Have you been named Maid of Honour? Congrats to you and the blushing bride! It’s time to get down to business and start planning a hen weekend the lucky lady will never forget. Not all bride to be’s are into the typical hen party mayhem, and so theming a weekend to suit the style of the lady in question requires a little more thought and planning.
Whether you choose to stay at hotels in Kings Cross to indulge in her love of Harry Potter, or move closer to Oxford Street for a shopping spree like no other, prepare to plan her ultimate girly weekend away.
You may all be muggles, but one thing’s for sure, when it comes to planning a Harry Potter themed hen, everyone knows that you have to be based at hotels in Kings Cross. Just on the doorstep of Platform 9 ¾, the new Harry Potter store, and a fundamental port of call on the Harry Potter walking tour, Kings Cross is the best choice of destination for any die hard Potter geeks.
20 minutes out from central London, be sure to book your group into the Warner Brothers Studio Tour, where your hen and her girls can discover the sets, costumes, props and more from the blockbuster franchise.
Is your hen a little alternative to say the least? Ditch L-plates and feather boas for wench dresses and jester suits, and prepare a themed weekend at London’s Tower Bridge.
You must book the ladies in for an evening of debauchery at St. Katharine Square’s Medieval Banquet, but the themed capers don’t have to end there. Book group entry into the London Dungeons and visit some of London’s most famous landmarks including the Tower of London.
To theatre lovers, nowhere in London can top the wonder of the West End. For classy ladies, theatre land is one of the most magnificent areas to spend a hen weekend, but knowing how to spend savvy in the centre is essential.
Forget paying out premium prices for swanky city hotels, and look at bargain bases near to the area. Both Holborn and Covent Garden are conveniently located near to the West End, and both have budget accommodation in the area. Ticket prices for London shows can be astronomical, so cutting back where you can is vital.
Call the box office or browse online for group deals on musicals such as Les Miserables, Viva Forever, Mamma Mia, Matilda the Musical, Stomp, We Will Rock You!, and more.
Thinking outside of the box is the best way to come up with something truly original for your hen. Remove all pre-conceptions of what a hen should be from your mind, and start planning a party that fully embraces the hen’s little quirks and characteristics.
