Ask someone to name the coolest, quirkiest part of London, and they’ll likely say Camden. Renowned for its buzzing market, diverse culture and rich history, people love the area because of its individuality and flair. All this makes it a special place to visit. But what about a workspace in Camden?    

Believe it or not, it’s a magnet for start-ups.  

In fact, Camden holds the title for the most new businesses per capita than any other London borough, with 13,646 new companies per 100,000 residents in 2023. That’s almost 3,500 more companies than the year before.  

Camden is clearly a hotspot for business owners and professionals. In this blog, we’ll delve a little deeper into why so many people choose a Camden office space. 

Breezy commute 

Let’s kick things off with one of the biggest considerations when working in London – the commute! Spoiler alert: Camden is super accessible.  

Camden Town has its own tube station on the Northern line, so you can reach places like London Bridge, Waterloo and London Liverpool Street in less than 15 minutes. Plus, King’s Cross, St Pancras and Euston stations are on your doorstep. So, it’s super easy to get in, around and out of London for whatever your business needs. 

A workspace in Camden also means you can get to central London quickly and easily – perfect for entertaining or meeting clients and enjoying all London has to offer without being in the real thick of it. 

Overground services are available at Camden Road, Kentish Town, and Kentish Town West stations, connecting you to the likes of Stratford, Richmond, Luton, and Sutton.  

And, if the bus is more your style, there are plenty of options in Camden Town and Kentish Town. 

Basically, working in an office in Camden means you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to getting around! 

Thriving business hub  

Camden’s proximity to King’s Cross, St Pancras and Euston stations makes it part of London’s Knowledge Quarter, which has helped the area’s economy really take off in recent years.  

The Knowledge Quarter is overflowing with scientific, academic, cultural and knowledge-based institutions and organisations. This is awesome news for emerging businesses! 

Camden Council is committed to continuing this growth and development by investing money, expertise and resources into the area.  

They’ve rolled out initiatives like the Future Camden Fund, LIFT and the Knowledge Quarter 2050 strategy to back business and employment support. 

And it’s not just start-ups and small businesses plumping for an office in Camden. Big names like Atlantic Books, Associated Press Television News, and Palgrave Macmillan are set up here, too. All benefiting from the area’s creative vibe and close connections to other business hubs in London. 

This mix of businesses is a huge draw for entrepreneurs and professionals from all sorts of industries. 

Plenty to see and do 

Now, we’re all about a happy work-life balance over here. So, of course, we’re going to shout about Camden’s social scene.  

A Camden office space is ideal as there’s so much to do nearby. We’re talking endless food options, team activities, and the beautiful  Regent’s Park, only a short walk away when the sun shines.    

For the inside scoop on the best after-work spots, we turned to our man on the ground – Work.Life Camden Membership Manager Jon Watson: 

“Some great places to go are Junkyard Golf, Babylon Park (indoor amusement park!) and the many big and small music venues, like Roundhouse, Electric Ballroom, Underworld and Camden Assembly. 

“Camden Eye and the Oxford Arms do a lot of comedy nights. There’s also loads of pubs that do quizzes, which is a great way to spend an evening.” 

Epic eateries  

We’re not saying you should choose an office location based on the nearby food options. But we’re not, not saying it. 

When those cravings hit, you can be sure to find somewhere close to your office in Camden, whether you’re looking for a quick lunchtime bite or a laidback meal after work.  

Discover canalside eateries at Camden Lock or sample flavours from around the world at one of the borough’s markets. Did you know that Camden is home to at least 19 regular markets? 

We also have it on good authority that Funky Chips, Three Uncles, Blues Kitchen and Mildreds are well worth a visit, too. 

Diverse communities 

Camden’s dynamic environment and rich history attract people from all walks of life. This mix isn’t just fun; it’s good for business. A diverse, inclusive workplace improves office productivity, and Camden has it in spades. 

Working in a serviced office space in Camden puts you right next to this amazing energy, and all these inspiring people you might not otherwise meet. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn from and be inspired by people with different takes on things. 

Throw the area’s entrepreneurial spirit into the mix, and it’s no surprise that a Camden office remains a top choice for business owners and professionals.
