Top 5 activities for large groups

blog 9


Having a large group can be great as you have all your friends and family with you for a weekend.  However there is one major drawback, what to do over the weekend.  Lots of spas and activities like cocktail classes work really well for group of 8 -10 but as groups get larger and larger your options become more limited.  So we’ve been discussing in the office the best 5 activities to do when you have a large group.

Firstly what’s a ‘large’ group.  Well our average group size is 14 so we see that as quite normal, but we define a large group as over 20 people.

So here are our Top 5 activities for large groups :


Thermae Bath Spa

Spa’s are a very popular option with our groups and it’s very tricky to find ones that cater for larger groups.  The Thermae Bath Spa is a perfect venue for you if you have a large or small group.  Due to it’s size the spa can hold hundreds of people at any one time.  The only draw back with the spa is it is incredibly popular and gets very busy at weekends but it’s a fantastic venue.


Private Treasure hunts

One of our most popular activities in 2014 has been the private treasure hunts.  Available in all our cities the treasure hunt consistently gets a great feedback and is an activity which gets better the more people you have.  You’ll be split into teams so the more people you have the more teams.

Westcountry games

Fast becoming a favourite in the Bath/Bristol area is the Westcountry Games.  A modern twist on ‘It’s a knockout’ the west country games cater perfectly for big groups.  You can combine the activity with a picnic lunch with cider.


Murder Mystery Evenings

Murdery mystery events is one of our most asked for evening activities but as we mainly offer it as a private event and you will normally require at least 14 people it do we don’t get a huge numbers of groups booking it.  The more people in the group the cheaper the activity becomes.


Dance lessons

Again this activity can work really well with large and small groups but with large groups the choreography options open up and can make the session a lot of fun.  There are always options to video the end result and also put together a bespoke routine that can be performed at the wedding!!
