Sounds cliché, but London has so much to offer! You won’t be running out of things to do – it’s the overwhelming options that become a stress! Have no fear though. Here at UKGirlThing we’ve put together our top five picks of things to do during the daytime – to save you the hassle of making a short list yourself (Nice huh?) Discover why London really is the capital choice to host your hen party weekend!
1. Borough Market
Being London’s largest and oldest food market, Borough Market is one place that cannot be missed. With a huge variety of food and beverages you can easily spend half the day eating and drinking. From fresh juices, to Japanese street food – there’s something to satisfy every taste as well as so many new cuisines to experience. A true foodie’s heaven!
2. Luxury Afternoon Tea Experience
Visiting the capital of England, it would be rude not to indulge in a truly British past time, Afternoon Tea. The perfect way to spend some quality girl time with your hens – chatting about the big day and of course the Big Night out ahead! All alongside some delicious savoury sandwiches and yummy sweet treats – what could be better? Add a touch of tradition and chic to your party weekend in one of London’s most sought after Afternoon tea venues.
3. Oxford Street
Think London, think shopping! Shops galore, splash out as you discover one the world’s most famous high streets. Flat shoes are a must - pack your most stylish ballerinas and train those guns (carrying bags you’ll need your strength!). We’re talking literally shopping till you drop!
4. Spa-kle Experience
Indulging is hard work – you’ll want to escape the hustle and bustle of the ’big smoke’ for a while with a city Spa-kle Experience. Lose yourself in a world of relaxation in one of the city’s top spas. Rejuvenate yourself with access to top notch facilities, luxury treatments and importantly lunch and bubbly! Our Spa-kle experience offers you and your girls the chance to feel perfectly pampered and preened before your big night out or even the journey home.
5. The View from the Shard
Only completed in 2013, you will want to visit Europe’s highest building – The Shard. A incredible sight, even from the ground with its tradition breaking architecture. You can even enjoy breath-taking 360 degree views from its observation decks on the 69th and 72nd floors!
