Venturi's Table

Wandsworth-based Venturi's Table offers cooking events where teams are welcomed into their own private kitchen for four hours. The emphasis is on relaxation as delegates sip fine wines while they prepare a meal that they then sit down and eat together. A competitive element can be incorporated, with teams or individuals pitted against each other and challenges such as the Masterchef-inspired activity, where groups invent a meal using mystery ingredients.

The London Skyline Team Machine

London-based agency Fresh Tracks counts GSK, Orange and Barclays among its previous clients and offers a range of activities for corporate groups. Its London Skyline Team Machine activity is a large-scale indoor or outdoor event that requires teams to create a famous London landmark as a moving sculpture using a set of building materials and a muddled plan that they must work together to understand before they can commence building.

Up at the O2

Launched this summer, Up at the O2 is a 90-minute experience that combines an exhilarating outdoor challenge with a completely new perspective of London. Groups of 15 at a time are kitted out in bespoke climbing suits, shoes and safety harnesses to traverse the roof of the O2 arena via a tensile fabric walkway suspended 52m above ground level. Delegates can enjoy the panoramic views from the viewing platform at the summit before descending back to Base Camp.

iSpy: London

Using the latest hand-held mapping technology, this activity is a high-tech way to experience London. Teams are required to use interactive satellite images and programmed locations on their iPads.

With more than 70 challenges and destinations, the teams must plan their route to locate and solve as many clues as they can in the allotted time and generate maximum points.

The activity is suitable for groups of four to 1,000, and typically takes half a day.
