Christmas Corporate Incentive trip to London

Christmas Corporate IncentiveA tailor made Christmas treasure hunt around London's West End provided a fun and enjoyable activity for winners of a corporate incentive programme and their partners.

The French-speaking group of journalists from the southern Belgium newspaper Sudpresse were met as they stepped off the Saturday morning Eurostar at London St Pancras railway station to be transferred by private coach to their central London hotel to check in.

Keen to experience London at Christmas and to see London's Christmas lights the group was soon back on the coach. En route to Covent Garden the treasure hunt was revealed. Amid shrieks of excitement, the 36-strong group was split into teams of two couples and the finer points of the rules were explained by an interpreter before the teams were dropped off near the Piazza.

Given the literary interests of the group and season, the treasure hunt was themed around the Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol.

Undeterred by the heaviest snowfall that Central London had seen for decades, teams tackled festive clues and scavenged a fun set of Christmas-related items.

Back at the hotel the teams swapped stories over a traditional English lunch of pie and mash and as the buzz and jollity continued the answers were revealed in English and French and prizes awarded to cries of Magnifique and Bravo.
