5 Fun Team Building Ideas for Corporate Events


We have the perfect venue for all of your corporate needs at the New Continental Hotel, but have you thought about adding a twist with something a little out of the ordinary? Are you looking to create a stronger, more resilient team whilst having a great time? We have put together some ideas below to do just that; taking the office from educational to exciting all in the same day!

Tour of Drake’s Island

How does a morning meeting at the New Continental followed by a team tour of Drake’s Island sound? Be one of the first to set foot on Drake’s Island in 2022 as they are now open for guided tours. Starting your tour from Plymouth (Barbican) landing stage, you will take the ferry through Plymouth Sound to the Island. Keep your eyes peeled for some amazing island wildlife as you arrive, particularly the seals which like to nap on the rocks, land on the jetty and learn about the seagrass that is under your feet. Your tour will last 2 hours during which time, you will learn about the history of the island as you walk the old paths, steps and tunnels.

Teambuilding at the New Continental

What better way than to join us in one of our Event Spaces here at the New Continental and combine team building with all the benefits and convenience of a city centre hotel. Host a game show, get everyone together for a casino night or a Company Olympics. Working with businesses alongside our venue for the perfect corporate team building events that you and your team will love! Check out ACF Teambuilding and Events to see more of what is on offer.

Plymouth Pavilions Ice Rink

Maybe you are looking to get everyone together straight from a meeting for a fun filled activity in the local area. The New Continental Hotel is next to the Plymouth Pavilions Ice Rink which would be an activity to remember. Let us help you by making a corporate day a little less serious and lot more fun with maybe a ‘Lunch and Skate” type of day?

Stand Up Paddle Boarding at Royal William Yard

Party on with a Silent Disco

Could it be that you are considering something a bit wilder than the standard corporate team building event? Could it be a ridiculous idea to hire a silent disco for everyone to party the night (or day) away together? Quite possibly but also a guaranteed fun activity for all attendees paired with everything you could need at a venue when hired at the New Continental.


Contact our Events Team today and we can help you plan a team building day like no other in a city that we are proud to be apart of!
