Best British Cities to Hen Party by TNT

Here at Bijoux Hen Parties Ltd do love a lovely trip abroad, especially to Portugal to visit our sister company Pink Monkey Stag & Hen, however we are truly in Love with the beautiful places in the UK.

I came across this excellent article in TNT and thought I would share with you, as they are some my favourite cities in the UK.

Although hen weekends spent somewhere sunny are an attractive prospect, the extra cost, time and effort it takes to plan a trip abroad can often deter guests from attending.
The average cost of a hen party can easily be several hundred pounds or more. Add to that having to include flight costs and it can be too much for many. 
Research from mortgages provider Ocean Finance found that 28% of people couldn’t afford to attend their friend or relative’s hen party. So, if you want to make sure that everyone can attend your hen weekend, you might think about choosing a destination in the UK. Fortunately the UK has many great hen party destinations that more than suffice. 
Organisers of hen weekends, Maximise believe hen parties can look closer to home and still have a weekend to remember. They talk us through their top 5 most popular UK destinations for hen weekends. 


London is undoubtedly one of the UK’s best hen party destinations. The Capital has just about everything on offer to guarantee a perfect hen weekend, with some of the best shopping to be had in Europe by day, and by night West End shows,trendy cocktail bars and late night clubs. 
London is home to great landmarks, countless shops, boutiques and sightseeing opportunities, not to mention some of the world’s best hotels. Two of which, The Savoy and Claridge’s run sophisticated afternoon teas. If cucumber sandwiches aren’t really your thing why not attend a cocktail making class on the Thames
Average price of a glass of wine: £4


Newcastle was voted as the best University for nightlife in the UK. Not that you have to be a student to enjoy a night out on the Toon, the swanky Quayside is home to many trendy bars & restaurants. If there’s one thing the Geordies are known for more than throwing a great party, it’s their warmth and hospitality. 
Newcastle is a city that is bound to impressive even the most demanding of hens. If you arrive on the right weekend, you spend a day at the races at Newcastle Racecourse, or alternatively, you can look over a different type of stallion at our Hen life drawing classes. 
Average price of a glass of wine: £2.85


Mancunians are a fiercely proud people, and rightly so, Manchester is a city that can claim amongst its list of achievements; the industrial revolution, some of the best musicians in the world, and of course Emmeline Pankhurst, leader of the Suffragette movement.
Now Manchester can also claim to be the best hen party destination in the North-West (sorry Liverpool!). The city has world-class clubs, amazing restaurants and arguably the best shopping to be had in the country. Sip cocktails in The Fitzgerald, an uber-cool bar in the city’s Northern Quarter, or become a pro at making your own at our Great Gatsby cocktail making night. 
Average price of a glass of wine: £3.00


Nottingham may not seem like the obvious choice for a hen party weekend. However, you shouldn’t dismiss Nottingham too quickly as this East Midlands city strikes the perfect balance between history and beauty and has literally hundreds of exciting Hen activities. The city sits beside Sherwood Forest, which can a host an array of outdoor activities for hen parties. The city itself is home to some great hotels and restaurants. 
Of course, Nottingham more than holds its own when it comes to nightlife. For cocktails make sure you check out Tilt Bar, one of the most popular in the city, or Pepper Rocks, that serves £4.00 cocktails every night until 10pm. Alternatively, with Maximise you can sip champagne on board a riverboat cruise on the Trent or relive your youth by attending a spice girls dance party
Average price of a glass of wine: £2.85


The Welsh capital is one of the coolest and most interesting cities in the UK, so it's no surprise that Hen Weekends in Cardiff are becoming increasingly popular. 

Nowhere offers the chance to enjoy a last night of freedom like Cardiff. Its liveliest pubs and clubs are centred on St Mary Street, which becomes pedestrianised on Friday and Saturday nights. Hen party packages are a great way of seeing the very best bars, clubs and restaurants the city has to offer in one very memorable night out.

With Maximise you can enjoy playing ‘It's a Knockout' style Hen Welsh games such as Sheep Shenanigans, Drunk Dragons, Rugby Run. Alternatively, try your hand at mixing cocktails or have your own buff butler do it instead. 

Average price of a glass of wine: £2.65

We have a lot of Love for The Spice Girls!!!

So here at Bijoux Hen Parties Ltd HQ we have recently been listening to the music from our playlists from our dance hen parties.

And my ultimate favourite has defiantly been from the 90s!

So as a girl who was brought up in the 90s era, who was the best girl band of all time..... Spice Girls!!

So with a little Girl Power and sing along songs I have been inspired to have a Spice Girls dance hen party for my next birthday.

The girls will love it!!

Here at Bijoux, we not only cater for hen parties but also Birthday Parties, Corporate events or if you and your girls just want an affordable activity cause you need a fun way of catching up again.

Nottingham is the place to be in 2016!

So here at Bijoux HQ, we have noticed a massive surge in bookings and enquiries for our hen parties in Nottingham and with the Nottingham post writing an article about the influx of hen and stag parties coming to the city, I name it the place to be in 2016.

The home of Robin Hood plus many cool bars, restaurants and hotels in the city, I am not surprised it is as popular as the likes of London, Manchester, Bournemouth.

This year alone, Bijoux Hen Parties have hosted various Dance Hen Parties as well as Vintage Makeovers, Vintage Photoshoots and even a Stripper so far this year.

