London, our glamorous capital city, is a luxurious spot to wave goodbye to your single years. It’s the wonderful home of shopping, Michelin-starred restaurants and it has a lively nightlife like no other. London is also home to some of the finest hen party activities, including afternoon tea on a bus and a private area in the iconic Sky Bar. Lauren of Last Night of Freedom rounds up the best possible ways to celebrate your hen party in The Big Smoke…
Mini Cooper Italian Job
Drive around London in your very own Mini Cooper, and experience life as a true Bond girl on your hen weekend.
This Mini Cooper Italian Job activity will see you completing various challenges – in proper Italian Job-style blue jumpsuits and tweed flatcaps – with gold bars in your boot. The tasks include befriending a police officer, proposing to a member of public at St Paul’s Cathedral and driving to Leake Street Tunnel. There’s a bottle of bubbly and chocolates waiting at the finish line for that added incentive.
The London Cabaret Club
Home of the hugely popular ‘The Best of British Pop’ show, it’ll be a rip-roaring, loud and hilarious hen weekend at The London Cabaret Club.
This exciting performance is nostalgia at its finest, with memories from the swinging 60s and groovy 70s, as well as a look at the notorious London punk movement of the 80s. You’ll then go on a journey through to the Britpop 90s and hits of today. It’s unforgettable, with luxury seating and delicious food included.
London Bus Afternoon Tea Tour
Step aboard the iconic, red London bus and explore the glamorous capital.
This afternoon tea with a difference will take you around London’s famous sights and legendary landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and The London Eye. And, as you are celebrating in fine, British style on a routemaster bus, your sumptuous lunch will be truly traditional, with a selection of dainty and delicious sandwiches, beautiful cakes, various pastries and refreshing tea. Gorgeous food in a motorised tea room? Perfection.
Shoreditch Bar Crawl
Shoreditch is the world-famous party centre of London’s notorious East End.
You can get right to the heart of Shoreditch on your hen do with this oh-so-fantastic bar crawl. Taking you through the world of hipster, boho and alternative bars, you’ll be transported to a cool and edgy paradise. You’ll visit five different and seriously quirky bars, enjoying a shot in each, and a professional photographer will accompany the group to ensure the fabulous memories are captured forever.
This is the hen party high life.
The ‘Walkie Talkie’ building is one of the biggest landmarks in the city, with its curved and unique structure, and panoramic views of the glorious capital. Resting 150 feet in the blue sky, looking down on the goings on of London, is the elite and exclusive Sky Garden. Set amongst the gardens is the Sky Bar, the city’s elite venue that draws in A-list clientele. You and your group will feel like you’ve just stepped straight off the Made in Chelsea set with your very own private sofa area, sampling the gorgeous drinks with a bar tab worth £450.
