Whether your hen do group has mixed ages, needs to keep the budget low or you’re planning for a bride with a particular passion (e.g. fitness or travel), these hen party ideas will have you covered.

How to choose the right hen do activity

If you’re stuck trying to decide which hen party activities to book, then ask yourself these questions to find the perfect answer:

  • What are the bride’s passions or interests?
    When you’re stuck for inspiration, thinking about who the bride is and the types of activities and interests she makes time for in her life can help. Is she fitness-focused or outdoorsy? Is she crafty? Does she love a party or a drink (or 3)?
  • How many people will be in your hen party group?
    If you have 4 girls or 40, then different activities are going to suit. For example, you might struggle to fit around a bar for a cocktail class if you have 30 people but you might choose a treasure hunt or paintball where playing in teams or going solo helps break up the numbers.
  • What would be accessible and convenient for everyone?
    Opting for a location that’s easily accessible for all group members ensures participation without hassle. And choosing an activity that everyone is physically able to participate in will make sure no one is excluded. For example, will you have elderly, disabled or pregnant group members?
  • What’s the budget per person?
    Understanding the budget helps narrow down options and avoids overshooting costs.
  • What would suit the group’s energy levels?
    Choosing an activity that aligns with the group’s energy level ensures everyone enjoys the experience. If the bride-to-be is a big party girl and she wants a jam-packed weekend of activities and late nights, just make sure to choose some items that will also give more laid back members of the group a break.
  • Would you prefer it to be something new and exciting?
    Some hen parties are all the same and it can mean girls don’t look forward to it as much or remember it as well in years to come. Choosing a unique experience adds an element of surprise and novelty to the celebration and makes sure the hen do you plan stands out! Try to pick something you think no one will have done before or involve some DIY elements to put a personalised spin on your event.
  • What would encourage interaction and bonding?
    Selecting a hen do activity that encourages group interaction, fosters a fun and makes sure the whole experience is memorable.
  • What would create lasting memories for the bride?
    Prioritising an activity that guarantees memorable moments ensures a cherished celebration for the bride-to-be. You could take candid snaps throughout the activity to make a memory book for her or make something in a crafty hen activity to give her as a keepsake to take away.


Budget but brilliant

The hen do is all about spoiling and celebrating the bride-to-be. You’d be surprised how quickly all that spoiling adds up in cost, though. If you need to keep the hen party budget down but still want to help make the bride feel special, it’s easier than you think:

  • The free option: Organising a hen night in your home or accommodation where you share a meal, play some funny hen party games and maybe even learn to make your own cocktails is a really intimate way to celebrate with the bride and have fun with the whole group.
  • The cheaper at-home option: To keep the cost down, you could book an activity to come to your home or accommodation. Some of the most popular options would be a buff butler or two, a murder mystery dinner, the cube, draw a nude class, lip sync battle or flower crown workshop.
  • The not-too-expensive activity option: If you’re keen to get out of the house for your hen party activities, then you could just choose one of the cheaper options like escape rooms, cocktail classes, a booze cruise or maybe a dance class.

Hen party activity FAQs

We think booking hen party activities makes the whole event more exciting and it’s an opportunity to try something you’ve never done before. However, booking an activity isn’t a necessity for a fun hen do. You could book a self-catering house, make homemade meals and play some heartfelt or hilarious hen do games at home for a really relaxed weekend.

  • Talk with the bride: Make sure you get her ideas, preferences and absolute no-nos before you go and book anything.
  • Make it appropriate to the group: If you have younger, older, pregnant or disabled group members, then make sure you choose activities that everyone can take part in.
  • Consider distance: If you’ve decided where you’re going to stay for your hen weekend, then make sure you choose activities that you can easily travel to and from. Decide if you’ll need to hire a bus, get taxis, drive your own cars, walk down the street or have them come to you.
  • Keep to your theme or style: If you’ve chosen a hen party theme or you’re trying to keep the event to a particular style (e.g. classy, outdoorsy), then make sure the activity works well with that idea.
  • Consider the venue: Some activities can come to you, other activities you go to them. Some activities have a venue provided by the supplier and other activities require you to organise a venue. Make sure to read each activity’s detailed description to make sure it suits your location and plans.
  • Remember minimum numbers: Some activities require a minimum group size to book them. Make sure you check this detail before committing to a particular option.

The number of activities you plan depends on how many days the hen do goes for.

  • 1 night hen parties: We recommend 1 day activity and 1 evening/night activity. 
  • 2 night hen parties: We recommend 1 day activity per day (2 total) and 1 night activity per evening (2 total).

You can book more than this but just make sure you spread them throughout the day so you’re not rushing around! 

You should start planning the hen party at least 3-6 months before the trip date. If you’re not sure which activities you’d like yet, you can just secure your accommodation first and then add one or more hen do activities to your booking later.

We will always do our best to try and help you book in the activities you’d like, even if it’s last-minute though!

Hen party group politics can definitely be a challenge – we’re sorry if this is happening to you.

Ultimately, this event is about the bride-to-be. So, if your group have tried to discuss which hen party activities they’d like and can’t agree, then we’d recommend going back to the source of all truth. Talk to the bride and hint at a few of the different ideas (without all the details) and ask her which ones feel right. No one can argue with that!
