There are so many ways to have a much-needed girls’ night; the girls’ equivalent of Netflix and Chill, which comes with pyjamas, pizza, and ice cream; the active night with bowling, or perhaps a sports bar with beers; or the Sex and the City-themed night complete with cocktails and dancing. All of them are valid, and they’re a great way to make the bond between you and your best friends even stronger. But when you live in London, you have so many more options available to you. London is alive during the day and it keeps going until late at night, so there’s very little keep you from catching up with the women who mean so much to you, no matter the time. Here are a few ways you could celebrate your girls’ night the London way.
If dancing the night away is your idea of a fun girls’ night, London has so many weird and wonderful clubs to provide some much-needed time with your friends. You can make a night even more memorable by booking a London club table at any of the high-end clubs in South Kensington, Chelsea, or even Mayfair. Whether you want to have a fairly chilled night at Bart’s, London’s first speakeasy dating back to the 1920s, or a weird experience at Cirque le Soir, you’re all guaranteed to have a good time.
Nobody has time for drama in their everyday life, so why not get it all out of your system by taking in a show at one of the many theatre venues London has to offer. Even if you don’t have the funds for a West End production, you can catch a production by the bard himself for only £5 at The Globe Theatre. Cheap theatre tickets are also available at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden, or the Finborough Theatre, Earls Court, both of which are pub theatres so the drinks are discounted. There’s nothing like a thought-provoking play to get the conversation going over a pint once the show is over.
Hyde Park is the largest, most famous park in London, which has hosted many demonstrations throughout history, including protests by the Suffragettes. If you all love history, there are plenty of other free, or inexpensive attractions to visit around London, including free entry to the British History Museum. If you’re feeling brave, you can even go on a late night Jack-the-Ripper tour.
See everything at once
The only way to see everything London has to offer at once is by taking a spin on the London Eye. If you’re in a hurry you can skip the line completely with a London Eye: Skip-the-Line Ticket. This advance ticket allows you to take a ride at any time on the day you plan to visit. From the high vantage point, you can see the Shard, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and all across central London. You can even go during the evening and see London in all its illuminated glory.
