1) Burlesque classes
Even shy hens will leave a sexy, sassy burlesque class feeling full of confidence!

2) Cupcake decorating
Get your girls in practice for icing those wedding cupcakes at a cake decorating class. Alternatively, set up your own at home if you're on a budget!

Lots of the larger bar chains around the country offer cocktail making classes for hen dos. And the best bit? You get to drink the results!

4) Adventure trail
If you're a more adventurous bride, try somewhere like Go Ape for an adrenalin-fuelled hen do with a difference.

5) Afternoon tea
Celebrate in style with a sophisticated afternoon tea – branches of Hotel du Vin offer them, as do lots of independent hotels. Don't forget the champagne too!

6) Canal boating
Hire a canal boat for the weekend and take your girls on a waterway adventure – stopping off at lots of country pubs, of course.

7) Spa days
Spa days are a great way to feel relaxed before the big day, and don't have to cost a fortune. Look out for special offers on sites such as Wahanda, or book somewhere like Bath Spa, where you can enjoy two hours in the steam rooms and open air pool for just £26 per person.

8) Kayaking
If you're heading to a seaside town such as Brighton for your hen do, why not get your hens out on the seas and in some kayaks! It's great fun, and a good way to get a healthy glow before hitting the town!

9) Craft days

Learn to make pretty bunting or wedding favours at a craft workshop – there are lots of them springing up around the country.

10) Flower arranging
