Back to Inspirations
Gone are the days of the archetypal hen night when girls staggered around town in pink tutus and L plates. Today's brides are looking for something different and choosing sophisticated breaks that will give them quality time and fun with their close friends. Activities from shopping and cocktail making to four wheel driving are now an integral part of these girlie weekends and combined with fine dining and some “me” time for everyone in stylish surroundings, they create a hen break to remember. Brides have lots to organise and with this in mind some hotels have created packages which are great for hen parties and appeal to all tastes.
Grand Jersey

Take a short flight to the sun for a pick and mix choice of treats at The Grand Jersey. View your favourite film with a champagne supper in the private cinema, host a pre-dinner cocktail party or enjoy a champagne afternoon tea after a luxurious spa treatment. You can even book a suite with interconnecting rooms to keep the party going.

Quebecs Hotel

In the heart of Leeds and 5 minutes from the Victorian Quarter known as the Knightsbridge of the North, Quebecs is a peaceful oasis. Hens will love their ‘Shop Till You Drop' weekend which includes champagne on arrival and Harvey Nichols vouchers before you head out to wherever in this vibrant city as the mood takes you.

The Feversham Arms & Verbena Spa

If you fancy mixing fresh air and walking with good food and spa treatments the ‘Muddy Boots' package at The Feversham Arms is perfect. They pack a warming picnic and supply maps of walks in the Dales and when you return you can indulge in some soothing relaxing treatments in the spa before enjoying a superb dinner.
