Bloomsbury: a commercial guide for businesses looking for office space in London
Bloomsbury is a district essentially just above Covent Garden. It’s history is that it’s traditionally the home of the publishing sector, but there are many other types of occupiers there. They were historically attracted to the area because there were some big buildings built, and in those days, they were considered pretty much state of the art, and very good for a modern office. There hasn’t actually been an awful lot of redevelopment in that area since. There has been some, but not as in some areas. It has attracted other companies, media, and that type of occupier. This is largely driven by the lower rents in the area.
There’s another driver for this area, and that’s that if you’re a northern based company and want a London office, it’s terrific to get to Bloomsbury because of the three mainline stations, St. Pancras, Euston, and King’s Cross. You can come into those stations and walk into your office, really very easily. It’s a cost effective location, and it’s an interesting area. What’s so good about it? Well, it’s really driven by those three stations. And of course, great interest is St. Pancras Station itself with its gaudy like architecture, recently refurbished, and it really is a superb bit of architecture.

Bloomsbury Office Rental Guide
NB. Leased office rents, rates and service charge are quoted per ft2 per year.
The above rental estimates reflect good quality (but not prime) air conditioned offices. More expensive and cheaper accommodation will generally be available.
Rent rates and service charge estimates are only intended as a guide. Office space is often available with costs outside these guidelines.
Negotiated rent free incentives will often make the net effective rent, lower than the above estimates.
Business rates payable will vary from year to year, changing each April, due to annual changes in the Uniform Business Rate. Higher rates are paid for brand new buildings.

Modern Bloomsbury was developed during the 16th and 17th Century, initially as a largely residential area. Steeped in literary history, Bloomsbury now has a great variety of real estate, including the British Museum, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and famous University of London colleges such as UCL. The London office headquarters of Bloomsbury Publishing PLC – now a global brand – is in Bedford Square.
Offices are often found in the garden squares that dominate the area – Bloomsbury Square, Bedford Square, Russell Square and Gordon Square, for example. With a full range of buildings, office space in Bloomsbury attracts every type of business – from publishers to government departments, media companies, professionals and financial services.
As is the case across most of central London, a wide range of office types can be found in Bloomsbury: offices to let on traditional long-term leases remain the most common type of space for the time being, athough flexible, serviced offices in Bloomsbury are are rapidly growing in demand and availability. Bloomsbury co-working space, virtual offices and flexible meeting rooms are also popular options – particularly for start up businesses. These alternative spaces are quickly transforming the London office market – and Bloomsbury is no exception.
Offices in Bloomsbury are considerably cheaper than more central locations, but the area has very good communications with the newly redeveloped Tottenham Court Road tube station – transformed for the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) opening in 2018. For national rail, Euston Station is to the north.
