Blog / All About Wrkspace at Old Docks House

Wrkspace is a dynamic company that provides office space. A vibrant creative hub to tenants and freelancers who would like to rent desk space or virtual office space for ‘businesses that are really going places’.


Wrkspace has many different locations that companies, start-ups and freelancers can occupy.

One of their thriving locations is the Old Docks House in Preston, with only 20% of their office suites remaining.

The Old Docks House has a huge amount of history. It first opened in 1936 as the official headquarters for Preston Dock, but then closed in 1981.

Since then, the building has had a few tenants but has primarily been vacant. Wrkspace took on the property in 2018, and it has since been fully and lovingly renovated. Restored as the art deco masterpiece which still holds the charm it possessed in 1936. Small details of the original building have been kept, as this history adds to the human element of the building and brings the atmosphere alive.

Wrkspace offers first-class services.

Such as virtual office space, which gives entrepreneurs access to many services.
