The Story of Edinburgh House

The Story of Edinburgh House

Right in the heart of Kennington you'll find Edinburgh House, part of Workspace®'s growing portfolio of stylish and flexible office spaces. Set over six floors, with an impressive choice of office and studio space, here's a roundup of everything you need to know about the new build.

Workspace® property, Edinburgh House, in Kennington offers the perfect creative work environment with a contemporary feel throughout.

"The beautiful exterior only gets better when you walk in with offices, studios and meeting rooms all set around a spectacular central atrium flooded with natural light. It makes for a great environment to work in and impress clients." says Centre Manager, Victoria.


Less than a ten-minute walk from Kennington tube station and only a short walk or bus away from Elephant and Castle, and major junctions at Vauxhall and Clapham Junction, Edinburgh House Workspace® is easily acessible from all Zone 1 transport links. Yet, the area also offers plenty of leafy spots to escape busy city life. Kennington Park, Harmsworth Park and the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens are all just some of the green oases within walking distance – all flanked by an eclectic mix of cafes, shops and restaurants.

It's no wonder Kennington and Oval remain a hotspot for workers looking for an office location that balances local feel and London buzz. A trusted pub is never far. In fact, the streets of Kennington are home to some of the best food and drink south of the river – The Ship, the Prince of Wales on Cleaver Square, the Tommyfield, and the Jolly Gardeners are among some of its not-so-hidden gems.


Edinburgh House stands in the footprint of Kennington Palace's old stables. Turn back the clock to 1346 and Edward Woodstock – Edward III's eldest son, later dubbed 'The Black Prince' – had started work on the palace. From the early 1340s until about 1350, building records suggest that Edward had busied himself constructing a magnificent hall and selection of chambers, including the Prince's chamber. But all was demolished by Henry VIII in 1531 to use the materials to build the Palace of Whitehall.

Today, Edinburgh House marks the spot where the palace and stables stood in the triangle formed by Kennington Lane, Sancroft Street and Cardigan Street.


Edinburgh House is decked out with features great for businesses to thrive. From high spec bookable meeting rooms, stylish offices and studios and lots of breakout aeas, the building offers space to both work and relax. The light-trapping central atrium is the perfect place to welcome clients and customers, work, take a break, or meet the neighbours. Plus its on-site café means a steaming brew is never far.

The shiny new build is also complete with energy efficient lighting, multi-zoned air-conditioning, two modern lifts, six shower and changing facilities and superfast Internet connectivity throughout. What's more, fifty covered and secure cycle spaces located on the complex make it perfect for anyone cycling into work.
