If you live in York, then you don’t need to tell that it’s a popular choice for hen parties – and it’s no surprise that the historic city’s cobbled streets are a popular choice for gals to celebrate their last few days of freedom. It has boozy bottomless brunches, sophisticated restaurants, and many beautiful boutique hotels.
Ginger Ray, a party decoration company conducted the research that named York as one of the top destinations for hen parties in the UK. It beat out bigger cities like Leeds, London, Manchester and Glasgow to become the place to enjoy a gals weekend.
The researchers were looking for a range of factors to score every city on as the bar scenes, brunches, group activities and spas – which we can all agree York has in abundance.

According to York Mix, Hen goer Tanya told the researchers why they picked York. “We were looking for a location that wasn’t too far from home as the hen is from Holmfirth but also striking the balance of somewhere we don’t visit often.
“We were all in agreement that there’s so much to see and do in York and it’s a huge bonus that the city isn’t too big so it will be easy to explore! We know first-hand how brilliant the atmosphere can be too.”
