The UK Team Experience the Gruesome History of London Bridge!
They may not be strangers to streets of London but there is still a thing or two our team in the UK could learn about their hometown. To round off seven months of hard work, they went to the UK’s scariest attraction, The London Bridge Experience and Tombs where they travelled back in time to uncover London’s gruesome history!
The nerves began to kick in pretty soon after the team arrived at the attraction. Firstly, they were guided through a dark, dingy tunnel, where cobwebs draped the ceilings, and the smell of must and fear filled the air! A deafening bang saw the whole team jump out of their skin and out of nowhere a man in medieval attire appeared and led them down onto “the Bridge”.
The Londoners laughed, screamed and cheered their way through 2,000 years of history as they came face to face with Queen Boudica’s Iceni tribe and the Roman army. They were told terrifying tales at The Star Inn on Fish as Jack The Ripper and Ben Crouch lurked in the lanes on the look out for the next victim. The Keeper of The Heads took them to her latest victim before sending the body parts to the four corners of the country.
The team also passed through the Chapel of Thomas Becket and then onto the Bridge as The Great Fire of London blazed through the city! Without a moment to digest the horror they’d only just experienced, they were thrust into a vortex and re-entered present day hell AKA The London Tombs!
Reluctantly, our employees shuffled their way into the ‘Hellevator’ were they grabbed onto each other’s shoulders and clung on for dear life as they carefully tread through the horror maze. It was here where they encountered a "boneyard", squeezed through tight gaps in the walls, bumped into creepy circus clowns, walked into the basement of lost children and ran as fast as they could from the bloody butcher and his chainsaw!
After having the shock of their lives, the Londoners calmed down with a well-deserved Italian meal and drinks where they discussed who was the most scared!
“It was by far the most scared I have ever been in my life! It was horrifying and fun all at the same time - a very different kind of team-building than I expected but at least I know that I can rely on my colleagues to keep me safe!”, Hardeep.
“When you’ve lived in London for so long you tend to lose sight of the city’s rich history. It was a great way to re-discover my hometown and experience some new with my work-mates”, Danny.
