Why Workation in London?

You have convinced your boss that working from a different environment, skipping office commute and upgrading your morning coffee will boost your productivity and creativity so you can finally deliver that project you have been postponing for a while. Your bags are ready to be packed but you haven’t picked a destination yet.

As a city that inspires and creates opportunities at every corner, London is by far the best city for a workation. Who says you can’t join a meeting from the British Museum or send emails from London Eye? The city is full off shared working spaces and has a work-hard play culture which is ideal for a working holiday.

Switch off your laptop and switch on your camera, it’s time to explore London and get inspired.

Places to visit in London while on workation

Travel through time and find yourself in an 18th century London house where every piece of décor and furniture appears to have been taken out of an oil painting. Sit in silence and explore Dennis Severs House in Spitalfields, a statement to its curator’s love for history. Speaking of history, visit Tower Bridge, London’s sole bascule bridge which is still being raised around 800 times a year. If you are a thrill seeker you can walk on a glass floor 42 meters above River Thames. Exploring the city in the evening gives you the opportunity to see London through another lens, visiting a museum or taking advantage of the late night shopping or taking a walk over London Bridge is completely different once the sky darkens, or if you are visiting during the festive season enjoy the atmosphere and do some of the many Christmas activities the city has to offer.
