Rock a music festival

Poppy Delevigne celebrated part of her hen weekend at Coachella recently. So why not jump on the bandwagon and head off to one of the gazillion music festivals across the UK this summer. If you're not one for roughing it, many festivals have a glamping option where you can stay in a yurt or camping pod.

Hen weekend in Berlin

Having a hen party abroad is nothing new. But how about changing things up with an off-beat destination. And, if you're after quirky stuff to do, check out Berlin for unusual hen party ideas:

  • Trade on the beer exchange
    For a fun start to your night, drop into the Brokers Bier Börse after 5pm. This cool bar turns into a beer stock exchange after 5pm, when fixed prices are forgotten and instead bar prices are set by supply and demand.
  • Play ping pong
    Dr. Pong's has to be one of the more random night spots you'll come across anywhere. Get your paddle at the door and then join the throng around the ping pong table. Drinks + music + ping pong = WIN.
  • Visit the opera
    If you and your hens are under 30, a Classic Card gives you access to front row seats at the opera or the ballet for just 10 euros – that's less than a meal out.
  • Open air karaoke
    After an evening of high culture, come back down to earth with an afternoon of karaoke madness in Mauerpark

Life drawing party

Too classy for strippers but still fancy feasting your eyes on a hunk of man flesh? Then a life drawing hen do should be top of your unique hen do ideas list. It's all good clean fun in the name of art. With naked men. That is all.

Hire a narrowboat

Get away from it all with a relaxing break on the British waterways. Hiring a narrowboat is a great way to spend some quality time with your gal pals away from distractions. Load up with food, drink and tunes and venture off for a low key, high fun hen do.
