1. A maximalist approach to the team building venue: Boom Battle Bar
Offering a bewildering array of games, Boom Battle Bar is a London activity venue for those wanting to do everything. 'Everything', in this instance, refers to: ace throwing, shuffle-boarding, augmented reality darts, American pool, beer pong, prosecco pong, crazy golf and karaoke. Okay, take a breath.
Whilst Boom Battle Bar have multiple venues entertaining the masses across London, their flagship spot over at the O2 is worth highlighting. For private hire, you can squeeze a whopping 500 attendees into the space, meaning you and the whole company can get in on the action. Just be careful who you let throw an axe.
2. Experience bingo with a twist at this team-building venue: Hijingo
5, 32? Bingo!!
Thinking of having a fun and friendly round of bingo with your team? With an expert in-house team, entertaining live hosts and a venue that’s nothing to sniff at, Hijingo Bingo is a pretty good shout.
Take up the challenge with enough graphics and special effects to take things to a whole new level –and of course, drinks and snacks for those all important breaks.
Open seven days a week (with Mondays reserved for private hire), this Tokyo nights inspired bingo club certainly gives a new spin to the game of bingo.
It’s like bingo, but better.
3. Relive Squid Game with your team at London’s latest venue: Immersive GameBox
Establish a colony on Mars. Experience your very own Squid Game. Or simply enjoy a game of Angry Birds. All a stone’s throw away from Southwark tube station.
Pick your game of choice then get ushered into one of GameBox’s smart rooms (which has space for up to 6 team members). With motion tracking and touch screen tech, get ready to be in the centre of the action. Gear up then get playing! Bond with co-workers while you work your way through challenges.
All that’s left is to press start on a great team-building day.
4. A communal VR experience within walking distance of Covent Garden: Sandbox VR
Covent Garden, London
VR has taken London by pixelated storm. Seemingly every team activity venue has abandoned the tactile world for high-definition interactivity. Which, though, is really worth going to?
Sandbox distinguishes themselves by allowing up to 6 of you to shoot, run and commit general acts of violence against virtual assailants. 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.
5. Play to your strengths at this iconic team-building venue: The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience
Are you ready for something a little different? A world of adventure, magic and mystery awaits at The Crystal Maze LIVE.
Based on a popular 90s show, The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience puts you through a series of puzzles designed by the in-house experts to challenge you and spark your creativity. As a prize, winners get medallions. Score.
Don satin bomber jackets, run around, solve puzzles like there’s no tomorrow, and as it’s open Tuesday through to Sunday, this team building venue is ready whenever you are.
6. Swing big at this team-building venue: Swingers West End
You never forget your first swing. With two courses, a lounge and a bar, Swingers West End branch brings its own British seaside flair to crazy golf.
Offering private full-venue hire, Swingers has room for up to 500 guests (for a standing reception). The entire venue is divided into individual spaces, each with its own unique charms. Step into The Palm Lounge, The Sun Room or the Promenade to see for yourself.
Closed on Mondays, this miniature golf space brings together good food, good drinks and a great game of golf.
7. Relax and unwind at this team-building venue: Birch
Located less than half an hour away from Liverpool Street station, Birch is the jack of all trades (and venues).
Filling its role as the modern-day hotel, restaurant, members club, working space and creative hub, Birch is 55 acres of lush green fields. Ample space for fun and relaxation we think.
With tons of featured workshops, make it a creative team away weekend or something a little active with a team hiking or yoga session.
Recharge from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, get to know your co-workers a little better and then come back to the office feeling refreshed, full of energy and with a whole lot of amazing new ideas.
8. Witness the power of social darts with your team: Flight Club
If anyone knows the power of a good game of darts, it’s Flight Club.
Red leather sofas, warmly-lit rooms and a fun session of social darts await you at one of London’s most sought-after activity venues. Spread across four locations in London, Flight Club offer 90-minute slots for you and at least five other team members (or three on weekdays).
Get playing with a dedicated Gamesmaster on hand, to help you get the most out of your time. Winners walk away with a shiny Flight Club medal.

Open seven days a week, hop in for a game or two with your colleagues and opt for a round of mini golf (£13 per person during peak times and £15 for two during off-peak hours). Winner gets a round on us.
10. Visit this venue for a game of ping pong with your team: Bounce
Did you know that the first game of ping pong was created and patented in Farringdon? That’s right, John Jaques III had the bright idea, and Bounce have fittingly found a home at the same spot.
Masterfully mixing ping pong with food and drink, this team-building venue has 17 ping pong tables in a completely open layout.
For something a little more exclusive, Bounce also has the option of a private space with its own private cocktail bar, three ping pong tables, and karaoke booth. Ping pong has never sounded so fun.

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.
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.
