Unlikely to find managed offices with multiple 10GE connections. In my 
experience, if they have 1GE shared between all tenants, then you're doing
well :)

That said, if you talk to the people with lots of fibre around London (Geo,
Zayo/Abovenet, Level3, etc), then you will probably find that you can pick
up a metro dark fibre hop back to one of the major datacentres for not too 
much money. If you shop around carefully, you may find that they have buildings
that they're either in, or immediately outside of, and digs won't be a major
issue.
