Attendees were split into teams and were tasked with finding their way around London, using the Wildgoose bespoke teambuilding app to unlock tasks before reaching checkpoints at six of Leading Hotels' five-star properties, which included One Aldwych, The Ritz, Hotel Cafe Royal, The Landmark, The Baglioni and The Langham.

The London Summer Weekend began on Friday night (12 August) with a drinks reception and dinner at the Baglioni Hotel in Knightsbridge, where the first set of challenges began. Competition was fierce from the off with each team heading out into the capital the next day to unlock challenges such as creating music videos outside a London landmark and cake decorating at The Langham, with BBC Two's Bake Off Creme de la Creme judge Cherish Finden casting her watchful eye over the creations.

The event came to a close at Historic Royal Palace's stunning Kensington Palace on Saturday evening. Guests were welcomed into the Sunken Garden for drinks and canapes as the sun set on a hot summer's day before being guided into the King's Gallery for a three course dinner provided by event caterers Food by Dish.
