British Airways London Eye
Waterloo / Westminster Tube
0870 5000 600

London Eye
The British Airways London Eye is the world's highest observation wheel and its 30-minute slow-moving flight gives unrivalled views over London. From its steel and glass capsules, you can peek into the back garden of Buckingham Palace and, on a clear day, see across seven counties.

Tower of London
HM Tower of London, EC3N 4AB
0870 756 6060

Tower London
At The Tower of London, guarded by the celebrated Beefeaters, visitors can see Traitors' Gate, the priceless Crown Jewels and the famous ravens. Over the centuries, this amazing building has been a fortress, prison, palace and even a zoo. The carefully restored medieval part of the Tower is brought alive by costumed guides. There is also exhibitions of armour and swords and you can see the spot where the notorious second wife of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, was beheaded.



Golf
Lee Valley Golf Course
Picketts Lock Lane, Edmonton, London N9 OAS
020 8803 3611


Golf
Gentlemen only, ladies forbidden? Not any more! A round of golf is a relaxing day out which you can take at your own pace and there's lots of time for gossip and planning of your hen night evening. And best of all, the worse you are, the funnier it is! Off Meridian Way between north Circular Road and Ponders End, this 18 hole flat parkland course with lake and River Lea as water hazards is short but challenging.

London Trocadero
Coventry St., Piccadilly Circus, W1D 7DH
0891-881100

Trocadero
A dazzling metallic maze offering unlimited pleasure for the funseeker. Crammed into a reasonably small street in Piccadilly Circus, there is constant congestion both outside and inside the Trocadero. If gaming is your bag then the Trocadero, esentially an arcade, could be for you. Stunning architecture and gift and clothes shops make this an interesting diversion for an afternoon in London.

Bowling
Aah, ten-pin-bowling - the classic party activity. Skill is not essential, it's all about entertainment and wearing silly shoes! A good place for a drink, chat and a chance to shine. (No, you can't have the guide rails up, they're for the kids!)

Laser Tag
Laser Quest, Q-zar (Quasar), Megazone,, Dark Zone, etc are all based on the same idea. Explore darkened futuristic areas armed with laser rifles you navigate the labyrinth of passages as red laser beams pierce through the dark and its up to you to get the opposition before they get you! An alternative to paintball (Slightly less messy!).
