Office space in Anerley
Formerly containing the site of The Crystal Palace – that monumental celebration of Victorian industrial achievement – Anerley has maintained a low profile over the years, which could make it something of an undiscovered gem in your hunt for your ideal office to rent. If you need any convincing, let our guide to the area make things crystal clear.
Why rent offices in Anerley?
Located within London’s leafy borough of Bromley, Anerley lies a little to the west of Beckenham and its giant Tesco superstore, and north of bustling Croydon. Crystal Palace Park is at its northern end, with its museum celebrating the history of the iconic structure before its destruction by fire in 1936.
Anerley itself is a mix of mainly residential development, from Victorian houses and conversions to 1960s town houses and council property. Houses here – and everywhere else – have benefited from the marketing efforts of local resident Thomas Crapper, who famously promoted the flush toilet in Victorian times.
Property prices have tended to lag a little behind the rest of south London’s explosive boom, so costs here tend to be a bit lower than higher profile suburbs. But the arrival of the London Overground in 2010 has helped put Anerley more firmly on the property radar.
Anerley station is part of the southward extension of the East London Line, with services to Dalston Junction, West Croydon and Caterham. You can get to West Croydon in just nine minutes, while Canada Water in London’s Docklands is only 23 minutes away. It’s just over half an hour to Shoreditch High Street, and three-quarters of an hour to Highbury & Islington. Southern Railways also runs overland services to London Bridge station with a journey time of 21 minutes. By road, you’re looking at a 12-minute drive to the South Circular Road, and 15 minutes to the A23, giving a total journey time of about 40 minutes to the start of the M23 and J7 of the M25.
Anerley falls under the South East London Chamber of Commerce, which offers networking events and workshops, and a business directory. The local Crystal Palace Community Development Trust runs a local business centre with office space and halls for hire in Anerley’s elegant former Victorian Town Hall.
