London sparkles with culture, history, and top-rated coworking spaces. Though it recently surpassed Hong Kong as the most expensive city in the world, visitors can't deny the darling, oh-so-British charm of this cosmopolitian UK city.
London is rich with history, which can be experienced by strolling along its little cobbled streets, entering one of the city's dimly-lit pubs or confronting one of its big, beautiful landmarks. There are also four UNESCO World Heritage sites within the ciry limits. Museums are everywhere too — of which the biggest and best are completely free.
The world-class music scene in London means you can bet your favorite artist will be in town while you're there. Even if they're not, it's easy to pop over to a different country for a weekend gig. After all, Heathrow is one of the busiest and biggest airports in the world, offering many low-cost flights abroad.
There's no sugar-coating that accommodation (and just about everything else) is rather expensive in London compared to other European capitals. Rent hovers around 3,000 pounds for a small, two-bedroom flat, and everything from transportation passes to beer come in at extortionately high prices. If you're counting your pennies, look further East (past Shoreditch towards Dalston in Hacknet, for example) where you'll receive better value for your money.
With an emerging entrepreneurial vibe spreading across the city from Soho to Shoreditch, it's been said that a new coworking space opens every single day in London. An abundance of creative entrepreneurs, an unpretentious atmosphere, and a gorgeous historical backdrop make London the place to be.

History of London Shared Office Spaces
London was one of the first places in the world to develop shared office rentals as we know them today. Most widely known of these trendsetters was the UK’s first-ever coworking space, called The Hub, based in Islington, London. The concept of coworking was introduced to the city by a group of students fresh off a trip to South Africa.
Now, London is often hailed as the capital of coworking thanks to major operators like IWG and WeWork continuing to expand in the city. With more shared office spaces than other major cities like New York and San Francisco, and occupying over 10 million sq.ft. of office space in central London alone, it is certainly one of the top cities to cowork around the world.
