Top Ten

We've been established since 1999 and have hosted more than 300,000 people on thousands of unforgettable stag and hen weekends. From Ireland to the warm beaches of Puerto Banus, LNOF predicts 2020 will see the return of some old classics, as well as a rise in hen 'staycations'. With only three locations from overseas featured on the list, it looks like the UK is on the rise when it comes to that all important Last Night of Freedom.

1.

Dublin

The Temple Bar pub lit up at night

A popular choice year after year, Dublin remains supreme champion when it comes to hen weekends and it’s easy to see why. With its excellent shopping, world-famous Temple Bar and Guinness galore, the Fair City is the perfect place to celebrate your last days of singledom. Check out our Ultimate Dublin Hen Do Guide to find out more.

2.

Newcastle

Howay man! We’re proud of our hometown, which is a permanent fixture on the top 10 list, year in year out. Not only is this gorgeous city home to some of the best bars and clubs in the world, it will spoil any hen group for choice with its selection of 250 activities. But it’s not just things to do, Newcastle also boasts some lush places to stay – the top of our list is without a doubt, the gorgeously quirky 'Through the Looking Glass' apartment at Honeypot House.

3.

Liverpool

Liverpool’s Liver Building lit up purple at night.

Another non-mover on the list is the beautiful city of Liverpool. This warm, funny and passionate place ticks all the boxes for a hen party looking for a fun time. Scousers love a drink and they don’t disappoint with their choice of activities. They've also got accommodation options which are perfect for large groups. Our recommended pick and LNOF best seller is the Picturehouse Apartments, purpose built apartments within an old cinema.

4.

Edinburgh

View of the Edinburgh Old Town at dusk, with the castle lit up in the background.

A permanent fixture on the top locations for hen parties is the Scottish gem of Edinburgh. Steeped in history with fantastic shopping and thriving nightlife, there’s something for everyone. Shop ‘til you drop on Princess Street before heading to the New Town in the evening and party the night away at the ultra-stylish Shanghai club. Or, if you're looking for something a little different, why not joint the city's silent disco crawl, which winds its way through the Edinburgh's historic streets - definitely a unique way to find your way around!

5.

Brighton

View of Brighton Pier from the beach at dusk with the sun setting behind the sign

Brighton has secured its place in our top 10 for a third year running, becoming one of our top-selling destinations. This seaside haven is filled with interesting things to see and do and is perfect for the quirky hen do, looking to stray from the beaten path. However, if you're looking for the more 'traditional hen do' then we would definitely recommend the topless barman cocktail workshop at The Copper Rooms. Pecs and Prosecco, what's not to love?

6.

Barcelona

A view of the Barcelona skyline during the day with a colourful mosaque wall in the fore-ground.

This colourful Catalan city boasts some of the most iconic tourist attractions in the world, perfect for insta-loving group! Barcelona is a firm favourite with hen dos and it’s no surprise considering the cheap flights and great hotels – we recommend the W Hotel. But the fun doesn't stop there, with almost 100 activities to choose from, you'll be looking for the nearest bench for a sit down.

7.

Manchester

Manchester city centre lit up at night.

Climbing one place since last year, Manchester never fails to disappoint with its wealth of nightlife and impressive hen do activities (including indoor skydiving for the more adventurous hen group). With transport links from most areas of the UK, Manchester is easy to get to - especially if your hens are spread out all over the place. There's also a range of accommodation options from big budget to hostels. Our best seller and most recommended place to stay is the City Stop Apartments, conveniently located in the heart of the city.

8.

Cardiff

A view of Cardiff waterfront lit up at night.

The picturesque city of Cardiff may look serene, but its nightlife is anything but. This Welsh hive of activity is bursting with more than 150 hen do activities including white water rafting and Spice Girls Dance Class. There's also great places to stay with options to suit all budgets and tastes. So what are you waiting for? Spice up your life (well, hen do) and get booking!

9.

Marbella

A view of the Puerto Banus marina from across the water.

Forget no carbs before Marbs, grab yourself a Margarita girl and have a good time! Located on the sun-drenched coast of the Costa del Sol, the sunny coastal town of Marbella has made a triumphant return to the top 10, and deservedly so. With excellent travel links and sun, sea and sexy señor’s, this popular holiday destination is the perfect place to host a party-filled hen weekend.

10.

London

A view of London lit up at night with Tower Bridge in the foreground.

Dropping three places from last year, London has clung onto the top 10 with its hen friendly activities and endless famous landmarks for those all-important snaps for the ‘gram. With everything from a champagne view from The Shard, to cabaret shows, London town has something for everybody and will certainly not leave your hen group disappointed.

If one of your besties is getting hitched and it’s up to you to sort the hen – why not use our top 10 for a bit of inspiration? Alternatively, if none of our most popular spots caught your eye, why not have a look at our 56 other hen party locations and create your own bespoke hen do package.
