So you are the Maid of Honour and one of your key decisions is sorting the Hen do, after all you want to give the bride a good party to remember.
Picking the right location is key, your never going to pick the right location to suit everyone but if you can get one that the Hen likes and please the majority you are onto a winner.
According to data analysed by Red7 Liverpool came out on top as the best Hen Party destination to visit.
The top five UK destinations for hens in 2018 were:
Liverpool even came in third place as the most popular hen destinations in Europe, beating traditional places like Ibiza and Benidorm.
In fact, Liverpool was nearly four times as popular than both London and Benidorm with the UK’s brides-to-be.
Sarah Chapman, Head of Hen, Stag and Sten at Red7, explained: “Liverpool is a fashionable destination with great shopping as well as trendy bars and restaurants.
“A real shift is taking place in terms of what hens and stags want from their pre-wedding party. We have noticed that, over recent years, hens are steering away from hotels and opting for other types of accommodation such as apartments, villas and houses.
“Whilst a big night out in an exciting city centre is still seen by many as an essential, more groups want to spend time ‘in’ together. Hotels mean that groups are separated into different rooms, but Liverpool is full of beautiful, modern apartments.
“A lot of our hens have entertainment come directly to them – like cheeky butlers, private chefs, yoga classes and pampering sessions.
“We expect this trend to continue in 2019. A few years ago, celebrity trends had more of an influence and many of our hens wanted their travel to reflect reality shows such as TOWIE. Our trips to Essex were flying off the shelves.
“I feel that, today, people want to create their own unique experience. Liverpool is perfect for that – it can be whatever you want it to be.”
