Why Rent a Serviced Office in Waterloo?
If you’re looking to rent serviced offices in Waterloo and Southwark, you’ll find the twin benefits of an excellent location and reduced costs. The area encompasses the South Bank of the Thames, directly opposite Holborn and The City of London. It stretches from Westminster Bridge, past Southwark to London Bridge. Critically, Waterloo offices are within walking distance of The City and Holborn but with significantly lower costs. Serviced office rents in Waterloo are at the lower end compared to the London office market as a whole.
Dramatic changes on the South Bank create new workspace options
Historically Waterloo was a rather dull area. Commuters would pass through on their way from the railway station to the West End or The City. Renting office space in Waterloo would certainly not have been many companies’ first choice. However in recent years, massive regeneration has transformed the area with commercial property now dominating the landscape. London Bridge Station has been completely rebuilt alongside the Shard – now the tallest building in London. The Shard is a high profile, mixed use development, including the Shangri-La Hotel, retail space, residential and office space to rent. And development of the Waterloo and Southwark is ongoing, with seemingly a new office building under construction every time you walk past!
Many more businesses now begin and end their office search in Waterloo, such is its newfound desirability. Certainly, if you are considering serviced offices, Waterloo has much to offer. In particular, the Tate Modern, the National Theatre and the Royal Festival Hall burnish the area’s reputation for the arts. Additionally, street theatre, busking and attractions such Borough Market create a buzzy atmosphere day and night. Alongside the many new office buildings, restaurants and street food outlets pepper the South Bank.
As a consequence many media, entertainment and tech companies now rent office space here. Waterloo is now also an ideal location for the insurance and financial sectors. Lower costs and a contemporary atmosphere make it preferable for many to renting serviced office space in The City.
What does a Waterloo business centre offer?
Waterloo business centres collectively offer a full range of serviced office space solutions. Freelancers, entrepreneurs or start ups looking for hot desking workstations or coworking spaces (in shared office space) won’t be disappointed. Similarly, more established businesses searching for a self-contained executive office suite are also catered for. Most Waterloo providers also offer meeting room hire by the hour as well as virtual office services, if you’re only after a South Bank business address.
Above all, the terms for serviced office solutions are extremely flexible. Simply rent a single workstation in an open plan office on a month to month basis, scaling up as you expand your desk space at your own pace. Perfect, flexible workspace for both a start up and growing business! Serviced or managed office space typically comes fully furnished and include both high speed broadband internet and telecoms as standard in a single monthly bill – along with your rent.
In addition to Waterloo and London Bridge mainline terminus stations, the London Underground provides swift transport links to and from the West End and The City
Team London Bridge acts as a central hub for local business, organising networking events and providing local commercial data. The Southwark Chamber of Commerce also runs regular meetings for its members.
There are a host of restaurants along the South Bank – notably the Baltic Restaurant, The Laughing Gravy and The Oxo Tower. At London Bridge, Wright Brothers in Borough Market is a highly respected seafood restaurant.
