Overview of Hen weekends in London
Staging a hen weekend in London is without a doubt the obvious choice to make and we don’t blame you one bit, because any bride-to-be deserves the best and our capital city has visitors coming from around the world just to sample its delights.
Whichever day and night time activities tickle your fancy; you’ll do more than just ‘sample’ it, with Hen Heaven placing you on your own London Cloud 9.
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 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 Tiger Tiger or rock out at Piccadilly Institute.
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's Famous For
Big Ben (the clock tower, not the male stripper you might meet), the Thames, Red telephones boxes, Buckingham Palace, amazing shopping!
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.
