Christmas is the season to show your loved ones how much you care, so what better time of the year than to get the girls together to make some festive memories.
We recommend planning a Christmas trip to the capital – there’s plenty to do in and around London to spend some quality time with your best friends and you can even get some great photos to cherish for the rest of the year!
Here are our top tips for your itinerary for the best girls’ day out in London…
Catch Up Over Brunch
Start your day right with a cup of freshly roasted coffee and delicious local fare at Flourish Craft Bakery in Watford.
Their mouth-watering brunch menu is very reasonably priced and has all the classics like smashed avocado, poached eggs, cheese toasties and breakfast baps. They have quite a few vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options too, so everyone is catered for.
Don’t forget to check out their specials at the counter – you’ll probably be tempted to grab a brownie or cinnamon roll to go!
Geek Out at the Harry Potter Tour
After brunch, you’ll be right in the vicinity of the Warner Bros Studio, which means that you and your friends can have an adventure on the renowned ‘Making of Harry Potter’ tour. Christmas is the perfect time to visit as they give the authentic sets a truly festive and enchanting makeover by covering them in glitter, snow and icicles.
Board the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 ¾, marvel at the breath-taking Great Hall, enjoy a butterbeer at Diagon Alley, and celebrate the spellbinding magic with your favourite girls.
Enjoy Good Drinks and Good Company
Afterwards, jump on the train from Watford junction to Clapham junction to find some of London’s coolest hangouts.
Clapham Common is a little oasis in the heart of south west London, and you can explore its three ponds and beautiful bandstand. If you’re looking for somewhere low-key for drinks, the Craft Beer Company is nearby – it’s a cosy little pub that serves beers from small producers. Perfect if you like hand-crafted cask ales and exotic bottles. They even have board games like Scrabble on hand if you fancy a friendly challenge!
If you’d prefer to have a few drinks and go dancing, Aquus on Clapham High Street has an amazing cocktail menu and live DJs until the early hours of the morning.
This Christmas, head to London to spend some quality time with your best friends. With our recommended itinerary, you’re sure to make some festive memories that you’ll never forget!
