Why Edinburgh Is A Great Place For A Hen Do
Edinburgh is such an easy city to get around with the bars and clubs in popular areas such as the Grassmarket, Rose Street and Cowgate to name a few, all within walking distance of each other. This historic city also has fantastic shopping for the hens to check out if you fancy a relaxing break from the party atmosphere.
Edinburgh is Scotland’s number one tourist city. People from all over the world come here to do the whole tourist thing. So if you want to check out some of Edinburgh’s history or just get a great selfie then places like Mary Kings Close and of course the world famous, Edinburgh Castle should be on your hit list.
Getting To Edinburgh
If there was an award for easiest places in the UK to get to then Edinburgh would certainly be nominated. The train station is freaking huge and has trains from all over the UK coming here. Coach is also a popular way for hen groups to get here. And while it may be a nightmare to drive once you are in Edinburgh, driving to the city is easy as it's well connected to the rest of the UK via a few of the main motorways.
Eating & Shopping In Edinburgh
Edinburgh has just a crazy amount of places to get a bite to eat. One place that I think is a great choice for a fun meal is the Hard Rock Cafe which as well as offering nice food has a ton of cool stuff for you to check out as well. If you want a more “up market” and fine dining experience for your main meal on your hen weekend then I recommend the classy Stock Bridge Restaurant.
As for shopping, I really am at a loss for where to start you see Princes Street is world famous and has a ton of shops, but it’s like every few feet there is an ally or a side road that takes you to even more shops! You can spend a whole day here and still not see all the amazing shops that Edinburgh has to offer.
What You Can Do During The Day
Edinburgh has almost an unlimited amount of fun things that you can do during the day and here I have for you just a wee taste of what Scotland’s capital has to offer.
Chocolate Making Party
What girl doesn't love chocolate, I know we all do at GoBananas. This class is a great way to learn about the chocolate making process and of course eat loads of chocolate.
