Chester is that place to go if you want a weekend with the girls that’s crammed with fancy cocktails and a relaxing pamper.

And of course if you’re heading over to Chester in the warmer months then it’s the perfect time to get all glammed up in your favourite dress for a day at the races.

If you’re feeling quirky then head over to Godstall Lane and explore the hidden gems around or perhaps you want to head to Northgate and Watergate Street on the Rows where you will find the independent retailers.

Occupy Your Days

Explore the City

This city is so rich in history and full of impressive sights to see and what better way to explore what this city has to offer than with the Smartphone Pub Treasure Hunt? And the best part about this is you can decide when and where it starts so that you make the most of your experience. And of course put your brains together to complete quizzes and challenges together in a race to see which group of hens will claim victory.

Get Moving

Don’t settle for a standard weekend, get all the girls up and moving with the Dance Class Ideas for the hen weekend. What better way to create some memories than by dancing around to some classic 80s songs or perhaps shaking those hips like Queen B herself. No matter what theme you choose this activity will be a great twist on the usual hen weekend away.

Throw it Back

Since Chester is the city of history it would be rude to throw it back anywhere else but here, especially when you jump into the Old School Sports Day during your hen weekend. If you’re looking for something a little bit more energetic to fill your day, then this activity will be perfect for you. And what better way to reminisce the good old days than with an old school sports day full of the classics.
