Top Corporate Retreat and Team-Building Venues in UK

The single most powerful benefit of corporate retreats and team building exercises is the massive improvements in staff morale. This will instantly translate to renewed enthusiasm for work, which will lead to higher productivity. It also creates and strengthens bonds between employees based on shared fun experiences. Retreats which incorporate skill building exercises will also result in significantly higher retention compared to traditional in-house training. It's not magic - less stress equates to higher focus and concentration. And finally, through word of mouth, these events will also lure new talents to companies. After all, how many will say no to a two-week paid annual retreat?

If you're planning on a corporate retreat for your staff, here are some amazing locations to get you started.

  • Seaham Hall, Durham

    The three greatest appeals of Seaham Hall are the pillow menu (yes, it exists), the £3 million Serenity Spa (reputedly one of the best in Europe), and the fact that Lord Byron was married here and wrote his tragic poem, The Siege of Corinth, here. As far as teambuilding goes, Seaham Hall offers paintballing, wine and whiskey tasting, mud buggies, clay pigeon shooting, karting, falconry and much more - you'll be hard pressed to find time to view many of the paintings hung all over the walls here.
