Best Private Offices East London

When there are already so many spaces to choose from and even more popping up by the day,

where can you find the best private offices in East London?

East London has become known as an essential business district in London. Especially those in or servicing the creative industries.

There is, of course, the infamously aloof and overpriced Shoreditch. However, did you know that just a few short miles away there are neighbourhoods where fledgeling businesses and growing established companies are flocking for a more authentic experience at a much more cost-effective price?

East London covers a wide range of areas. From the newly appointed Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) Hackney Wick and its close neighbour, the up and coming Leyton area that nestles on the fringes of Culture Capital, Waltham Forest and the dazzling Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Let’s not forget the rejuvenated Docklands area, with a lot of embedded history.

There is truly something for everyone in East London.

There are a host of posh private offices in East London with beer on tap and a populous of remote ‘nine to fivers’ and well-funded tech startups to the more basic and raw spaces with communities of founders and entrepreneurs seeking a more intimate and authentic vibe.

If you are looking for private office space in and around East London, you are certainly spoiled for choice. You could get everything here – from super-creative workspaces to your startup-focused environment. If you own a startup and are looking for a positive atmosphere and a fresh community feel, East London won’t disappoint you even a bit!

No wonder that East London is among the most popular destination for businesses.

More and more businesses are ditching their leased premises and making a move to a more affordable and hassle-free private office in a shared workspace or coworking space.

Many spaces provide as much, or as little as you need to drive your business forward. Depending on your budget!


As a standard, any functional workspace must have:

  • Amazingly fast broadband
  • 24-hour secure access
  • Caring staff
  • Meeting rooms
  • Kitchen/Communal Area
  • Other people working from there


Most of the shared workspaces that provide private offices in East London are designed to foster an excellent ambience. These are generally places where people are productive and enjoy working. Also, they are places where people feel they contribute to the growth of others by being generous with their knowledge and expertise plus have the opportunity to work collaboratively.


Here is a list of some of our favourites.


Netil House

In a  monolithic 60’s building on London Fields. Netil House is home to a community of creative leaders driving culture.

At the heart of the E8 neighbourhood and moments from Broadway Market, on-site spaces include iconic rooftop Netil360, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Workspaces range from the dramatic and aspirational to the intimate. In an environment that nurtures connectivity and friendship, residents share ideas and engage in new projects.

We have a special love for Netil House as they were very helpful sharing knowledge when we were starting out with Mainyard. Plus we just think what they do is awesome.
