Lake District Team Building Ideas

Overview

The Lake District is an excellent location for a variety of effective and engaging team building ideas. You could teach your employees how to think on their feet and function under pressure with a game of paintball or how to guide and support each other with canoeing or kayaking. And you can do it all in the most beautiful location in the UK, surrounded by stunning mountains and shimmering lakes, it’s like stepping into a postcard. If you want to exercise your team’s creativity there are plenty of fantastic crafty activities to get stuck into as well.

When they day is done, you can treat your team to a delicious pub lunch and drinks to warm up after a cold day in the Lakes. Perfect as both a reward for hard work or a way for a new team to bond. A day out doing Lake District team building activities guarantees great times and a team that’s stronger than ever before.

Travel

The Lake District is a region and national park in the North West of England comprising a number of key destination hotspots such as Windermere, Coniston and Keswick to the north. It is therefore very dispersed and although there are good rail and road links into the main towns, travel once you arrive is predominantly by car. Of course as a national park walking or taking a boat or steamer is the order of the day to see the wonderful scenery.

Tips

Here are a few tips that might help you during your party or group event in The Lake District.

  • The busiest season is between June and August, when prices rocket, car-parks are packed and traffic jams are frequent.
  • If you are going walking as part of you group event or party weekend. Essential items include proper boots, good waterproofs (ideally Gore-Tex or equivalent), plenty of food and water and a detailed walking map; a compass is very useful, but only if you actually know how to use it. Take a mobile phone in case of emergencies, but don’t rely on being able to get a signal.
  • Traffic can be a serious headache at peak times, especially in summer and on bank holidays.
