Old Street Station is the world’s first underground station dedicated to innovative retail and immersive brand experience. This tiny unit provides the perfect space to set up your kiosk or sampling bar, right in the centre of the station. Use the large cupboard area to the side, and the panel above the unit, to put your branding and logo in front of thousands of commuters a day. The space comes with electricity, a storage cupboard and a double-sided lightbox for branding.

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 another one of our our pop-up units, opposite the fast food cafe Nincomsoup, and near the independent bookshop, Camden Lock Books. We’ve got more pop-up shops a few doors down, view our other spaces available in Old Street station here.
