Prices are based on low season rates.
Is the bride to be a vintage enthusiast? If so, she and the rest of the girls will enjoy rocking a glamorous and striking look during the hen weekend with an incredible vintage make-over session which will have you all looking like vibrant starlets from the past! But that’s not all, because we’ll be sending you and your lovely ladies off to enjoy some sophisticated afternoon tea, where you’ll be able to get stuck into an indulgent range of delicate sandwiches and delectable cakes.
Finally, there’s also an exciting burlesque class within this great package too, where you’ll learn the sultry art of burlesque dancing – it’s great fun and the perfect activity for all you girls who have always wanted to have a go! There will also be two nights’ accommodation at a city hotel thrown into this little bundle of joy too, so you and the girls really will be sorted for the weekend!
2 nights accommodation
The Holiday Inn Express City Centre is a budget Bristol hotel that’s a cut above the rest. Expect air-conditioned bedrooms, power showers and an impressive wine list in the bar. Plush beds and a delicious breakfast will help you and the girls to recover after a night on the town, with LCD TVs and pizza available for some serious lounge time. The menu at The Spot Kitchen and Bar ranges offers tempting dishes like Creole chicken and twisted Caesar salad as well as large starters to share, like half a pound of chicken wings. Bristol Temple Meads is just across the road, so we recommend staying here if you and the girls are travelling in by train.
This is a brilliant location for exploring the city’s nightlife, so head west across the Floating Harbour to find King Street. This 17th-century cobbled walkway has a fun, social vibe and is the perfect spot to get the party started. If cocktails are your thing, take a ten-minute stroll up to Milk Thistle, a really special bar hidden in a beautiful historic building on Colston Avenue. When it’s time to hit the dance floor, the hotel is a ten-minute walk from Motion, a spectacular club in a maze of warehouse spaces that spills out onto the harbour’s edge.

Vintage Make-Up & Hairstyling
Immerse yourselves back to Hollywood’s golden age, where icons such as Audrey Hepburn filled the big screen, and their elegant glamour and style simply oozed the upmost sophistication. Why not recreate those classic looks for the hen party to Bristol with our excellent powder and pin curl package? With this one, we’ll arrange for you and the girls to make your way to a great venue, where the hen will enjoy full vintage inspired make-up and hairstyling, whilst the rest of the group will receive application of eye, cheek and lip make up, in addition to victory rolls in their hair.
It’s the perfect treat for you and the girls and will make for some great photos, which you’ll then be able to upload to Facebook and Instagram to make everyone back home suitably jealous! For those girls getting basic make up, don’t forget to come wearing a foundation base, and make sure that you bring along some relevant attire with you; we’re talking red and white polka dot swing dresses that nip in at the waist, or perhaps you’d rather go for a tea dress? Whatever you wear, we know that you’ll all look stunning!
