You could say we’re a little biased, but we reckon Newcastle is the ultimate hen party destination, with literally hundreds of day time and night time activities to choose from, keeping you and the girls occupied throughout the entire weekend. One of the best things about Newcastle is how easy it is to get to from anywhere in the UK, with its International Airport and busy central train station (for more info on flights to Newcastle, see our Flight Finder) – meaning less time travelling and more time taking part in fantastic activities. Another thing to note about Newcastle activities, is how they appeal to all ages. Your Mother-in-Law is going to be pleasantly surprised when she hears that a sparkling afternoon tea in SIX Baltic, Ladies Day at Newcastle Races and a gin tasting experience in Bealim House is on the cards, and your 18-year old sister is going to be beside herself when a hair and make-up session is on the hen do itinerary, and that you’re hitting the Diamond Strip’s bars like House of Smith, Florita’s and Madame Koo, that she’s only ever seen on MTV. Speaking of nightlife, regardless of whether your vision of the perfect night out is a few civilised drinks in an Instagrammable bar or a blow-the-budget, all-nighter on the Newcastle tiles, our Geordie hometown is a universal pleaser.
With almost 300 hen do activities to choose from, you and the girls will certainly have enough to keep you going throughout the weekend. As far as popular daytime activities go, the most sought after activities include a cocktail workshop on the notorious Geordie Shore haunt, the Diamond Strip, a club cruise along the River Tyne and an evening at Newcastle’s retro bowling alley, Lane7.
If you’re new to Newcastle and want to be shown the very best spots by a lovely local guide, we can sort that out for you, with our highly popular Newcastle guided party bar crawl - there’ll usually be other groups coming along with you for the ride, so brace yourselves for some hilarious hen party action. Did we mention the complimentary shot or Jagerbomb in each bar?
Perhaps you're after something really unique, we recommend you and your fellow hens embracing your host city and take part in the Geordie Games, which is a lot like It’s a Knockout but with Geordie themed tasks – like On Ya Bike and the Broon Ale Run. One of our most popular activities amongst the braver and bolder hens is the zombie experience, where you and your group will have two and a half hours to play tactical, as the interactive zombie characters are unleashed into the 15,000sq ft arena, and they’re coming for you…
If, after all that drinking and defeating the zombie apocalypse, thus saving the world (it’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it), you need a little bit of relaxation time, Newcastle is just the place to be. Whether you’re after an inner city spa retreat, with plenty of muscle-soothing treatments by trained beauticians, or you’re wanting to hike the celebrations up a luxurious notch, with a glamorous afternoon tea in one of our many plush establishments, there’s an activity to suit everyone in Newcastle.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a proper hen weekend without celebrating the male form, and if you want a little more full-on than a nude life drawing class, get yourselves to a Dreamboys or Adonis Cabaret show. With some of the fittest lads in the entire country taking to the stage to showcase their rippling abs and bulging biceps, you’d be mad to miss it.
