The Best Creative Spaces In Southampton
With two universities, four hospitals and organisations like SETsquared, the Web Science Institute and a wealth of burgeoning creatives, it’s no surprise that Southampton has supplied spaces to facilitate these fantastic and exciting ventures. Creative spaces are offices, conference rooms and studios that bring together freelancers, SME’s and large conglomerates. These funky spaces encourage collaboration and creation. They are the perfect spot for a week-long conference, merging business meetings or just getting creative on your own. We’ve found the best spots that are helping the business community in Southampton flourish:
The Lab, Southampton
Founded by Barclays bank and Southampton Council, these labs are a functional, flexible spot for all businesses. The Network Eagle labs are perhaps the biggest of the creative spaces in Southampton, with the best on-site facilities in the heart of the city and right in the cultural centre of the south coast. Amenities include kitchen facilities, showers, event and creative spaces in Southampton with all the technical equipment any tech or media business could wish for.
You can choose from the range of open plan seating in the free-style communal areas, a dedicated desk or a private office. The spaces are available to rent on a monthly basis so you can establish your start up at this central location without committing to proper overheads. Alternatively, your business can just hire the meeting spaces when hosting professionals or executives staying in Southampton. For night owls, the labs are available 24 hours a day.
These stylish creative spaces in Southampton are outfitted in the contemporary, industrial theme and encourage progression and inspiration. They are perfect for modern businesses, looking to adapt but still stay in touch with the community.

SO Fourteen is a fantastic little co-working spot, ideal for small, portable businesses that are looking for a more temporary base. This warm, cosy setting feels modern and inspiring.

SO Fourteen workspaces are located a little further away from the city centre, but are in the perfect spot for visitors staying in the popular Ocean Village complex.
