As well as our amazing location, the sense of community & our intriguing building, there are lots of reasons why you should join us.

Flexible & affordable.

We keep our prices flexible & affordable, so that everyone gets the opportunity to use the space.
We have 2 membership options to suit every working style.


There are endless networking opportunities with other Hive & Mill users – both formal and informal.
In the past users have collaborated on podcasts, film projects, workshops & more.


We provide complimentarty tea & coffee, with options of herbal & non dairy alternatives.
Access is available to our other public spaces too, if you need a quick meeting & no-one else is using it.

Another space.

We want to ensure that we offer another option for people who want to work on their own thing in an office atmosphere & those who need to get away from their normal routine to work on a one-off project.

the shared space makes for a social environment, respecting others' privacy

The Hive is a great place to work. All the essentials - fast wifi, spacious desks, tea / coffee facilities are there, plus I've met lots of really interesting people as the shared space makes for a social environment, respecting others' privacy when needed. It's good to know that the building is eco-friendly, and taking a stroll along the river makes for a perfect lunch break."
