Can anyone recommend local fun things to do in the daytime as part of an hen do that doesnt involve getting smashed and generally peaking too early by 4pm?
Im getting married in a few weeks and am having my hen in London. We are probably going to stay in the area in the daytime. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of good things 15 of us could do locally?

We like trying new things. But going down a traditional route I was thinking we could do beauty treatments at Bermondsey sq hotel but they've stopped them : (

the duck tour would be fun in a big group. you should investigate that as an option. My buddy took me on one for my bday a couple of years ago. Apart from getting rather soaked in one of the lower seats, it was great fun. and it doesn't involve alcohol.

The London Eye might do a special for you, or there's that new indoor rock climbing wall thing (near the top end of Bermondsey st?)

ah yes, and Paintballing too - might be a bit of a long shot that one.

Where did I put that pun book?

Duck tours! Brilliant - Ive always been intrigued about those and totally forget about them til i see the boat again. Thought about paint balling then realised I would be covered in bruises for the big day. We are a more tomboyish group though so these suggestions are perfect!

For one of my friends hen do we went to the cheese shop just off Marylebone lane who did a lovely meal thing for us (Moxon Street W1U). I know its not local, but it does certainy prevent the peaking early business and it was nice.

The circus space is an interesting place to learn some new skills and they cater for hen parties.
