Where to work out west

There’s a long and storied history of creatives and innovative businesses setting up shop in West London. From the early days of Richard Branson’s Virgin Records, to Vivienne Westwood’s punk boutique on the King’s Road, it’s been home to plenty of game-changing outfits over the years.

While epicentre of London’s startup culture might have shifted eastward, the west’s history and laidback feel is still an attraction for many. Here we round up some of the best co-working spaces the area has to offer. And for more places to work, check out our guides to the best coworking spaces in East London, North London, South London and Central London.

For a relaxed but focused atmosphere. The Refinery, minutes from the King’s Road in Chelsea, put an emphasis on creating a friendly working space for freelancers and startups, offering decent-sized desks and plenty of natural light. Making their pricing as transparent as possible, they include unlimited coffee, meeting room hire, printing and free hot desking vouchers in the monthly price. It starts from £240 a month for a hot desk membership.

The Workary

Want to be based in prime West London locations but don’t like the idea big overheads? If so, The Workary could be the place for you. An initiative started between the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council and startup Wimbletech, the aim is to offer under-utilised library spaces to startups and freelancers at affordable rates. They have sites in the likes of Chelsea, Kensington and Hammersmith. The offering may be more bare bones than other coworking spaces, but they still offer unlimited free tea and coffee.
