Trying to come up with a unique and exciting idea for your Hen party is not an easy task. So many ideas have already been done and if you are inviting a wide mix of people then it can tricky to find an activity that caters to everyone’s tastes. You may have different ages, faith groups, drinkers and non-drinkers in your guest list so try thinking outside the box and maybe consider some of these ideas:
Afternoon Tea – if you have a bunch of friends who hate the thought of the traditional pub crawl, then why not try a gentler, more sophisticated occasion. There are loads of deals for scrumptious tea dates with dainty sandwiches and cakes of all description. Maybe include as part of a Spa retreat for a truly pampering break.
Instead of a bar crawl, how about a chocolate crawl? Yes this is now a bona fide activity that you can indulge in around London. Visit lots of little boutiques and test out their truffles before heading off to find the next one. A must-do event for all you chocoholics out there.
Take a glamping break and do your own thing out in the wild. Take your mates and get away from it all by staying in a luxury yurt or safari tent. Experience all the pleasures of the countryside but without the discomfort of sleeping in a tent. You and your girlies could even indulge in some bushcraft activities and discover your inner survivalist.
Talking of survival, how about a hen party with a real twist. Go head to head in a paintball battle with a difference. Experience a Tank Driving Day and learn to command one of the military’s toughest war machines. You’re nobody’s ‘little lady’ while you tear across fields and point your turret at the enemy!
Cinemas can be hired out for private viewings so for a more sedate party you might consider grabbing the popcorn and settling down with your pals to enjoy some classic movies of your choice.
If you enjoy being creative and using your hands then why not book a cooking class for your group or a cake baking course. Cooking shows are all the rage and you could hold your very own Great British Bake Off with your besties. If art is more your scene, then book a session to attend a Life Drawing class. Unleash your inner artist and have a giggle with your mates taking part in an activity that’s a lot more original and sophisticated than hiring a stripper!
