There are things going on all year round in the city, so whenever you’re planning to visit for a girly weekend in London, there’s always plenty to do.

Our ultimate guide to a Girls’ Weekend in London will tell you everything you need to know to make the most of your time away together – from the best group activities and nightlife to recommendations of places to eat & drink.

Top tips for groups 

  • Book restaurants and activities in advance where possible to avoid disappointment on the day.
  • Avoid queuing in train stations and save some cash by booking a group travel card before you arrive. For more information about travelling around London check out our handy guide or book your group travel card here.
  • Plan as much as you can before you arrive. London is a big place and it’s very easy to end up wandering around aimlessly. Check out our travel guides here.

Fun things to do

London is a city full of fun things to do. If you’re visiting London with a group of friends, then why not do something a bit different during your time here? From frolicking in giant ball bits to sipping a gin and tonic whilst you play table tennis, you’ll never be bored in this fun-packed city.

Ballie Ballerson

Head to this giant ball pit bar where adults are encouraged to embrace their inner child and play to their heart’s content

Like no bar you’ve ever been to, Ballie Ballerson will take you back to a more childlike time. Throw yourself into one of the giant ball pits, bust some moves on the dance floor or settle in for one of the famous Ballie Ballerson bottomless brunches. For a girls’ weekend in London activity, this ticks a whole lot of boxes.

Junkyard Golf

Golf doesn’t get much more fun than this. Show your pals what you’re made of with a round of the craziest golf in town

Who says golf is just for boys? Billing itself as the UK’s first alternative crazy golf, you’ll have a ‘ball’ sipping on cocktails and making your way around one of the wacky courses on offer. Choose from ‘Bozo’ (a dystopian fairground), ‘Pablo’ (9 holes of polluted paradise), ‘Gary’ (the scrapyard challenge) and ‘Bruce’ (the action hero of the club).
