London – The heart and soul of the United Kingdom! It is the most populous region; urban zone and metropolitan area in the country and our hen parties certainly show that off in their feedback!! It attracts over 27 million overnight stay visitors a year – a lot of them being our UKGirlThing ladies out for a night on the town! It’s no surprise that with its rich cultural diversity, well known history, city never sleeps attitude, high energy attractions and incredible areas to visit – London is a top hot spot for a hen weekend with a difference. But what is it that draws people in so much? We took a look at what London has to offer from shopping to waxworks!
Shop till you drop!
London is well known for being one of the top shopping capitals in the world, especially with the annual rise of London fashion week attracting international visitors galore and paving the streets with head to toe statement outfits – it’s a pure inspiration zone for fashion. London has several districts for shopping, including Oxford street with its 300+ shops to choose from, Bond Street and Mayfair for the more wealthy of us, The Westfield centre if it’s more than just a shopping experience you want with its various cafés and restaurants included under one roof or Covent Garden and Kings Road where you will discover more quirky and one off pieces that will be ‘simply perfect’ for your hen night out! You will be spoilt for choice and we guarantee you will not go home empty handed!
Like a moth to a flame – or a hen to a….MUSEUM?!
London is home to some of the most incredible attractions in the world, with millions of international visitors a year flocking to see the likes of the London Eye, Buckingham palace, the houses of parliament, Hyde park, the Tate Modern and St Pauls Cathedral to name but a few! You won’t know where to visit first and how to fit it all in to one short weekend! Most places like the National History Museum, British Museum, Tate modern and the National Gallery have free entry too so there’s no reason not to give them a quick look! Just watch out for the Dinosaur exhibition at the National History Museum – they are known to have moved during the night
