Gone are the days of sitting in a circle and stating 3 interesting facts to our new co-workers. These days, modern team building involves a lot more activity and fun, with businesses choosing to invest in activities rather than days stuck in the office.
Many managers and business owners have discovered that to create a truly bonded team, fun and excitement is the answer. People are a lot more likely to bond laughing over a game of mini golf, than sat in a boardroom painfully trying to get to know each other.
One of the best places in the UK for team building is the vibrant city of Liverpool and as it’s our home, we’ve put together a few of our favourite team building activities in Liverpool for you to choose from.
1: Ghetto Golf Liverpool

This mini golf game for adults is perfect for those with smaller teams and helps to create a good comradery between all staff. Not to mention, you’ll be able to see which of your staff is the most competitive as you start to tally up the scores.
