About the Work Lounge

The Work Lounge is a shared office environment for businesses and individuals who do not need or want to commit to renting their own office. What does it offer you?

  • High speed WiFi
  • A dedicated kitchen with complimentary hot and cold drinks
  • Separate toilet facilities
  • Large windows letting in plenty of natural light
  • Variety of desks to choose from – high tables, large tables or tub chair seating

We also have three separate offices within the coworking space, combining the benefits of access to the Work Lounge facilities with your own dedicated space. Please contact us for pricing of these offices.


You do not need to book the space in advance – just register at reception and once you have your membership card, you can come and go as you please.

We have two payment options:

  • pay as you go, £5 per hour with a daily capped limit of £30
  • monthly package of £150 which includes a free mailbox.

Meetups and regular events

We hold networking events throughout the year. If you're interested in using our space for a networking event, please get in touch and we'll do our best to help

Additional services

Based within the Empress Business Centre, the Work Lounge benefits from free car parking, an onsite team who provide photocopying and faxing, and several meeting rooms that can be rented by the hour.
