Let’s face it the Big Smoke has plenty to offer when it comes to a night out! Sometimes you may feel a little spoilt for choice; with so much to do, you might not know where to start. Whether you’re visiting London for the weekend or your a local, let’s take a look at some fun night out ideas. 

Theatre trips

You won’t want to leave London without experiencing the theatre. With so many critically acclaimed shows being put on year after year, there really is something for everyone. First things first you’ll want to decide on what kind of show experience it is that you’re looking for. Do you want something that’s a real classic? Or a new show by an emerging writer? Is it a musical that tickles your fancy? Or would you prefer more of a traditional play format? Shows like The Book of Mormon have been popular this year as has the ever classic Wicked. If you’ve got children and it’s a family night out, you could try shows like The Lion King or Aladdin? Great shows stick in your memory forever and can be an excellent night out no matter how old you are. Many theatre tickets are really affordable these days so you won’t have to break the bank to go! 

Take a ghost walk

Do you like getting scared by real ghost stories? Why not try something a bit different and go on a ghost walk through London? You could try the Paranormal Activity tour in Farringdon if this sounds like your kind of thing. Come hunt for ghosts and poltergeists through the streets and listen to tales that will chill you to the very bones. The tour takes you to the abandoned gaol cells, which were once home to infamous serial killers. Your tour guides will even help you along the way to make contact with ghosts (if you’re brave enough)! 

Try the Ice Bar

Want to go out for a few drinks (but with a twist)? Why not try London’s famous Ice Bar. A bar made entirely of; you guessed it- ice! Sip on some gorgeous cocktails at -5ºC, an experience not to be missed. Ice Bar provides extra warm attire to put on over your clothes so you’ll be comfortable while you party in style. There are so many excellent bars in London to try, so it’s hard to pick one. For an utterly original experience- Ice Bar should be top of your list. 

Thames Jazz Dinner Cruise

Want to experience the Thames in a luxurious and fun way? Then the Thames Jazz Dinner Cruise could be perfect for you. You’ll get a delicious three-course meal and bar, providing wonderful Champagnes, beers, and wines. The delightful ChiJazz band will keep you good and entertained with some excellent jazz classics and jazz covers of contemporary songs. For a jazz-tastic night of fun, this is your best bet! It’s hard to fit everything in when in London (you’ll need a few visits to do it all)!
