Spas in London for a hen do

Swerve the limo and stripper idea and plump for a pampering hen do instead

By Elizabeth Darke

Hen dos can be a total hassle sometimes – activities, drinks and decorations all take time (and money) to organise. Relieve yourself of all the pressure and book in at one of London's top spas for a day of total de-stressing instead. Let's be honest, the bride will just be thankful for a few hours away from all the wedding planning.

Hire the room for two hours and, for £90 per person, you get a Champagne cocktail on arrival, an express manicure and express pedicure, plus a Ciate nail polish to take home at the end of the session.
