The Coworking Spaces of South Wales (List & Map)

* Pandemic-related note: This list/map hasn’t been updated since before the pandemic started. It’s due a massive update (coming soon) but please bear in mind the landscape might be a little different now… *

This list and map of all the coworking spaces in South Wales originally started out as a side-project for Computer Recruiter (my parents’ IT recruitment agency) back in January 2015. However, when the company shut shop in late 2018 due to my parents retiring, I decided to continue to maintain and update it myself. Below is (most of) the original text, carried across from to here, its new home.

First of all, here’s a map:

* Important note! * Please enquire and look into an individual coworking space before you plan your visit. Please understand that exact coworking space locations may not be 100% accurate (I’m pretty confident that they are – or that they’re close, for those that I’ve not visited personally), and that this map may not be 100% up-to-date (e.g. if a space closes and we do not manage to update it straight away). Thanks!

Here’s more info about each of the spaces…

Have I missed any? If so, please let me know by tweeting me or via my contact form and I will add them in!

Rabble Studio in Cardiff Bay

A dedicated coworking space for the creatives of Cardiff: designers, developers, photographers, film makers, writers, illustrators, creative producers, art directors, architects, makers – anyone who works in a creative field. There is also the Lounge (a smaller room with sofas, etc.) which can be hired as a workshop space. There’s only 16+ work stations, so availability is limited. Knowing Dan (the founder) personally, it’s a very exciting working environment if you tick the creative box.

Open late? YES! (Members have 24 hour access)
Open Saturdays? YES! (24/7 access for members and for events)

Based a few minutes walk from Cardiff Central train station, The Sustainable Studio is a coworking space aimed at more of the ‘maker’ and creative crowd. Members include a photographer, a ceramic artist, a fashion label and a manufacturer of male grooming products, to give you an idea of who/what is there.

TechHub Swansea

TechHub SwanseaLocation: Swansea city centre
Offering: As well as dedicated full-time membership packages they now offer day memberships
Open late? YES! (Members have 24 hour access)
Open Saturdays? YES!
Meeting rooms? YES!

While I’ve not tried TechHub Swansea personally, I’ve heard good things. They moved spaces a while back and their new building has a dedicated event space and a tech café. Whereas they previously only offered full-time membership, they now offer day memberships.

Open late? YES! Anyone in the building at 7:30pm can work as late as they like, however there is no re-entry into the building after 7:30pm
Open Saturdays? YES! Members have access, but the building is unmanned
Meeting rooms? YES!

TecMarina in Penarth

TecMarina is a space that opened in April 2016 in Penarth Marina. It has a big focus on office space, although there is a dedicated coworking space area and membership fees for coworkers especially. It’s an amazing space, boasting various meeting rooms and breakout spaces, a gaming room, and even an on-site gym with shower facilities. Refreshments-wise they offer unlimited bean-to-cup coffee, tea and hot chocolate, and it’s also in walking distance to a supermarket. It’ll be interesting to keep an eye on this space over the coming months and years…

Tramshed Tech

Location: Cardiff city centre
Offering: Offers different membership packages
Open late? No (but may change in the future)
Open Saturdays? No (but may change in the future)
Meeting rooms? YES!

Tramshed Tech in Cardiff

Cross the bridge west of Cardiff Central station and you’ll find Tramshed, a live music venue… and now, as part of the same building, there’s also a coworking space! Focusing on technology and creative industry startups especially, Tramshed Tech offers support, exclusive events and training to its members, through different packages (lounge, part-time, full-time or designated), depending on your needs.

Open Saturdays? No (but it can be hired for private events)

Village Hotel Cardiff BCLUB image
The Village Hotel in Cardiff has always been a great location for business meetings, what with its great location (just off the motorway), so it’s great to see that they now provide coworking services via its VWorks (formerly known as BCLUB) offering. It’s got the works: four private meeting spaces, fast WiFi, free parking, free refreshments and even free photocopying and printing.

Welsh ICE

Location: Caerphilly (north of Cardiff)
Offering: Mostly only caters to permanent residents (on a membership scheme)
Open late? YES! (There’s a ‘5-9 Club’ one evening per week, meaning that they’re open until 9pm once per week)
Open Saturdays? YES! (9am – 1pm)
Meeting rooms? YES!

Welsh ICE Caerphilly photo

Welsh ICE (Innovation Centre for Enterprise) is intended more as a permanent solution, similar to TechHub Swansea but unlike the drop-in-for-the-day setup you get with indycube. The great thing about ICE is that you can ‘scale up’ easily: for example, if you hire staff and outgrow the coworking space area, you can move into your own room. I’ve heard stories of people changing their address every 6-12 months because they keep needing to increase their office space, so at least you can do it comfortably without the change of address hassles. And while Caerphilly isn’t Cardiff per se, it’s literally only a few minutes’ drive out of the city.
