Tailored to the recipient’s exact needs, the day will begin at the chalk quarry off road site. Your employee will drive a modern 4×4 as they enjoy exclusive one-to-one tuition from a friendly and professional instructor. Following a lunch break, they’ll get behind the wheel of a Land Rover Discovery 1 as they explore the wooded forest site, full of massive ascents and descents. By the end of the session, they’ll have tackled a variety of terrain in an array of vehicles with expert tuition. The perfect off-road enthusiast day out.

Moroccan tea and water is also served to help aid you both unwind even further. One of the most relaxing new employee experiences. 

Lemur Close Encounter at Drusillas Park

An experience to be climbed on and clambered across with this Lemur Close Encounter Experience at Drusillas Park. In this incredible adventure, your colleagues will get to meet extremely curious, friendly and interactive lemurs who love nothing more than meeting new people. Your team members will prepare their favourite snacks, head inside the enclosure to feed them and learn all about their cheeky behaviour and naughty habits from the friendly keepers. With full day admission to the park and an Animal Encounter certificate to take home, this is the ultimate animal lover’s day out.

Recognise your team members with a taste of the high life with this Brut Champagne Afternoon Tea for Two at the Marco Pierre White Restaurant in Birmingham. Located at the top of The Cube, guests can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views overlooking the city in this exquisitely decorated restaurant, complete with a vibrant atmosphere. The afternoon tea includes the likes of a charming array of finger sandwiches, freshly baked sultana scones with clotted cream and delicious, sweet treats. The fantastic food will be paired with TeaPigs tea and Musetti coffee as well as a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne each for that extra touch of decadence.

Couples Aston Martin Driving Experience with High Speed Passenger Ride

Get your colleagues ready for life in the fast lane with this Couples Aston Martin Experience complete with a High Speed Passenger Ride. Boasting an impressive line-up of Aston Martin supercars, your colleague and their partner or friend will choose one model each to drive. Beginning with a short safety briefing, they’ll get to grips with their respective chosen car before each person drives for three miles around the track. The experience is topped off with a high speed passenger ride together from a professional instructor for an unforgettable ride. This is one of our perfect new employee experiences for couples. 

Tour, Tutored Tastings and a Classic Cocktail for Two at The Spirit of Manchester Distillery

Send your employees on a spirited journey of discovery with this Taste the Distillery Tour, Tasting and Cocktail for Two at Spirit of Manchester Distillery. Things kick off with a drink of choice each, ranging from rum, vodka and gin, before taking a tour of the distillery together gaining an insight into the art of distillation. The tour will continue with a tutored tasting of six award-winning spirits each including One-Eyed Rebel Spiced Rum, Manchester Spirit Grain Vodka, Forty-Five Vermouth, Absinthe and a couple of Manchester Gin samples for good measure. Guests will uncover the history behind each spirit and explore new flavour profiles. After the session, your employees will head to the Three Little Words bar for a classic cocktail each to finish the day in style.

Drive your Own Car Novice Track Day with Instruction

One of our most exciting new employee experiences is a first track day with this Novice Trackday at Stafford Driving Centre. Following a driver’s briefing, your co-workers will hop behind the wheel of their own car as they take to the one mile training track, complete with chicanes and hairpins. Carefully designed with a basic layout and lower top speeds, the track gives the drivers time to focus on perfecting driving lines, braking and cornering. ARDS instructors will be on hand throughout the day, including a single one-to-one tuition session in which your co-worker will ride as a passenger, and during which they’ll offer some great tips and advice out on track. With sessions taking place in timed intervals and a lunch break, this experience will leave your colleagues ready to take their car onto a real circuit.

Whisky and Beer Pairing Masterclass with Meal for Two at Brewhouse & Kitchen

Beer or whisky? Why choose one when your team can enjoy both with this Whisky and Beer Pairing Masterclass for Two at Brewhouse & Kitchen. Under the guidance of a beer and whisky expert, your team will discover the origins and history of both popular tipples including an insight into the similarities of the respective distilling and brewing processes. To help further their learning, they’ll be treated to five tastings from a range of unique whiskies each and five different paired beers each, served with special tasting glasses and nibbles. As they build a flavour profile, they’ll be given tasting notes which will allow them to fully appreciate the subtleties from each variation. To finish, your team members will be able to choose a meal from the extensive Academy menu.
