Our ground forces in London are spreading the love to the entire Airbnb community during the occasion of a lifetime.

Why all the excitement? Well, here’s a peek at what the week had in store for our community – and what’s to come.

Personalized guidebooks for everyone – including YOU!

The crew assembled for the Opening Games – literally, as an assembly line. The team put more than 3000 print pieces together into personalized guidebooks for our community in London. The hand-made books were delivered to our London hosts as a surprise for their Airbnb guests. To add to the fun, the team visited neighborhood businesses that had been recommended in the guidebooks, letting owners and employees know that they had been selected for inclusion.


Everyone was chuffed at the honor.

Do you want your very own copy of the Airbnb London guidebook? Well, because we love you, here you go.


Opening-night party

Airbnb has booked out one of London’s most atmospheric pubs, the Punch Tavern, as a space where hosts and travelers can mingle. Every night, the community can show up for a free beer or soft drink on us – because we know that attending events all day can make anyone thirsty! If you’re in London, join us at the Punch for convivial cheer.


London after dark

London can be a creepy place when night falls – if you skulk around the city learning about Jack the Ripper, the bubonic plague, and other shady city secrets. Things weren’t too alarming, though, as Airbnb staff were on hand to quell any flashbacks to the city’s distant, nefarious past.


Behind the scenes with Mastin Kipp

Throughout the week, we’ve been giving our community peeks behind the scenes of our new miniseries featuring The Daily Love’s Mastin Kipp. Tune in for all the antics, as well as updates on the coming-soon series.

So have you missed all the fun? Heck no! If you’re in London, join us at an upcoming event.
