Is your bride-to-be more champagne than vodka shots? Is her ideal night something a little more sophisticated than doing the worm on a dancefloor at 3am? Fear not, as there’s plenty of hen party activities that she’ll enjoy and the rest of the group will be impressed with too. In fact, here are our favourite classy hen party ideas for all ages and budgets. You can thank us later for being the ultimate party planner.

  1. Life Drawing

    For a truly memorable hen night before the big day, why not arrange a life drawing session for all the hens? Guaranteed to get a few giggles going, this fun and creative activity also includes a few hen party games to get the atmosphere flowing. Each session lasts for one-and-a-half hours and will see your model get into a few different positions, before inviting the bride-to-be up to get involved in the final shot.

  2. Prosecco Party

    Is there anything more classy than a Prosecco party? Okay, Champagne but stick with us on this one. Put a few hen party decorations up in your accommodation, get the tunes going, stock the fridge with all your favourite nibbles and wait for your private Prosecco van to turn up. There’s even the option to add on a few different drinks packages and you could mix it up with some homemade cocktails too.

  3. Candlelit Yoga

    This activity demands matching yoga sets and bridal themed tops. Spend the hour getting into your inner zen and releasing any pre-wedding nerves. Whether you’re new to the Downward Dog or not, you’re sure to have a great time. Plus, you could even arrange brunch, lunch or a nibbly dinner for afterwards – with bubbles, of course.

  4. Flower Crown Making

    Why spend money on hen party accessories when you can make your own? This creative workshop, which is led by an expert, will talk you through the process, before giving you everything you need to make your very own beautiful headpiece. Plus, you even get to take your creation home with you. This is an ideal activity for those hens who might not know each other well and is a great idea for breaking the ice.

  5. Champagne Afternoon Tea


A hen weekend isn’t complete without indulging in a few savoury bites and sweet treats while washing it down with the good old stuff. If you’re planning a hen party for all ages, this activity should definitely be on your radar. After all, you can at least pretend to your bride’s nana that you’re a little classy. Just hold the burp in…

  1. Cheese Tasting

    Seriously though, whoever invented cheese tasting needs a medal. Get all dolled up and prepare to stuff your face with cheeses from all over the world. You’ll learn how they’re made, what they taste off and the backstory behind each of their ingredients. We wonder if they do party bags…

  2. Fine Wine Tasting

    You know what would go well with cheese tasting? Fine wine tasting. Your sommelier will explain about each of the wines, their tasting notes and food pairings before giving you the chance to try them. It’s a great activity for anyone who likes their vino, and we guarantee one of your hens will claim to taste the difference between a pinot and chardonnay by the end of the night. Liar.

  3. Massage and Facials

    Planning a wedding is hard so why not arrange a day of rest and relaxation for your bestie? Wherever you choose for your hen do destination, there’s likely to be luxury spa days or boutique beauty salons. And if pampering isn’t your thing, you can always wait in the jacuzzi with a glass of fizz putting the world right. Now that’s a classy hen party idea.

  4. Personal Shopping

    Need an outfit for tonight? Perhaps you just want to update your seasonal look? Either way, a personal shopping experience turns a shopping trip into something a little more special. Just don’t forget to book somewhere for a fizzy lunch afterwards. A girl’s got to refuel, right?

  1. Pasta Making

    If your bride is a bit of a foodie, she’ll love this unique pasta making class. From ravioli to tortellini, you’ll create little parcels of pasta before moving onto the filling and sauce. The best bit about it? You get to eat it all afterwards, and you’ll come away with some brand-new skills. Hopefully. 

  1. A Private Dining Experience

    Live like the other half would with a private dining experience from an award-winning chef. Prepare to sit back, be served and taste some incredible food. And did we mention these chefs have cooked for celebrities before?! You’ve basically met J.Lo… Kinda.
