8 of the Best Manchester Coworking Spaces

Arrow down blue

When it comes to amazing coworking space, Manchester is home to some of the UK’s very best. The city has always been a real hive of industry, with its roots steeped in the Industrial Revolution - old mills (now converted, many of them into shared working spaces) still line the city’s canal network today. 

In the 21st century, Manchester has become a key centre for businesses in the digital, creative, fashion and technology industries, with companies including Adidas, Kellogg’s, the Co-operative Group and ITV all basing their HQs in Greater Manchester. There’s no doubt that the city is a buzzing, exciting place to be. If you want in on the action, take a look at our pick of the best Manchester coworking spaces.

8 of the Best Coworking Spaces Manchester Workers Can Use

From converted former power stations to modern skyscrapers and purpose-built coworking spaces, Manchester-based teams have their pick of some truly fabulous spaces. Here are just some of the best Manchester coworking offices available at Flexioffices:
