Crumbs Cupcakery: Cupcake Decorating Tea Party

One of our personal favourite spots for a cup of tea and cake has to be Crumbs Cupcakery on College Street, right behind the York Minster and a 2 min stroll from our reception on Monkbar. For just £20 each, you can hire the tearoom for a Cupcake decorating tea party, for up to 12 people (minimum of 6). This includes 4 cupcakes each to decorate and take home, and afternoon tea which consists of finger sandwiches, crisps, brownie, mini cupcakes, scones and tea/coffee.

For the brave ones!

Gr8 Escape York

 ‘One hour is all you have to solve the various codes and puzzles to escape from York’s first live escape room. Be one of the first to try the new real life experience that is taking the world by storm. Work as a team to find the clues and swap ideas. Use your logic and take nothing for granted and remember the clock is ticking.’

Everyone has heard of Escape Rooms by now. They have become very popular in the last two years and we personally think they are a fantastic alternative hen party activity. Weddings can be stressful, but if you and your bridal party can beat the room and escape within the given time, then you can face any wedding hiccup that comes your way. For the competitive types, why not challenge your partners wedding party to race against?

Ghost Bus Tour

‘The York Ghost Bus Tours include exciting ghost stories both old and new, technical trickery, and professional actors who deliver an award winning comedy script.’

For the thrill seekers, why not hop aboard the Ghost Bus and learn about all the spooky horrors in York, whilst enjoying a tour around the city which lasts for approximately 1 hour 15 min. The ‘actors’ are fantastic (they’re so convincing you might think they are real ghosts), and the tour is great fun for everyone in your wedding party.

Your Hen Party wouldn’t be complete without an amazing place to rest your head afterwards. Budget hotels are often the go to choice for hen nights, but why settle for a tiny bedroom with en suite, when you can get a whole house for the same price each! We’d love to introduce our beautiful town house by the river in the city centre, Bennett House. It’s sleeps up to 16 people, has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large kitchen and dining area and most notably, you can rent it for just one night (or more)! Alternatively, you can choose from any of our other 11 apartments for smaller groups. For more information, call us on 01904 211020 or 0800 242 5450. Let us know how many people are in your party, and we will advise you to which one of our properties would be best suited for you!




We look forward to hearing from you!
