London is a truly special place, for both organisations and people alike. What might first appear as as big scary city, soon becomes a hub of humanity, history and culture. Whether you’re walking along the River Thames on a cold December day with a festive designed paper cup cuddled in your cold hands, or sitting inside a vibrant and loud cocktail bar nestled in the heart of Brixton with a freshly served, cold glass of cosmo with your friends – you’ll feel something special in the air. Everytime I get asked ‘why is London the best place to be?’, I simply remind them of that feeling. It’s hard to explain or to describe because ultimately, it is untangible. You can’t touch it, you can’t see it and you can’t even smell it but it’s there, lingering in the background. Londoners will know exactly what I mean but if you aren’t familiar, you soon will be.
Organisations have made it their home for hundreds of years and rightly so, it’s a fabulous place to be with new experiences to be had around every corner. The one downside and I really mean, just the one downside, is the cost associated with the city (££££). The cost of renting and buying far exceeds the likes of Liverpool and Lincoln, the cost of coffee from a much-loved indie seller might set you back a few more quid than in Sheffield and Harrogate and just trying to park as centrally as you can may end up costing the same as your daily wage! We understand this is why not every company flocks to have a capital city office and instead remains happily placed by the coast, in the countryside or just in one of the cheaper cities. However, that doesn’t mean you have to stay outside the capital forever…
Here are our Top 5 Reasons why London is the best place to visit for a team experience:
1. The BEST venues
Team Building Experiences have found unique venues for all of your celebrations. We have many places such as Ballie Ballerson and Navrtar to offer. I mean… a ballpit cocktail bar? Sounds pretty awesome to us! London’s event venues are as varied as they are numerous, so finding the dream space for your delegates is no problem at all. There are an estimated 2000+ venues in the city which cater to events, meaning you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice.
2. Food from all cultures
Great food holds a special place in many of hearts; just remembering the aromas and tastes of certain foods are enough to make our mouths water. London is a melting pot of cultures, nationalities, and languages – which is why it’s so attractive to travelers worldwide! Experience the unique settings of Borough Market, Covent Garden and Chinatown and indulge in some seriously good food whilst at it! Our team can help you find the very best restaurants and eateries to delight your team and a few bars for afterwards too…
3. London is where everyone is!
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Most corporate businesses are based near or within London, and not everyone wants to leave the comfort of their office. Yes, we have thought about you guys! Did you know? There’s approx. 1 million businesses here? And 9.3 million people just living there? That’s even more people than living in New York! That’s why we offer mobile experiences. Ever thought about doing some cool cocktail making with the team? We’ve got your back! Or maybe thinking about solving a crime and becoming the next Scooby Doo gang? We’ve got you covered. Not only are there no travelling fees, but these experiences are just as good if they were in their own venue!
4. Great Transport Links
London’s transport system is rightly recognised as one of the best in the world, with a wide variety of options designed to help busy Londoners and visitors alike get around with ease. There are five airports in the city, and a huge number of train stations and Tube stations, as well as buses, taxis and much more. If you need to get somewhere in a hurry, then London is the ideal place to be – and accommodates even the most time-conscious of business travellers. This means, anywhere you go, there will almost certainly be a transport method to get there nice and easily, and sometimes even stop outside the venue!
5. Unique Experiences
London is home to a whole host of experiences, some of which are capital city exclusive! With more people to entertain than any other UK city, they’ve had to ramp up the number of experiences and the quality of them too. From tourist attractions to hidden gems, here’s a quick list of what the city has to offer:
- Ballie Ballerson
- Madame Tussauds
- London Eye
- London Dungeons
- Comedy Clubs
- Cocktail Masterclasses
- Roller Skating
- Rooftop Bars
- Immersive Theatre
And many, many more! Why not pair up your Team Building event with one of the most famous places in the United Kingdom? Whatever you choose, virtual, gifting, or live, we will be sure to offer you this at Team Building Experiences in London.
