Just because you’ve got a hen weekend to plan, that doesn’t mean you have to spend over the odds to fly over to another country. Who says you can’t have an epic hen do in the UK? The United Kingdom is home to some of the best cities and counties, all of which are unique and offer once in a lifetime experiences for you and your girls.


Manchester is probably one of the most popular destinations for hen parties, what with the many amazing activities to make it a weekend to remember. Regardless of whether your girls fancy doing the more traditional hen activities, or even if they’d prefer to explore the Mancunian city for a while, the metropolitan borough has something for every personality. The wine tasting sessions in Manchester are the perfect way to kick things off on your hen, and you’ll get to taste specially selected authentic wines from around the world; perhaps followed by some good grub at a local restaurant.


As a beach destination in the UK, it is no wonder that Brighton is one of the best hen do locations. Known for its bohemian and chic atmosphere, this city is the ultimate place to be to experience some serious pampering. From tucking into a spot of lunch, to getting all glammed up and ready for your very own professional photo shoot, no two hen weekends in Brighton are the same! If you and the girls are in the party mood, you’ll find plenty of chilled out bars along the seafront – or perhaps you fancy experiencing an adrenaline rush… Why not put speed to the test in a session of buggy racing or powerboating?


Liverpool is a haven for hen dos and last nights of freedom, with an abundance of bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants to immerse yourselves into. As one of the best locations in the UK, it’s cheap and cheerful and with a legendary night life scene! Famous is its superb sense of humour, a Liverpool hen weekend is the perfect excuse to indulge in a few nights out at the local comedy clubs. For lovers of all great music, you can’t visit Liverpool without experiencing some of The Beatles’ culture; with tours of all the famous spots like Penny Lane and Strawberry Field.


London is the ultimate city for ladies who love to shop ‘til they drop, drink cocktails and dance into the early hours of the morning. With any hen do in London, you should expect a beautiful historic city, decorated with plenty of hidden gems and lots of character. No visit to the capital city is complete without a trip down Oxford Street, where you’ll get to experience all of London’s delights, including some of the best restaurants in the city! Fancy a chance to have a decent catch-up with your gal pals? Why not indulge yourselves in a fabulous five star spa? It’s the perfect way to banish all of that wedding stress. If it’s the nightlife you’ve come to London for, you won’t be disappointed. It’s time to get glammed up for your night on the town as you hit up some of the UK’s best bars and clubs!


Unbeknownst to many people, Newcastle is one of the most culturally diverse locations in the UK. So what better place to spend your last few days of freedom?! As one of Britain’s most popular cities, this is the best place for those of you who fancy spending a few hours catching up with the girls, basking in the city’s beauty. If you are looking for something different on your hen weekend, Newcastle has it. How does wine tasting with the girls sound? Or perhaps you’d prefer drinking the hard stuff at a local cocktail bar or beach club? No two hen weekends are the same here, so you’ll have plenty to brag about!
