Start your Cambridge hen party weekend off in style by heading out to the shops.

For your standard high street stores, cafés and restaurants head to the Grafton for some girly hen weekend shopping.

You might just find the perfect outfit for cocktails later in the evening! For an in-between, try Grand Arcade it has the perfect mix of high street and slightly, ‘higher’ street.Get More Party Game Ideas

Step off the river and put down those shopping bags – we can imagine how heavy they may be – and take a break. Take some time out to be positively English and have a good cuppa. And probably a selection of cakes of course! Cambridge has some exquisite cafés and tea rooms that would go down very well with all of your Cambridge hens. Auntie’s also offer a quintessentially British menu and is in the heart of Cambridge, perfect for a quick pit stop whilst exploring wouldn’t you say! If you have a jam packed Cambridge hen weekend planned, and we hope you do after reading some of these ideas, you and your hens may have no time to stop from one activity to the next, but everyone will need sustenance, so try some frozen yogurt for a little pick me up. Please note: we would advise to eat this slowly to avoid brain freeze and indigestion; they are no girls’ best friend! Don’t forget to add a naked butler to serve if you have a private room.
Take in the historical features Cambridge has to offer. Even if your hens aren’t usually the Museum types, the character and essence of some of the buildings here will certainly be inspiring. Head over to The Fitzwilliam Museum and take a look around their impressive collections. This may be more of an activity for hen groups with a mixed age range, if you are heading to Cambridge with, friends, mums and grannies, this would be a great place to visit. The Polar Museum is another great way to spend a few hours, have a wander, take in the history and learn a couple of new things you didn’t before! Even if you don’t want to spend a couple hours looking around somewhere, just walk around, the history is everywhere and hard to miss.
If strolling slowly around a museum or slow is generally not your thing, that’s ok. There is plenty to do on your Cambridge hen party that involves a much quicker pace! How about Quad Biking? Get your girls together – camo outfits and mud striped cheeks are essential – and take to the forest on your quad bikes. Get the adrenaline pumping while you race against each other to see who will be crowned champion of the quad! If quad biking is a little too messy, try its cleaner self, Go Karting. Still the action packed hen party idea with your girls but slightly less dirty. Want the adrenaline rush but not the boiler suits? Try a seduction class to get the heart pumping. A good sense of humour and a spoonful of openness are essential to make these two hours as much fun as possible. You know what they say, ‘laughter is the best remedy’ – maybe we made that up – but it will certainly help to remove any stress the bride may have!
Going out whilst on your hen party seems like the obvious answer but how about staying in? Not all night, but take pre-drinking to a new level. We all know that image too well, your with your girls preparing for a night out, numerous bottles of wine or spirits and a glass of something is always at arms reach, you strategically plan who will use the mirror and straightners first whilst the others are huddled around the bathroom mirror and you leave the house with piles of clothes on the bed and half drank wine scattered in the bathroom! Relax. Take a breath. Why not book an All Inclusive cocktail package to ease this pre-drinking process; a professional bartender, a very easy on the eye Butler in the Buff, four cocktails each and no stress of supplying anything. Have them come to your city apartment while you relax for the night ahead and even have your Butler clean up before he leaves – you will wake up the next morning feeling slightly better at not having to look at how much your drank!
Maybe you have a varied age range on your hen party, friends, mum, grannies and any new in-laws. Instead of taking grandma to the clubs to teach her the new moves, try something a little different and do a Murder Mystery evening in the heart of Cambridge. You will be served a three course dinner while the tails unravel and you have to decipher who done it! Everyone can get involved with this activity and with a few drinks along the way it makes for a fantastic evening of fun! If you want something different in the day try some crafty activities with your hens, you could make a scrap book page each and then put them together for the bride to be, decorate lingerie or make your own garter for the wedding day, why should just the bride be able to wear one – unless you are wearing a short dress, we do not advise that! – or maybe make your own cocktail ring and wear them over your Cambridge hen party weekend.
There are plenty of accommodation options in Cambridge to choose from whether you are in a small group or a larger one. There are various self catering apartments or houses you can rent that will accommodate you and your hens. Staying in house all together can be a lot more fun, having your whole hen party in one place will create a great atmosphere between everyone and means you won’t be separated into small groups. Plus it means you can drink champagne and get ready all together whilst singing at the top of your lungs in perfect harmony! If you have a more intimate hen group and would prefer to stay in the comfort of a hotel, you can choose from a list dotted around and in the centre of Cambridge. Perfect for you to be able to head out and explore as soon as you get there. With either option, make sure you book your Butler in the Buff to serve a strong drink after checking in and if you are staying in a private house, have him carry your luggage in; you do not need to strain yourself!
If you are truly splashing out on your Cambridge hen party and have no budget to keep to, make a reservation at Cotto. Their intricate serving detail is something to be in awe of; anyone who creates a dessert using tweezer like instruments is a true artist. If you fancy something a little more homemade Italian, take a look at Aromi’s gallery, their authentic Sicilian food is mouth-watering and easily edible on the move! If you fancy something a little simpler, try the Plough on the river serving wonderful gastro pub food, Zhonguha offers some delicious Chinese cooking and has fantastic reviews, you are you hens could get stuck into some wonderfully stuffed dumplings, or St. Johns Chop House for a good meaty meal. There are plenty to choose from, you and your hens will be spoilt for choice!
There are an abundance of cool bars in Cambridge that will suit anyone’s fancy for a drink or two. Baroosh is an exclusively over 21’s venue – so be sure your whole party is 21+ before heading there – and will start your night off the right way or head over for their Sunday jazz brunch! Nothing would cure that hangover quite like it. The Varsity Hotel and Spa has everything you could ask for, if you fancied an Elemis spa treatment in the day, a boutique stay at night, or food and drinks in the evening on the roof terrace! You don’t have to be staying here though, take to the terrace with your hens on your Cambridge hen weekend and drink in style with some beautiful scenery. Nusha is another popular pre-going out bar, showcasing bartenders who flip, toss and any other form of mixing that involves impressive throwing and catching, your cocktails right before your eyes! This would be a fun evening for those hens who like big drinks mixed with big tunes. Or get those newly purchased outfits and glossy nails over to All Bar One or The Fountain for a trendy evening of cocktails and merriment.
Don’t forget Butlers aren’t just for evening entertainment, book yours to bring you champagne with breakfast, lunch or dinner and download our hen party game ideas to play over your Cambridge hen party weekend!
