Girls hen partyFor the brides specifically, Harborough has lots of activities on offer for hen parties. Here are some of our top picks for an unforgettable hen do in Market Harborough:

Hire a canal boat

With the Grand Union Canal running through Market Harborough, Union Wharf (a ten-minute walk from our hotel) is the perfect place to hire a canal boat. Fitting up to 12 people, you can spend the day cruising down the canal, stopping off at pubs and sites along the way. Remember to draw straws on who the designated driver will be!


Spas and clubs may be the tradition for he, but how about doing something a bit different that gets the adrenaline pumping. Avalanche Adventure is an activity centre on the outskirts of Market Harborough that offer a wide range of outdoor activities including quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, racing buggies, archery and even blindfold driving.

Cocktail making classes have become a recent phenomenon for hen parties and they’re appealing because it’s something for everyone to do and enjoy. Mojitos, margaritas and cosmopolitans – take your pick!

Trampoline park

Before you skip over this one: hear us out! An hour jumping around at a trampoline park is perfect for breaking the ice if not everyone at the party knows each other. It’ll turn your group into the biggest kids of all. There are a couple trampoline parks in Leicester with features including foam pits, basketball hoops, tumble tracks, ninja obstacle course, gladiator pit and arcade areas.
