Organising a Hen Party with 4charter
Your wedding day is one of the most important events in your life, but before the wedding itself there’s another important event: your hen party. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy some intimate quality time with your closest female friends and family members before you get married. In recognition of the importance of this occasion, many brides-to-be are getting on board with a new trend towards adventurous hen parties that make the “last day of freedom” a unique and truly memorable experience, full of fun, friendship, and laughter.
Sailing On Board the Alice
Sailing the Solent on our chartered yacht is the perfect mix of fantastic fun and a fascinating learning opportunity, providing all members of the party with the chance to learn some exciting new skills, and sharing the experience with close friends and family. You’ll strengthen your friendships, discover skills you never knew you had, and enjoy a wide range of activities, both on board the Alice and on the shores of the Solent.
At 4Charter we can provide you with a customised itinerary that fits in with the needs of your hen party, so you can choose a range of activities that everyone is sure to enjoy, and still keep within your budget.

The Weekend Hen Party: A Sample Itinerary
Your journey starts on a Friday evening near the Spinnaker Tower, one of the region’s most famous landmarks. The Alice is moored near this spectacular viewing tower, at Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth. On Friday, you and your friends will enjoy a meal on board the Alice, and can then opt to spend the rest of the night partying at Tiger Tiger, a fabulous nightspot with a disco, tiki bar, and oceanside terrace.
On Saturday, you’ll start the day with a real treat: a chance to take in the stunning panoramic views atop the Spinnaker Tower, widely regarded as one of the best viewing towers in the country. After a group photo to mark the event, it’s time to head back to the Alice for the next stage of the trip: a slow and gentle scenic cruise to Cowes. For the more adventurous travellers, there’s also the chance to spend some time aboard our nifty little 50mph RIB speedboat.
In Cowes, you’ll disembark for the afternoon to spend a few hours, Perhaps a preliminary visit to the Royal Ocean Racing Club where you can view Alice moored at Trinity Wharf, then explore the picturesque town, before returning to the Alice to sail up the Medina—and to see the bride-to-be walk the plank! Next on the agenda is another night of fun, this time at The Folly Inn, a gorgeous little riverside pub with a relaxed atmosphere and a great menu, before heading back to the Alice to round out the evening.
Sunday is the final day of the hen party adventure, starting with breakfast aboard the Alice, as we cruise down the Medina on the return journey to Portsmouth. If you’re feeling under the weather after dancing till late, the bracing air and stunning views of the approach to Gun Wharf Quay are the perfect antidote. Our journey ends early in the afternoon, with a late lunch or one last drink to finish off a perfect weekend.
