If you’re a bride planning your own hen party or a stressed friend doing the organising we have some amazing hen party ideas for you! We've labeled them for the type of hen, outdoorsy to party to not so hen we got you covered.

The Vätten Hüs Luxury boat stay city centre Manchester! Perfect for the luxury hen.

City escape on a boat! Don’t worry it’s hugely spacious and there’s no tide so no risk of being seasick we promise!

The entire boat is for private hire and the location is just amazing! It’s the perfect blend of city lights and the tranquil city finds. Everything you’ll need, can be found on your boat doorstep, incredible bars, restaurants and nightlife ready to explore but with the peaceful moor in Castlefields.

Beautifully crafted wide beam canal boat, boasting 70ft in size, with a spacious layout sleeping up to 6 guests. Two plush king-sized bedrooms, with additional sleeping in the main collective area. The boat has a large open kitchen dining, designed for partying and celebrating – we’re thinking cocktail class!

They also offer party packages. Making it a stress-free booking experience (Your organisers will be pleased!)

Includes: A night stay on the luxury canal boat, Prosecco and Grazing Table reception, personalised name decorations and balloons, a 2 hour cocktail class with a personal bartender, followed by cupcakes for the morning after.

Places to dine out Manchester:

Menagerie Restaurant on a Friday and Saturday have a fantastic show whilst you dine.

Tattu Manchester is known for its incredible food and amazing atmosphere.

The Ivy Roof Garden is beautiful perfect for drinks or dining.

Garden Tipi Party! ‘There ain’t no party like a tipi party’ Perfect for the home bird hen.

If venturing away isn’t an option or for the hen’s who would rather stay a little more local.

We can set up in your garden or work with you to find a venue! Tipis are perfect for you to have total control and design for your day.

We’re thinking festival themed tipi parties!

We have amazing garden party packages within our tipis, the perfect canvas for your day! We can provide the finishing touches from fire-pits to cosy furnishings.

There are two popular sizes – the Chill-Out Tipi perfect for intimate garden parties.

Giant Hat Tipi – massively popular for bigger garden parties! The Giant Hat tipi gives you lots of space and movement perfect if you’re also wanting a dance-floor!

Glamping at Meadow View - Nottingham Perfect for the outdoor hen.

Posh glamping pods! These are great if you have a big hen group as there are lots of pods on site. Trust us the pictures do not do this place justice! They are modern, spotless, warm and cosy! We fully recommend for the outdoorsy type bride!

We recommend booking for two nights!

Making the most of the cosy fire-pit hut and having a BBQ followed by a silent disco on the evening – by Silent Disco Direct and the second evening a night out in the city! With lots of beautiful bars and restaurants, you’ll have a great time.

It’s a Knock Out – The most fun outdoor activity!! Inflatable obstacle course challenges - great for big groups too. We promise you'll be crying with laughter.

Newcastle Perfect for the party hen.

Known for its nightlife Newcastle is a fantastic city for a hen party. Here are some ideas to make the party extra special.

You can book a ring or bracelet making experience at the Glamorous Owl. The class is great and lots of fun, you all get to take your jewellery creation home.

Private hire at Horticulture – a fantastic bar restaurant which is known for its espresso martinis – boasting of 150 different martinis to try on their menu! You can book a table or they have an incredible rooftop space available for private hire with their incredible food and nibbles.

Ghost tour – yes we thought we’d throw this on in. Newcastle Ghost Tour Walks. Something a little different! Tour under the city on a ghost hunt. It’s a hen party to remember.

Edinburgh Such a beautiful city! Perfect for the culture hen.

Edinburgh is plenty of fantastic secret Speakeasy bars. Bars with secret entrances, hosting out of the ordinary cocktails. Our favourites are Panda & Sons and the Never Really Here Liquor Lounge.

Activity wise you have your classic Edinburgh ghosts tours or the castle but for us Camera Obscura is a must! It’s loads of fun and interactive, it’s a good way to start the day before heading onto the drinks!

LEEDS Perfect for the something a little different hen.

You’ll find incredible Airbnb’s in Leeds, big manor houses are perfect for hen parties. We recommend hiring The Yorkshire Bartender for a cocktail class at your accommodation followed by a Magic Mike show.

Rural House Retreat Perfect for the not so hen- hen.

If parties aren’t your thing – don’t worry we have a wonderful escape just for you!

Rural House Retreat is a beautiful manor house in the countryside just a stone’s throw away from Morpeth. We’re thinking sleep over night in, some prosecco and perhaps a private chef! Dreamy!

We just love this line-up! There's something for everyone and they're all great for a weekend or weekday away.
