South of the Thames and stretching from Waterloo to London Bridge, Southwark is an increasingly popular location, particularly among businesses looking for more affordable office space to let.
Sitting within the SE1 postcode district, Southwark is located conveniently close to the bustling heart of business that is the City of London and the area has developed into a business hub of its own within recent years. Many new developments have been completed on the beautiful south side of the river within the past decade and the expansion in the area doesn’t show any signs of slowing, particularly with the current construction of One Blackfriars Tower and the regeneration of the surrounding area.
Popular with: A wide variety of organisations looking for more affordable serviced office space in Central London; an up-and-coming destination for the media sector. For businesses that are regularly entertaining clients this area is also a popular destination in which to dine and enjoy a drink. Memorable locations include the OXO tower where dinner is accompanied by a beautiful river view and the more extravagant Restaurant Story for those who are really aiming to impress.
Property types available: A mix of modern, purpose-built office blocks and converted industrial buildings. The area provides a great balance of old and new with some stunning architecture within both categories. The area also incorporates the award-winning More London development and an increasing number of premium and design-led offices. The iconic Shard sits within Southwark close to London Bridge and presents high quality office space to let as well as many phenomenal public areas and unforgettable views across London.
Atmosphere: There is abundant history surrounding Southwark and there is plenty to observe during pre or post work hours. The millennium was hugely celebrated in this locality and there is still much excitement to be felt when working within the area. The London Eye provides one of the most famous views associated with London and is visible right from your desk within many Southwark office rental buildings. Being so close to the river with views of the infamous London Bridge and with the opportunity to spend lunch breaks within the beautiful Millennium Green Park or Borough Market (one of London’s largest and oldest food markets), the area is aesthetically pleasing for those who both work and visit here.
