An adventure abroad or UK based party? Not sure where to go ...
First off it’s important to recognise that the UK offers many of the greatest hen weekend experiences on the planet and for many it’s the best and most convenient place to party. Additionally with the huge number of direct international flights, Europe and further afield also offer some exciting and easily accessible destinations.
The setting for your hen weekend is key; it needs to work for popularity, content and budget. Along with the bride-to-be you might want to consult some of the girls to gauge the appetite for travel. If you get an idea of preferences it can really help to narrow down hen locations and you can make a decision that the majority are likely to be happy with. Maybe there’s a connection to a location through history or climate or a preferred activity or it’s simply somewhere the bride’s always wanted to go, maybe you just want to outdo the stag – all of these things can help with you decide on final choices.
The UK has some amazing cities for partying in, like London of course and the hen heavyweights of Manchester, Brighton and Edinburgh, but there are a host of others that offer every bit as much as the big guns and often at excellent value; think Cardiff, Newcastle and Bournemouth for starters. As far as highly qualified endorsement goes UK hen weekends consistently account for the highest proportion of hen weekends, at least 9 out of 10 hen parties will opt to stay in the UK.
If you are intending to go abroad the first important consideration are the flights (and flight times), they obviously add some initial expense but this can be off-set by cheaper on-the-ground expenses, Prague, Budapest and Lisbon (currently one of Europe’s cheapest) immediately come to mind.
Whatever you decide on absolutely the most important of all is the itinerary and the planning. With top preparation you can build a fabulous hen weekend in any destination but with poor planning you can have a shocker in what should be a superb location.
