10 BEST TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES IN LIVERPOOL

An influential sea-port metropolis and flagbearer of English pop culture.

Explore activities

Liverpool is a metropolitan city in the county of Lancashire that sprawls out from the northern banks of the River Mersey. The docklands—once a nucleus of England’s shipping and transport industries—and several areas of the city’s historic centre were named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004, titles that have since been revoked on account of irreversible alterations to the site’s attributes.

The city’s crowning achievements are its contributions to pop culture, serving as the birthplace of international music icons The Beatles and comedy stars including Ken Dodd, Les Dennis and Craig Charles, among others.

This cultural hotspot and industrial powerhouse located at the water’s edge has become a breeding ground for wonderfully unique experiences. With so many activities on offer from indoor paintball to stand-up paddleboarding, there’s no better place to host your next team-building retreat.
