Top 10 team building venues in London – vote for your favourite




Updated: Saturday 7th March 2020

Our capital is filled with some of the best venues in the world – so many in fact, it can be tough to choose. To help you find the perfect canvas for your events, starting from the 1st January 2020, we launched THE SEARCH for London’s best venues to share with those of you organising events in and around this city. Last month, we were looking for the top blank canvas spaces in London and in January London’s most luxurious venues.

Interested in team building in London? This month, we are on the search for the best team building venues across the capital.  These are versatile venues with fun team challenges and activities designed to bring people together.

How to find London’s Best Venues?

Every month, a panel of over 1000 Londoners (and also you – visitors to our website) will vote for their favourite London venues. Firstly, our London venue specialists will handpick 10 venues that they think are the best of a particular category (e.g. luxurious, blank canvas, Christmas party venues). They will explain why they’ve put each venue forward. Then, it’s down a panel of over 1000 Londoners and you (readers of this website) to be the judges. Unlike other top 10s, our experts have conducted site visits at all of these venues and no brand can pay to feature on this list.

Revealing the top 10 team building venues in London:

Our venue specialists have selected the following 10 team building venues:
