Hi everyone! When attending graduate school in London, it’s very easy to get distracted. Finding a nice place to get work done can be a little tricky, but I have found some places in West London that will help you stay focused and fed.
Joe & The Juice
299 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 9QH (Multiple locations across London)
This place is my favorite place to go and study because of the amount of seating and super fast wifi. From the outside it doesn’t look like there is much space, but downstairs there are more tables and comfy chairs. The menu consists of juices, shakes, and coffee to keep you going. They also have sandwiches if you want something to fill you up.

CPRESS is a new place I found and it’s so nice to do work there. It has tons of healthy options to keep your brain focused and nice seating. Definitely one of the less crowded places to go and get some work done.
A Wanted Man
330 King’s Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 5UR
This coffee shop is nice and quaint. It does get busy on the weekends and early morning, but throughout the day it’s nice place to pull up a chair and work away. You also have the rest of King’s Road to explore once you’ve gotten a couple hours of work in.
30 Uxbridge Street, London W8 7TA
Alright, technically this place is in Notting Hill but it is just a short tube ride away from Kensington. Egg Break serves all things eggy. It has wifi and cozy seating to get some work done and your tummy full. On the weekends it is very crowded, however on the weekdays it’s a nice place to do some readings and have a nice brunch. The cornflake French toast is amazing!
Cineworld Cinemas, 142 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9QR
Of course, the old faithful Starbucks. I prefer going to this Starbucks over the one near Chelsea & Westminster hospital because it’s almost never crowded. It’s located next to a Cinema, so you could always pop in for a film. They have cozy seating and nice nooks in the windows where you can look out onto Fulham Road.
And those are some of my go-to places to study in Kensington and Chelsea. I find it easier to get my work done outside of central London as it’s much quieter and not as crowded. Nice thing about London is that there are so many places to do work, you’ll always have an option. I’ll let you guys know when I stumble upon more places!
