Despite the country’s decision to leave the EU, London remains a giant among global cities and the gateway to doing business in Europe. The pandemic saw the capital’s streets fall quiet as restaurants and pubs closed their doors, but adaptable companies of all sizes still found opportunities to thrive in these challenging circumstances.

Today, London is leading the UK out of one of the most economically tumultuous periods in living memory, helped along by a new and more flexible approach to how and where we work. It makes sense that British and international companies are looking for professional coworking spaces that can quickly scale to meet their needs, and that freelancers and startups in London need room away from home to grow their business.
