Bath Hen Party Itinerary – Gather the Girls and Get Creative

If your bride-to-be likes to get creative, head to Bath for a do-it-yourself hen party. Your hens will get to bond over new activities and maybe even take home a handmade memento of the trip! Whether your bride-to-be is crafty, culinary, or just likes to get stuck into learning new skills, you’ll be sure to find the perfect activities for a jam-packed and fun-filled hen weekend.

Day One

Daytime

If you fancy trying something crafty, look no further than a hen party session at The Makery. You could get the hen to make her very own garter, create beautiful flower crowns to rival the Snapchat filter or have a go at life drawing (with a suitably eye-catching model, we are assured)! Your party will learn a new skill and get to take home a handmade memento.

Alternatively, head to Crockadoodledo Pottery Painting Café for a fun and relaxing paint your own pottery experience. Offering a wide range of pottery options including bowls, mugs, plates and vases, each of your hens will find something fabulous to paint, and create a unique keepsake.

Another fantastic option is to uncover the ancient art of glass blowing at a Bath Aqua Glass workshop. You’ll learn the basic skills of glassmaking in order to make your own paperweights under the guidance of a professional glassblower.

After a busy morning of creating, head to Aqua Restaurant and Bar for a spot of lunch. With a large and theatrical main dining area, Aqua offers the absolute best of ‘new Italian cuisine’, offering delicious sharing platters, stunning fish dishes and authentic Italian pizzas.

Evening

Extend your creativity into the evening with a distillery tour and gin making class at Bath Gin Company. You’ll be shown the tricks of the trade, and have the chance to experiment with different flavours to create a bespoke gin to cater to your palate. Each of your hens will receive a 50ml miniature of Bath Gin as a souvenir. Afterwards, head downstairs to the Canary Gin Bar for a few cocktails served up by their knowledgeable and friendly staff.

If you’d prefer to down tools for the evening and have a relaxing bite to eat, head to The Stable for a taste of the West Country. Tuck into a delicious Bath-themed pizza (we’d recommend the West Country Porker) or pie, washed down with a cider tasting board. One of the restaurant’s in-house Cider Masters will be on hand to guide you through the range of ciders on offer.

Day Two

Daytime

Spend a few hours at Verve Living, located in Bath’s Artisan Quarter, and learn something new. Whether you fancy trying out ceramics, wire sculpting, lampshade making, floristry or artisan chocolate tasting, you decide what you'd like to do and Verve will do the rest!

If your bride-to-be is of a culinary persuasion, try a cookery class with a twist at Persian inspired Simi’s Kitchen. Each class provides a memorable experience of authentic Persian/Azeri food and hospitality. Starting with homemade drinks and nibbles, the lesson culminates in enjoying the feast you have cooked up together, followed by sweets, chai and a chat.

Evening

After a busy couple of days creating, sit back, relax and enjoy a play at one of the country’s oldest theatres, the Theatre Royal Bath. The spectacular venue, built in 1805, offers a year-round programme of top quality drama, including West End productions, opera, comedy and dance, and is sure to provide an entertaining evening for all. Pre-show dining is offered at The Vaults Restaurant or The Garrick’s Head, which also happens to be a great place for a post-show tipple.
