Next up in our series celebrating Clockwise’s flexible workspace across the UK and beyond, we head to the port city of Southampton to discover a thriving business community in a landmark building.
Southampton is having another big moment in a history of big moments.
This thriving waterfront city is no stranger to connecting directly to important moments in English history, from William the Conqueror’s invasion to the sailing of the Mayflower and the Battle of Agincourt to its role in the maiden (and final) voyage of the Titanic.
But while Southampton is home to the best preserved medieval gateway in the country and features prominently in the stories of King Canute, this is not a city whose attractions lay solely in the past.
In the words of Clockwise COO Alexandra Brunner: “Southampton is home to a thriving community of entrepreneurs, start-ups and growing businesses so it was a natural decision for us to have a presence there at such an exciting time as we expand our southern business hub.”
Located in the landmark Mountbatten House on Grosvenor Square, Clockwise Southampton provides serviced offices for start-ups, scale-ups and freelancers at a prestigious address without the inflexible contracts of the more traditional workspace.
Just a ten-minute walk from Southampton Central train station, Mountbatten House has been fully refurbished to include open-plan office space, bright and airy meeting rooms, wrap-around banquettes for collaboration and a calming neutral colour scheme that reflects the city’s long-standing connection to the water.
Our serviced offices are located right in the centre of the dynamic business district and boast everything you could possibly need from a home, for work, including:
- 24/7 access
- Unlimited, high-speed wifi
- 4 Meeting rooms with space for up to 16 people.
- Breakout areas, kitchenettes and club lounges.
- Cafe serving hot and cold food
- Shower and bike stores.
- An outdoor terrace for post-work socialising.
Being so centrally located, Clockwise Southampton is not just perfect for coworking but also fantastic for drinking, dining and doing options whether before, during or after your working day is done.
Muse Cafe – The really rather intelligent Aristotle believed that walking facilitates creativity. Why not saunter out to grab some great coffee as you get some thinking done? This is absolutely something that Muse cafe is more than able to help you with.
Diego’s Rotisserie – You could go to a rather more nationally recognised Portuguese chicken place within walking distance of our serviced offices but why would you? Diego’s Peri Peri chicken combines quality ingredients with creative flair and the right amount of spice. Support local. Go Diego’s.
Piecaramba – Not only have they absolutely nailed the brand name but the pies are really rather beautiful to behold. Serving up vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options alongside the more classic meat offerings, we can highly recommend the Piefull Tower to power your post-lunch work sprint.
The Black Phoenix Pub – You can expect incredible food menus (with dietary options), craft beers and incredible creative cocktails from Southampton’s ultimate independent and alternative pub – perfect to take the edge off after a day of deep work.
Sonar Cinema– Southampton’s best-kept secret is just a seven-minute walk from Mountbatten House. The cinema at Solent University has cheap tickets, a great selection of films and you don’t even have to be a student to enjoy the screenings.
