At last, an engaging, affordable alternative to lonely garrets, pesky landlords and coffee shops with crappy Wi-Fi.

The 3rdRail Society is a group of independent, entrepreneurial types, like you, who want a professional, collaborative and encouraging atmosphere to work in – an attractive space where talented, motivated people can come and go. And get their stuff done.

We transformed half of the second floor of Stratford’s train station into a relaxed workspace that’s uncluttered, designy and a bit off centre. At prices even freelancers will like.

There are individual desks, workspace clusters and a communal worktable, Wi-Fi and a coffee machine. It’s a more social option for entrepreneurs who love being independent, but enjoy the energy of being around other people with complementary businesses and expertise.


This is a curated space, and the number of places is limited, so we’re looking specifically for people interested in the give-and-take of a collaborative environment. Stratford is loaded with talented people and we’re serious about creating a space where fresh ideas, sharpened skills and new opportunities emerge. The 3rdRail Society is going to be known as Creativity Central.

So if the novelty of working in your pyjamas has worn off, and no way are you going back to taupe walls and vinyl wallpaper, you might find your place at the 3rdRail Society. Take a look at our pricing and get in touch. Let’s have a conversation and you can come take a look at the space. In the meantime, you can see the floor plan here.

This could be great for your business. Because when productive, gifted people get around each other, new possibilities just … happen.
