Oxford's class, charisma, and sophistication has attracted visitors from around the UK for centuries. It's one of the most cultured and dignified cities in the country, and there's a host of relaxing and refined pastimes for a ladylike hen group to enjoy - or a bunch of laddettes who fancy doing something a bit different for their hen activities. The generous student population means that there are plenty of energetic, exciting Oxford hen activities going on too, to add a bit of spice to the proceedings! GoHen can provide a huge range of Oxford hen ideas to help you get the most out of your stay, from sexy salsa dancing to soothing Swedish saunas!
It's the perfect time to lay back and relax with your girlfriends, and Oxford is a fantastic city to live a life of leisure in! Book all the girls in for a pampering day for access to splash pools, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a half hour treatment for each hen - perfect! And it's sure to be a hit with the bride, giving her the opportunity to relax before the big day - exactly what hen dos are all about. A great way to loosen up a little further is with a decadent wine tasting experience. Whether or not it will enhance your palette is debatable, but you can be certain that it's a fun, interactive session that's guaranteed to get the girls talking - and not just because of the alcohol! And because you can't really unwind with a little fresh air to clear away the cobwebs, why not get the girls on the green playing a round of golf? It's as leisurely as you can get while still technically calling it a sport, and it's a great Sunday morning activity before you all head home.
If you'd rather get your toes tapping than get your toenails painted, our Oxford hen ideas includes literally dozens of dancing options for you and the girls to try. A pole dancing class is increasingly popular with hens of all ages, and isn't as intimidating as it sounds! It's a real laugh for everyone involved, as well as a great workout, and who knows - you might master some seductive skills too! If you'd rather something a little more traditional, Strictly Come Dancing sessions give you the chance to try out some fancy footwork, as well as pick up some moves to take back to the wedding reception with you. A Back to the 80's dance class is great for hens who don't take dancing too seriously, and Girls (that) Just Wanna Have Fun! Dust off your leg warmers and leotards, because this session is huge fun for hen parties!
Creative hen activities are becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why - they're easy for everyone to do, there's a huge range of options available, and they're bucket loads of fun! And since you often end up taking your creations home with you, it's a wonderful way to remember your Oxford hen activities and the great time you had in years to come! Try a go in a recording studio for something different from a typical arts and crafts session. Whether you sound like world-class belters or cat-stranglers doesn't matter, it's always hilarious, and you get a CD of your warblings as a memento of the weekend. For something a little more sophisticated, why not book a life drawing session? It's the most tasteful way you're going to get to ogle a naked man - it's all in the name of art! And for a straight up tasty time, why not go for a pizza making session? Everyone knows the best creations are the ones you can eat afterwards!
As such a historic cultural site, there are loads of other things to do in Oxford if you've got a bit of time to spare. The University has produced some of Britain's top actors, so stopping off for a matinee performance at the Oxford Playhouse or the New Theatre for some high quality performances is well worth your time. It's a great reprieve between a high energy morning activity and hitting the town later at night, proving the perfect opportunity for the girls to sit down and catch their breath!
Whether you're looking for a high octane weekend of adventure to see off the bride into matrimonial bliss, or you and the girls would rather lay back and be pampered, GoHen has a huge range Oxford hen activity ideas.
