Home to the internationally renowned University of Cambridge (dating back to 1209) and sitting approximately 80km north of London, Cambridge is a hot bed for innovative brains. Almost a quarter of its population comes under the heading of "students", so this is a lively and dynamic city overflowing with cafes and bars. The heart of the high-technology "Silicon Fen" with industries such as software and bioscience, many startup companies are born here. More than 40% of the workforce has a higher education qualification, more than twice the national average. This is also where you will find the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (one of the largest biomedical research clusters in the world), so it is little wonder that coworking spaces have popped up in this city of brains.
Once a trading center for the Romans and the Vikings, there is evidence that a settlement has been here since the Bronze Age. College buildings as well as the spire of Our Lady, the English Martyrs Church, the chimney of Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Chapel Tower of St John's College dominate the city's skyline. The Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology also has its main campus located in the city. Coworking in this city is as common as punting the River Cam or students indulging in a bit of night climbing of college buildings.
This is the city where Lord Byron wasn't allowed to keep a dog in his rooms at Trinity College Cambridge, so he kept a bear instead. With a history of such in-your-face attitudes, the United Kingdom has had over 40% of all European tech unicorns based within its borders. The United Kingdom is actually the 2nd biggest destination in the world for venture capital money on a per capita basis and has over 1.56 million jobs in the digital tech economy. For coworking spaces this is music to their ears, as they endeavor to keep up with the demand and to offer more than its neighbor by way of benefits and perks.
