As our work lives become gradually more flexible, more of us need to be productive outside an office. Whether you’re a freelancer or remote worker, chances are you’re going to want a change of scenery every once in a while. Cafes and co-working spaces are the perfect place to caffeinate, refuel and focus with other like-minded individuals.

This is the first in our remote working series, designed to help working nomads find the best places to hunker down and get stuff done in the city. Whether you need a relatively quiet place to dial in to a video conference or somewhere with a decent amount of plugs to save your dying laptop, here are eight great places in and around Shoreditch, London, for you to try.