Due to having such an increase of bookings for Nottingham, we have taken on new staff in the city to enable us more availability.  Still have plenty of space for June - and if you book before May 31st for a hen party in June you will receive 10% off your final booking fee if you quote *blogmay*

So if you were looking for any of our hen party activities, then please contact us on and one of our team members will come back to you.

Rachel wanted something different for her hen night, something fun and light hearted that she would remember forever, so opted for one of our Cherry Vintage Photoshoot in Newcastle. 

Here is a quick sneaky preview from this weekends shoot -

Don't they all look fantastic... I love the matching outfits.  Rachel & her friends also opted to upgrade their photoshoot by adding Vintage Hair & Makeup.  I think they all look fab!

Here is a little feedback from Rachel following her shoot:

"Hi Kaylie,

I just wanted to email and say thank you for helping me organise an amazing Hen Do on Saturday.
Everyone had a great time and everyone was excellent - especially the hair stylist!
Our photographer and director were so great as well.

I received the photos last night, they are fantastic and everyone loves them.

Thank you for everything,

Where in the UK to have your hen do??

After lots of studies and from our parties which were booked in 2015, please see a list below of the top 10 destinations for hen parties in the UK.

Whether you want a drunken night out, dance hen party, or something more sophisticated with a make over or a photoshoot then we can accommodate in all of the below cities.

In fact the list might surprise you, it did me when we gathered the results.

1) BristolBristol has a long history of being a sea faring city and legend has it that the famous pirate, Blackbeard, was allegedly born in the city, near the old harbour.  The nightlife in Bristol is vibrant and very varied. Choose from pubs, gastro pubs, cocktail bars, comedy clubs, live music venues and theatre venues.

2) NewcastleNewastle famous for Cheryl Cole, Ant and Dec and made infamous by Geordie Shore.  Newcastle is a top destination for Hen Parties and unsurprisingly stag parties. Why aye man! The nightlife in Newcastle is legendary, the geordies sure know how to party. For the sophisticated head down to Central Station and Collingwood Street, known by the locals as "The Diamond Strip" rammed full of chic bars and clubs you can sip cocktails in style If your looking for a different younger crowd, The Gate can be the ideal place, located under one roof you can enjoy a range of restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs and a casino, whatever the weather!

3) Bournemouth With Seven miles of Golden sands and sparkling sea, the vibrant Cosmopoloton town of Bournemouth has something for every type of hen - a vast variety of shops to suit everyones shopping addiction, resturants and holiday accomodation, seafront hotels, quality B&B's, and a buzzing night life to finish of your hen party.  Get out in the fresh air of Bournemouth to wash away those fuzzing heads after a Friday Night with endless countryside with beautiful award winning gardens and watersports galore.

4) Cardiff:  This will be a very new location for Bijoux Hen Parties and watch this space for new parties to be released here.

5)  EdinburghThis amazing, ancient city dates back thousands of years and you can see that by it's incredible historic buildings.  Get lost in the tales of kings and legends. Go on a ghost tour (maybe you can sample some of the torture equipment on the naughtiest in your group) or go back in time on an historic walking tour, visit some of the beautiful parks or just fill your taste buds with some of the local food.  

6)  Brighton: 2016 seems to be the year for Brighton.  Brighton has the reputation for having some of the best nightclubs outside of London with top names DJ's playing in Brighton on a regular basis. The bars in Brighton are plentiful and geared for hen parties, after all what bars do not want a large group of fun loving ladies in their establishment? Brighton boasts more bars than days in the year, from cocktail to karaoke bars you will found a numbers of bars to suit all of your hen parties tastes.

7) Liverpool:  Voted best UK city and world capital city of pop, you’re sure to have a great weekend in Liverpool.
Take a walk along Liverpool’s beautiful waterfront, visit the Beatles story museum, check out the two cathedrals or even go to the beach. There’s so much to offer in this incredible city and it doesn't stop there, there are so many options for entertainment, from comedy clubs, theatre, football and of course the bars and clubs. There are 6 main districts packed with everything your heart could desire. You’re left feeling dizzy.

8) NottinghamNottinghams night life is very famous and the myth that there are 7 ladies to every man is still very popular, probably why the city is popular with stag parties. Nottingham has chain bars such as revolution and reflex bars, which are great for having a laugh with all your girlies.  Hockley is where all the sophisticated cocktail bars are located and is where the cool and trendy of Nottingham hang out. The Corner House is a purpose built complex that holds restaurants, bars, a casino and cinema, it is sophisticated and a must see for hen parties.

9) LondonLondon is full of bars with a bar type to suit everyone's taste, from the chain names such as Slug and Lettuce to up market cocktail bars and nightclubs.

New Hen Party Emojis

If you’re a chief hen planner, or know somebody about to tie the knot, it might be about time you download this handy little emoji set…
Strictly for convenience sake.
Red 7 have created the world’s first stag and hen emojis, which means what goes on tour might not necessarily stay on tour once the WhatsApp group gets wifi.
Complete with ‘L’ plates, a mankini, as well as the ever so classy blow-up doll, the hen party pack just got accessorised for your online planning endeavours:
stag hen emoji
According to the creators:
“We noticed there weren't any emojis that summed up the time-honoured tradition of a hen or stag party. Frankly, we thought that just wasn't good enough.
“So we decided to make our own emojis to capture the typical antics you get up to on this wildest of nights with your mates."
For more information on how you can embed, share and download these handy little icons, click here.
