I am often asked about studios to let: I will try and compile a list over time on this page of studio complexes that are worth asking if they have any studios available:
(227 studios, so usually a few available)

often have a range of studios available and registration is free.
How can I see one of the studios available?
You need to register with us first, (see the 'apply for a studio' section ) then we can arrange for you to see the currently available and soon to be available spaces.
Once you have registered we will contact you with a list of what is available. After that you need to get in touch with us to make a viewing appointment. "
For over fourty years 401½ has provided studios for fine and applied artists and designers. The project, started in 1971 by Michael Haynes is housed in a Victorian warehouse situated on one edge of Larkhall Park in Clapham. Wandsworth Road is part of an ancient road from the Thames leading to Kingston and the South West........
The 401½ studios provide an appropriate working environment for fine and applied artists. The impressive list of current and past members clearly testifies this.
The position of the studios provides easy access to central London with bus and underground services as well as the British Rail trains.
Open Days are held at least once a year where members can exhibit work.

ACAVA provides studios in a wide variety of buildings, many converted from industrial factory premises, others from offices and shops, a school, a vicarage, a laundry and potting sheds. It has also built some of the few purpose designed studios developed in recent years. You have to register with them and submit a statement of practice so it's a bit more formal.

Persistence Works is our flagship purpose built studio complex in the heart of the Cultural Industries Quarter in Sheffield city centre. There are 53 studios offering workspace to around 80 artists and makers. The studios are suitable for light industrial processes but the floors are zoned to offer quiet, contemplative spaces as well. Loading bay, office, meeting room and gallery run by MADE North.
Manor Oaks Studios is a small but beautifully formed collection of new build studios around a courtyard with green roofs and walls. Just 2 miles from the city centre the site has a rural feel with a Tudor Lodge, Farm Shop, cafe and even a shire horse on this historic site managed by Green Estate. There are four studios with workspace for 10+ artists and makers. The studios are suitable for light industrial processes. Loading area, free car park
Knutton Road Studios form part of the new build, award wining SOAR Works, ideally situated for artists living in the North/North West of the city with good access to the M1. Suitable for quieter light industrial practices. Free car park, cafe, meeting rooms, media suite.)
There are three staircases, one being very wide, and a passenger lift. There is a loading bay to the side and in the basement. The building is on the District Heating System so will be economically warm. There are communal sinks on each floor. There are project spaces on the ground floor as well as an office which is open Monday to Friday 9.30am-12.30pm for deliveries and enquiries. There are free WiFi hotspots on each each floor.
The building is on Exchange Street in historic Castlegate facing on to Victoria Quays, a five minute walk to the station, close to most city centre bus routes and with limited contract parking in the basement for those who find public transport difficult. The Castlegare area will shortly undergo a complete transformation with the closure of the markets and the revealing of the remains of Sheffield Castle.
Rent is £7 per sq ft p.a. inc VAT and rates (eg £117 per month for a 200 sq ft solo studio or around£85 per month for a space in a shared studio). Heat, light and power is charged on top - this currently works out about £5 per month on average in our other, similar studios.

Crescent Arts is a contemporary visual arts organisation based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. We are inviting printmakers and ceramicists to apply for subsidised studio space supported through professional development, exhibition opportunities and access to production and workshop facilities.
We are keen to encourage artists whose work is innovative, challenging and critically engaged, especially those at a formative stage who would benefit most from the facilities and support that we can provide. We expect artists to participate in professional development activities, and contribute to our exhibitions programme for which they receive modest financial support. Studio artists also contribute to workshops and educational programmes, for which they are paid appropriate fees. We house ceramics and printmaking facilities (intaglio, relief, screen printing) and regularly organise workshops with public access.
Studios are subsidised and licenced to artists, currently at an all-in charge of £45pcm, for a period of up to 3 years.
Deadline for applications: 5pm Monday 1st December 2014 Short-listed applicants will be invited for interview in mid December. It may be worth future enquiries if you are subsequently looking in the Scarborough area.
For an information pack please visit Crescent Arts Studios on our website

Lease Length this unit is offered either: by way of a Tenancy-at-Will; or by way of a Six-Year Fixed Term Lease. A Tenancy-at-Will is a tenancy that only continues as long as both landlord and tenant will it to continue.

A Six-Year Fixed Term Lease is a lease for that period of time. The landlord may not terminate it before its end (unless the tenant is in breach of its conditions) and if the tenant wishes to leave it needs to find an alternative, acceptable tenant to take over the lease.
Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 the security of tenure provisions of this Act will be excluded, so that at the end of the tenancy or lease the tenant has no right to a new tenancy or lease.
