Hen Weekend Ideas in Perth

Have your hen party in Perth, or in a remote Perthshire country lodge, then dance the night away in the ‘Fair City’ after a fabulous Charm School dance class.

Named in 2012 as Scotland’s seventh city, beautiful Perth in the heart of Scotland has many attractions and activities. It has been known as the Fair City since it inspired Sir Walter Scott to write the story of the Fair Maid of Perth in 1828, and has played a pivotal role in Scottish history being located on the main route to the Highlands of Scotland.

Nearby Scone Abbey houses the famed Stone of Destiny, and has enhanced Perth’s importance throughout history; the city was known as a capital of Scotland, as the Royal Court often took the city as its residence here. Now regarded as a national treasure, Scone Palace occupies a special place in Scottish history.

Shrouded in mystery and legend, Scone was a place of religious worship for both pagans and Christians. Scone was the crowning place of the King of Scots, and as such is greatly revered. The place of coronation was known as Caislean Credi, ‘Hill of Credulity’, which today survives as Moot Hill. Robert the Bruce was crowned here in 1306 and the last coronation was of Charles II in 1651. The Stone of Destiny, aka the Stone of Scone, has an intriguing history. The origins of the stone are subject to many legends, but it seems the Stone was used for enthroning Scottish monarchs. With a turbulent history, this plain looking stone has been fought over, hidden and captured for over 700 years! The stone stayed at Scone until the 13th century, and was then taken (controversially) to Westminster Abbey. Apart from a short period in 1950 when it was famously taken to Scotland by four nationalist students, it remained in London until 1996, when the British Government allowed it return to Scotland. It now rests in Edinburgh Castle. The stone itself was last used in 1953 when our Queen, Elizabeth II, had it present at her coronation. So, Scone Palace is definitely worth a visit!

In the city, the Black Watch Castle and Museum, in the dramatic Balhousie Castle, houses exhibits about Scotland’s best known regiment, and Perth Museum and Art Gallery is one of the oldest museums in the UK with over half a million objects. For something a bit different, time your visit to tie in with an exciting fixture at Perth Racecourse and have a flutter on the horses.

For shoppers, Perth has a great range of major stores in the centre and in St John’s Shopping Centre, and also many independent shops around the High Street area.

Culture fans have two theatres in town – Perth Theatre and Perth Concert Hall – in which to take in music, theatre, comedy and dance. Nightlife-wise, Perth has a good mix of trendy bars and old fashioned pubs. The top places to go for locals and tourists alike are the lively Loft, located above That Bar, and the Ice Factory.

Be taught a lesson!

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at the burlesque hen party in Bournemouth on Saturday.

I could not rate Charm School more highly. From the initial planning stages to the actual class, Jane (I can’t remember your burlesque name – sorry!) was helpful and professional at every stage. Our class was in Bournemouth taught by the amazing Miss Coco Cleopatra. She was fun, explained all the moves and background to burlesque and put everyone at ease so that even the more reserved ladies were tassel twirling like best of them by the end of the class. Not only did the bride love it but the best part was that we could take the moves we learned and try them out in the clubs later that night – the people of Bournemouth didn’t know what hit them! If you want a hen weekend activity that will guarantee plenty of laughs make you feel fabulous and glamorous during and after the class, choose Charm School burlesque – we could not have picked a better activity.

Please pass on my thanks to Miss Coco Cleopatra for making it such a class to remember.
