Planning a corporate away day is often no easy task. Finding an activity that is both inclusive and appealing to all involved often requires a bit of creativity and a flexible approach.
If you’re lacking some inspiration, it’s a good thing Bankside has a lot to offer when it comes to corporate incentive packages. We’ve done some digging to highlight what’s available in the local area and if you’re after a cultural or culinary experience – you’re in luck!
Private Tours at Tate Modern
Tate Modern is a great place to start as they offer a whole host of different group and private tour packages. Tours are taken by expert Tate Guides and last for one hour, alternatively there’s the option to organise a tailor-made tour for your group on a theme of your choice. You can also coincide your visit with a three course dinner package in the gallery’s Kitchen & Bar located on Level 6 which boasts one of the best views in London. Find out more.
Baking with Bread Ahead
If a cooking masterclass is more ideal, Bread Ahead’s baking school in Borough Market has just unveiled their September workshops. The school can accommodate groups of 12 – 30 people and all sessions run for 3 hours and cost £80 per person. A firm favourite is their doughnut masterclass, where you will be guided through the process of making doughnuts from start to finish and will leave with ‘custard grenades’ you’ve produced yourself!

Pasta Masterclasses at Union Street Cafe
At urban ristorante Union Street Cafe, you can master the art of pasta making and create signature Italian dishes with hands-on guidance from Head Chef Davide Degiovanni using the finest seasonal ingredients. This 3 ½ hour experience also includes lunch, featuring a selection of starters followed by the pasta you’ve just made, accompanied with wine and dessert. Find out more about Union Street Cafe’s masterclasses here.
River Thames Experiences
For those looking for a more thrill-seeking experience why not hire a boat on the Thames? MBNA Thames Clippers and City Cruises both offer corporate and private hire transfers which can be customised to suit a wide range of functions and events. Organise afternoon-tea or take a high-speed vessel which drops you off right by the O2.
