Have you thought about venues outside of the box?

Venues with wow factor for away days are sure to impress and keep your team talking about their adventures for a long time to come. From fun in the great outdoors to venues that are weird and wonderful, there are an array of possible options.

If you thought that Centre Parks was just for families, think again. Nestling in the Suffolk countryside within easy reach of the capital, Centre Parks Elveden Forest offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor leisure or team building activities, which can be slotted into conference schedules or away days. Forest lodge accommodation, subtropical swimming and gala dinners can also be arranged.

Why stay within four square walls when so many more interesting alternatives are on offer?

Altogether more circular walls can be found at No Man’s Fort located off the south coast, accessible by boat from Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. This historic fortress and the nearby fort of Spitbank are available for a variety of awayday activities and experiences as well as events from intimate dinners for 20 up to conferences for 200 delegates. The whole site can be hired for unrivalled privacy and exclusivity. We could also book your delegates an extended overnight experience in the 22 luxury rooms and suites.

We love the glass walls with a green twist at the Botanical Gardens at Birmingham or Sheffield, both venues having great meeting spaces in fabulous surroundings

Alternatively go large in either the Mediterranean or Rainforest Biome at Cornwall’s Eden Project for a truly amazing experience.

If your team prefer no walls at all then glamping may be the thing for you. For a relaxing chilled-out ‘festival style’ experience The Soul Camp can arrange private campsites, located just over an hour south of London, for groups from 10 to 500.  Bushcraft activities, BBQs and campfires all add to the outdoor team building fun.

But if medieval glamping is more your style, don your chainmail or wimple and head for Warwick Castle. Here an overnight stay for your team in a selection of medieval-themed tents can be combined with team building activities such as Knight School including sword skills and archery. Woodland lodges and deluxe tower suites are also available.
