The perfect girls weekend in London

Finally it’s payday and after the long 5 week wait after Christmas, it’s now time to treat yourself and your besties to a break away. Have a look at our perfect girls weekend in London for some great inspiration.


Beat the traffic and travel to the Capital early to save some cash. More time means more fun and what better way to kick off a weekend in London than going to see a West End show? Whether you chose to defy gravity with Wicked or be a dancing queen with Mamma Mia, there’s the perfect show in London for everyone.

After the matinee madness, it’s time to check into your hotel. With many great Travelodges in Central London, there’s always one right at the heart of the action and at a purse pleasing price. If you want to get to your hotel first before starting your weekend activities, select our early check in (12pm) when you book.

As the evening draws in and the bright lights of evening life start to shine, take in the illuminated beauty of London on the Thames. What better way to experience the city at night than on a City Cruises river cruise? With complimentary wine or soft drink on arrival, a live music performer and tasty nibbles to snack on throughout your 2 hour journey, you can relax with the girls while learning all about London’s rich history- keep your ears open for some top secrets too!


It wouldn’t be a girls’ weekend without a little retail therapy, would it? It’s also your last chance to bag a bargain in the winter sales too. Whatever your style, London has it all, whether it’s the unique and vintage finds of Camden, the high street favourites at Westfield or the more edgy and ‘out there’ finds of Carnaby Street.

Whilst you’re at Carnaby Street, why not take the weight of all those bags off your feet and head to Cahoots for a ‘squiffy picnic’? Venture down to the Cahoots tube station and transport yourself back to post-war 1940’s where swing, sing-a-longs and smashing food and cocktails are firmly on the menu. Every Saturday from 1pm, you and your chums can tuck into a good old fashioned picnic with a cocktail twist surrounded by 40’s charm and an atmosphere that’s hard to beat.


Why not extend your weekend and take a day to relax and recuperate with your pals before getting back to reality? A trip to the spa is the perfect way to unwind and treat yourself and your body to a little bit of luxury away from the hustle and bustle. Porchester Spa have a wide selection of treatments from massages and facials, to manicures and gel nails that will leave you feeling refreshed and ready and raring to take on the next week back at work.
