Where we work // London
The London Office
There really is no need to introduce the “world’s greatest city” (CNN said it before us). With over 170 museums, and the largest number of community languages in Europe (about 300) it is also the home to almost 9 million inhabitants. Just like any other big city, London may not be perfect - but its imperfections contribute to what makes it so charming. Should you be lucky enough to stroll around London someday, you might bump into some of our Barker Langham staff, as our headquarters are here. Bring your umbrella with you, but don’t lose it... like over 10,000 people do every year on the Tube.
Located in Clerkenwell, the nearest stations are Farringdon and Angel, the latter having the longest escalator in all of the Underground network. Our office is conveniently placed a stone’s throw away from many famous attractions. These include cultural landmarks such as the British Museum, the Charles Dicken Museum and Sadler’s Wells Theatre, but also the always-vibrant Exmouth Market which offers a wide range of international treats, ideal for a refreshing lunch break. The south-western part of Clerkenwell was known in the 1850s as London's "Little Italy”, and today the many amazing Italian restaurants and bars you still find there are a homage to their rich cultural heritage. Working off all that food and drink and staying healthy is important to all at Barker Langham, and the company's wellness program includes yoga sessions, bike rides and many other activities.
Our office itself is on Naoroji Street (don’t worry, no taxi drivers know where that is either). The street is named after the first Asian British MP, Dadabhai Naoroji. Situated in a modern, high-ceiling cosmopolitan style building where we also share a private garden, ideal for coffee breaks or summer barbecues and parties after a hard day at work with our team that is a great mix of 19 nationalities. We believe that this cultural diversity drives our creative approach to projects and helps us make those all important connections between seemingly disparate issues.
