Are you thinking of having a Newcastle hen party? But are you a bit stumped for ideas? The team here at Butlers in the Buff have researched some excellent hen party activities to save you from the hard work. Famous for the invention of Lucozade, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Billy Elliot, and Geordie Shore, there is an abundance of fun activities suitable for all types of hen personality.
Set your hens a bit of a challenge by completing a Go Ape adventure! You and your girls become ‘gorillas’ to climb around a stunning treetop obstacle course, which includes zip-wires and Tarzan swings. We guarantee some hilarious memories.
Or get a bit more competitive at Newcastle’s F1 indoor karting track. Whizz around in go kart and see who can attempt a record lap time! A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!
Or if your guests prefer a bit of puzzle-solving over adrenalin why not book your hen party into a twenties themed murder mystery night?! Enjoy a three-course dinner while juicy snippets of gossip about the mystery are revealed between courses. The night ends in with the murderer’s big reveal and prizes for the girls that guessed the suspect correctly! They provide costume props and it is a great opportunity for some brilliant photos!
A hen party is often a time where you and your girls indulge in a well-deserved relaxing treat. Book your group into one of Newcastle’s premium spas, like Body and Mind Massageand bond over massages, facials or pedicures.
Replenish energy levels with a spot of afternoon tea.Jesmond Dene House is famous around Newcastle for its cakes, scones and bread. Treat yourself to a glass of champagne to accompany some finger sandwiches and fresh pastries.
Learn Something New
Why not get your hens to become domestic goddesses for the afternoon? Book a cupcake decorating, sushi making or chocolate creating class for some new culinary skills that will seriously impress at home! If you are looking for something a little more luxurious, you should visit Newcastle’s Wine School for a champagne and wine tasting evening, which includes canapés, a qualified wine host and of course, lots of champagne!
If your hens are feeling a little mischievous, we suggest trying a seduction and foreplay class to become experts in allurement. Or learn how to swing around a pole like a professional dancer in a pole dancing class. Not only will your girls feel sexy, but it is great exercise and will leave everyone feeling strong and toned. Alternatively, take part in a life drawing class for a mixture of creativity and cheekiness. Maybe hire a Butler in the Buff for a real-life Adonis…
A shopping trip is a vital part of any hen party and Newcastle is home to Europe’s largest shopping centre, Intu Metrocentre. It boasts 330 outlets, enough to please everyone’s special tastes, whether it be a new cocktail dress for you hen party night out or even getting a strike at the bowling alley. If you haven’t quite shopped ‘till you dropped, head to Royal Quays outlet centre for a few unbelievable bargains and Central Arcade, to pick up a few souvenirs as well as admire the beautifully triple-domed building.
Next grab your high heels and wonder into Newcastle’s exciting nightlife! There are plenty of bars and clubs where you and your hens can sip on a few cocktails. Are you a gin fan? Pleased to Meet Youcan be found in one of Newcastle’s most historic buildings and stocks more than 50 different types of gin. Gin heaven!
