Guinness Factory Tour and Connoisseur Experience in Dublin

The building itself is designed in the shape of a huge pint glass, so huge it could hold 14.3 million pints. Your journey will take you through the brewing and fermenting processes, advertising through the ages, a Connoisseur tasting experience, and end in the ‘head’ of the pint glass, The Gravity Bar, for a well-deserved drink.

Outdoor Activities for Your Hen Weekend

Forget cocktails in a dimly-lit bar and male strip shows (they’re for later…), and embrace the great outdoors on your hen weekend. The ‘typical’ hen party is no longer a drink, dance and pizza in the early hours. It’s a chance to take part in once-in-a-lifetime activities – guaranteed to provide you with plenty of likes for Instagram. Lauren of Last Night of Freedom has rounded up the best outdoor activities for the ultimate hen weekend.

British Airways i360 Champagne Flight, Brighton

Brighton’s British Airways i360 is the newest and most exciting building on the town’s skyline.

British Airways i360 in Brighton

This is the world’s first vertical cable car, conceived and created by the same architects who designed our beloved London Eye. For those in the hen group with a strong stomach for heights, this glass capsule – 10 times the size of a pod on the Eye – will take you 450ft into the air, for stunning and unparalleled 360° views of Brighton.

It glides very slowly up the pole and has room for 175 visitors, along with a bar in the centre of the pod, licensed to serve all day and during the evening. Wine and views… bliss.

Water Wipeout, Bournemouth

This hugely popular activity is as challenging as it is hilarious, particularly after the bride-to-be takes a dunking.

Water Wipeout Hen Weekend Activity in Bournemouth

Our Water Wipeout outdoor hen weekend activity is for the brave and strong… and those who don’t mind getting wet. Reminiscent of Takeshi’s Castle, but set entirely on water, you’ll spend a couple of hours conquering two different lakes.

The ‘Action Loop’, located on the Castle Lake overlooking Corfe Castle, consists of 70 metres of inflatable obstacles and difficult crossings over the water. Your second destination, Woodland Lake, features several similar and exhilarating games. Action Tower, Gladiator Rings and Commando Rope will see you soaring above the water on trampolines and the like, ready for a well-deserved cocktail afterwards.

Afternoon tea on a bus is quintessentially British, and this vintage vehicle will take you around London’s greatest sights – with the addition of lashings of tea.

You’ll go on a whirlwind tour of The London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St James’ Park, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch, Piccadilly Circus, Nelson’s Column and even more, under the guidance of a uniformed London bus driver.

Take the Mil (mother-in-law for those not in the know) all the way back to her youth on your hen weekend, with an ABBA dance class.

Dancer Dressed in 70's Clothing

The swinging 70s were a better time – all flares, perms and hairy chests – and ABBA was the very best. That all-singing, all-dancing husband and wife (recipe for disaster) group spawned some of the best moves of the decade, and we’re still trying to emulate them. This class will take you from 0 to Dancing Queen, and the winner really will take it all, as the star dancer wins a bottle of bubbly.
