Team Building: A Day of Culture

As a bit of a change to the usual action-packed teambuilding adventures, I thought it might be interesting to go on a more slow-paced, ‘cultural’ tour around our local city of Liverpool.

There are a few members of the team who are quite new to the area, and we thought this would be a good opportunity for them to explore the local surroundings of our amazing city. Also, some of our more local members of staff had never explored these places either!

We started the day with hard hats on a tour around the Williamson Tunnels, which are only a short 10 minute walk from our Liverpool Science Park office. We learned about the fascinating history of Joseph Williamson and the mysterious tunnels that lie beneath Edge Hill. Who would have known that such extensive tunnels are right below our feet?

Our next stop was the magnificent Liverpool Cathedral which is simply enormous! It was impressive to see the architecture on such a grand scale.

The views we had from the top of the tower were spectacular. We spent a long while at the top, taking in the breath-taking views, taking photos and pointing out distant landmarks to each other.

Lunch (and energy after all that walking and climbing!) was provided at MeetFrank. We enjoyed an awesome hotdog lunch with delicious sharer fries at our final destination; Ghetto Golf.

We ended our day with a rather unusual round of crazy golf in the incredible surroundings of the graffitied old Cains Brewery. Some of the holes were rather bizarre, and some were downright disturbing – haha! All in all, a good day of team building and getting to know our local area was had by all.
