Laura recently had the opportunity to experience a FAM Trip at Chessington World of Adventures, she was lucky enough to take 4 guests along with her to enjoy the day. Read all about her experience at Chessington:
We began by meeting in the Safari Hotel and after a short presentation we explored the facilities that this hotel and sister property Azteca Hotel have to offer.

Their conference centre comprises of six modern meeting rooms which can accommodate up to 250 guests. These spaces benefit from in-built AV equipment, complimentary Wifi and car parking.
