Searching for a unique team building day or corporate event in London? Finding the right location for your team activity can be just as important (and stressful) as the event itself. 

Whether you’re planning a corporate treasure hunt or an outdoor activity in the capital, the choices can seem endless and confusing. So we’ve scoured the sights of this glorious city to create the ultimate guide to London’s best team building locations.

Top team building locations in the capital

Covent Garden 

Highlights: Bustling cobbled streets, cafes, pubs, shopping and London’s best street performers.

With its charming piazza filled with open-air cafes, boutique shops and street performances, it’s little wonder that Covent Garden is our most popular team building location in London. From the bustling market to the picturesque side streets, this colourful hub is great for teams looking for a traditional London experience with plenty of history attached.

Not only is this area one of the oldest parts of the capital but it also holds a unique mixture of business, art and historical attractions.
