Planning where to go on the hen party can be one of the most difficult things to get right. You have loads of factors that have to be considered! How much will it cost, can people get time off to go there, is it hen friendly and so on. A lot of the time people think that the UK is just not possible for a hen. It will be too expensive, too much hassle etc. Lucky for you we have come up with 5 reasons why you should consider a UK hen party!

Short Flights

No matter where you decide to go in the UK chances are that the flight won't last much longer than an hour. This could be a lot shorter than the travel time you have for going to an Irish hen party. Only having to travel about an hour or two means there's more time for celebrations!

Cheap Flights

If you are going to a hen party in Ireland you'll have to pay some sort of travel cost. Whether it's just chipping in for petrol or paying for a bus/train this is a cost that you will have even on an Irish hen. So why not put that money towards a flight to the UK instead. UK flights are so reasonable and if booked at the right time could be got for as cheap as a €20! That's better than a bus ticket from Cork to Dublin!

Amazing Locations

The UK has an endless amount of craicing spots for a hen party. From the big cities like London, Edinburgh and Cardiff to the smaller cities like Liverpool and Brighton, UK hen parties really have it all! Let's not forget one of the biggest hen party spots in Europe, Newcastle! If you are looking for a chilled out weekend with the girls or a night of craziness you'll find it all in the UK.

More Bang for Your Buck

We don't want to sound boring or anything but the exchange rate from the euro to the pound is better than ever ladies! There really couldn't be a better time to go on your UK hen party! From experience, we can tell you that alcohol is much cheaper over there (provided you hit the right spots)! Going to the UK really doesn't have to big a big deal financially. It's actually really reasonable over there and we've found that people probably spend just as much in the UK on a hen as they would in Ireland meaning it's defo worth it!

'Exotic' Location

Okay we know it's not the Maldives or anything but going to the UK for a hen party gives off the impression of a more exotic hen. The bride will feel so so special that you've thought of bringing her abroad and it is a chance to go somewhere she's never been before. All this without a major financial burden! Can you think of any reason not to go?
