Manchester is an excellent choice for a hen weekend; it’s easily accessible from any spot in the entire UK, it’s got hundreds of fantastic activity ideas and its nightlife scene is second to none. The good thing about Manchester’s hen party activities is that there’s something to appeal to every age group and group taste, as the 210-strong range is so varied. The slightly older ladies in your party are going to jump for joy when they realise they’re going to be getting up close and personal with a naked chocolatier, and when they see a gin tasting experience is on the itinerary. Similarly, your mates from school are going to be chuffed when they realise your hen party activities are centred around some of the city’s very best bars and clubs – including cocktail workshops in Black Dog Ballroom and The Liar’s Club.

With over 200 hen do activities to choose from, Manchester is guaranteed to have something for every single hen group conceivable – including the biggest headache-inducing Bridezillas of you out there. Unsurprisingly, many of our most popular Manchester hen party activities fall under the nightlife canopy, and include the likes of Tiger Tiger guestlist entry or even a VIP drinks table. Revolution Manchester also have a cracking cocktail workshop and two course meal on offer, which is very popular with our hen groups, and the Cabaret Club entry is sure to get all of the girls giggling from the off.
We tend to find that a lot of our hen groups enjoy kicking their nights off with a party bus (we’ve got 16 seaters, 35 seaters and you can even have a meal on-board) or a similar unique form of transport, then head to a Dreamboys Show for an unmissable night of ripped, oily and seriously handsome men taking their clothes off. What’s not to love?
The gorgeous Dreamboys have been entertaining hen groups since their official launch in 1997, and they're showing no signs of slowing down; filled with muscles, music and dance routines, even the quietest of hens will be screaming at the top of their lungs for more. After you’ve been to the Dreamboys (and the drink has really started to kick in), why not belt out some power ballads with a karaoke pod hire? You did always think of yourself as a bit of an X-Factor wannabe, didn’t you?
As for Manchester day time activities, you and the girls will be spoilt for choice, trust us. Throwing you back to the ‘90s (ish), the Old School Sports Day is incredibly popular with the hens we send to Manchester, with all of the classic sports day games on offer, putting you through your paces and guaranteeing a whole lot of laughs. We’ve also got aqua zorbing, Hovercrafts, Mud Buggies and DTV Shredders, and urban axe throwing on offer, filling your days with adrenaline-pumping activities you’ll never forget.
If you need something to please your Mother-to-Be, and also a way to recover from your hangovers in style, you could get yourselves a spa day pass with a treatment. We have a number of spas on offer in Manchester, including the luxurious Nu Spa, with its lavish sauna, steam room and pool area for you to relax in.
