When it comes to moving into a new role or jumping ship to join a new company, it can sometimes be difficult to break the ice with new colleagues and other team members. Organising a team building activity is an ideal way to allow employees to bond, get to know each other better and most importantly, have fun! London boasts an extensive range of unique activities to enjoy, ranging from overnight stays to shorter activities such as fitness classes or life drawing sessions.
The 4 team building activities we have suggested below are all located near our Moorgate offices in East London, making them a great place to unwind to after a day at your desk.
The Underground Cookery School
Learning a new skill with your new workmates is a brilliant way to bond. The evening begins with canapes, music and champagne (which is also served throughout the class) to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, before the fully trained professional chefs at the Underground Cookery School guide you through each dish, allowing you to get involved with the prepping, chopping, baking, roasting, juicing, dicing and of course, eating! Each menu can be tailored to suit special dietary options, to ensure everyone can take part.

Feeling competitive? A game of mini golf is the perfect way to drum up some healthy competition between employees. Situated just behind the glorious Gherkin, Swingers transports you out of East London and into a 1920’s countryside. As well as 2 bespoke crazy golf courses, there is 4 cocktail bars, 3 street food vendors, private hire spaces and a podium to pose on at the end when the scores have been revealed. Groups are limited to 6 per hole, but if you’re looking to book something on the bigger side, the venue has capacity for up to 500 people.

Cutter & Squidge Masterclass
As voted by the Evening Standard, Cutter & Squidge is the number 1 best baking class in London! Enjoy a prosecco on arrival, before you learn to bake and decorate your very own masterpiece. Maximum capacity for each class is 8, so this experience is absolutely perfect for small teams, allowing conversation to flow throughout the 2-hour class. Feeling super generous? Take your cake into the office communal space on Monday for instant employee of the week status.
