For something a to get the adrenaline firing, you’re going to want to try 4x4 driving. This exciting activity allows you and the girls to get off the beaten track on rugged 4x4’s, journeying through the 250-acre estate of breath-taking Yorkshire Countryside.

The olympic sport of Clay Pigeon Shooting is also available at Carlton Towers. To try this exciting activity, your goal will be to shoot clay discs after they are shot into the sky. You must shoot them before they hit the ground, meaning that you have to bring your A-game if want to succeed. If you are new to the sport, you can rest easy as an expert instructor will be on-site to ensure a safe environment.

Cooking Classes

At the Carlton School Of Food, you can take a cooking masterclass on your hen party!

Cooks are a cooking school that call Carlton Towers home, taking daily classes with novice and accomplished chefs alike, giving an opportunity for foodies to mingle and friends to bond over a bubbling pan.

The kitchens at Cooks are both historic and hi-tech, offering endless classes on a diverse range of dishes. For those that like savoury dishes, you can learn how to prepare and cook seafood, or learn how to use spices. Alternatively, for those with a sweet-tooth, you can learn how to make chocolate, fresh-baked bread or exquisite iced cake! All these classes will be taken by expert butchers, chefs, bakers and chocolatiers!

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Teas are held in the chic and stylish Duchesses Dining Room, a spacious room which can seat up to 20 people, and has a quaint atmosphere that helps to promote conversation.

After your Half Day Baking Experience at Cooks, the elegant pastries and cakes you have created will be thoughtfully presented for you and your girls to sample. Hopefully, sampling some of your own handiwork will go down well with the girls! Regardless of their reaction, a glass of Prosecco will be provided by the staff to toast your efforts.

What’s more, delicious finger sandwiches and a variety of other handmade cakes & pastries created by the Carlton Towers team will be also provided, so don’t feel under pressure that the girls will go hungry if your baking skills aren’t up to much!

    This place is unreal! Came for a hen do and had the best time ever. Exceeded all expectations. It takes your breath away just driving up to the entrance. The staff couldn't do enough for you. We got a tour when we arrived by the lovely and very knowledgable Claire and even met Lord Gerald out in his vineyard who was so down to earth and friendly. Dave who worked through the night was so accommodating and made the evening so much fun. We were lucky enough to see him again at breakfast and again his attention was fantastic. Phil in the kitchen helped us to continue our fun and ensured Clive took centre stage in the cooking class whilst also being able to share his expertise. Lisa was so so helpful, getting things prepped and making sure we had everything we needed. What would we all have done without her?! And Charlotte who helped organise and coordinate our experience... it has been amazing thank you so much. We could have stayed at many a different hotel but we decided to try something different. We are so glad we did. This is not a hotel it is a home and the Lord Gerald and the staff make it your home for the visit. You would not get that personal touch at a random hotel. You made the stay what it was and we cannot thank you enough. More people need to know about you and I'm going to tell them all!!
