Whether you are looking for a great team building activity after a successful month on a big project, or you’re new to a business centre and are looking to increase networking opportunities with a good social, we have scoured the city to find you the best group events from physical challenges to games of skill.
The Crystal Maze, Angel
Described as the ‘ultimate team challenge’, this unique experience is not only amazingly fun but will fill your team with nostalgia. Replicating the original TV series, the maze will have you dashing and diving around the industrial, futuristic, medieval and Aztec zones in an unforgettable test of both your mental and physical ability.
If your team is of 32 people or more the option to hire the entire experience becomes available. Private hire allows those behind the scenes to tailor the experience to your exact needs while customising the space. Voted the ‘Best Attraction for Team Building’ this is a brilliant way to bring people together.
Go Ape, Battersea Park
Are your team a bunch of adrenaline junkies that love a thrill? Well Go Ape in the beautiful Battersea Park is the ultimate challenge and not to mention a fantastic group day out. Forget about the concrete jungle that sits just a short distance away and thrust your team up amongst the tree tops.
The course consists of a 50 metre long zip wire, a 13.6 metre platform, a zigzag bridge, where careful footing is a necessity, a huggable Tibetan Bridge and sky-high stepping stones. The team will be busy conquering the 231 metre high rope expedition for a full 2-3 hours, if they can hold their nerve long enough.
Up at The O2, Greenwich
Combining fun, adrenaline and some stunning views, you and your team will feel on top of the world after climbing the enormous O2 dome. Get kitted out in a climb suit, boots and harness, take a quick selfie for the Gram and get climbing! Once at the top you will discover mesmerising 360 degree views across Historic Greenwich, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Canary Wharf with climbs possible day or night.
Again, if your team are of 30 or more you can book a personal guide and a time slot all of your own. If you are celebrating a work achievement why not surprise everyone at the top with a little champers courtesy of Lanson.
All Star Lanes, multiple locations
For something a little more low-key but still a great evening out, visit All Star Lanes. With unique, mouth-watering cocktails and shakes as well as a Snapchat worthy menu of great American classics, there’s no need to compromise on fun or food, All Star has it covered. Bowling lanes and pin-spotters have been flown over from the USA for an authentic retro look while interiors skilfully mix the classic 1950s diner image with a contemporary touch and an electric energy.
For a more special occasion, hire out a private room and create your own legendary company party with a private cocktail bar, karaoke and the help of the centre’s expert events team.
With something for everyone and every occasion, London is a never ending hub of entertainment. Forget the same old grill at the end of the road and wow your team with a bonding experience they’ll never forget.
