Hen Party Activities Hire Guide

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.

Private parties:

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. 

Chilled-out activities:

Looking for hen party ideas that suit a more relaxed crowd or bridal shower? She's Lost Control is a wellness studio where you can host a celebratory yoga session and make the future bride feel pampered. 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?

FAQs about Hen Party Activities in London

How much do hen party activities in London cost?

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.

How do you make a hen party special?

Here are some tips for making sure your hen party stands out:

  • Plan ahead by booking an activity (or activities) that matches the bride’s personality and interests. Have a theme–it doesn't have to be too elaborate, but having a theme for your hen party will help everyone get into the spirit of things and make it feel more like an event than just another night out.
  • Choose things to do that are fun for everyone on the guest list—the rest of the guests are just as important as the bride-to-be.
  • Make sure everyone has access to transportation from the venue to the activity, whether that means offering rides or arranging for taxis or public transit.
  • Take pictures with everyone dressed up in their bachelorette outfits. If you don't want to spend money on an outfit for each person (or if there aren't enough), pick out one that's super cute and get everyone else to wear something complementary (like tiaras).
  • Make sure everything is ready when you arrive at the venue, or at least when the bride arrives!

Booked The Private Dining Room at The Last Talisman
Great intimate space for a small private party, the ambiance and music was nice. Staff were nice and helpful.
Hannah L.
Booked The Bedouin Tent & Garden at St Ethelburga's Centre
The uniqueness of the property and value for money in the middle of liverpool street is amzing! It was better than I expected and the little courtyard with fountain on arrival was a pleasant surprise. The 3* for service all go to Nelson who was there on the evening and was amazing. He was knowledgable, friendly, flexible and I can't fault him or his service!

Soneeta A.
Booked Private Dining Room at Ninth Ward London
Venue was perfect for hen do (and a stripper), staff were very accommodating, room was stunning especially after we added some decorations. Easy to get to, we were left undisturbed and were able to play our own music (personal speaker). The price was shockingly cheap - just perfect!
Booked Cosy & Stylish Loft Dalston at Hoxtonlab Ltd
Marco service is simply amazing! He answered my multiple queries and phone calls within the hour and always accommodated any last minute queries, even at 12am in the morning. The venue is private, vintage type styled venue in a great location, providing us with the keys was a plus as we were able to come and go as we pleased. Marco, I sincerely thank you again, for allowing my friends and I too use your venue you were extremely accommodating even when our stripper ran late you very kindly allowed us to stay a little longer without any problems.

Amy C.
Booked NoSuchPlace Private Speakeasy at No Such Place
The layout of the venue was really versatile and adaptable for our needs. We hosted a hen party with a wine tasting and a glitter make up artist within the space. Having access to all the glasses was really good too. Location was fab The member of staff who met us (Sorry i cant remember his name!) was really helpful and helped me set up the youtube for the Mr and Mrs game.
Booked The Lounge at Floaty McFloat Face
Amazing The Hen actually cried with happiness when she seen it. Elizabeth was amazing she always answered any questions I had straight away. It was perfect. There was 17 of us in total and plenty of room to dance. The speaker was loud and sounded great. It was definitely the highlight of the Hen.
