A Victwardian Escapade a remarkably different hen party
Take a step back in time to bygone plasures ... a delightful mix of below-stairs industriousness and upstairs luxury.
On arrival, everyone dresses as servants to do some of the household chores, perhaps prepare a a dessert, have a chamber pot race, light the fire etc., with the emphasis very much on fun rather than work.
Then move to the dressing room and everyone changes attire to become ladies before moving upstairs to the drawing room for some parlour games, a dance and of course the inevitable photoshoot.
Finish with afternoon tea in the dining room - where you have the honour of being the guests at a rather grand tea party.
Situated at Clonard House, 10 minutes from Bloomfield House Hotel.
