Top Hen Party Activities In The UK

The traditional hen party is supposed to be something which the bride-to-be would enjoy, but also something which might have a shade of embarrassment for them as well as the whole group. It’s about having fun, letting your hair down and spending time with the friends and family you’re closest to in life.

To give you some ideas for what activities there are available across the UK we’ve come up with a hen party activity list.

Cocktail Making

Most hen parties will involve going for drinks at some point, so why not spend some time making your own? Cocktail making classes will allow you to try your hand at all of that impressive shaken, not stirred, action. You can test out your own cocktail concoctions in a number of locations across the UK, but why not try it out in York, taking in the quaint and elegant shopping and scenery before the cocktail class.

White Water Rafting

If you like your activities to be a little more exciting, and if everyone in your group is up for the thrill of it, canoeing and kayaking could be for you. You don’t have to have any experience – the whole point is that you’ll end up wet and exhausted, but it will be one hell of a ride. You can do this in a lot of exotic locations but right here in the UK you can do it in Chester.

Dance Lessons

Regardless of whether you can already dance or not, dance lessons get everyone up and involved. There are so many different styles of dancing to choose from and you might even want to create a routine for you and your hen party to show off at your wedding day celebrations.

Nude Drawing

Looking for something less exhausting but with a cheeky thrill? Nude drawing should do the trick. You’ll get to take on a still life drawing but with a modern twist on the classic male stripper – which has become the outdated tradition. Drinks, laughs and some good old fashioned nudity can all be found with nude drawing classes in London.


Archery might not seem like the most exciting thing to do on a hen do but with the rise in popular bow and arrow wielding characters such as Katniss Everdeen and Green Arrow have meant more people are showing an interest than ever. You don’t need to be an olympic athlete to take part either, pick up a bow and have a go.

It’s a Knockout

Should you have plenty of people who want to take part in hen activities then you could opt for a more all-inclusive It’s A Knockout competition. A wacky, wet and fun-filled way to spend the day with your group, laughs are guaranteed on the road to finding out who is the best at taking on crazy challenges. This is something available across the UK so simply find the one nearest to you and book your party in.
