Are you looking for ideas for your upcoming hen do? Or have you been tasked with planning your best friend’s last hurrah?
Fear not! Although planning a day that everyone will love can seem like a daunting task, there are so many options open to you whether it’s a spa weekend, an adrenaline-fueled zip wire adventure or relaxing afternoon tea, there’s an activity out there that everyone will enjoy. I have compiled a list of some hen party ideas to get you started below.
A day at the races
If you want to try something different then why not consider a day at the races. Lady’s Day at Ascot would be the perfect occasion to enjoy a hen do. Half the fun is in getting ready so why not start the day getting ready together and into the spirit of the event, then head to the track where you can enjoy a drink or two and a flutter on the horses.
What could be better than a day of rest, relaxation and beauty treatments with your best friends? Relaxing spa days is a great choice and something everyone will enjoy, it will also be a lovely way for the bride to be to lead up to her big day.
If you like the sound of a spa day and a few treatments then Champneys Health Spa is a great choice, they are renowned for their luxurious surroundings, relaxing environment and their great range of treatments. You can choose from spa days, spa evenings or even spa boot camp which means there’s something to suit every occasion.
If you’re looking for an idea which can be enjoyed by all ages then why not consider afternoon tea. Afternoon tea takes place in lovely surroundings such as manor homes which gives you the perfect setting for a lovely afternoon where your hen party can sit back, relax and enjoy some delicious tea and cakes. It’s a great choice if you want to include young children in the event or turn it into a family day.
If you fancy something a little more laid back than a night on the town why not arrange a wine tasting evening. There are hundreds of locations throughout the UK where you can arrange an evening of sampling wines from all over the world.
If you want to go all out why not arrange a wine tasting evening at home and lay on a lovely spread of cheese, olives and bread to go with the wine. You could even buy props to create a wine tasting party on a budget. An evening at home isn’t for everyone but it will create a really personal experience where everyone feels relaxed and comfortable.
An evening at the theatre
If you want to enjoy a sophisticated evening why not take a trip to your local theatre for an evening of entertainment. You could go all out and book a trip to the West End to enjoy a memorable evening watching a show, it’s an amazing atmosphere and something everyone would remember for a long time to come.
For something a little different and to test your problem-solving skills in a fun and exciting environment why not book an escape room experience. Escape rooms are hugely popular and they offer the perfect opportunity for some fun bonding with your friends, it’s a great group event. You can choose from lots of different experiences and difficulty levels, you could even turn it into a friendly competition and try the room in teams to see who can escape in the quickest time.
If adrenaline-fueled adventure is something you think everyone will enjoy then look no further than a day of zip line adventure. There are many different places you can enjoy a day in the treetops, one of the most popular choices is Zipworld in Wales which is home to the fastest zip line in the World and the longest in Europe – sure to get your pulse racing. There are also other great activities at Zipworld including Caverns (underground trampolines), Fforest Coaster, Skyride and much more.
Whether you’re looking for ideas for your own hen do, or you’re planning your friend’s party, the suggestions above should hopefully give you some inspiration and help you plan the perfect party.
