Whilst in the UK, the guests will also get to experience the vibrant and heritage-rich city of London, taking in numerous sights, including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye and Big Ben. There is also a number of exciting leisure activities planned, including a trip to Thorpe Park, Britain’s leading amusement park.

The group also attended a Chelsea game on 24 September as “special guests” who were taken on a ‘behind the scenes’ stadium tour. The group will depart London on October 3 2011 to return to their respective countries.
