The Party

Having the party in London can involve anything from touring the city to hitting the city’s best clubs or pubs. Instead of partying at night, the group can choose to wine, dine, or enjoy a show at London’s West End. With 40 West End theatres, there are so many shows to choose from.

How can anyone make that hen weekend in London extra special? Hens that are visiting the city can always choose to go for a completely “patriotic theme.” “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” and that can apply to any other country like the United Kingdom. Enjoy more than just London’s pubbing culture to have an unforgettable time in the city.

Have a Union Jack themed party! Get dressed in Union Jack fancy dress as the whole hen group strolls the streets of London. That will definitely get everyone’s attention. The party itself, regardless of where it’s held, can be decked in Union Jack decorations too. Think of cupcakes with small flags and table cloth to match. A little creativity can go a long way. For sure, it will be a sendoff party that the bride-to-be will never forget.
