Situated in the heart of Bloomsbury, this flexible workspace will become a dedicated place to work, rest and connect, catering for every aspect of the modern way of working.

Grafter, Ireland’s first work-lifestyle brand that was established in 2021, already operates a beautiful collection of design-led buildings in Dublin, including Leeson House at 41 Leeson Street Lower and Ely House at 10 Ely Place, and is now set to expand into the UK with Bedford House.

Bedford House’s fully-serviced offering is complete with premium in-house hospitality typical of Grafter and spotlighting incredible products from their partners. Members can receive meeting room breakfast and private catering at lunch in their work spaces, accompanied by selected organic wines from Château La Coste, Grafter’s partner winery, a family-owned vineyard in Provence, as well as chilled Italian bottled beer and mineral waters. In their stylish kitchens, members can prepare their morning coffee, enjoying Italian almond biscotti or fresh, artisan toast from the Gail’s bread station.

The opening of Bedford House in Bloomsbury will provide a space for members to stimulate conviviality; fostering social exchanges, facilitating connection and creative collaboration. Not only does it joining a strong institution of educational venues in the area, the British Museum and The British Library are illustrious neighbours, but it also has London on its doorstep making it a working solution for businesses of all sizes. Within a 5-minute walk to Soho, 10 minutes to Mayfair, and with several tube stations just a stone’s throw away, members will also enjoy the surrounding vibrancy of its enviable city-centre location.

Emma Kennedy, CEO of Grafter says, “we are very excited to announce our expansion into the UK. Our members frequently travel back and forth between Ireland and the UK, so we felt it was important to have a base in Central London”.
