Commercial estate

We're helping businesses grow and supporting the regeneration of our estate through investment and enhancement

Network Rail Property is proud to provide more inspiring commercial space for small and medium-sized businesses than anyone else in Britain.



We have over 7,500 properties in our commercial estate; over half this number makes up our converted railway arch portfolio. We work hard to create unique and vibrant spaces that inspire the creativity of business owners.

We are driven by our commitment to support great ideas for our spaces and communities, wherever they come from. Our portfolio is full of variety, from bakeries and restaurants to microbreweries and climbing walls. In fact, of our 4,000 arches in London fewer than 20 are operated by national chains.

What we do doesn't stop with our tenants. We also want the communities surrounding our estate to thrive too by creating spaces to meet, eat, entertain or simply enjoy on a journey home.

All of the income we generate from our commercial estate is reinvested back into the railway. But equally, we know value lies in working with our tenants, enabling them to support their local economy and community by creating jobs and encouraging growth.

Our enhancements programme for London will bring many of our arches back to life and refurbish our estate. We're working with local authorities across the city to create spaces that offer something a little different for businesses, residents and visitors.
