Reasons to Visit
There are lots of places in the UK where you can imagine having a great night out for your hen weekend. But when you think about the possibility of an Edinburgh Hen Do, you realise that this really could be the one. Anyone who has been to Edinburgh before will tell you that it has a charm, a beauty and an atmosphere all of its own, and these all come together to create one of the most perfect hen weekend destinations that you can possibly imagine.
There is a reason why this city is famous for being hugely popular with tourists from both the UK and abroad, and it is because it marries so many different things together in one perfect location. It is known for its beauty, its friendliness and its culture - after all, the theatre scene is one of the best in the UK, and the Edinburgh International Festival is one of the biggest arts festivals in the world.
You can get to Edinburgh no matter how you travel. Driving up? The journey is easy and well-maintained regardless of where you are coming from. Travelling by train? It’s served from most major cities without you needing to change whatsoever. And if you are from the opposite end of the country, we’d recommend jumping on a plane. After all, it doesn’t take long and it’s so much quicker than any other form of transport.
Where to Stay
The city has a huge range of accommodation available, meaning that your Edinburgh Hen Do can be tailored to exactly the kind of weekend you want. You can socialise together in some classic apartments, relax in a high quality hotel or really push the boat out and enjoy the luxury bespoke hen accommodation we can offer. Any budget, any request, this bustling metropolis has the accommodation to offer.
Just a quick note for your planning - I should point out that if you are NOT trying to visit Edinburgh to enjoy the festival, we’d highly recommend giving August a miss when it comes to picking a date, as while the August prices for accommodation etc are not horrendous, they are certainly more expensive than every other month of the year in this amazing destination.
With the accommodation sorted, you’ll want some entertaining activities to add extra value to your hen weekend – and that’s something always easily available in Edinburgh. We have over ninety activities available for your Edinburgh hen do, so no matter what your preference may be, you know that you’ll find some perfect options to fill your day with.
If you are looking for a “getting to know you all” activity for the first day (which is often a good idea if the hens are from different friend groups at different times of the hen’s life), then we cannot recommend the Afternoon Tea with unlimited prosecco enough. After all, who doesn’t like sandwiches, cakes, and as much prosecco as you are able to drink! A perfect Friday afternoon activity that lets you start as you mean to go on. Other good ice-breaker activities include a trip to an escape room, where you’ll all have to work together, or the “Insta Tour” of the city, where you’ll be taken around to the most photogenic sites in the city so you can show the world what a great time you are having.
With such a plethora of other activities at your fingertips as well, you can make the weekend as busy or relaxing as you would like. You can dance the day away, see who has the best cocktail making skills, sing your hearts out in a recording studio, go on a nice relaxing horse ride, or even drive a hovercraft if you fancy something different!
Activities are all well and good, but what an Edinburgh Hen Do absolutely has to get right are the nights out. Luckily, there is no finer city in which you could find yourself spending a night on the tiles. We do highly recommend that you ought to grab a meal from one of Edinburgh’s popular restaurants before heading out – and with options that range from Italian to Indian, Chinese to Chips, you’ll find somewhere that suits the group and your budget easily.
Then it’s on to the drinking. The biggest problem with a night out on an Edinburgh Hen Do is that there are way more bar and club options than you can possibly visit in one weekend. If you fancy some inside knowledge, however, we have a selection of very knowledgeable guides who can take you for a guided bar tour to show you all of the best nightspots – we recommend this as a great first night activity, to give you a nice idea of where you plan to drink for the rest of the weekend.
Edinburgh has the variety and the quality of nightlife which will give you an absolutely perfect night out. Whether you choose to end the night drinking cocktails in a popular bar or grooving away on the dancefloor of one of the most popular clubs you’ve ever been to, your night in Edinburgh is not one to be forgotten in a hurry – unless you’ve drunk so much that you can’t remember anything at all!
With all of that, it’s clear that an Edinburgh Hen Do is one of the best options you could ever explore for your hen’s perfect weekend. If that’s the case, get in touch and ask us all the questions you can think of, and more besides. We’re always honoured to be able to tailor make a perfect weekend for anyone, and we’ll make sure that your Edinburgh Hen do makes all other hen dos obsolete.
