Spike Island Workspace

Spike Island Workspace

If you’re looking for a fresh space to work, close to Bristol harbour, we encourage you to try Spike Island Workspace – with world-renowned art exhibitions, a delicious cafe, and within a dynamic community of artists and creative businesses.

Working from home isn’t right for everyone. Our creative, safe and secure workspace is designed to help you grow your business, expand your connections, and take inspiration from Spike Island’s diverse artistic community. We recognise that people now feel differently about how they want to run their business, and as we navigate our way out of the pandemic, we’d like to support you on this journey. Membership of Spike Island Workspace is both flexible and low-cost in order to build a sustainable and inclusive community in which small businesses can thrive.

Since 2007, we have played a key role in Bristol’s creative industries, providing workspace for new, emerging and micro businesses to establish themselves and develop. We are thrilled to re-launch Spike Island Workspace this August 2021 with a refurbished space, new kitchen facilities and a brand refresh – building on this inspiring history and becoming the best home for Bristol’s small creative businesses.
