Southampton is one of the UK's biggest and fastest growing cities, so it should be no surprise that the Southampton hen activities are some of the most varied and freshest around the city is thriving, and it only makes sense that the entertainment and leisure activities are too. Aside from the incredible shopping and city centre options, Southampton has the advantage of close proximity to both the New Forest and the Solent. When you want to escape the confines of the city and get out to the fresh air, you're spoilt with an abundance of options to let you stretch your legs and get back to nature. With city, countryside and sea, Southampton hen activities offer everything you could need for a fantastic time!
Southampton has a history as one of the more fashionable cities in the UK although it's primarily been a docking and shipping port, it was a big hit with the Georgians as a stylish spa town, and currently it's one of the best shopping cities in the south. There are plenty of Southampton hen activity ideas for a classy, chic weekend then like enjoying a 1920's Charleston session, the perfect way to kick up your heels and rock it like a flapper girl. If that leaves you tired and in need of some refreshment, taking afternoon tea is a brilliant way to enjoy lunch with the girls with finger sandwiches, pastries, and cakes, it's a quaint and charming meal, and guaranteed to delight any ladylike hens. And as no sophisticated weekend would be complete without a little pampering, why not round off the afternoon with a manicure? It's something hens of all ages can enjoy, and with a hand massage is included as an extra bonus, it's the perfect way to relax and unwind for a while.
Let's start this by saying that at GoHen, we're big fans of drinking sensibly. There's not much point to organising world-class hen activities, if you can't remember any of it the next day… and that's without even factoring in all the potential liver damage. That said, we like a drink (or two, or three) as much as anyone else, and if there's ever a time to indulge, a hen do has to be it! Depending on what the bride-to-be typically orders at the bar, we've got a host of Southampton hen activity ideas to suit. If the bride is a dainty drinker, a wine tasting party might be more her speed… and it teaches you some invaluable life skills to prevent you ever been stuck for what to bring to a party, or embarrassed by the sommelier, again. And for hens who just can't decide, a cocktail mixing party is one of our most popular hen activities ever you'll all get your turns at making some of the classics. Little umbrellas and a few flaming cocktails included!
It's easy to make a splash on your hen activities in Southampton… with the Solent right in front of it, as well as two different rivers running through, it's one of the best cities in the country for water sports, and our Southampton hen activity ideas take full advantage of their setting. You might be more used to seeing banana boats off the coast of Magaluf or Barcelona, but we've bought it to the UK, so you can recapture that holiday feeling around our shores too. Alright, the weather in Southampton might not be up to Mediterranean standards, but that doesn't stop this being some seriously fast-paced fun, guaranteed to having all the girls laughing (especially once someone's dropped off the sides). If you'd rather keep your arms and legs firmly inside the craft at all times, whitewater ribbing ups the thrill factor by speeding you around the sea at incredibly high speeds, just giving you time to admire the coastline as it whips past you. The powerboating grand prix is similar except this time, you're the ones in the driving seat.
With nearly 60 different ideas, there are more than enough options for you to create a package tailored perfectly to fit your bestie.
