The itinerary began with welcome drinks in the hotel’s Delta Lounge and an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium and its 60-plus event spaces, followed by dinner at the venue’s very own premium steakhouse, Marco Grill and a night’s stay in the onsite Copthorne Hotel.

The next day guests were given a taste of both traditional and quirky London experiences, with a tour of the city in four restored classic MINIs hosted by tour company smallcarBIGCITY, followed by afternoon tea at The Orangery in the grounds of Kensington Place, cocktails in Artesian Bar at The Langham Hotel and dinner at Balthazar London. To finish off the night, guests made their way to Shaftesbury Theatre for a performance of Motown the Musical, before returning to the Copthorne Hotel and departing the next day.
