Treasure Hunt at Kanaloa

1. Let’s Go Hunting for a Hidden Treasure, Shall We?

This is one game that most of us must have played at least once in life. Admit it – either as a part of school activity, birthday celebration or something else, we have all enjoyed participating in a thrilling treasure hunt. Don’t you still have a tender spot in your heart for these mystery quests? By organizing a little treasure hunt, you allow the office staff to slip back into the innocence of their childhood, and experience the same thrill and rush all over again.
Besides, you can always complement the treasure hunt with cocktails, snacks and other delights. And while we are at it, we have got a perfect venue in place for organizing an exciting treasure hunt. Kanaloa is an interesting option for organizing the Tiki-styled oriental themed mystery quests. With guards dressed as Tiki-warriors, flowers, awesome furnishings etc, visiting this venue is an experience in itself. To book or discover more about the Kanaloa venue, click here.

Grange Wine Bar BBQ

2. Or You Fancy a BBQ-Cocktail Party Instead?

If you intend to have a rather peaceful and fun alfresco experience, why not organize a perfect BBQ and cocktail party instead? This option is best if you are not in the mood for treasure hunt or any other draining activity. Just enjoy the little perks of barbecuing amidst the London summers, while enjoying a few drinks. In fact, the employees can participate and prepare some mouth-watering Barbecue snacks themselves. And if you search right, you’d be able to find a venue that offers complimentary drinks and a very helpful staff as well. We do recommend booking Grange Wine Bar for a fine BBQ. The place is amazingly chic, with a very helpful staff. You’d definitely enjoy it there.

Grange St. Paul

3. Are We Game for a Movie Marathon?

If you would like to further add a dimension to the summertime hangout, you can include a movie marathon as well. How many movies do we get to watch while working anyway? Thus, prepare a set list of movies, count everyone’s opinion in it, and book a London venue with large screens and comfortable sitting arrangements to organize a movie marathon night. You can also include the typical movie snack – popcorn and nachos with flavoured sodas etc. But since we are not exactly in our high school, we can perhaps opt for various hard drinks and other snacks as well. You can also appoint this responsibility to the venue staff, to procure the scrumptious snacks and delightful drinks, whereas you enjoy the movies with your colleagues. The Royal Suite at Grange St. Paul’s Hotel is an option worth considering for a personalized and comfortable movie marathon.

Bank of England Outdoor Sports Activites

4. Or Some Fantastic Outdoor Team Building Activities and Sports?

Summers certainly offer an excellent time to organize various outbound activities for the team.
