Canterbury Hen Party Ideas

If you’re planning a quintessentially English hen weekend, Canterbury is the perfect destination. A trip to Kent, known as the Garden of England, is perfect for those hen parties who want to celebrate in a sophisticated, glamorous style.

The town of Canterbury lies in the district of the same name which encompasses both Herne Bay and the beautiful seaside resort of Whitstable. So, whether you are a hen party who likes historic towns, old fashioned English style pubs, or a stroll down the beach, Canterbury is the place to go.

Canterbury itself is gorgeous and an absolute must for history fans. The town is most famous for its Cathedral that dates from the sixth century and has been on the pilgrim’s trail ever since then. It has been the inspiration for authors like Chaucer, who wrote the aptly named Canterbury Tales, and it has been the focus of intrigue in its long history (most notoriously the slaying of Thomas Becket in 1170). The town itself offers more historical gems like the ancient ruins of the Castle and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church that form Canterbury’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Walking the city is thirsty work, so for those hen parties who are partial to cake and an indulgent afternoon tea, there are a host of places to munch some well-earned calories, from the quaint Moat Tea Rooms and Tiny Tim’s Tearoom to the lush Patisserie Valerie. For those who prefer their calories in liquid form, then Canterbury, a university town, has plenty to offer a hen party. Canterbury cocktail lovers should head to Margaritas, or for something a little bit different head to Canterbury’s rock ‘n’ roll bar, The Lady Luck.

Be taught a lesson!

It’s fun to mix things up a little – so why not have a rhinestone and feather inspired showgirl hen party in historic Canterbury – and follow it up with an afternoon tea. You deserve it and giggles are guaranteed!

If glitzy showgirls aren’t your style, don’t worry: Charm School has a wide range of other hen party dance classes from 80s, burlesque to can-can. Check out our syllabus for great hen party ideas in Canterbury and beyond.

I would just like to say thank you for sorting out our dance class with Foxy. Everybody was practising the dance moves on the dance floor on the night, and we all had a good giggle doing it. A huge thank you to Foxy for dealing with us as I think most of us were shy at first but she made us very welcome. I will definitely recommend these classes to other people, and hope to book one of my own in the future.
