Our London office, located at 10 Lower Thames Street, is our UK headquarters and our largest sales office. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and historical monuments such as the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, our London office boasts stunning views from the 7th floor of the former Northern and Shell building.

Just a short walk across London Bridge from London Bridge station, and close to a number of tube stations and bus stops, our London office is easily commutable from all over London as well as commuter towns on the outskirts. A lot of our team like to grab a coffee on the way into the office and admire the stunning London skyline in the morning.

Central London is the hub of the UK, and our central London location means that there are many great options for lunch nearby and lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy after a day at work. Our team regularly socialises in the many pubs, bars, and restaurants that central London has to offer. We also like to enjoy team-bonding activities at some of the brilliant London entertainment venues such as mini golf, Life-sized Monopoly, bowling, and more!
