Go Paintball, Whyteleafe
If the weather is on your side and you want to enjoy some outdoor paintball action, then Go Paintball is a great choice. As one of the closest outdoor paintball locations to the centre of London, this spot is perfect for blowing off some steam in a forest environment. The set is run by a former number one UK paintballer so you know the experience you’ll have here will be top-notch.
The location caters to both adults and kids so is perfect for a family day out. There is also a range of packages, such as corporate events or school trips. Additionally, packages are available for laser tag, for people that don’t fancy being hit by balls of paint or for players that are looking for a slightly less intense experience.
Tactical Warfare Airsoft, Croydon
Located roughly an hour outside of the city centre, Tactical Warfare Airsoft is the perfect answer to the question “what shall we do this weekend?”. Game events take place every other Saturday at their woodland location in Croydon. This location offers both new and experienced players an opportunity to get involved with airsoft and become part of a team for the day.
Packages are available for players with their airsoft rifles and for people who want to hire everything on the day. There are half-day and full-day packages available depending on how long you want to play for. We’d suggest taking some bottles of water, some lunch and some snacks to keep you fuelled throughout the day.
Campaign Paintball, Cobham
Found towards the south west of the city centre, roughly a 30 minute drive away from the capital, Campaign Paintball is set on a 100-acre location of woodland and conveniently located close to the A3/M25. The staff here are excellent and can cater to all abilities, from seasoned paintball veterans to first-time players.
Offered at this location is both paintball and laser tag, accommodating adults and children. There is a range of maps to choose from including the nuclear waste-themed ‘Chemical Alley’, the overgrown woodland of ‘Jungle’ or the wild west-inspired ‘Dodge City’.
Mayhem Paintball, Essex
Despite being called ‘Mayhem Paintball’, this is not all that the site offers, with laser tag and airsoft both forming part of their offering. This outdoor location includes a range of obstacles including hay bails, waste barrels, shipping containers and even vehicles. With their paintball package, you’ll be given all the equipment you need, meaning all you have to do it get to site. This is made easy too, with their pick-up and drop off service, shuttling players to the closest central tube line station.

Heading outside of the city of London, RW Paintball is a company that has access to a range of locations in the South East, most within driving distance of the city. The sites are woodland based and include a range of playing areas creating a diverse experience for each time you play.
Paintball days typically start at 9am and conclude at 3.30pm so you’ll need to pack water, snacks and a bite to eat for lunchtime. Their packages are designed to suit any budget, meaning that you can get involved from as little as £18 including ammunition, gun and overalls.
