Planning must-have activities and trying to blend a mix of friends, aunties and long-lost second cousins, all while keeping the bride happy, can feel a little overwhelming. But don’t stress. Here at Tagvenue we’ve rounded up the city’s best hen party night ideas, from luxurious Thames river boats to next-level cocktail masterclasses. Popular hen party ideas include:
Food and drink:
Some of the best hen parties in London are centred around delicious food and drinks. Cooking classes, cocktail masterclasses, tea parties, and pub crawls are all popular selections. For a more bespoke cocktail-making experience, check out the special hen party packages, where you can sample an awesome range of different cocktails before being challenged to make your own.
We know hen parties can be a chore to organise, so why not go on an organised hen party pub crawl, where you’ll be taken to a variety of bars around London and enjoy free entry, drinks, private areas, photo booths, and accessories? If you’d like to hold a more relaxed affair, then there’s also the option of enjoying a delicious afternoon tea, with decorated tables, chandeliers, and a whole range of delicious sandwiches, cakes and fancies served on vintage china platters.
On a night as special as this, you may want to party in your own private space, which can be easily found in London. If you are a lover of karaoke, rent out your own private room and take your pick from over 16,000 songs, order drinks from your own private bar, and sample a range of delicious tapas.
For something more unique, take a look at a VIP bus service that will make for an unforgettable hen weekend. The double-decker bus will whisk you around all corners of London city centre while handing out complimentary champagne and cocktails and pumping tunes of your choice from its inbuilt DJ booth. If you’re hitting the waters, you can command your own small boat and explore London’s canal network with a delicious picnic and free choice of alcoholic beverages (but not for the driver!)
Looking for more non-traditional hen party ideas? How about giving some sports a try? Across London, there are some great activities to get you moving, including dance, bowling, and various ball games. How about a round of mini-golf? Puttshack Bank will allow you to have a nice round of the game without having to sacrifice the pub experience. With so many private rooms available for hire, this place is perfect for both small and large groups.
Looking for hen party ideas that suit a more relaxed crowd or bridal shower? Rachel’s Nails & Coffee is an exclusive nail bar where you can treat yourself to a pampering session in private and peaceful surroundings. Alternatively, if you’d like to watch your favourite films in trendy and ambient surroundings, Whirled Cinema is the perfect place to do so, giving you a number of flexible time-slots, as well as providing catering and drinks.
Hen weekend/hen party abroad:
Book a stylish or unique hotel and make a weekend of it! Spa weekend is also a popular option. Is there anything better than an indulgent pamper session with your BFFs?
If your group includes fewer than 10 people, then most activities will cost between £20-£300 per person. If you have more than 10 people in your group then things start getting expensive (for example, because of insurance purposes). For groups larger than 15 people, it's best to book an activity that includes food/drinks (like a pub crawl) or something like paintball that has its own facilities so no extra setup costs are involved.

Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
