So you’ve chosen the big smoke as your hen do destination. Excellent choice – the city has more activities than you could ever imagine, so there’s definitely something for everyone! Before you leave, here’s everything you need to know to ensure your London trip goes to plan and all your hens are happy.
London is HUGE. The only way to ensure that everyone arrives in the right place at the right time is with some planning beforehand. The most obvious mode of transport in London is the underground, and a travel card will allow unlimited travel on the underground and the famous red London buses for the day – great if you’re doing some sightseeing too.
The next best mode is taxis – however be sure to check how far you’re going before you travel. London taxis can be expensive, and you don’t want to rack up a massive bill and lose drink money for the night ahead! This option also runs the risk of getting stuck in the notorious London traffic, so make sure you leave in plenty of time. Most importantly, always make sure that you only get in licenced black cabs, safety first!
This is probably one of the most difficult tasks. Where do you even begin in a city with so many options!? Luckily, we are here to help. Release your inner superstar in our celebrity approved 5-star luxury hotels – with spa access of course – in many of the centrally located hotels we can offer.
London is the Mecca of shopping, with a huge variety of different stores in the capital. Head to Oxford Street for the Ultimate high street experience, or for something a bit different check out the vintage markets of Spitalfields, Mayfair’s luxury boutiques or the unusual treasures of Convent Garden. Definitely make some time in your plans to hit the shops, perhaps before an afternoon tea at one of the city’s best-known hotels, or a cocktail masterclass to show off your creative side.
PUBS AND CLUBS
London is home to a massive variety of pubs and clubs, so choosing the right one for your party can seem a daunting task. To make it a little easier, we at Red7 have already done the groundwork for you! We know all the best clubs, and can arrange pre-paid guest list entry so you and the girls won’t have to worry about the club being full, or having to queue outside in the cold in your best party clothes. Whether it’s a high tea at the Mad Hatters Table, or a night transporting you back into the 70s with disco classics, the only thing you need to worry about is what you’re going to wear.
When it comes to sightseeing in London you are truly spoilt for choice, and with all the cultural spots London has to offer it’s hard to know where to go. Our favourite way to see all the sights is with a London Eye Flight, teamed up with the Thames river cruise. This way you get to see all the big sights and can enjoy a glass of champagne whilst you’re at it!
