Glasgow might have a reputation as a slightly rough and ready city, and we’re not disputing that it may have been true in the past. That’s changed in recent years though, as the city has rebuilt itself from a bleak and industrial city in to a centre of creativity and culture. It’s now got one of the largest selections of activities in the UK, with over 50 Glasgow hen activity ideas possible. There are dozens of dancing lessons, motoring sessions, and pampering days to enjoy, and the options extend far beyond the city borders with plenty of different ways to see the Scottish countryside too, from water sports to shooting sessions. Whatever your hen likes doing, and however she wants to spend her day, she’ll be able to give it a go in Glasgow.

Arty hen activities are taking off all over the country, and Glasgow is no exception. It’s no surprise – there are plenty of benefits to getting out the sequins and glitter. All the girls can take part, regardless of age or physical ability, and it’s a great way to get to spend a little time catching up and chatting with the group – go karting may be fun, but it’s not usually a great activity if you’d like to keep a conversation going. Plus, with our creative Glasgow hen activities, there’s a lot more options than just starting a knitting circle. Perfume making is an unusual choice, giving you and the girls the chance to create your own perfume – you know, just like every A-lister ever. It’s also a cute memento, reminding you of the day every time you spray it on. Alternately, a session in the recording studio could potentially leave you with a souvenir you never want to see, hear, or think about again – or you and the girls could sound like angels, and use it to jump start your own Supremes, Spice Girls, or Girls Aloud career (dibs not Ginger). If you’re looking for a slightly cheeky session, life drawing is quickly becoming one of the most popular hen activities… how else can you ogle a naked man midday?
Hey, a girl’s gotta eat – and since you and the ladies are likely going to need to sit down for a good meal at some point, it’s worth making sure that it is a good meal, filling you up whilst keeping you entertained. Afternoon tea is the ultimate afternoon treat, sitting down for a dainty, elegant lunch of sandwiches, pastries, and whole lot of tea (or champagne, if you’re feeling particularly fancy). If you’d rather something a little bit more substantial, pizza making is a great Glasgow hen idea either as a long lunch, or to help you transition between afternoon and evening – as well as lining your stomach thoroughly for the night ahead. And when darkness does descend, you and the girls can keep the foodie theme going with a vodka tasting session. Alright, it’s not exactly filling – but with flavours like chocolate, chilli and coffee to try, it is tasty.
Glasgow is proud Scottish city, and any hen group there should reflect its incredible heritage, whether you’re a bunch of native lasses or you’ve travelled up from down south. We’re not suggesting you need to grab a kilt, eat a haggis, or spontaneously speak with an impenetrable accent, but there are plenty of other ways to celebrate the culture with some Glasgow hen activities. Scotland is famed for its whisky, so a distillery tour is an excellent way to gain some local – uh, flavour. It’s also going to make the lads back home very jealous, so it’s a win all around… and that’s not even mentioning the free samples (as well as all the learning and experience and that stuff too). If you’re not ones for Scotch (or would rather clear your heads after sampling one too many glasses), a Highland Games session is muddy, energetic, and absolutely hilarious – the girls will be able to be enjoy a bit of friendly (hopefully) competition with caber tossing and welly hurling, in true Scottish style.
