Farringdon is a popular hub for architecture and design companies, as well as creatives from all walks of life. Clerkenwell Design Week takes place just north of the area. Every May, it sees the cobbled streets come alive with a variety of innovative installations.
Startups have been opting for deskspace in Farringdon in recent years, incentivised by its competitive desk rates and excellent links to the West End and the City. Once the Elizabeth Line opens, it’ll be one of the most well-connected locations in the UK.
There’s plenty to enjoy inside and out of office hours. Department of Coffee and Social Affairs is a much loved social and meetings spot, and the nearby Exmouth Market provides an array of lunch time options, from risottos and pasta dishes to delicious curries.
