Edinburgh Team Building Ideas

Overview

As the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh brings together a historical mix with its medieval castle, cobbled streets and the elegant Georgian buildings. Edinburgh is a city of two halves, which offers great a variety for a corporate team building weekend.  The old historical side of Edinburgh has the medieval castle and the cobbled alleys whilst the other side offers an elegant but classic Georgian town.  Edinburgh is city of culture and has over 4,500 listed buildings, which is the highest concentration in the world. So why not have your team building day in Edinburgh We have expert party planners waiting to answer your questions and help you arrange the best team building activity that will bring your whole team together!

If you like to create your own corporate event, then simply click the ‘create your own team building’ and take a look through our Edinburgh team building ideas. When you’re ready give us a call or enquire for a quote.

Travel

Although a large city, Edinburgh’s major sights and hotels tend to be within walking distance of the two main train stations Waverly and Haymarket. However, if you don’t fancy a trek up the Royal Mile to the famous Edinburgh Castle or along Princess Street for some retail therapy then as you would expect there are plenty of black cabs to hail along the way or for some real fun, why not try a Rickshaw.
