Whether you’re the bride to be, chief bridesmaid or maid of honour, if you’ve been given the task of arranging the hen party, it’s an important responsibility. No matter where you are, or where you go, planning a stag and hen party is a bit tricky since you’ll need to have some key ingredients. Whether it’s a spa day, a nightclub, or the best Strippers Perth or your local strip club will offer you, you only get one chance to get it right, and getting it wrong can really mess up your night! Location is key and whilst there are European cities which are now known as being top choices for hen or stag nights, there are just as many fantastic places in the UK you and your friends can have the time of your lives as part of the preparation for the big day. Plan in advance with accessories and supplies from and get ready for some fun.

  1. Glasgow

Known around the world as a city which always has a party atmosphere, you’ll be warmly welcomed in the bars and restaurants of Glasgow. Spend a weekend there and combine beauty therapy sessions at a spa hotel, some retail therapy in Buchanan Galleries or the Princes Square Shopping Centre and then dance the night away in the vibrant clubs. For something a little quirky, drink at the longest Victorian island bar still in existence at The Horse Shoe on Drury Street.

  1. Edinburgh

It’s not possible to mention Glasgow without then talking with as much enthusiasm about the beautiful Edinburgh. Perfect for those wanting a particularly cultural hen party as well as great places to drink and late night venues to hit the dance floor, Edinburgh is a stunning location. If you want a place to enjoy a cocktail or three which is a bit out of the ordinary, then it has to be the Frankenstein bar at 26 George IV Bridge. As well as being happy to organise a hen night itinerary for you, they also have a ‘Bier Keller’ complete with German lager and an Oompah band playing live every weekend.

  1. Bristol

Pack your suitcases full of tiaras, sashes and angel wings from and head to Bristol and you’ll have memories to last a lifetime. It’s the place to go for those wanting an adrenalin-filled experience as you can go quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, hire tandem bikes or take a boat trip around the harbour. If you like a little flutter in the evening, head to the casino, or alternatively for a themed evening, spend your time aboard the permanently moored Dutch barge The Apple bar at Welsh Back which is famous for only selling cider; albeit a huge range which will appeal to every taste in the group.

  1. Bath

Bath may be the location for quintessentially British architecture and a history of a genteel time of a bygone era but it doesn’t mean it will be a dull place for a hen party. Spend a few nights exploring the streets made famous in countless films and TV shows, take some time out in the thermal spas, head to the local organic vineyard for a tour, cruise the river on the oldest electric launch boat the Lady Lena complete with champagne and cream tea and in the evening hire a karaoke pod and sing your hearts out.

  1. York

Combine a buzzing student scene with a magnificent backdrop and hens will return home knowing that a visit to York was the perfect way to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of the bride to be. There’s plenty of bars to spend the evening in but a great way to have some fun in the day is for the group to take part in a Pole Dancing class. Limber up and learn some moves you can then impress everyone with in the evening when you’re out on the town.
