In need of a blank canvas in Central London that you can really kit out to suit your own needs? Then Whitfield Street Space is well worth considering.

By their very nature, photographic studios are often highly contemporary in design and feel, and whilst this in most cases is one of their biggest pluses, it can prove tricky if you wanted the convenience and adaptability of said studios but with the character and charm akin to an older building. If that is indeed what you are looking for, then you’re in luck, as that is exactly what Sunbeam Studios offers. This stunning Grade II listed building strikes the perfect balance between modern flair and period features with striking Edwardian details blending seamlessly with the modern-day touches.
Shoreditch Studios is another great offering if you would prefer a studio space with a little more charisma and history than the norm. This unique blank canvas sits beneath two railway arches, meaning it benefits from wonderful features including extensive exposed brickwork and the eye-catching arched ceilings, with the Victorian architecture dating right back to the 1860s. Able to suit almost any occasion, there is a good capacity on offer and plenty of options when it comes to getting to and from the venue, with the likes of Old Street and Shoreditch High Street just moments away.
