Hen Parties

Hen Parties

Uncover the magic and nostalgia of weddings through the generations. You and your Hen Party will be welcomed to the York Castle Museum to join our curators for a fascinating tour through original costume, artefacts and recipes of bygone days. All with a wonderful sense of fun!

The Hen Party activity session is a three-part programme:

  • Costumes and artefacts: One of our knowledgeable curators will unveil 8 objects from our collections to explain their significance and history to weddings and brides in the past.
  • Afternoon tea
  • Making or baking: You might make a ‘Bride cake’ in the historic kitchen or a historically-inspired wedding garter… Choose from a brilliant range of fun activities to round off your day.
