15 best team building nights out in Manchester

11 months ago

There’s nothing worse than a team-building activity that feels awkward and like a chore rather than something that you’re meant to enjoy. That’s why we’ve pulled together this guide with 15 of the best team-building activities Manchester has to offer.

From escape rooms to axe throwing, skiing to shooting and more, there’s plenty of entertaining activities to keep everyone happy. Ditch the typical work pub crawl and give everyone the chance to feel included, leaving you with lasting memories and a stronger team bond instead of a hangover (unless you decide to hit the town afterwards, too – we’re not judging).

Use our search function to find even more things to do in Manchester and beyond.

    As well as bowling, there is fancy-pants bowling with neon zig zags. A bit of a cross between a new restaurant opening and Blade Runner. All the bowling is pretty sleek and shiny though with the standard graffiti décor.

  • Christmas party at Whistle Punks Axe Throwing in Manchester
    Book Now Manchester City Centre

    Whistle Punks

    Activities

    Hearing the thud of axes can be a little unnerving as you leave the cinema in the Great Northern – especially after a slasher film – but the axe throwing at Whistle Punks is about letting off steam not cutting off limbs.

    It’s competitive and a bit like darts really, only you’re throwing whacking great axes at the target instead. A bullseye with an axe is very satisfying indeed.
