Planning your birthday celebration shouldn’t be time-consuming or stressful, but at the same time definitely not left till the last minute! If you’re super stuck on how to celebrate the big occasion, or just really fancy rinsing it out for the entire week, then our fun birthday ideas in London will have you covered on a vast number of grounds. From something intimate and casual, to literally celebrity-stopping parties, we won’t blame you if you decide to do each one everyday of the week – with a tactful rest on the last day, of course!

Tape London

If you fancy going all out for your birthday and a budget is far from the issue, then Tape London is the top place to be. A club situated in Mayfair, Tape has hosted a plethora of famous names as their guests, such as Rihanna and Drake, so it is definitely far from a cheap do! With the best DJ’s, best VIP packages and, of course, best champagne on offer, Tape is definitely an option for a super fancy birthday celebration.

Ballie Ballerson

Taking things slightly more low-key here, and travelling all the way to Shoreditch in East London, Ballie Ballerson is a great place to have a fun birthday celebration. Mix a neon ball pit with plenty of alcohol, and you’ve got the recipe for an unstoppable evening! If you want to do a midday celebration, then Ballie Ballerson also offer a bottomless brunch with enough pizza and Prosecco to last you until your next birthday, with access to the ever so famous ball pit, of course! We think this definitely deserves to take the cake for fun birthday ideas in London.

The Shard

The Shard is another great venue to host your celebrations, because not only does it have an incredible choice of restaurants and bars for you to pick from, the skyline views of the capital from the tallest building in the UK is unbeatable! With a hotel, a Peter Pan themed afternoon tea room, and the famous Duck and Waffle restaurant (which is perched at the top and open 24 hours a day, by the way), the Shard is a once-stop venue for your best ever birthday celebrations.

Grab your friends for a round of mini-golf, and we can assure you that you will see a competitive side you never knew existed! There are plenty of venue dotted around London, such as Swingers, Plonk and Junkyard, all of which offer plenty of booze, of course. Not only is it a fun birthday idea to check out when you’re in London, but also reasonably priced, as a lot of courses offer group booking deals with food, drink and entry packages.

Rooftop cinema

If you fancy having a more intimate birthday celebration in London, then rooftop cinemas should definitely be at the top of your list. With a skyline view of the city whilst watching your favourite classics on a huge screen, the capital truly knows how to give you a one of a kind birthday experience! Many outdoor cinemas are closed for the Winter, sorry for all our Christmas babies out there, but there’s no rule to say that you can carry on the celebrations into the next year…

Natural History Museum sleepover

Now there’s no rule to say that sleepovers had to end when we were young, but how lost has it actually been since you’ve had one? And we can guarantee it’s probably never been in the Natural History Museum either! You’ll be treated to a three-course dinner, alongside a pub quiz, stand-up comedy shows, and an all-night monster movie marathon, plus even a yoga session to start the morning off! Now if that’s not a fun birthday celebration, we don’t know what is.
