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. Join over 500 brands who have appeared in the station and book this retail pop-up store today. It’s white-boxed, got concrete flooring and comes with a lightbox for eye-catching branding. The space comes with small storage space and a toilet.

You’ll place your idea in front of trendsetters, early adopters, and forward thinkers. Old Street Station sees thousands of commuters a day, a lot of whom are working in what Wired magazine calls the “fastest-growing tech cluster” in Europe. 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.

Home Truths

There is construction work happening in some parts of the station throughout 2019, but the underground and the retail units 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.
