the value of an office within a serviced office building by working of a price per workstation. They are great options for businesses who need recovery space or for new startups. 


In Central London beyond serviced offices a new concept has arrived called Co-working which again is great for a new company who are trying to find their feet. The unfortunately disadvantage with co-working options is you have to share a room with many other businesses on a shared internet line. Not ideal if you are handling important client information.

Usually these offices are so attractive they cater for those looking for pure opulence.
