Action Woman

If you're looking for a few Manchester hen activities that are a bit more active, there's plenty of excitement and action to be found. The Inflatable Games is unusual but uproarious, having groups of hens splitting their sides laughing as they try to complete the course. For go karting, Manchester is a top choice. It's always been popular with the stags and is quickly becoming a winner with the hens too, bringing out the girls' competitive side and getting their adrenaline pumping. If the girls are less competitive, but you're still looking for something lively, give cheerleading a whirl. It's good, spirited fun that will have the whole group shaking their pom poms with joy. Go hens.

Cheeky Chicks

A hen do isn't a hen do without a bit of naughty fun, and there are plenty of activities that will add a bit of mischief to your weekend. You don't have to wait till nightfall to show your saucy side. The fun can start at any time of day, with fantastic activities like pole dancing lessons! Even shy hens will have fun, as it's a great work out (and more importantly, great fun) for all the girls to enjoy. If you're all wild children at heart but want to keep it a little more tasteful, try a life drawing class. It's popular with hens of all ages, and you don't need any artistic skill, just a sense of humour.

What else?

Manchester is a vibrant, exciting city, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about during the day, and spend some quality time with the girls. Chinatown is a good area to see before you head home on a Sunday morning, as one of the most ambient and interesting districts in Manchester. The city is also home to some of the most diverse shopping centres in the UK, designer brands like Vivienne Westwood, DKNY, Armani, and Zenga, amongst others, have made their home here. Even if your budget doesn't quite stretch to haute couture prices, window shopping is nearly as satisfying (at least, that's what we tell ourselves).
