Five Best Winter Activities


The nights are drawing in and it's getting colder, that means one thing - winter is on its way ladies! The cold and wetter weather can really put a dampener on plans, especially when it comes to planning a hen party.

Fortunately for you girls, here at Hen Weekends we cater for hen parties come rain or shine so have a wide range of activities to choose from that are suitable for the winter months. We have picked out five of our most popular indoor hen do activities to give you a flavour of what you could choose!


Cocktail Making


Who doesn't love a cocktail? Nothing says style and sophistication like sipping a Pornstar Martini from a coupe glass! Well, why not go one step further and have an afternoon of cocktail making with the girls on your hen weekend?

A fully qualified mixologist will show you all the moves and best techniques for making all of your favourite cocktails. By the end of the afternoon you will be familiar with all of the ingredients and know which cocktails are served in what glasses.

This is the perfect way to do something a little different with the girls, whilst having loads of fun - and getting a little tipsy! There'll be loads of photo and video opportunities as you see who has got the cocktail shake down to a tee!


Pop Star Video


Have you and the girls ever fancied yourselves as the next Beyonce or Rihanna? Here is your opportunity! Strut your stuff and channel your inner diva with a pop star video recording session on your hen party!

Pick a song that you and the girls all love and first of all you will record your vocals. Don't worry, if your voice isn't hitting those high notes, the sound engineer will be able to work their magic on them! Then it's time to put together your video, choreograph your moves with some fun props and you will also learn how to lip sync like the stars!

You are pop stars for the day, so everything will be recorded for you as the cameras follow you around the studio. The footage will be great to look back and laugh at! After a busy day busting shapes, you will be ready to party like the celebs do!


Spa day


When it comes to fighting the elements, there's no safer haven than a relaxing spa day! Rid your mind and body of all those pre-wedding stresses with some much deserved luxury treatment.

Spa days remain one of the most popular ways for hens to spend an afternoon, and it's the perfect way to prepare before a night on the tiles! Pick your perfect package from a selection of classic spa treatments; whether you're after a deep tissue massage or cleansing facial, there's something for everyone.

Our carefully selected spa locations are modern and centrally located to our destinations; with attentive and caring staff. Escape for the day, chill out with the girls and be treated like the princesses you are - we are certain you will love it.


Strictly Come Dancing


If your group of ladies loves to dance, then why not book a dance class inspired by the BBC TV series Strictly Come Dancing? Fear not, you won't have to worry about Craig Revel Horwood giving you a low score and criticising your routine - this is all about having fun!

Classes will vary dependent on your chosen location, but one thing's for sure - you can expect to learn the moves from famous dances like the Paso Doble and Tango.

Be sure that the bride takes a lead role and you get plenty of photos and videos to look back at later on! She might even take some tips for the first dance at the wedding; and if you want to make it competitive, why not split the group in half and have a dance off?


Afternoon tea


Can you think of anything more awfully British to do on your hen weekend, ladies? Live the high life in delightful surroundings as easy-on-the-eye waiters serve you for the afternoon. This is a fantastic way to spend some time with the girlies catching up before the mayhem of the night out!

Afternoon tea provides a wonderful alternative to a meal out as you are presented with forbidden delights; such as cakes that would have Mary Berry salivating! Wash it all down with some proper English tea or bubbly as you look forward to a night out with your besties!
