Traditional hen nights are still popular though a lot of hens today tend to celebrate their hen do the way they want. For some, that means going for class instead of crass.
Going for a classy hen party will not be a problem in most locations as there are always so many other activities for the group to enjoy. For inspiration, here are some hen party ideas.
West End Experience
An evening at London’s West End can be the perfect idea of a hen night for hens that enjoy theater and good food. Though West End is famous for its musicales, this part of central London has so much more to offer than that.
This section has a lot of art galleries, museums, hotels, theatres, cinemas, nightclubs, shops, bars, and restaurants. All of those can be perfect venues for the celebration depending on the activities that the group enjoys.
Having a West End experience is not limited to hen parties in London as it is possible to have a similar experience in other cities as well. That is, as long as they have similar activity centres concentrated in a particular area.
Dreaming of concocting Love Potion No. 9? Dream no more and have a perfume making class as a hen party activity. It certainly might help friends that are only dreaming of being as lucky as the bride-to-be. What’s more, it’s something different and interesting.
There are certain places in Ireland, the United Kingdom, France, and other countries that offer such lessons for groups of people. It can also be a great excuse to travel for that hen weekend.
Hens that are already quite good at baking might not be interested in learning how to bake. However, a cupcake decorating lesson might be something that will tickle their fancy. With a little creativity, hens can learn how to decorate cupcakes for any occasion.
A cupcake, or desserts, in general, have the power to cheer people up as well. If the wedding preparations are getting rather stressful, this activity can be a way for the bride-to-be to have some fun.
Get pampered and well relaxed after spending a day at the spa. It’s normal for some hens to go to the spa for their hen do, but why settle for just that when the whole package can be a lot better.

Better than just hitting High Street and feeding that shopping frenzy, hire a professional fashion consultant. Shopping will then be a lot better with one.
Hens that love shopping probably know where to go. There are lots of great shopping locations and professional consultants are not that difficult to find either.
