If you're in the habit of working away from home, and are looking for something *particularly* pretty, don't miss your chance to hunker down at Bubba Oasis.

Housed inside a Grade II-listed Georgian mansion, this Hammersmith members club is providing you with the perfect place to freelance in London. Set yourself up in one of their many rooms where you'll be able to work in peace, before stopping for lunch or a coffee and grabbing some sun on their outdoor terrace.

People's Park Tavern

If you're someone who finds themselves easily distracted, the People's Park Tavern is a great London pub to freelance from. With a bustling main bar downstairs, quieter upstairs bar and huge beer garden, you never have to go far for a change of scenery. And if you hit a wall completely then you can blow off steam with a couple of rounds of crazy golf in the garden, or enjoy a walk round neighbouring Victoria Park to refocus the mind. 

This beloved Dalston boozer isn't just a haven for live music and Friday night antics, it's also a cracking place to settle in and crack on with work. In the daytime, it provides a cosy nook for the freelance community to crack on and enjoy a pint once they're all done.

Open from 8am every weekday, Exmouth Market's Caravan offers a top cafe for freelancers in London. Based in the heart of Islington, it does fantastic coffee, tasty breakfast and lunches, and offers a relaxed spot for working in or out on their al fresco terrace.
