If it’s been a while since you and the girls have kicked back and enjoyed a holiday, a trip to London is a great way to spend some much needed quality time together. The vibrant area of Shoreditch offers something for everyone, whether you’re looking to spend a couple of days partying or you’re hoping to relax and pamper yourselves.
Millions of people book weekend breaks in London throughout the year so we’ve put together a list of activities to help you and the girls have an amazing weekend during your stay at M By Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City.
Kingsland Road, London
If you want to try something a little different to the standard alcohol-fuelled weekend breaks in London, make your way to the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch and uncover the lives of Londoners through the ages. The aim of the museum is to illustrate the living conditions of Londoners throughout history and how they have changed over the last 400 years. The exhibits include a variety of artefacts, furniture and paintings that create a timeline of London’s residents.
City Road, London
Enjoy what have frequently been referred to as the best cocktails in the world at this speakeasy-style bar in the heart of Shoreditch’s party scene. After getting dressed up, head to Nightjar for an evening of drinking, dancing and singing along to live music. The long list of colourful cocktails at this late-night hotspot will have you spoilt for choice as you dance the night away.
All Star Lanes
Brick Lane, London
Get competitive with the girls and spend the night trying to get a strike at this boutique-style bowling alley on Brick Lane. This is probably the most exclusive bowling alley in London so it’s important to book ahead if you want to pop on those funny-coloured shoes and hit the lanes.
Queen of Hoxton
Curtain Road, London
This colourful rooftop paradise is one of the area’s most popular bars thanks to its quirky décor and friendly atmosphere. Spend an afternoon in the sun with some cold drinks and great company. The bustling atmosphere makes Queen of Hoxton a great place to meet new people, so you and the girls shouldn’t have trouble finding new friends to show you around the city.
Old Street, London
As part of the Indytute organisation, the Shoreditch Town Hall hosts weekly hula hooping lessons taught by the world record holder, Marawa the Amazing. Learn a new skill and have a lot of fun while doing it at one of these action-packed classes. It’s a good way to have a laugh with your friends and is great exercise if you’re looking to burn off some of those cocktail calories.
Bethnal Green Road, London
No girls weekend in London would be complete without a bit of shopping and there’s no better place in Shoreditch than Boxpark. The pop-up mall offers a unique shopping experience by combining high-end brands with alternative boutiques and authentic street food. Boxpark is definitely worth checking out on your travels through Shoreditch.
