Get to grips with London culture...

Airbnb's expansion into more than just a room-rental service continues with the company's latest experience — a three-day trip to London to learn all about grime.

The "Grime Scout" package is hosted by Dom, an A&R for London/Berlin label, Slip Records, who teaches punters about the genre, hitting up various spots around the capital in the process.

Day one involves scouting for talent in the East End; on day two you'll meet up with a producer for a chat and "get a taste for the studio's current work and tips on favorite up-and-coming artists" along with the possibility of sitting in on a recording session; and finally Dom will take you to one of the city's underground clubs where you "might just end up partying in the same spot as someone like Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, or ASAP Rocky."

The experience is priced at £190 ($230 if you're Stateside), and reviews seem overwhelmingly positive so far. For more info on the trip, head here.
