The Best New Flexible Workspaces in the UK & Ireland

The way we work has been in constant change over the last few decades. Whereas 50 years ago cubicles were king and 25-year office leases were the norm, nowadays it’s all about flexibility to get the best out of your office space and your employees. Flexible workspaces offer all the benefits of a “conventional” office space but, as the name suggests, are much more flexible. This can be a real draw for business owners, especially where start-ups and smaller firms are involved, as flexible workspaces can cut office costs drastically without compromising on quality or amenities.

Remote and flexible working is becoming more common for many firms, and whilst working from home has its benefits, it’s definitely not for everyone. Even with the best of intentions, working from home can be distracting, especially if you have children, pets or a partner to contend with. Flexible workspaces, co-working spaces and serviced offices bridge the gap between the flexibility and comfort of home-based working and the functionality of office-based working. They can be massively beneficial for both the business and the individual, offering a range of work spaces suitable for every price point. But the huge variety means it can be difficult to know where to start! So we’ve put together a list of some of the best upcoming flexible workspaces and coworking spaces throughout the UK & Ireland we have discovered to make your decision that bit easier…
