We’re super proud of our Geordie Homeland, Newcastle, and it comes as no surprise to us to see it sail straight to the top of the ranks. This wonderfully cosmopolitan city is packed with gorgeous architecture, fabulous shopping districts – including the world-famous Metrocentre – swanky bars and massive clubs. Trust us, there’s no better celebration than a hen weekend in The Toon.

02. Delicious Dublin

Dublin is a hen do haven – and our hens love it. This beautiful city has shot up to second place; it’s swish, sophisticated and home to a legendary nightlife (namely, The Temple Bar). This drinking district is widely regarded as the centre of the party – with amazing restaurants, bouncing bars and non-stop party atmosphere. You are sure to have the ultimate hen weekend in ‘The Fair City’.

03. Marvellous Marbs
