    the guest to/at the party

    "The party, _____which I was the guest of honour, was extremely enjoynable."

    The answer is “to”,and I think "at" is possible. Am I right?

    You are right. 'To' is unnatural.

    The only way I can make "to" fit is to add a couple of words.

    The party, to which I had been invited as the guest of honour, was extremely enjoyable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
