With summer around the corner and the great British outdoors beckoning, workers returning to the London office post-Covid are looking for outdoor space. Somewhere outside of the four walls of their office they can sit, relax and soak up the sun while eating lunch.

Historically roof terraces in conventional leases have been hard to come by, but with serviced offices there has been an ever-growing trend and upward increase in adding roof terraces to developments. Below are some of the best rooftop terraces that could be only a moments’ walk from your office’s front door.

Uncommon – Liverpool Street

The heart of the city and home to London’s most iconic skyscrapers, the well-connected Liverpool Street workspace is right next to the main transport links, for easy access across London and beyond. With a rooftop with amazing views of the London skyline, no matter the time of year or weather. Whether it’s drinks or lunch breaks, it’s perfect for all occasions!


TOG – Thomas House

This building really has it all. With generous ceiling heights and an abundance of natural light, you enter to a vast, open plan ground floor with spaces for eating, meeting, working and events. Natural materials and plants give a sense of wellbeing throughout, a sense that is complemented with meditation rooms, a music room, a library, a cavernous gym and two garden terraces with views across the city.

With 360-degree views of London, the roof garden at Thomas House is the perfect spot to re-energise.

Us&Co Monument

Boasting stunning views of London City and the Thames, this co-working space in Monument is ideal for start-ups or established businesses. From private office space to dedicated desks, they have created a professional workspace to suit the needs of every working professional. Upstairs contains panoramic glass walls surrounding the penthouse bar, perfect for impressing clients with the perfect view of The Shard and Walkie Talkie building!

Located at the heart of the city, 20 St Dunstan’s Hill is a short walk from Monument, Bank, London Bridge and Fenchurch Street Station. As you can see, The Deck is great space to hold an event in the summer months or to banquet in style with co-workers.

  1. Landmark – Kings Cross

This is an iconic period building with a lighthouse on its roof. Projecting a striking image visible from nearby Kings Cross station, with five newly refurbished floors blending old and new to create a modern mix of collaboration space and private offices for all to enjoy.
