What are Popular Hen Party Activities?


Activities are a central part of any hen party. The right activities are key to getting your friends to bond and create unforgettable moments for that perfect hen party experience. From the classics to the adventurous, finding the perfect activity to suit the bride-to-be and her friends can be challenging. Here are a few popular options, but please do look at our alternative and countryside hen party blogs for further inspiration.


Cocktail Making Class

Shake up the party with a cocktail-making class. Personalise this experience even more for the bride-to-be if they have a love of Gin or want to explore alcohol-free versions. This can be tailored to your budget, learning the art of mixology from a professional bartender to creating your own DIY version. A great way to bond and create delicious concoctions with friends.


Spa and Pampering Day

Hen parties love to relax and feel rejuvenated. Enjoy massages, facials, manicures and other blissful treatments in either a luxury spa or your own home. It’s the perfect opportunity to unwind, de-stress and bond with the girls.


Outdoor Adventures

If you have a bride who likes thrills and excitement, there are plenty of outdoor pursuits that can provide an adrenaline-pumping experience and something that your hen party will not forget. You could try paintball, abseiling, gorge scrambling, Hunted or kayaking, to name but a few. The UK has some great playgrounds for the more adventurous hen party team.


Wine Tasting or a Distillery Visit

If you have an elegant and sophisticated bride, why not raise a glass in style to celebrate? Vineyard and distillery tours are a great way to spend time as a group and learn about the processes involved in making your drink of choice, as well as expand your knowledge of different flavours and pairings.


Afternoon Tea

A traditional and delightful way to spend a refined afternoon with friends. Really go for it with a gourmet experience, choose a wonderful venue, or use it as a chance to relax following a morning of activities. Afternoon tea works well as a standalone option or combined with others. If you have a foodie-loving bride-to-be, consider other food options like cooking classes or food experiences.


Escape Rooms

Work together as a team to solve puzzles, decipher clues, and escape within a set time limit. Unleash your inner detective and immerse yourselves in this thrilling activity that promotes teamwork and guarantees an exciting and unforgettable experience.


Comedy Club or Cabaret Show

Laugh the night away and delight in an evening of laughter at a comedy club or by a dazzling cabaret show. Sit back, relax and enjoy the live performances while celebrating with the bride-to-be and friends. It’s an entertaining and lively activity that promises a night filled with amusement.


Karaoke Nights

Sing and dance like nobody’s watching. Unleash your inner diva and hit the stage for a karaoke night. Sing your favourite tunes, dance with your friends and let the music take over. Whether you’re a natural performer or just looking for light-hearted fun, karaoke is a surefire way to create laughter and memories.
