Open System Settings and click on Appearance

Now, select the Enable Workspaces box

You will now have a Workspace Switcher on your Unity launcher

There is a good way to customize whatever you want including workspaces in ubuntu 14.04. Install Unity tweak tool by the following command:

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

Open the Unity tweak tool (know more about Unity tweak tool) and go to "Hot Corners".

Then add workspace to one of the corners (it is usual to put it on top left in GNOME 3). Enjoy it!


Once enabled, as described by Rohith Madhavan, you can switch manually by using Ctrl Alt plus left, right, up and down arrow keys or by selecting the Workspace Switcher on the Unity launcher
