If you’d prefer a chilled weekend that you can take at your own pace, then you should book to stay in Seascape, our hen house. Visit the famous pebble beach, take a wander round the lanes and then head back to your hotel or to the house where you can cook dinner together and have a glass (or two) of vino!
The Capital of the UK hosts an impressive range of bars, pubs and clubs alongside its famous landmarks and shopping hotspots making it a favourite hen do location. If you’d like to come home from your hen weekend with a new skill, then why not try a cocktail making class or a dance experience? From afternoon tea to Adonis Cabaret – London really has something for everyone.
If you’d love a hen weekend that’s lively and a little different – head west! Bristol is brimming with fantastic hen activities for the whole group to enjoy. Satisfy your sweet tooth at a chocolate making class or if gin’s your thing, book a gin tasting experience. If you’d prefer to get active (and be in hysterics) then you need to try out a West Country Themed Games Day!
This historic city is super picturesque with its backdrop of castles and cathedrals – excellent for getting that perfect Instagram shot. Whilst you’re in York, why not take the opportunity to dress up and spend the day at the races? We could also organise for you and the girls to go on an evening boat cruise. Sip on a glass of prosecco as you take in the riverside sights or strut your stuff as the DJ plays some great tracks.
If you’re searching for a destination that offers a wide range of activities and great nightlife, visit the vibrant capital of Wales! Fill your lungs with fresh Welsh air as you race against your girls on quad bikes or get extra adventurous and try white-water rafting. If you fancy something a little tamer but still active, then an 80’s dance experience could be perfect for you! Guaranteed giggles with your girls. There are various restaurants, bars and clubs to venture out to in the evening too.
Nottingham is a great choice of location for your hen weekend because it’s so versatile. If you’d love an active, adrenaline-induced weekend then you should book Jungle Combo! Or if a weekend of pampering and partying sounds more up your street, then Nottingham is perfect for that too. What’s even better, you could book to stay in one of our Nottingham hen houses that are located only a short distance from the buzzing city centre.
If you’re thinking of venturing outside of the UK for some sun, sea and sangria then how about considering Barcelona? You’ll be absolutely spoiled for choice when deciding what to do! Feel free to hit the beach and soak up the sun or visit the tourist hotspots. To really make the most of your trip, you can book a range of fun activities with Hen Heaven to suit your whole group. How does wine tasting sound? Or opt to spend the day on a catamaran with your favourite girls. If you’re hoping to dance the night away, then we can certainly arrange that too as Barcelona has great nightlife.
