When it comes to hen party activities in Bristol, there’s plenty to choose from here. Head into the countryside and adventure into the hills, take a hot air balloon over the city and breath in that fresh air, unleash a little creativity in one of the many craft classes or take some time out and enjoy afternoon tea and a spa day at one of the city centre’s luxury hotels. Alternatively, get your brain ticking in an escape room experience, take it back a few years with a hilarious school sports day adventure or get all glammed up for a three course meal in an award-winning establishment. Of course, a trip to Cabot Circus for a new outfit is a must!

With a colourful events calendar too, there’s always something going on in Bristol. Whether that be music related, a local food festival, a show at the local comedy club or another appearance from Banksy. Situated in the South West of England, it really does have the best of both worlds when it comes to hen dos so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the top choices for a UK hen party. In fact, we guarantee that you’ll find something for everyone here. 

Yoga and Brunch

Revitalise and nourish your body and soul with a yoga hen party session tailored to your hens, then enjoy your state of bliss with a delicious brunch. This isn’t just any old brunch though.

Adorned with grazing platters, hot breads, fruits, meats and pastries – as well as a few bottles of the good old stuff – you have all the time in the world to catch up, discuss the wedding and feast on the best brunch platters in the city – which can be catered for vegetarian and vegan hens too.

Yoga Disco

You might have tried traditional yoga… but wait until you’ve tried a yoga class alongside your favourite disco tunes.

You see, in this yoga hen party, our glamorous and fun yoga expert Helen will lead a truly fabulous experience where you get to flow, dance and have fun with your besties while listening to the greatest party tunes. All you need to do is pile on the glitter until you sparkle like a mirrored ball, don your sequins and spandex if you fancy it and bring all your friends together to bend and stretch in time with a glorious mix of disco music.

Champagne Picnic 

Don your hiking boots and take a trip to the rolling hills near Bristol where your group will meet with your local walking guide. Take a short stroll along a meandering river before stopping with your crew for elevenses of freshly brewed coffee, tea and cake.

Fuelled for the day, you’ll be ready to take on the hills to reach one of the best views in the south west, and your lunch stop – a picnic feast beautifully prepared by the team’s resident chef. Once you’ve had your fill, your guide will lead the way back to the start of the loop where they will point you in the direction of the best local pubs.

Waterfalls and Wild Swimming

Your host Syreeta will greet you in Bristol, before taking you on an adventure into Bristol’s best-kept secrets. Think incredible waterfalls, ancient forests and wild rivers. Not only will you get to explore the great outdoors but you’ll also feast on lobster and Prosecco, cooked on hot coals.

With tummy’s full, you’ll be led through a 5-mile walk that includes a pitstop for gin and cake. That’s not all as there’s also an opportunity to go wild swimming in a lagoon, with the largest fall cascading in the background.

Cocktail masterclass

Dip into the world of exquisite cocktail making, shaking and stirring over the course of two hours. Led by an expert mixologist – the dream job – this hen party cocktail making class will give you everything you need to make great cocktails. Not just that but you’ll also learn some tricks of the trade, discover the history of cocktails and have a great time too.

Flower crown making

Want something to take home from your hen weekend in Bristol? Sure, you’ve already got that guy’s number from last night – but this memory should last a little longer. With a flower crown workshop, you get to make your very own floral headpiece from gorgeous foliage, ribbons, accessories and more. This is definitely worth an Instagram pic. 

Life drawing

Looking for a classy hen party activity? A life drawing class in Bristol is just the thing. Your private session will begin with a few drinking games to get the party started before your personal model gets into position.

There’s even an option to get your bride-to-be involved and you might just walk away with a few new drawing skills. See, a hen do in Bristol is practically educational.

Dance class

Okay so you might not have the Single Ladies dance routine nailed but God loves a tryer, right?! A themed dance class in Bristol is not only a fun way to let your hair down but also great at unleashing a little healthy competition. Get all the girls in the middle, have a dance off and the loser buys the next round of shots. 

Boat cruise

Just picture it now. The sun’s basking on your shoulders, the coolbox is filled with chilled Prosecco, and you’ve got all your hens on a private rented boat. Okay, it might not be Marbella. But who needs that when you’re on a boat cruise down Bristol Harbourside?!

Don’t worry if you spot a bar or restaurant you like the look of too. If you ask nicely, the Captain is sure to stop…
