East End Speed Flatmating event tonight is cancelled

We’ve decided to cancel tonight’s East End Speed Flatmating following the trouble in London. Two of our staff came extremely close to being caught up in the violence before an event in Croydon last night and we’re not prepared to risk their safety or that of anyone else attending the event (either at the event itself or getting home afterwards).

Hopefully tonight will pass peacefully in London and across the UK and this will prove to have been over cautious on our part. We’ll make decisions on the rest of this week’s events as we come to them.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks for your understanding.

Have a safe night.

4 great ways to find a flatshare in London

London flatshare search options

There have always been several ways to search for a London flatshare on SpareRoom but they’ve been a little hidden away – until now.

With a bit of design tweaking we’ve been able to create a much easier way for you to access them. Here are the 4 ways you can search:

  1. Location – Simply type in the postcode or name of the area you’re looking in and away you go. Easy
  2. Commute time – Select your ideal commute time, let us know which station you work nearest to and tell us your budget. We’ll show you all the flatshares you can reach in that time
  3. Travel zone – Looking in a specific zone or, say, between zones 2 & 3? Cut out rooms in places you’re not interested in and zone in on the relevant ones
  4. Tube line – If you want to live on a specific tube line tell us which and we’ll show you all the best flatshares you could be living in

We hope these tools make it easier for you to find a London flatshare. Happy hunting!
