The explosion of the Tech community in the UK has seen the rapid creation of many co-working options, and the move away from traditional private members clubs. There is now real depth in the offering, with everything from casual touchdown desks to fully serviced private offices, so here is our practical field guide to the UK’s top co-working spots.
As a rule of thumb, in London depending on location and spec, expect to pay from £250 – £1,200 p/ dedicated desk p/ month in a fully serviced space.
