Sometimes you want a slightly different type of Hen Weekend. You might not enjoy being in the centre of a bustling city, or not having the option to relax on a beach – but you still want to know that you’ll be able to entertain yourselves and enjoy some brilliant nightlife. Well good news, a Whitley Bay Hen Do sounds like just the option that you have been looking for.
Located just twenty-five minutes outside of Newcastle, Whitley Bay combines the atmosphere and feel of a seaside town with the convenience of the big city – a marriage made in heaven. It’s unique in Hen Do destinations in this respect, as you can choose on a day-by-day basis (or even activity by activity) where you want to be and what you want to do – fancy heading into the big city for a particular activity or a big night out? No problem. Want to spend the day in the quieter but no less fun town? Easy.
Accommodation for your Whitley Bay Hen Do is most commonly provided by the myriad of seaside hotels and guest houses. This ensures that you get great views and a relaxed feel, which many would argue is vital for hen weekend accommodation, especially while you are recovering from the night before.
These hotels are also populated by some of the friendliest staff that you’ve ever encountered, so once you’ve been there for a few hours, you’ll feel like you are staying somewhere that is a second home to you, meaning that you’ll never want to leave!
As you can see from the huge list at the bottom of this page, there are a wide range of activities that you can take part in on a Whitley Bay Hen Do. Some of the most popular options for any hen do are the ones that take place locally in the town itself, which obviously means less travelling for you and the girls.
With that in mind, I’d be a fool not to mention the Cocktail Making. This is always a popular activity at many destinations, but there’s something brilliant and wonderful about doing it here in Whitley Bay. You’ll get the chance to learn how to make a wide range of the world’s most popular drinks, with a professional mixologist giving you pointers and showing you exactly what you need to do to make a perfect drink.
The Dance class options are also popular here, with everything from Abba Dancing to Zumba being available for a Whitley Bay Hen Do. No matter what style of dance you prefer, you’ll find something here that will keep you happy and entertained for a couple of hours. You might end up learning a routine that you can show off on the dance floor at the wedding itself? (Although if you choose the Burlesque option, that may not be suitable!) Dancing is a great way to bring everyone together, and Hen Do dance classes will always be remembered long after the event has finished.
If you fancy something a bit different, what about the RuPaul’s Drag Race Lip Sync Extravaganza! This will give everyone the chance to be exactly who they want to be, with runway tuition provided to see who is the best on the catwalk before dividing into two different teams to compete against each other in a no holds barred lip sync battle. In short, if the hen is a big fan of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, you’d be foolish not to include this activity in your Whitley Bay Hen Do.
Nightlife-wise, Whitley Bay may not have been high on your list of places to go for a night out, but I think you will be surprised (and definitely in a good way!). This town has way more going on at night than you have probably imagined, with a great selection of pubs and bars available to you, usually within a few minutes walk of the hotel.
I haven’t even mentioned the restaurants either. There are loads of great places to eat in Whitley Bay, with a wide range of cuisines being available throughout your weekend away, meaning that whatever you and the girls like to eat, you won’t go hungry on your Whitley Bay Hen Do.
There are local nightclubs as well, so once you’ve been to all of the pubs and bars that you want to experience, you’ll easily find somewhere to spend the rest of the night, dancing away until your feet ache and the sun is threatening to come up.
And, of course, as well as having a night out in Whitley Bay, you can also arrange a night out in nearby Newcastle. For a lot of Whitley bay Hen Dos, they’ll pick one night to go out in Whitley Bay itself, and one night to go out in Newcastle, meaning that you essentially get to explore two entirely different sets of nightlife in just one weekend, which is an absolutely brilliant idea.
