A Hen Weekend In Bath

November 17, 2022

Nestled in the heart of the West Country is the ancient city of Bath, famous for its opulent architecture and ties with the Georgian author, Jane Austen. So called by the Romans on account of the city’s natural springs, Bath has been a haven for socialites through the ages, and as much of the architecture remains intact to this day, so have Bath managed to maintain its reputation as a hub for party goers. This has made a mecca for social gatherings – and in particular, hen parties. 

So, don your L plates and grab your phallus-shaped straws! Here are a few of the top ways to spend a hen weekend in Bath.

Finesse a flash dance

Hen parties often span multiple generations, so why not get everyone into the groove with a 70’s or 80’s dance class. Working together under the direction of your dance instructor, your hens will showcase a routine to a classic soundtrack from your chosen decade. It’s guaranteed to create laughs all round – and add to your group’s repertoire of moves. You can even show off your new skills at the wedding!

Bob along the Avon, with Bath boat cruises

A river cruise through Bath is a relaxing way to see some of the beauty the city has to offer. With the option to take some bottles of fizz and your choice of tunes on board, Bath city boat trips offers a unique venue to kick off your hen party. Following spectacular views of the weir, you will pull into one of Bath’s riverside restaurants for a spot of lunch before returning on board, where the bride-to-be can, (under the supervision of a skipper) take the wheel on your return journey. 

Go wild and wacky with West Country games

If you are looking for things to do in Bath, West Country Games offer a chance for your Hen crew to dress down and get active. With nine games, including just one for your bride-to-be, you are in for an action-packed day filled with non-stop laughter. For those with a competitive edge, there is even a prize for the winner. 

If your weekend allows for a short train ride, West Country Games’ sister company is an awesome option if you are looking for things to do in Cardiff. Head to the Welsh countryside (just outside of Cardiff) and wow your hens with nine wild and Welsh-themed games. From sheep shenanigans to the Rugby run, there is plenty the whole party will enjoy!

Bing on bubbly bottomless brunches

Bottomless brunches are becoming a popular hen activity – and it is clear to see why. What better way to get to know the rest of the group than over delicious food and with a glass (or three or four) of fizz in hand. 

The Botanist offers a build-your-own brunch board, which includes a variety of baked delights, hearty classic dishes and sweet treats. With vegetarian and vegan options – as well as the choice of a pint for those who are not a fan of fizz – your whole hen party are sure to have their taste buds tantalised by the array of options.

Green Park brasserie is another firm favourite for hen party brunchers. Located in the centre of Bath, this unique venue offers a 2-course brunch that lends itself to more of a lunch – a great option if you are starting your bottomless brunch a little later in the day. Dishes include mouth-watering steak frites, chunky steak burgers, as well as vegan options, which can all be enjoyed with a selection of cocktails, beer and of course plenty of fizz. 

Whether you want a calming catch up before the big day or one last hurrah with your besties, there is something for every hen party in Bath!
