Serviced Offices

A serviced office is a dedicated office for you or your team within a business centre that offers a fully inclusive service. You simply decide upon your preferred location, select your ideal office, agree terms and move in. Depending upon the size of your team you can often move in the next day.

This type of solution has grown significantly over the last 10 years. Economic uncertainty has meant that organisations are cautious about the future. Ideally they do not want to be tied to long term leases for office space they no longer use.

Therefore, the demand for such space is growing and consequently more and more buildings are being acquired by operators of serviced offices. To help you cut through the vast choice of options, search for your ideal location here.

The benefits of serviced offices are very individual, depending upon your business need and what you are looking to achieve.

For a more detailed look at serviced offices, please read our buyers guide to flexible workspace and our viewing guide to make sure the space you view is best for you. To help you start thinking about the space you want, consider the following. All of these points impact how your office is priced.

How it's priced


Serviced office prices are primarily influenced by location. You will pay more for space in London than Manchester and more for a city centre location than an out of town location.

Building Type

A new purpose built building will typically command a higher price than a 30 year old building. Whereas iconic addresses regardless of age can be higher in price.


You will generally benefit from a lower monthly price, depending upon the amount of time you agree to take the space. However there is rarely any financial benefit for an agreement longer than 24 months.

Type of space

Where the space is located in the building may impact the price.

An internal office with no natural daylight will cost less than an office with a window.

A double aspect corner room or a room with a stunning view will cost more than a standard room with a window.
