A Little About This Space

From a normal station to London's most innovative retail destination, Old Street Station is where the very best of above the ground is collected and curated underground. Since launch in 2014, over 500 brands have appeared in the station and you can join them today with this pop-up shop for rent. It comes with electricity, access to water, space for storage, and a lightbox with a panel available for branding.

Old Street Station sees thousands of commuters a day, a lot of whom are forward thinkers, early adopters and working in some of the city’s most exciting start-ups. Watch as they break their daily commute with a bit of unexpected retail therapy. 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.


Just down the corridor from Nincomsoup, a cheap and cheerful spot for freshly made soups, and close to Camden Lock Books, an independent bookshop specialising in photography, art and history. We’ve got other pop-up shops within the station, view them here.


Dollar Shave Club turned the space into a fully immersive, wooden-panelled barber shop and comedy club in January 2018.

Jamie Oliver’s Drinks Tube launched a one week pop-up studio here in July 2014.

Home Truths

The tunnel directly next to this unit will be closed as part of the station refurbishment works from May 2019. The station will remain operational throughout the planned works.

The station is a busy environment, 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.

Old Street is a living, breathing underground station, with all its perks (amazing footfall, access to all the creative minds of silicon roundabout), and pitfalls (dust from the tracks and pests).
