Latest feedback

"...There is so much planning that goes into a Hen weekend and GoHen made everything that much easier. They handled everything wonderfully. Answered a million emails and questions promptly; with politeness and kindness. They organised everything so well and I would recommend them to anyone! The highlight of the weekend? The cocktail making class. It was such incredible fun! Thank you GoHen for making my sister's Hen weekend such a fabulous one!..."

Star Bars

Bars in London

Barrio Central - Cool, quirky and totally different, Barrio Central has a flavour all of its own. As well as plenty of cheeky cocktails you can enjoy the kitsch décor and being part of the London's trendiest bright young things.

Big Easy - If you're looking for the perfect venue to launch a big night out then Big Easy has it all, live music, great food and an incredible array of drinks. In fact, we'd never seen anything like the display behind the bar!

Dirty Martini - Cooler than James Bond's underwear, the Dirty Martini oozes sophistication. Shaken but never stirred, with signature martinis, cocktails and some of London's best DJ's.

Food in London

Best Bites

Joy King Lau - China Town is a wash with fantastic places to eat, picking one can be a tough task, but for great food at a comfortable price, one of our favourites has to be Joy King Lau.

The Culpepper - While a drunken carpenter might well be responsible for the building missing a floor, The Culpepper's chefs and rooftop garden are responsible for some of the best pub grub in London at this trendy and friendly watering hole.

Sights & Sounds

Sights
Sights and Sounds in LondonYeah! London baby! One of the most exciting and vibrant cities on the planet. There is so much to see and do here it's difficult to know where to even begin?!?
If you're after a spot of culture then head to one of the many museums and galleries. We particularly like the V&A Museum which always has plenty of design and fashion for trendy hens to admire.
If you're strangers to London and want a quick bit of sightseeing our top tip would be; Start at Trafalgar Square, walk down Whitehall (past Horseguards Parade, Downing St, the War Rooms, The Cenotaph, etc), you'll come out at Parliament Square where you'll see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey. 50 yards to the right you'll also get a look at The London eye and the Thames. Simples!

Sounds
If you want to sample sounds of London then Convent Garden is the place to be, live music in the evening compliments the fantastic street artists and musicians you'll find during the day. Not forgetting the Opera House and proximity to some of the most famous West End musicals.

Girls About Town - Getting around London...

Despite its size London is surprisingly easy to navigate. If you're not too familiar with the underground you can pick up maps at most West End stations. An Oyster Card or Travelcard allows you access to London's buses, underground, overground and DLR. For extra laughs why not hop on a Boris bike?
Please note; Most of our London accommodation is right in the heart of the city so everything you need is close at hand. If you decide to get a cab always go for a licensed black cab as many unlicensed taxis do prowl the streets.

Fancy a "knees up" in good old London Town?

A London hen party has got to be close to the pinnacle of pre-nuptial partying, it's impossible to imagine the girls won't love it! There are some of the best shopping opportunities in the world, the top restaurants in the UK have made their home here, and between the pulsing nightlife and the huge variety of activities and events, a well prepared hen party in London can be the celebration of the century!

Maidens in Chelsea...

Have you seen the size of the city? It's huge! One of the biggest in the world, not just in the UK. Take a look at our London hen party activity suggestions for an idea of what the big city has to offer - we've got over 75 options listed for you and the girls! A program including a dance work out, lunch on a Thames cruise, and a cocktail mixing session still leaves you plenty of time to squeeze in a stroll round the shops or sight seeing Sunday morning... unless you'd rather end the weekend with a spa visit to rest your feet!

Where the stars come out at night...

There's an enormous and remarkable variety of enticing venues throughout the capital, from the sleek haunts of Soho to Leicester Square's buzzing bars and restaurants to the cool Shoreditch clubs. Your London hen party can take a limo from the hotel and arrive at an award-winning bar for early evening drinks, before heading off for dinner in a fabulous restaurant, then finish the evening at a megaclub to dance until the early hours. Alternatively, you might fancy a few laughs at a comedy show, a trip to the theatre, horse racing, cabaret, or a naughty male strip show... and that's just off the top of our heads! Or you can just spend the evening celeb spotting in the glitzy West End.

Heading into the city...

There are six airports in London, and buses run between the airports frequently, so international hens, or those coming from the other end of the UK, won't have trouble getting in. It's also very easy to get in and around the city by train, as it runs networks all across the UK. Coaches in to Victoria Coach station are cheap when booked in advance, and while they take substantially longer than the train, they can save you a lot in terms of ticket price. Driving around London can be tricky, but if you do decide to cough up the congestion charge, head towards the M25, which circles the whole of Greater London.

The Grand Hotels

There's no two ways about it, despite having a huge number of hotels, the better accommodation can be expensive. Location is important but it doesn't have to be a deal breaker, you definitely want to be central but the tube central covers a big area. The most important thing is that whatever budget you have you and the girls are in a favourable neighbourhood. You've also got to think about how you're arriving, for example, do you want to be near a train station, would direct access to the airport be useful, do you need parking? If you click through to our London accommodation page you'll find the list of options from hand picked hostels right through to 5 star hotels. The company originally started out in Covent Garden, London WC2 and with over a decade's experience in organising hen weekends in London almost weekly throughout the year, we're clued up on where to stay and where to get the best value for our groups.

Shop until you drop...

One of Europe's mighty shopping Meccas, From the luxuries of Harrods, Harvey Nicks, Fortnum & Mason, and Selfridges to huge modern shopping centres like Westfield, and renowned retail giants like Oxford Street, Bond Street, and Kings Road. Don't overlook the charismatic and quirky markets like Portobello Road, Camden Market, and Brick Lane for whimsical, colourful and creative finds. Borough Market is great for food, and a tasty place to visit for breakfast Sunday morning too. A London hen do needs a little down time to avoid overwhelming the guests, so delight the girls with a few hours of retail therapy!
