If you’re a bridesmaid to a bride-to-be, you’ll know the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Never mind choosing THE perfect wedding dress, memorising your vows, or deciding on the best DJ to keep your mates on the dance floor all night – try having to organise all the added extras (AKA the hen-do of dreams) on top.
There's no sooner time as a bridesmaid than to get your hen do planning on stat. Whilst international travel is allowed again, take our advice – minimise your stress (and that of everyone attending) and opt for a hen do celebration on home soil. It’ll be no less epic than the bride deserves and, although we can’t guarantee you’ll have the sunshine you’d have in Marbs, we can guarantee it will be an unforgettable weekend.
Whilst rounding up the very best hen do destinations in the UK, we’ve found something for every type of bride – and every type of hens. Does she want the whole residence to yourselves, is she hoping for a night out in the clubs of Manchester, or does she have her heart set on a seaside escape? We've got you covered. Our edit of UK hen do destinations are not only chic, stylish and worthy of a spot on your Instagram feed (in true GLAMOUR style, of course) - but they also won't break the bank. Result.
As for Insta worthy locations, how does renting an entire Scottish castle to yourselves sound? This 16th century castle is up for hire for a weekend of country walks, DMCs by the fireplace(s) and boujee dinner parties - all in honour of the bride to be and 13 of her gal pals.
We've also got a London party pad, a campsite in the woods for getting back to nature (just add glamping bell tents). With staycations still being very much ‘in’ throughout 2022, we recommend getting the WhatsApp group fired up and booking before it's too late. All of our picks have availability from the time we picked them.
P.S. Don't forget to use our Airbnb discount codes when you book your UK hen do destination and save a few ££.
