"Had the most amazing time, an escape room was something that the hen had not done and would highly recommend. Cocktail making was a fab experience and excellent venue!"

At GoHen we don't do "cheap". It's the bride's big weekend, she doesn't want "cheap". However, we do have some great quality hen party activities that won't break the budget. Treasure hunts, dance classes, cocktail mixing are all good wallet cuddling options that won't melt the credit cards. Alternatively hire a hen party house, add a butler in the buff and play your own party games.
Some people think a hen weekend is all about taking it easy ahead of the big day. Some bride's want to go a little bit crazy and try something new. But you can have your crazy cake and eat it. You have 48 hours to party so pick something a little more 'out there' and energetic for day one and then something a little more simple and soothing before departure on day two.
Everything! You name it, we've got it. Harry Potter fans can play quidditch, enter escape rooms, or mix cocktails and potions. You can have a bake off, climb a mountain, dance like Beyonce, race cars, sail boats, meets hunks… GoHen have thousands of activities to choose from.
Book Early - There are always deals to be had, the earlier in advance you book, the quieter the supplier's calendar will be and the more likely you'll be able to get a good deal.
Use an Expert - At GoHen we book thousands of activities every year, this buying power means we get excellent rates we pass on to our groups. So, booking through a quality hen party provider can actually save you money.
Double Up - Another great way to get more for your money is to book two activities at one site. You can have double the fun and get a great discount on the second activity.
Everywhere! When it comes to having a crazy time on the bride's special weekend, the world is your lobster! We've scoured the UK, Europe and beyond to find the best, craziest, tastiest, funniest, most relaxing hen activities in all our destinations. So no matter where you want to go, we can provide you with the best activities to suit your party mood.
It’s never too early to look into arranging the hen party activities in fact the earlier the better. Most hen weekends take place 6 – 8 weeks before the wedding and as there are certain weekends each year that are the busiest for weddings, the same is true for hen weekends. That means some hen weekend activities get really booked up.
At GoHen we can help you beat the rush and with our thousands of industry contacts we can help you get your preferred dates (as long as you let us know early enough).
The other reassurance you get booking with GoHen is that all our hen do activities are tried and tested, then they're tried and tested again and again and again. We ask all our groups for feedback, that mean people like you (as well as our team of Event Managers who regularly visit our destinations), help us ensure that our activities and suppliers live up to our very high hen activity standards to ensure you get the best weekend possible.
We also ensure your hen weekend is totally protected. At GoHen, we're ABTA and ATOL protected which means we work to the highest standards of financial transparency and protection so that should something go wrong you are fully protected. You can see our full ABTA and ATOL information here.
We also ensure all our sites and providers have complete public liability insurance. Yes, we agree that all sounds very boring (it is boring), however it is vital to help keep you safe and not all providers will have it in place. Always book with a trusted, reputable hen activity company (over here! GoHen, we're very sensible, honest).
1. Pick Well - Selection is worth taking your time on, you want hen do activities that the bride prefers and that’ll also work for the group as a whole – challenging as it may seem at first your job as organiser is to ensure everyone enjoys it! Understand that and you’re already on the way to a more successful event.
2. Detail - Make sure you know exactly what you’re getting, that way you’re well informed which means you can manage group expectations and stay one step ahead.
3. Timing - Double check activity scheduling works well with any other plans you’re making, from arrivals to departures to any necessary transfer and recovery time you and the girls may need. (Another reason for planning as early as possible). And make sure everyone turns up on time!
4. Venues - Ensure you disclose all requirements in advance so that any preferences can be met. If you’re doing more than one activity, complementary locations can be a necessary consideration to get the best from your itinerary. In any case why not call your venues in advance and tell them you’re really looking forward to coming, it could well stimulate a little extra VIP service.
5. Directions - Make sure you and everyone else in the group knows where they’re headed. That way you can stick to timing as mentioned above.
6. Transfers - Think about whether you need to arrange any transfers, if you don’t need them clearly coordinating transport within the group is great idea.
7. Clothing - If you need to, make sure you tell the girls in advance how to dress for any hen party activities. If you’re an “extra miler” you might also want to check the weather forecast.
8. Refreshments - After the action the girls might be hungry or thirsty or both, do you want to arrange some refreshment on site or nearby or on the return journey or can you wait until you get back? Is it a good time for a celebration cake, a couple of bottles of bubbly, a snack, lunch or something else. Who said strip-o-gram?
9. Control - Don’t be knocked off course or influenced by other members of the group, you’re the organiser, you know what you’ve arranged and staying in control means sticking to the plan. Hen Power!
10. Health - Make sure the girls tell you if they have any concerns so that they may be relayed and or considered, for example some activities have restrictions, especially for pregnancy. At the very least make certain everybody has been advised to get any appropriate insurance.
But if you really want to get it right and most likely save time, hassle and money why not drop us a brief today, you’ll be glad you did.
