What Makes York A Great Place For A Hen Weekend
York is building quite the reputation for being a good hen do location. It’s getting more and more popular each year with many ladies just falling in love with this place. What I really love about York is how the place has managed to keep a huge part of its old timey feel that its known for, but it also has been modernised quite a bit as well. In all there is no other place that is like York! So if a “different” hen weekend is what you are after then York is a great choice.
If you do want to do the whole “tourist” thing in York then a couple of fun places you might want to checkout are the historic York City Walls and the amazing All Saints Church which is a great place for a walk if you like to look at cool old buildings that have a ton of history behind them.
Eating & Shopping In York
There are many nice places where you ladies can go, have a nice meal and drink some good wine. Rustique is a fantastic restaurant that offers a very diverse menu of the finest French cuisine. This place is really popular so if you ladies want to eat here, I highly recommend that you book in advance. Delrio's Restaurant is a great Italian and with its menu that has traditional Italian favourites and some more exotic things as well, you have a place that has something for everyone.
As far as the shopping in York goes, this place is as classic Old English town centre as you can get. There are some great stores on the high street and there is also the fairly large Coppergate Shopping Centre as well.
How To Get To York
If you ask me, which you did not, but I will tell you ladies anyway. The easiest and most convenient way to get here for your hen weekend is on the train. The station is right bang in the middle of the place. For the most part you can get here very easily from the majority of the UK. Those of you coming from the North West may have to make a change or two.
Now, York may not be like London or Edinburgh when it comes to its nightlife, but read on down below and you will see that there are still many cool and fun places for you ladies to go.
This is a really cool nightclub and a great place for you ladies to party during your hen night, Kuda is a fairly new club and as a result the place is just state of the art. It has been designed very well with plenty of places to dance and grind up on the sexy locals as well as some areas where you ladies can enjoy a quiet cocktail. If you want a fun night out then, Kuda is a club that can more than deliver that.
York Theatre Royal
For a little bit of live entertainment its always worthwhile checking what kind of live show is on at the York Theatre Royal. This place plays home to a number of popular touring stage shows, comedians and even music acts. The actual venue its self is really cool and has that classic old timey theatre feel to it. So if you ladies want to be entertained before you hit the streets of York, York Theatre Royal is the place that can sure as hell entertain you.
Now this is what York is all about this Ghost Walk has been up and running for over 30 years and here you will get to learn all about the most haunted parts of the city! This is truly terrifying stuff and if you have a big scardy cat in your hen group watching their reactions is just as much fun as the actual ghost walk. What I love about this is the presentation and showman ship that you get from your guide. This is a fun……. But pants wetting scary night. You will certainly have earned your drinks when you hit the clubs after this!
Tokyo Nightclub Entry
This is one of the largest and most popular places to party in York, Tokyo is a place many hen parties will end up during a wild hen night in York. You get just an all-round great atmosphere in Tokyo and that makes it a great choice for you ladies! To make this even better we can arrange so that your whole hen group get on the guest list and that you can feel like you are VIP’s as you just tell the bouncer your name and stroll on in.
The Best Day Time Activities In York
York has a good mix when it comes to fun daytime activities and for you ladies I have four that have proven over the years to be very popular with hen groups.
High Ropes Course
A hen party is a time to do something that you ladies on a normal day would never in a million years do! A go on a high ropes course is just that type of thing. Here you ladies will need to try and conquer your fears as you navigate this tricky high ropes course. You will need to walk along floating balance beams, climb ladders and even use a zip wire! You will need to work together to give encouragement to those who are having a tough time with the course. This is a fun day out and once you finish the course you will feel like you can take on the whole freaking world!
You can do this in many different locations in Yorkshire, but it’s well worth the short drive from the centre of York. What I really love about canoeing as a hen do activity is that it gets you all outside and back to nature, but it can also be quite a calm and relaxing activity as well. You ladies will be taught how to handle a canoe and then along with a guide you will go on a nice, relaxing and fun ride down the river. This is a great way to make your hen do one to remember!
York is a really picturesque city and there is no better way to see this amazing place than with a fun treasure hunt! You ladies will need to work together and use your Charlie’s Angels skills to solve the riddles and figure out where the hell you are supposed to go next! Play in teams or as one huge group its whatever works best for your hen party. This is a great laugh and you can make it even more fun by really getting into the spirit and dressing up in some crazy costumes, this is not a requirement, but it does make things just that little bit more silly!
