So your bestie is getting married, woohoo!! As excited as you are for the bride-to-be, this ultimately entails the two following snags…. 1) you’ve got to wear a questionable dress, and 2) you’ve got to plan a hen do. I’m afraid we can’t help out much with the first, but we’re certainly here to “Guide2” you through the second!
If you’re basing your celebration in the beautiful city of Hereford or surrounding towns, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re looking to party your pants off, or have a chilled one with the bride tribe, read on for some ideas to give your girl the ultimate Herefordshire send off.
An ever-popular choice for a hen-do, why not treat your team to a good old pamper at one of Herefordshire’s gorgeous salons or spas. With a number to choose from across the county, you’re spoilt for choice and will be sure to please everyone from the eighteen-year-old crazy cousin to the elderly grandmother. Why not incorporate a blow dry or cheeky manicure if you’re heading out on the town afterwards?!
A group of glammed-up girls, a bride-to-be, and penis straws galore. This can only mean one thing….. the great British hen-do pub crawl. When you’ve got a big group, and trying to find an activity to cater for everyone is just too overwhelming, there’s nothing like a good old knees up down the local strip to get things going. Take a look at our picks of the best wine bars, gin joints and nightclubs to make sure your night goes off with a bang.
The ultimate icebreaker, why not treat your boozy bunch to a tasting session at one of Herefordshire’s beverage establishments? For a real up-market treat, check out the renowned Chase Distillery tour, where you’ll be immersed in the world of premium spirit making and have a tutored tasting session with one of the distillery’s aficionados. A real crowd pleaser.
Is your bride the outdoors-y type? Why not get your group out and about and try your hand at one of Herefordshire’s many outdoor pursuits? How about a day of canoeing or kayaking down the Wye, with a stop off for a picnic and some prosecco on the way? Or for the daredevil in you how about the Land Rover experience at Eastnor castle, where you’ll have the opportunity to push not only the vehicle, but yourself, to the limit. Or even a spot of paintballing, go-karting or clay pigeon shooting? There really is something for everyone! Take a look at our best picks.
