Girls are increasingly electing to celebrate their last weekend of freedom in style by hosting their hen party in London.
Online PR News – 26-February-2010 – – London has fought off many marauding gangs over the years, but the capital’s latest invasion is coming from groups disguised with L-plates and armed with flashing wands and suspect inflatable items.
The groups in question are of course hen parties, who are choosing London as the destination to host their last night of freedom in ever increasing numbers.
London has long been the obvious choice to host an extra-special party for a bride-to-be as it contains an embarrassment of riches in terms of entertainment and hospitality. However, the recent financial downturn had led to hens seeking cheaper alternatives, or staying closer to home to celebrate their departure from single life.
This is beginning to change and girls are once against flocking to the Big Smoke for a wild and memorable hen night, or a whole weekend for those able to splash out and really go to town.
At Hen Heaven, one of the UK’s leading organisers of hen parties, hen weekends in London is now the most requested package as groups step up their planning ahead of the deluge of summer weddings planned for 2010.
Rob Hill, founder of Hen Heaven, said: “London has always been a popular venue for our hens, but we have not seen such a high level of demand for one destination as we currently are.
“If you are in the capital at the weekend you will not have to look far to see a group of hens and all of the customary hen night accessories.
“With so many fantastic comedy clubs, theatres, restaurants and clubs it really is no surprise. We can also offer so many day time activities in London, including pole dancing lessons and a perfume making experience.”
Hen Heaven organise hen parties throughout the UK and mainland Europe, where hen weekends in Dublin is their most popular destination.
