Great Hen and Stag Do Ideas

Hen Party | BIG North Devon Wedding Show

When you’re planning your own, or a friend’s, hen or stag do you have to make sure you have some great ideas on the table to suit all people invited. It would be no good having granny coming along only to find out she needs to scale a full-size military assault course and in the same way, if going as a group of 20-something males you probably won’t want to sit through a spa day – or maybe you would!

Here’s a few of our top suggestions for the best hen and stag do ideas:

Driving Experience

Grab your mates and head to the track – lots of companies will allow you to test drive around a track in a fancy car, the hard part is deciding which car!

Spa Day

There’s nothing more relaxing than a day at the spa, why not throw in a back massage or add on a facial, just make sure you spend plenty of time in the hot tub to de-stress!


Take out some of your wedding planning frustrations with a day paintballing. Maybe the Chief Bridesmaid deserves pummelling with paintballs!

Go Abroad

The traditional but most expensive option for a hen or stag do. You have limitless choices, plenty of activities and plenty of drink!

Shopping Experience

If retail therapy is your thing then why not book a personal shopping experience at a big department store such as Debenhams or John Lewis. You get the VIP experience and get bags of shopping!

Activity Day

Why not take a group of you to an assault course or activity experience, you’ll release some adrenaline and have great fun doing it!

Afternoon Tea or Lunch

Take a more relaxed day out with friends and family and head to a nice afternoon tea – cakes, sandwiches and maybe a prosecco or 2!

Go Karting

Another fantastic high-speed idea for those that want a bit of competition on their hen or stag do! Who will take the podium positions!

Theatre Trip

If you live in a city, or want to travel to one, a theatre trip is a great night out for a group who maybe don’t want all the drink and nightlife side of things. There are some fantastic shows to choose from!

Cocktail Making

Who doesn’t love a good cocktail! Grab your favourite bar tender and learn how to become a cocktail mixologist!

Night Out

The good old classic! Hopefully a night on the town won’t result in someone left tied to a lamppost naked, but will involve fancy dress, drinks and plenty of laughs!

Day at the Races

There are some great horse racing courses around the UK and they all make a great day out for hen and stag do parties. With betting (keep it in moderation!), drinks, laughs and entertainment!
