A Little About This Space

Old Street Station is the world’s first underground station dedicated to innovative retail and immersive brand experience. This white-boxed retail space is opposite the turnstiles in the station, placing you in front of thousands of commuters every day. It comes with electricity, access to water, space for storage, and a lightbox with a panel available for branding. It can be rented by the week.

Watch as Londoners break their daily commute with a bit of unexpected retail therapy. Old Street attracts a mixed crowd, from City workers to those working in what Wired magazine calls the “fastest-growing tech cluster” in Europe. They’re looking for quick and easy purchases – a good chance to offer commuters a quick pick-me-up or something to help kick-start their day. Peak travel times are between 8-10am and 5-8pm during the working week.


You’re next door to Nincomsoup and a convenience store, and by the entrance to the roundabout event space. We’ve got other pop-up spaces further along, view them here.

Home Truths

The station is a busy environment and new to this style of retail, which means the more exciting and innovative you are the more likely you are to make an impact. Consult with our Concierge team to make the most of appearing underground.

As it's underground, there are some conditions that are outside of the Landlord's control. It's recommended that stock is covered overnight to protect from dust blowing up from the tracks.
