Farringdon area guide

Farringdon is one of the most popular business areas in London, offering close proximity to the centre of the city as well as the ever-popular Clerkenwell region. This, combined with the lower costs when compared to some of the more central locations makes it ideal for businesses in their earlier days.

Farringdon contains a wide range of different commercial spaces, ranging from smaller studios all the way through to larger buildings perfect for a corporate HQ.  The fact that so many businesses base themselves in the Farringdon area means it’s ideal for networking, which in turn attracts even more companies to the area.

Transport links to Farringdon are excellent, with both underground and mainline services available from Farringdon station. The local area – and that of Clerkenwell – are great places in which to work., too, offering a variety of attractions as well as excellent food and drink. Whatever your business, Farringdon is well worth your consideration.

What companies does it suit?

The range of available office space means that Farringdon lends itself well to B2B companies. As mentioned above, there is a lot of office space in the Farringdon area, so the opportunities for building new relationships is substantial. 

The sheer amount of potential space also means that businesses are more likely to find the office that directly suits them. As a result, the area isn’t strictly limited to B2B: there are spaces that could be tailored into artistic studios, or even into retail units.

Transport to the Farringdon area is very good, with a number of underground and services available within easy reach.  Notable close stations include:



Chancery Lane


King’s Cross St Pancras

Farringdon and the nearby Clerkenwell offer a lot of options for anyone looking for anything from a post-work coffee to a three-course meal. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it nearby.

Our favourite pubs and bars in the area include the Zetter Townhouse, which has the atmosphere of a country mansion as well as a host of great drinks, the Craft Beer Company(which has become more and more popular in recent years) as well as Vinoteca, one of the most popular wine bars in the capital.

If food and drink is what you’re after, we’d heavily recommend trying St John, which makes use of local produce to produce some unique (and tasty) dishes. We’d also recommend taking a look at Bird of Smithfield, which covers five floors and includes everything from a rooftop bar to a private dining room and serves everything from breakfast to late-night cocktails. Sushi Tetsu, meanwhile, offers up some of the finest sushi in the city.

For those seeking to head out on the town, we’d definitely recommend Fabric, which always puts on a brilliant night and regularly attracts the biggest nights in the club scene. Fabric is nearly always rammed, and with good reason. If a brilliant night out is what you want, head there.

Museum of the Order of St John

Museum of the Order of St John is one of the more fascinating museums in the capital, and the 16th century gatehouse – the southern entrance to the former priory – is now a quite unique museum that anyone with an interest in history should visit.

St Etheldreda's Church

St Etheldreda’s Church, meanwhile, is the oldest Catholic Church in London, and one of the few surviving buildings from the reign of Edward the First.  Today, it’s a must-visit if you’re in the Farringdon area.
