With 2016 looking a very busy year for hen and stag parties, my top tip for 2016 is to book early! I have put together some fantastic hen and stag do ideas for 2016 to help you get your party started.

A Day At The Races

First and foremost, a day at the races is becoming extremely popular with hen and stag dos alike. It’s the perfect hen or stag do activity to get dressed up and experience the excitement of a live horse racing event.

Ascot is a great event, especially Royal Ascot which the Queen attends. Other fantastic venues include Newcastle, Chepstow, Cheltenham and Nottingham.


Cooking is the new skill you must have; everyone wants to be a Masterchef. So start by learning how to throw pizza dough about or how to BBQ the correct way without burning everything.


Other stag and hen party cookery classes include creating amazing curries and learning how spices work, chocolate making, how to make sushi, tapas… There are loads of day classes you can do on you hen or stag do in 2016; mix in a few drinks and you will love it!


Love football? Love golf? So why not do them together on this amazing hen/stag do activity in 2016.


Footgolf is what it says on the tin. You kick a football around a golf course and try to get the ball in the oversized holes. It’s looking to be a particularly popular stag do idea for 2016.

High Adventure

Although you have a harness, balancing on ropes or jumping 10 feet to another platform will scare the living bejeebies out of you.

Water Works

Whether you’re a fish out of water or love to get wet, water activities can be extremely exhilarating and loads of fun, especially with your mates on your hen or stag do.


From white water rafting, canyoning, speed boating, surfing, coasteering or even building boats out of cardboard. Any of these amazing activities can fit right into your hen or stag do in 2016, and will be the highlight of the weekend.
