The Financial Times is set to return to its original offices in at Bracken House from its current offices in Southwark Bridge in 2018 following Nikkei’s acquisition of the publisher last year.

Bracken House is a listed building near St Paul’s Cathedral and was designed specially to house the newspaper by English architect Sir Albert Richardson, with the pink Hollington sandstone from Staffordshire designed to match the colour of the FT’s pages.

The FT had its headquarters in the building between 1950s to 1980s, and was named after the FT’s founder Lord Brendan Bracken.

Its current offices on Southwark Bridge are being sold for redevelopment.

The offices were not included in the sale of the business to Nikkei from Pearson Group, instead Nikkei agreed a tenancy on commercial terms for the building while they seeked out a new office.
