Go All Out Chocolate With Your Hens
MyChocolate offers chocolate workshops for hen parties, perfect for any bride-to-be with a sweet tooth. The workshop starts off with chocolate education and a tasting session of 100% chocolate and crushed cocoa beans. You’ll then get a chance to get the baking mitts on as you start your luxurious decoration of handmade chocolate treats.
Then the best bit: you’ll get goody bags filled with your chocolate creations and a giant button each to take home. Great for energy to keep the party going…or for a hangover cure for the rest of your Bachelorette weekend!
The full workshop is two hours long and costs £40pp. This is conditional on your hen party having at least 5 people at the chocolate workshop. They also offer a service of personalising your experience, you just have to get in touch with them from the details on their website.
It’s located at Malmaison, which is one of our recommended Manchester hen party accommodation options. Their schedule is every Saturday at 11am or 3pm but you can probably get in touch if you need a specific time.

They have excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and everyone has a blast!
It’s priced at £59pp, which is on the high side for a two-hour activity for a hen party. Also note that it’s played in teams of 8, so you will have to organise your hen group accordingly. It’s located beside the Science and Industry museum.
See what all the fuss is about!
Go From IRL to Virtual Reality
Virtual Hideout in Manchester promises that you can experience the future today! Book in advance via the website and you’ll get to choose from 100 different options for VR experiences. Some examples include Shooters, Horror and Escape Rooms/Puzzles.
They have brilliant Tripadvisor reviews, rated as the top activity in Manchester. Of course they get high marks for innovation and for offering something different, beyond the standard spas and brunch.
This is also a great idea for any winter hen parties to stay cosy and dry inside no matter the weather.
The pricing on the website is confusing, but here’s the breakdown. One headset costs £40 per hour. They usually recommend sharing between 2-4 people for that hour as it’s fun to see how people do with their VR game. So if you have 4 people, then it’s £10pp and 15 minutes each on the headset.
Their max capacity at a time is 12 people with three headsets. If you have a large group of more than 12, then this is good to take into consideration.
They also get booked out quickly so this is one that needs to be organised well in advance. They’re open 7 days a week from 10.30am to 6pm and they’re located at Church St.
