Where to find free wi-fi in London

  • Coffee Republic


    The majority of Coffee Republic bars offer access to a free wi-fi zone for instant access to the internet from laptops or PDAs. You get the first ten minutes free but further usage requires purchase.

  • Leon


    The wünderkind of healthy fast food has nine branches across central London and the City. All are wi-fi enabled. The Spitalfields branch gets very busy at lunchtime, but is a good place to go when quiet. Read more

  • Corney & Barrow


    The wine merchants-turned-bar has 13 branches across the City and Canary Wharf. Unsurprisingly, clientele consists almost entirely of City workers, many of whom go there for breakfast (from 7.30am) and catch up their personal emails before the working day begins.

  • Pret a Manger


    Pret’s tables are perfectly adequate to fit a laptop, coffee and sarnie. Most of the 150 London stores are wi-fi enabled; ring the branch you intend to visit before making a special trip.

  • Wetherspoons


    Wetherspoons has enabled free wi-fi in all of its 60-odd branches in London.

  • Le Pain Quotidien


    Le Pain Quotidien was established in Brussels in the 1990s and has become a hit with well-heeled Londoners since its arrival in the UK. Thirteen of its 15 branches have free wi-fi (Marylebone and Hampstead don't).

  • Starbucks


    The 'Starbucks worker' has become a feature of everyday London life – more than 400 Starbucks coffee shops in the UK now have wi-fi access, with a good portion of these situated in London. If you want to get online for free, you'll need a Starbucks Card to access the Starbucks BT Openzone.
