The best team building venues in London

How did they build the A-Team? Contemporary culture would lay the cause at the injustices of the American prison industrial complex. But we know better.

A crack team needs a great day out. They need bingo halls and axes flying through the air, they need simulations and puzzles and more themed bars than Disneyland. They need, obviously, a team away day.

London is blessed with a creative energy that throws out team activity venues at a bewildering place. It is said, in certain circles, that any building left uninhabited for long enough will do one of two things: morph into a pret or turn into an escape room.

Well, here are the best of the best of London's infinite team-building venues and activity bars.

There's enough equipment here going on so that, by the time you jump into the virtual world, you begin to resemble a paramilitary toaster. The is an upside to of all of this plastic, velcro and sensor equipment: it's a full-body experience, meaning the tech will track every flailing limb and botched rifle blast.

The game modes lean on familiar territory: expect pirates, aliens and hordes of undead. And, after all that thirsty slaughter, you can even order a cocktail from what we understand to be London's first robotic mixologist.

How to hire a team building venue in London

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect team building venue. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in London.

Frequently asked questions

For team-building venues in London, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

OTHERWORLD VR – Explore other worlds with your team members.

Hijingo – For bingo with a twist, you're at the right place.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a team building venue. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a London team-building venue. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best team-building venues in London and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
