A Guide to Canary Wharf’s Office Rental Space

More than 120,000 people and counting choose to work in Canary Wharf, and the business community consists of a dynamic combination of start-ups, scale-ups and industry leaders ranging from EY and Revolut to Apple.

As a result, choosing an office at E14 and Canary Wharf isn’t just about finding four walls and space for a desk. It’s about choosing an environment that attracts and retains top talent, giving you access to an ecosystem that enables business opportunities as well as work/life balance.

Does that mean that the cost of office space to rent in E14 is prohibitive? Not at all. Canary Wharf has a range of office spaces and associated office rental prices to choose from, so businesses of all sizes can be part of this vibrant hub of connectivity.


What factors affect office rental prices?

Typically, office rental prices are influenced by a variety of factors including:

  • Location

In London, the demand for office space is high, but it’s not just any office space.
