Our campus of buildings offers a world of opportunity for you and your project, start-up or organisation. 

With three spaces in Plymouth – Market Hall, Ocean Studios and Devonport Guildhall – and Liskeard Library currently under development in Cornwall, we can cater to your every need.  

So, whether it’s a shared co-working space or hot desk to allow you to work away from the kitchen table, a meeting space to bring groups that you support, or a creative and innovative event space to hold team days or corporate events, we have you covered.    

Explore our facilities and book direct or get in touch for a tour. We’d love to talk about how our work spaces can support you to achieve more.

Anyone can cowork in our spaces. You simply have to sign up to be a Real Ideas member, which is free, and then you can log in through our member’s portal and book your coworking – or just come to our cafe and pay on the day!

What does it cost?

Membership is free.

A half day of coworking is £12.50 and you can purchase it on the day from our cafe along with your coffee.

There are also 2 packages you can add onto your membership for an even better price:

  • Connect Package (£20) – 4 full days/8 half days of co-work, plus 1 hour of business support per month
  • All In (£200) – unlimited co-work, 4 full days/8 half days of meeting room use per month

Who we worked with 

Working at the ever-impressive Market Hall in Plymouth allows colleagues to choose how they want to work post-Covid, and provides a space for people to safely come together to meet with colleagues and partner organisations. It also allows us to make new connections with other members – creative people, entrepreneurs and community groups. We’ve already opened up new links, partnerships and potential new projects.
