When you’re given the responsibility of organising a hen party for your sister, best mate or daughter, it doesn’t have to be as stressful as you may perceive it to be. Regardless of whether you’re planning a night on the town or a weekend away, if you stay organised and take it a step at a time, it will all fall into place and be a party to remember.

While weekends abroad are an attractive option, they aren’t always possible if you have a specific budget to stick to. Breaks in the UK don’t have to cost a fortune, with plenty of appealing destinations waiting for you. Travelodge offers great deals on group accommodation in the UK; the chances of finding an affordable hotel in whatever city you choose are highly likely.

The main thing you need to decide, before arranging the personal touches, is the budget and the destination. Once the budget is decided and you have informed guests of how much the hen do should roughly cost, it’s time to sift through the various locales to find one that’s perfect for your group. If you need a little inspiration, the following places at home, and abroad, could be ideal.


No list like this can be complete without London. A perfect place for the girls to let their hair down and appreciate some quality time, there’s something for everyone in our capital. From afternoon tea at The Ritz to an evening at the theatre, whatever your style, you’re sure to find something that all the hens can get their teeth stuck into, literally and figuratively!


Whether you’re looking for a little pampering or you want to while away the hours on the pier or the beach, Brighton is a superb destination if you’re hoping for something quintessentially British. There’s plenty on offer with regards to nightlife too, from cabarets to nightclubs, there’s never a dull moment in this buzzing seaside town.


The Scottish capital really comes alive during the summer months, with a myriad of festivals to enjoy as part of your visit. From cultural walks around the beautiful castle that towers over the city below, to sampling the fabulous dining and drinking venues, a weekend in Edinburgh is an absolute must, whether it’s as a hen destination or otherwise.


As one of the party capitals of the UK, Cardiff is a hub for hens and stags aplenty. Offering you plenty of activities to occupy your days, from outdoor adventures to spas and shops galore, before heading out to paint the town red as darkness falls.


If you’re hoping to venture further than UK shores, the cultural city of Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, has something for everyone to enjoy. From the myriad of interesting museums to admiring the Astronomical Clock, your days can be filled with Eastern European fun. Let’s not forget the fantastic nightlife on offer, with plenty of alternative venues to explore.

With so many destinations available, only you will know what the bride-to-be will love. If you decide to stay in the UK, Travelodge offers great deals on group accommodation in the UK to help you organise a hen party to remember forever.
