London Culture & History
You won’t only be celebrating the hen weekend in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the entire world, but one of the most historic too, with it surviving through fires (remember ‘London’s Burning’ from when you were 6) World War II bombings, the plague and much more. Throughout your time in the capital, you’ll see some truly breath-taking architecture (if you're not stumbling around too much).
London's Famous For
Big Ben (the clock tower, not the male stripper you might meet), the Thames, Red telephones boxes, Buckingham Palace, amazing shopping!
London Travel Info
There’s one word when it comes to quick and easy travel in London: the underground. Okay maybe that was two words but you should know the score, pick up a day travelcard and navigate your way around the weaving tube lines (pick up a tube map or download an app). If you fancy a more relaxed ride back to the hotel though, just get one of your friends to flag a taxi.
London Hen Ideas
If there’s one place you’ll never be short of ideas, it’s London. For any shopaholic the city has it all, with Oxford Street housing every big high street name, some little boutiques and a sprinkling of luxury brands – talking about luxury, you’ll find Harrods in Knightsbridge although if you’re searching for the complete opposite, head to Camden for troves of vintage offerings.
Finish your day off with an upmarket meal, a cocktail making session or pole dancing lessons and you’ve done London proud!
London is known as the ‘world in one city’ and you can definitely apply this to the nightlife, with it having a dizzying variety of places to try on offer. You could stay right in the centre and dance the night away in Leicester Square’s Ruby Blue, drink the best and most outlandish cocktails you’ll ever taste at The Experimental Cocktail Club, rock out at Koko in Camden or even rub shoulders with celebs at the ultra-exclusive Mo Vida in Soho.
