The hard bit is done. You’ve found a girls weekend in the next six months that you and your friends are free, there isn’t a child or other half in sight, and you’ve agreed on the destination. Now it’s time to get excited. Are you looking for something a little different to the norm but that still has something for everyone, and not sure where to start? From our central London location, you can make the world your oyster whether you’re out for a hen do, girlie getaway or just weekend of group fun. Here are a few ideas that will surprise and delight you for your next girls weekend.
Feeling nostalgic? This ball pit bar in Shoreditch is a must for all those wanting to relive their childhood (but still drink great cocktails). A real adult’s playground, you can dive straight into one of the ball pits for some good clean fun, or order some nibbles and sip retro sweetie cocktails at the bar. Who doesn’t want to feel five again?!
Going to the top of the Shard is on every visitor’s bucket list, so why not do it a little differently? Combine your night out with one of London’s top attractions and get yourself to the silent disco that takes place on the viewing platform of London’s tallest building on a Saturday night. The views are incredible and with three different DJs to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
Looking for more of an activity that’s not too, well… active? Try Swingers for crazy golf with a difference. With two locations in the City and the West End, this themed over-the-top venue is indoors, has a bar and street food vendors, and is a lot of fun. Perfect for groups!
London is (probably) the home of bottomless brunching (or is that New York?!) – either way, we certainly give NY a run for its money. With plenty of places to choose from in the city, you’ll be spoiled for choice. So if you’re looking for something a little different for your prosecco-fuelled meal, try Flesh and Buns. Hidden in a Covent Garden alleyway with cosy dark decor, this delicious Sunday brunch with a Japanese twist won’t disappoint, and the prosecco or wine is free-flowing. Just make sure you’ve remembered to book Monday off work…
If you’ve been to London before, you’ve probably visited one of its famous markets – Portobello, Borough or Columbia Road. For something a little different, why not venture further east to Broadway Market. A small but energetic street market, you’ll find everything from independent jewellery makers to vintage clothes and street food. Once you’ve made it through to the other side of the street, you’ll be rewarded with some fantastic pubs and restaurants where you can relax on a Saturday afternoon with a flat white or a glass of wine.
