If you are based down south and want to organise an incredible team building adventure for all your staff and colleagues, fret no more. 

Here are 7 fun team building ideas for London...

1. Sack Race/ Egg and Spoon Race/ Tug of War

Remember those classic school sports day events like tug of war and sack race? 

Relive the school days and have a laugh with your colleagues by hiring these activities and heading to one of the city’s green areas including Greenwich Park, Green Park, or Kensington Gardens. 

These are huge green spaces that are free to use and perfect for some fresh outdoor fun!


2. Roll A Ball Donkey Derby

London is renowned for its races from Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium to the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race. Channel your competitiveness and whittle out the boys from the men with our Roll A Ball Donkey Derby. 

It’s great fun for all those involved and it can take place indoors so it’s not weather permitting which is ideal, especially given the great British climate!


3. Archery Hire

Pick up your bow and arrow, take aim and bullseye! Archery is a fantastic team building exercise- it’s a low impact and a safe sport for all abilities.

Archery was a big sport in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Held over an eight-day period, four events took place in front of around 6,500 spectators. It is a truly historic sport, a contest of mind and body control, as well as precision. 

It has roots dating back to its use as a weapon of hunting and war in ancient times- so what are you waiting for, hunt for food and wage war with your boss with our help!

4. It’s A Knockout

It’s a Knockout was a classic British comedy game show first broadcast in 1966.

It was adapted from a French show and the series was broadcast for over 15 years on BBC1. It has since returned to our screens on numerous occasions but the games have always remained the same- school sports day for adults. 

Recreate the fun for your business with a frantic, energetic, highly motivating game that is thoroughly entertaining.

5. Build a Tower

The Tower of London is a famous historical castle, otherwise known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress.

Based on the River Thames in central London, it’s a popular tourist attraction alongside the Tower Bridge and Big Ben.

If you’re fed up of looking out of your office window and seeing the iconic structures day in day out, why not recreate them in the comfort of your own office space with our Build a Tower Team Building. 

6. BATAK Pro

BATAK Pro is a piece of equipment specifically designed to improve reaction, enhance hand-eye coordination as well as stamina. 

Forget running around London Hyde Park to burn off some energy, sixty seconds against the clock with our BATAK Pro is just what you need to get the adrenaline pumping whilst your colleagues flock round to watch the show. 

7. Cash Grabber Cylinder

The UK is home to some of the biggest and best game shows including Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, You’re Back in the Room, Win Your Wish List and The Cube. 

Why not create your very own game show with a Cash Grabber Cylinder! They’re fantastic fun and perfect for competitions or promotions. For the extra ‘wow’ factor, hire alongside our Game Show Hire just like the cast of Neighbours did...
