It’s been a big year for Stamford Bridge, and that’s without discussing the football. Not being much of a sports fan myself, I wasn’t sure what to expect when visiting their ‘experimental’ event earlier this year, but the venue has continued to grow and shift for the corporate world over the last few months.
Between the newly refurbished suites, underground venue and executive boxes, there’s plenty for meetings teams to do focus on outside of the football. Set over an 11-acre site, Stamford Bridge is one of London’s most complete venues, offering versatile meetings, events and hospitality spaces including music venue Under The Bridge and the Chelsea FC Museum
In response to rising demand from existing and potential clients looking for teambuilding packages with a difference, Stamford Bridge is even offering businesses the chance to book the Escape Room as part of an event or as an add-on experience. Made to look like a 1950s asylum, smaller teams can race against the clock to search for clues and solve puzzles to allow them to escape, while larger teams can take part in their elusive ‘treasure hunt with a twist’, the City Centre Escape.
For visitors looking to stay in the city venue, there are two different hotels within the walls of the Chelsea grounds, as well as, an onsite restaurant, the Chelsea Health Club & Spa and an onsite private car park, all around a two-minute walk from Fulham Broadway underground station.
For me, the stadium offered much more than just football. The luxury spaces as well as the fun of the underground rooms leads to a very versatile corporate destination that can provide much more than just a good view. Conveniently central and able to cater to smaller business needs as well as bigger experiences, Stamford Bridge is a venue that is definitely going to impress clients, unless they’re a Spurs fan.
