We use state-of-the-art technology, we host award-winning team building events and most of all – we design your team building event bespoke to your requirements, ensuring that it’s not just a social gathering but a functional and valuable event that you take back to the office with you.
From racing through the distinguished streets competing in a GPS Treasure Hunt City explorer, to using one of London’s exclusive venues for our award winning Crime Events, to finding serene open spaces for our adored Outdoor Events. When it comes to Team Building, there’s nothing you can’t achieve in London!
Here’s our top picks for the best venues for Crime Events in London:
- The Vault, Revolution Leadenhall
- The Vault at The Ned (Bank)
- St Ermins
- Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes
- HMS Belfast (where Churchill did lots of planning etc)
- Tower of London
1. The Vault, Revolution Leadenhall
The Vault, Leadenhall, is an impeccable backdrop for any dining event for groups up to 40 guests. If you’re looking to offer your guests a sensational event, this is certainly the space to do it. Saying that, if you’re looking for something a little different this venue works best in conjunction with our notorious, award-winning crime events.
2. The Vault at ‘The Ned’ (Bank)
The original Midland bank Strongroom is the home to The Vault Bar & Lounge. Customarily reserved for members only, this cocktail lounge is padded with more than 3,000 original safety deposit boxes.
Talk about setting the stage! This is the ideal spot for a menacing team building event, a quick evening drink, or a late-night Italian meal all the same.
We Recommend: With such an appropriate setting, to make the most of this venue, we strongly suggest ‘The Great Train Robbery’ as a fitting Team Building event for this location, where you and your team will have the unique opportunity to investigate the original audacious and terrible crime.
3. St Ermins
St Ermin’s Hotel has been at the centre of British Intelligence since before 1940. It was known to the MI6 as ‘The Works Canteen’. Intelligence officers such as Ian Fleming and Noel Coward were to be found in the hotel’s Claxton Bar, along with other less popular names.
Allegedly, Winston Churchill allegedly conceived the idea of the Special Operations Executive there over a glass (or maybe two) of his favourite champagne in the early beginnings of the Second World War.
We Recommend: With such a particular storyline engulfing this venue, we highly recommend using this venue in tandem with our ‘Spy Hunt’ team build. Get closer to the history by deciphering codes, memory tests, showing an eye for detail, exchange secret documents with unknown members of the public and more. Live out your dream scenario of becoming a Spy.
4. Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes
Perfectly located on fashionable Chiltern Street, and only a short walking distance from Oxford street, the intimate and design-led Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London immaculately combines tradition with contemporary style.
All of this, encapsulated in an unrivalled location, with Wembley Stadium only a short journey away from Baker Street Station too, making this venue the perfect base for your team building commotion.
5. HMS Belfast
HMS Belfast is a Town-class light cruiser that was built for the Royal Navy. She now sits permanently moored as a museum ship on the River Thames in London and is operated by the Imperial War Museum.
Explore all nine decks of HMS Belfast to discover what life was like on board for the crew at war and at sea. The most significant surviving Second World War Royal Navy warship.
6. Tower of London
The Tower of London, officially Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London. And what a venue it makes for Team Building.
The Tower of London lies within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, separated from the eastern edge of the square mile of the City of London by the open space known as Tower Hill.
