Thanks for looking!

About the London Hackspace

The London Hackspace is a non-profit hackerspace in central London: a community-run workshop where people come to share tools and knowledge. We have a 1,300 square foot space in Shoreditch, just a stone's throw from Hoxton station. It's open to our members 24 hours a day, and we hold regular free events which are open to the public.

We were donated a large amount of hardware by a local Internet company. We hope to use the proceeds of this sale to improve our space.
