In addition to the above, make sure it's at least a 1440p screen - you're starting at a screen all day, at least the text can be sharp!

Btw, you have enough space for dual screen desk in London. Congrats.

Is it productivity only or some gaming involved as well? If both, I would suggest ultra wide, but go for 38'. You can still share only a part of the screen on zoom if that's a concern. If just productivity, dual screens are better, but again I would bump them up from 24'.

Depends on how your desk is set up. If it’s a wide desk, ie the monitors will be quite far away, go bigger. If they will be quite close then 2x24 is fine. Go frameless / small bezel if you can. Don’t entertain ultra wide if it’s for work. You’ll find capability to angle screens independently important.

Do you have a budget and can choose monitor yourself or is it a set provided through your company? I‘d always go for dual monitor. But would recommend 27“. Currently have a 24“ and 27“ but will most likely upgrade the 24“ to another 27“.

Dual, I like to be able to have one portrait and one landscape.
