8 best roof terraces in London's serviced offices
Summer is here, and once again it’s felt like a long time coming! Nobody likes to be stuck indoors when the sun’s out, especially when the hot weather is always so disappointingly fleeting. So, to really make the most of it, get yourselves to one of these roof terraces, pronto!
Remember - if any of these spaces take your fancy, you can arrange a viewing by contacting our team. We’re happy to show you round and treat you to a drink - al fresco of course!
1. Office Space in Town St Dunstans
Nothing quite beats sitting atop The Deck at this nautical themed serviced office in Monument, beverage in hand, looking down on the to-ings and fro-ings of busy central London life. Crew (or occupiers, as they are more formally known) can make full use of the roof terrace all year round. As you can see, The Deck is great space to hold an event in the summer months or to banquet in style with coworkers.
Non-members are welcome to book private events by contacting Eve at [email protected].
Enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace - incredible views included!
2. Us&Co Monument
Monument is the place to be this season, it seems! Our second rooftop beauty is situated atop one of London's newest and hottest coworking venues. Lovingly curated and design-led, the space plays host to dedicated desks and coworking areas, and each floor has its own free to use meeting room.
The Clubhouse it situated on the rooftop, and contains panoramic glass walls surrounding a copper bar. The entire floor can be hired for all sorts of events by members and non-members. Check out the space for yourself at the eCoworking Conference happening 15th & 16th June - tickets here.

3. The Office Group Marylebone
This Baroque beauty built in the 19th century is situated on Wimpole Street - a quiet oasis just around the corner from bustling Oxford Street. Mixing old with new, the interior has been renovated to include a glass atrium and a fantastic rooftop garden filled with plants. With the capacity to accommodate 75, this is the perfect spot for a work summer party or barbecue.
A peaceful place in one of the busiest parts of London.

The last outdoor space on our list belongs to a fully-serviced business centre in the heart of the city's financial district, just 100 yards from the Bank of England and 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street Station.
