Wine Tasting, Kent and other locations
The wine industry in the UK is currently booming and what better time to experience Italian vibes within driving distance? Pack up the car and head to Terlingham Vineyard in Kent; a beautiful vineyard offering 2-hour wine and food tours, showcasing stunning views of France across the English Channel.
Price: Bespoke packages available
The Great Geordie Cake Off, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Ready, set, get your bake on lass.
If your bride wants a piece of the Great British Bake-Off pie, head to Newcastle for this baking extravaganza led by a professional chef who will judge each of your final works of art. This 2-3-hour experience is guaranteed to set off the competitive spark between your group and what better way than to finish it all off than to indulge in your own masterpieces?

If All Else Fails, Why Not Host Your Own Bridgerton Themed Soiree?
The season is upon us. Make your hen do the social event of the season with a Bridgerton-themed treat. If your bride is looking to experience a taste of real-life royalty, take a leaf out of Putney’s Bruncherton book and create your own bottomless brunch experience with a sensational Georgian-esque style. We’re doubtful Regé-Jean Page will be able to make an appearance but here’s hoping Bruncherton does make another appearance this 2022 at Putney’s Pleasure Gardens.
Price: Set Your Own Budget (or keep an eye out on socials to see if Bruncherton launches again at Putney’s Pleasure Gardens this year!)
A Weekend Of Hen-tertainment
Whatever you choose to do, we know you’ll make it an experience your bride can reminisce over for years to come. Need help planning your bride’s special celebrations? Get in touch with us for more information.
