Our Guide to the Best Team Building Activities in South Bank
Brainstorming ideas can be fun, but your usual meeting room won’t always get those creative cogs working. Take a trip to London’s cultural playground, hire a unique space and get to know your colleagues with some inspiring activities.
Go behind the scenes
Book your event at The Deck at the National Theatre and opt in to a Backstage Tour for the chance to experience first-hand all the work that goes into creating one the 20 new productions that are performed at the National Theatre annually.
Team building on the River Thames
Brainstorm in a boardroom on the River Thames on a KPMG Thames Clipper. With full AV equipment, champagne and canapes, you’ll be inspired by the spectacular views of London as you travel in style and grace from any major London pier. If you fancy something a bit more adventurous, try a London Duck Tour with code breakers and treasure hunts themed especially for your team.
Ever fancied being in a band?
Explore the beautiful music of Indonesia and group music-making on a wonderful set of Javanese percussion instruments, the Southbank Centre gamelan. No previous musical experience is necessary, just a willingness to take off your shoes and have fun!
Network 135 metres high
Choose from champagne, canapes, brunch and afternoon tea in private capsules on the EDF Energy London Eye for up to 25 guests. If you have a sweet tooth, book chocolate tasting with Hotel Chocolat or wine tasting with Vinopolis.
Take your networking al fresco
With South Bank’s spectacular views over London, book an outdoor space for team building drinks at OXO Tower Bar & Brasserie’s terrace, or if you book a conference at Coin Street Conference Centre, be sure to ask for access to their private roof garden for rooftop views over Waterloo.
Practice your mixology and gastronomy
Learn the history behind cocktail culture and create your own mix at OXO Tower Bar, or unravel the mystery of sushi with a Sushi Masterclass at Chino Latino. If you fancy testing the knowledge of your team mates, play Chino Latino’s tasting game ‘Name that Cocktail & Sushi’ or see whether resident wine experts can fool you in a wine tasting version of ‘Call my Bluff’.
