LNOF Guide to York
Take in some culture by choosing York for your hen weekend.
York is a real favourite of ours: a strikingly picturesque city of great history and even greater bars. If it’s towering steeples, lush green riverbanks and antique shops full of character that do it for you, be prepared to drool. York is easy to get to, difficult to get lost in and virtually impossible not to like. With LNOF as your Minster guides, we just know you’ll get the York hen weekend you’ve always wanted.
Expect an impressive array of welcoming riverside beer gardens, great value cafes or eateries, and jaw-dropping landmarks while you're raising hen weekend hell in York. There's plenty of quality shopping options to tempt your group, a consistent level of genuine local hospitality wherever you go, a filling portion of fine restaurants and a generous helping of both serious and cheese-specialist clubs to check out too - just when you thought the city was about ready to go to bed. Set in such a modern riverside, area against one of the country’s most famous historical backdrops, can only mean pure gold when it comes to a flying visit to celebrate your last night of freedom. Ouse going to argue with that?
We did the naked chocolatier party on my friend's hen do - chocolate and naked men, what's not to love?
York is a sumptuous, serene city of magnificent spires, leafy lanes and conversation-inspiring pubs. The city's reputation as the most haunted one in the UK means that there are several ghost tours on offer, though it's the spirits on the shelves of every inn that will be closest to your heart during the hen weekend in York. There's no shortage of photograph opportunities, whilst the city's inhabitants are always an interesting mixture of tourists, students and locals who will happily help you drink the contents of each bar dry.
York is a fully-fledged sophisticate, complete with Cathedral, unrivalled tea rooms (including the world famous Bettys), history by the bucket-load, good clubs, classy shops and a diverse selection of public houses to boot. You can sit and chat about your latest clothing capture in one of many quality cafes, chew the fat over the declining standards of popular music in any number of attractive eateries, or discuss the merits of sending your children to ballet school by the banks of the river. It doesn't matter whether you simply want to dunk your fries in some barbecue sauce while you order your ninth Bacardi Breezer - York has as much, or as little culture as you desire.
