Top Five Activities for a London-Based Hen Do

Posted on Mar 25, 2017 | Travel Tips |

As far as UK cities go, London is one of the most vibrant and diverse. With a plethora of attractions, events and activities available to her visitors, no matter what you’re in our capital for, you will surely be able to fill your itinerary so that your stay isn’t a boring one. Travelodge have cheap deals on hotels in London, so if you find yourself in the city for longer than a few hours, your stay can be an affordable one.

If you are lucky (or unlucky?) enough to be arranging a hen weekend for someone, it can be as stressful or as smooth as you make it. Organising large numbers of ladies can be a bit of an arduous task but if you research your options and stick within a certain budget, you can’t really go far wrong. If the hen is hoping for a weekend break in a bustling city, London is an absolute must, with a myriad of activities on offer to keep the days and evenings fun-filled.

See a West End Show

If you already have crammed evenings, you could always aim to catch a matinee show to avoid any rushing or clashing of activities. With so many incredible performances being shown at the moment, you are sure to find a show that suits.

From the powerful Phantom of the Opera to the spellbinding Wicked, not to mention the new Viva Forever musical based around the music of the ultimate Girl Power group, the Spice Girls, there’s plenty available and you can find great ticket packages online to save your group some money.

Go Out for a Meal

Why not go all out and treat your hen to a slap up meal and a fine dining experience? There are so many excellent quality restaurants in central London. How about some Michelin star fare at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal – his new 1 star establishment near Hyde Park? Priced at £36 for a three course lunch, it could make a perfect meal to begin your weekend on a Friday lunchtime.

Afternoon Tea at the Ritz

Although there are a whole host of tea rooms scattered across London that would be perfect for an afternoon tea, there’s nowhere quite like The Ritz, and with its traditional afternoon tea priced at £45 per person, it may be a little pricey, but it’s completely worth it. Push the boat out and add champagne to the proceedings – after all, it’s a celebration!

Bungee Jump

This is definitely one for the thrillseeking adrenaline junkies. Situated just outside of London in Windsor and Bray, you will find the perfect chance to have an experience of a lifetime. All it will take is a little courage to take that first step off the platform.

Pamper Yourselves

The Sanctuary in Covent Garden is a perfect place for all things girly. A perfect treat for an afternoon in London, the group will love the opportunity to relax in the comfort and luxury of this beautiful day spa. Surprise the hen with an exclusive treatment to make her day.
