Perfect for larger teams and corporate away days, we’ll guide your staff down the River Thames, starting at the breath-taking Hampton Court Palace and travelling down to our facilities at Albany Outdoors. Your teams will be given an introduction to the ancient art of dragon boating.
The Journey is a great way to encourage networking between your teams, building stronger working relationships that lead to improved performance back at base.
This is a firm favourite, and is easy to see why, as your team meets at Hampton Court under their own steam (points deducted for lost or misplaced teams… it’s Hampton Court Palace, for goodness sake!) and take part in this iconic journey as the Thames winds its way down along the last stretch of the non-tidal waterway to Albany Outdoors base. Passing historic Seething Wells where narrowboats once docked and fed the huge water pumps with coal, and where history was made when the first steps of eradicating Cholera occurred in 1855.
This journey is completed entirely under your own steam and can even incorporate a refreshment stop along the way as you pull up along one of the historic riverside hostelries.
You will be accompanied by our experienced and qualified staff who will guide and train you so as to maximise your enjoyment during your time with us. They will ensure that you get the right techniques and timing to keep fatigue and frowns at bay so you can enjoy the ride.
On arrival at Albany base we can provide hot or cold drinks as you choose, and other catering options can be included such as BBQ or external caterers.
This Journey will give years of smiles and we will ensure that we take some cheeky pics along the way for you to share with your colleagues holding the fort. Why not make it an annual event?
