If you want to work in a quirky business centre in the heart of south London, look no further than Shakespeare Business Centre in Brixton. We offer a range of commercial units to let, including offices, studios, workshops, two meeting rooms and coworking space.

The converted Victorian warehouse consists of two three storey buildings, the East Wing and West Wing, which surround a small external courtyard. These contain 79 commercial units, ranging from 90 – 2,500 square feet (8.30 – 232 square metres).

Our customers in this vibrant business centre are largely from the creative arts and culture sector. However, we are also home to companies in the professional sector and it is this variety that helps give it a strong community feel.

Shakespeare Business Centre will be benefitting from some major refurbishments in the coming year. For the latest information on these works, please subscribe to our newsletter or contact our centre manager.

Where are we?

We're a short walk away from Brixton, with its busy market and choice of restaurants, banking and shopping facilities.

Brixton underground station is a 10-minute walk away. As such it has excellent public transport networks to central London and further afield. Loughborough Junction is even closer - a 3-minute walk via Coldharbour Lane. Herne Hill rail station is 0.6 miles away. Buses 35,45, 345, P4 and P5 stop close to the centre.

We're just a three-minute drive to the A23, and the A3 is less than ten minutes away. Please note that there is, unfortunately, no parking on site, but given its central location and proximity to both rail and tube, most of our customers don't need to drive.

We provide three meeting and conference rooms within the Business Centre. Hire comes with:

- wifi access

- use of a flip chart

- white board

- pens and paper

- unlimited, self-serve tea and coffee

If you need catering, please ask us about options when you make your booking.

We have a number of workshops for rent, based in the East Wing of the business centre, that can also be used as storage space. These are available to let on an unfurnished basis, so you can tailor the space to your needs.


The Work Lounge in Brixton offers a completely flexible workspace. The large shared office provides a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere for anyone who doesn’t want to work in isolation.

The contemporary workspace contains exposed brick walls and modern furniture. Its full-height windows provide plenty of natural sunlight and you can help yourself to free hot and cold drinks from the kitchen.

There is a combination of dedicated desks and quiet areas, allowing you to work independently while still benefiting from an environment where you can chat with and get to know other co-workers.

The coworking space is open 9am – 6pm and has a capacity for up to 40 people. There is no need to book a space, but you do need to register as a NearDesk user and be allocated an access card, which also controls payment. If you are not a NearDesk member, please speak to the centre manager, who can help to set this up. We offer several flexible payment options:

- Pay-as-you-go: £3 per hour, with a daily capped limit of £25

- Weekly saver: £65 for 5 days of unrestricted access

- Monthly access, no allocated desk: £150 a month, with unrestricted access

- Monthly access with dedicated desk: £195 per month, with unrestricted access
