TripAdvisor Reveals the Top 10 British Hen Party Destinations

Newcastle Favourite for British Brides-to-be

TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website, can now exclusively reveal the UK’s most popular hen party destinations.  If you are a bridesmaid or maid of honour in need of inspiration for where to send the bride-to-be off in style, then look no further.

This list, indentifying the UK’s most popular hen-do destinations, is based on TripAdvisor site data, calculating the number of times that travellers reference hen parties in their candid TripAdvisor reviews*. Without a doubt, the top choices for British hen party weekends are the popular party destinations of Newcastle, Blackpool and Bournemouth.

“This list reveals the destinations of choice for hens and their friends flock to,” commented Emma O’Boyle, TripAdvisor spokesperson. “They’re all tried-and-tested favourites for a reason. Whether you’re looking for a traditional wild night out or a more sophisticated girly weekend away TripAdvisor travellers have tried them all.”
