Drinking based hen do activities in Leeds:

Drink a few too many bubbles at one of Leeds' Bottomless Brunch spots. The places we seem to return to time and time again (hen do or not!) are Manahatta, IF Up North and Mans Markets, although there are so many great places across the city.
Discover if white, red or rose is your preferred tipple at wine tasting at Veeno. Depending on the size of your group, you're able to hire an intimate corner, or the entire space out depending on your party size. There is other venues across Leeds that do wine tasting like Lazy Lounge, Lattitude, The Decanter and more!
Wine tasting makes a really classy hen do activity, and we even included one as part of a hen do food tour recently in Leeds.
