Our most epic Outdoor Activities for Hen and Stag Parties in London!

For many (including myself), London represents a 24 hour, non-stop conglomeration of everything that is vibrant about Britain.

Yet here you are, faced with a burgeoning mountain of endless possibilities for entertainment and you find yourself overwhelmed by the choices available to you! This is ok, and certainly not panic worthy. As a previous tenant of this unique city, I feel qualified to invite you to explore some stand out choices for an exciting and memorable Stag or Hen weekend in our nation's capital! 

Many don’t immediately associate London with its potential for outdoor entertainment. Often the imagery of the capital stems from the rich culture, stunning landmarks and bustling atmosphere. However, these lesser-known landmarks do not necessarily equate to less entertainment. In fact, I would probably argue that given the know-how you may be surprised by just how fun these activities have the potential to be! 

We have collated London’s most action-packed activities for you! Many of them are outdoor experiences but we’ve also sourced you some weather independent indoor activities as well! The following recommendations are for all brides and grooms who love to seek adrenaline. 

Let’s kick off with a definite highlight and a truly unique experience that is a must for all petrolheads, provided by Drift Limits. 

Drift Limits

What they do

Hypothetically - A show of hands for who loves high octane car chase scenes? (James Bond resides in London no less!) Based at Bovingdon Airfield  - Drift Limits is the only independent owned motorsport company left in the UK. With three unique tracks complete with an abundance of corners and turns, Drift Limits’ unique selling point is that they can design and create completely personalised experiences for the group. From Cops & Robbers, drift experiences and supercars nothing is off-limits - what’s not to love? They even boast the only drivable 2002 EJ12 Jordan F1 Car in the world within their roster!

Great for

The Adrenaline junkies among us - Drift limits is for the Hen and Stag parties interested in pure high octane escapism!

Price point

Due to the high level of personalisation prices strongly vary. They can tailor the day to your budget so it’s best to speak directly to Drift Limits and they are happy to help. Book via email or call for your Hen and Stag party, instead of using the booking system. 

Additional extras

We would recommend booking in advance and quickly, with high demand meaning Drift Limits are usually booked out for up to 3 months in advance. However, they do have a drivers club membership which provides access to a variety of features.

They also come fully equipped with a plethora of merchandise ranging from quality clothing to umbrellas & race suits and offer multiple photography and video packages! You can book the track exclusively for your Hen and Stag party or share the experience with other groups. 

Drift Limits also offer to organise catering for you. They are great with different dietary restrictions such as vegan etc, just let them know what you’re after. Due to the highly personalised experience, your time at Drift Limits can range from 1-2 hours to an all-day event!

Good to know

Drift Limits is a high-end experience and a truly unique activity for any Hen or Stag party.
