Five UK Cities for a Brilliant Hen Weekend

If you’re a bridesmaid of a bride-to-be, you’ll be no stranger to the stress of planning a wedding during the global pandemic. From finding the perfect wedding dress online and having to rearrange dates and supplier bookings – weddings for 2020 and 2021 have been, let’s face it, a little ‘messy’.

Although travel restrictions have now been lifted in many countries, our bridal parties are still not fully confident that their international hen weekends will go ahead. With that in mind, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have pulled together a list of their top five UK cities for an unforgettable hen weekend with your girl gang.

1. Brighton

Brighton is one of the most fun places to enjoy a hen weekend in the UK and is a treasure chest of things to see and do. With beautiful beaches, boutique shopping and countless venues offering cocktail making classes, brunches, afternoon teas and karaoke, you and your girls will have the best time in this city from day to night.  

2. Manchester

If you’re looking for a hen weekend that offers both relaxation and a glamorous party scene, then Manchester is the city for you. With a variety of spa hot spots and luxurious restaurants and cocktail bars, you and your girls can get dressed up to the nines and get up to all kinds of mischief in this booming city. 

3. Newcastle

If you and your girls are after a Bridesmaids style, unforgettable night out, then hit the toon in Newcastle! Experience the infamous Geordie night out and enjoy quadruple drinks in the best bars in the country. You could also take part in a river boat party cruise, arrange a butler in the buff or even book your very own party bus – what happens in Newcastle, stays in Newcastle… 

4. Bath

Bath recently came out on top as the best hen party city in the UK and we’re not surprised! With one in four venues providing a bottomless brunch and over a quarter of the city’s restaurants being group friendly, it’s no wonder this beautiful city has attracted hen parties from the UK and beyond. With a slightly more sophisticated style, Bath is renowned for its natural hot springs, historic architecture, and exciting nightlife. 

5. Cardiff

Known as the party capital of Wales, it’s no surprise that Cardiff is a popular spot for bridal parties. Offering a great shopping scene, white water rafting, gorge walking, canoeing, laser tagging, quad bike racing and caving – there’s so much to get up to in this lively city!
