Is your bride-to-be more Bollinger than Baby Guinness shots? Perhaps her idea of a night out begins with champagne and canapes and ends with her taking her make-up off? Yep, believe it or not, there are actually people out there who do that. Fear not though, we have a whole host of classy hen party locations in the UK that are guaranteed to be a big hit.

Bath

Sophisticated, stylish and super fun – Bath is a great choice to say cheers to your last night of freedom. At night, award-winning bars and restaurants come alive and, in the day, you’ve got a choice of shopping, sightseeing or even the races. Head just outside of the city centre and you’ll find lovely towns and villages packed with 5* spas and gastropubs. Yes please.

York 

You only have to look at picture-perfect York and its cobblestone streets to realise that this is one of the best places for classy hen parties. Forget about late-night clubs and dirty breakfasts to wash away the hangover. Here, the streets are lined with incredible architecture, fine dining establishments and hen party activities with a little extra flair. 

Bristol 

Bristol offers character, charm and lots of culture. If art and entertainment are your thing, you won’t be disappointed and a growing foodie scene is firmly putting the city on the map. Of course, nights out here are loud and fun but there’s also lots of live music bars and comedy venues that mean you’ll definitely be coming back for more. 

London 

It’s the capital city for good reason, and the Queen herself lives here, so it’s got to be classy, right?! There’s also plenty of hen do ideas – think sightseeing, michelin star eating, theatre trips and even a personal shopping experience in one of the department stores. Oh, and there’s lots of places perfect for a hen party afternoon tea. 

Edinburgh

From one capital city to another – this time in Scotland. As a hen party destination, this is one of the best with lots of shopping, culture and food-based hen do activities. Even better, it usually takes a few hours to get there which is the perfect amount of time to enjoy some fizz on the train!

The Peak District

Your pre wedding celebrations don’t always have to be about shots, bars and clubs. Instead, they can be wholesome, relaxing and a great excuse to explore some of the UK’s best landscapes. The Peak District offers exactly this and there’s lots of hen party ideas like white water rafting and wild swimming which are a great way to let off steam before the big day.  

The Cotswolds 

If city breaks aren’t top of your list, why not choose a hen do destination that’s officially registered as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? And no, we’re not talking about the beach clubs in Puerto Banus. Instead, stay in the UK and head to the Cotswolds to explore quaint towns and villages, delicious food markets and incredible pubs and restaurants around every corner.
