Co-working in Bristol
Bristol has always led the way in terms of offering decent co-working spaces for remote workers. Today there are more spaces than ever available to rent a desk, office or meeting room by the hour, day or week.
Every week sees a new space launched and the prices aren’t too shabby either. You can get to a co-working space within easy reach of your home or find one on the doorstep of many transport hubs across the city. With so many people working in these hubs you never know what might happen or who you might meet.
We have created a list of our favourites to help you when selecting your new home in Bristol. Even the magazine co-working spaces have written a piece about the variety of co-working hubs in the city.
The Engine Shed
Bristol is full of office space and some of the best co-working hubs in the UK exist within its boundaries. Step off the train at Bristol Temple Meads and within a few seconds you can be hard at work in the Engine Shed.
Led by the University of Bristol in collaboration with Bristol City Council and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Engine Shed is a hub where businesses, entrepreneurs, academics, social innovators, and corporates collaborate. Engine Shed showcases the strengths and innovations of the region by providing space, creating encounters and running projects that inspire, enable, and challenge us all.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking to work alongside like-minded individuals, a developing business with big ambitions, or a freelancer or remote worker seeking an inspiring coworking space, Origin Workspace gives you so much more than a stylish desk space.
