Why Rent a Serviced Office in Canary Wharf?
If you’re looking to rent serviced offices Canary Wharf will provide plenty of options for the right type of business.
Located to the east of The City of London, Canary Wharf is by most standards a remarkable place. Regenerated from the derelict wastelands of the old London Docks some 30 years ago, Canary Wharf contrasts markedly to other, established areas of London. The glass and steel of skyscrapers is built on the footprint of the old docklands. This allows Canary Wharf to retain its connection both to the water and its heritage, whilst creating very interesting large, open spaces around the office buildings. The developers took the opportunity to build the very best. In some ways Canary Wharf resembles the office district of a large American city, but without the density or the intensity. Physically separated from the rest of the capital and partially surrounded by the meandering River Thames, Canary Wharf can feel like a mini-city in its own right.
Canary Wharf is home to global financial institutions, Barclays, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley all located in substantial office towers. Canary Wharf operates as London’s second financial district. The extensive Docklands Light Railway (DLR) connects the area internally and – importantly – provides rapid access to the City of London – the UK’s main financial district.
In recent years, alongside commercial office space, extensive residential space has also been developed which not only provides accommodation for some of the people who work in Canary Wharf, but has also transformed the atmosphere, with over 300 shops, restaurants and bars ensuring excellent after hours options and a good nightlife.
And the building continues: Wood Wharf is expected to be completed by 2023, a mixed use development of residential, business and retail space. Providing 3,300 new homes, it will also include just under 500,000 ft2 of shops and restaurants and nearly 2 million ft2 of new, high quality commercial office space.
Office space in Canary Wharf is dominated by the banks and other financial companies. Not unexpectedly, however this has led to a growth related businesses, providing support for the core financial occupiers. Serviced office space is a popular and easy options for such businesses. Business centres provide easy, accessible, flexible, cost-effective and modern offices close to the larger institutions. In particular, a serviced office in Canary Wharf is perfect for start ups who value proximity not just to other new ventures but also to established SMEs and corporates. The flexibility of serviced space allows you to grow your business at your own pace, with minimal risk.

Coworking arrangements include very flexible, fully furnished, open-plan workspace on short term, month to month contracts, with both hot-desks and dedicated desks as well as access to meeting rooms by the hour and other office facilities. Critically, coworking by definition opens up unparalleled opportunities for networking and collaboration.
However of course, shared office space isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Canary Wharf business centres also provide more traditional office arrangements – self-contained, private offices and executive office suites are all available, also on very flexible terms.
