Best venues for team building in the UK

If you're looking for a fun venue to take your team away for some bonding time, you've come to the right place.

Updated on 07 February 2023

Team building - two words that can send shivers down the spine, for those of us who have been on badly organised team away days. The difference between good and bad team building days is astronomical, so it pays to have a plan and a good plan starts with a good team building venue.

Venues for team building are so important - the right venue can make or break a team bonding session, so if you’re planning a team building weekend away or a simple day out to help colleagues get to know each other, you’ve come to the right place.

Our list rounds up a variety of different styles and activities. Smaller teams might be more suited to more activity-based days out - there are outside team building activities all around the country where you can try your hand at clay pigeon shooting, archery, polo and more, all under the watchful supervision of experienced teachers! There are also plenty of large estates, racecourse and sports grounds that offer a range of fun team building activities during the year, like zorbing and sports day-style games.

If you’re understandably wary of the British weather, there are lots of indoor team building activities you can book across the UK as well. These range from large blank canvas spaces where you can organise your own games and activities, to adult fun fairs, crazy golf courses and virtual reality games. Lots of restaurants and bars also offer cocktail mixing classes and the like too, or, why not just keep things classy and take your team out for a night of karaoke and drinks, and belt out all your favourite anthems.

We’ve pulled together a list of our favourite team building venues across the UK, spanning all sorts of options. Click on the ones you like and you can contact the venues, find lots more information and book straight from the page.
