Overview of Hen weekends in Leeds
A hen night in Leeds more than competes with London on many levels, and it has a very important trump card up its sleeve: unlike The Big Smoke there are plenty of places to partake in ‘out-doorsy’ activities. Leeds is located right next to the Yorkshire Dales, so the opportunity to try out clay pigeon shooting or even treasure hunting is made available to you - you can’t do that on the underground! Also, Leeds doesn’t scrimp on the nightlife - whether you want a butler in the buff to attend your Leeds hen party, or to watch the Adonis Cabaret, there's something for every hen.
A cultural and historical hive, you might be looking to relocate to Leeds after visiting for a weekend, as its compact centre and closeness to the green rolling hills of the Dales mean that there’s a vibrant mix of tastes around every corner – and if you’re interested in music, the arts, theatre and paying the odd visit to a museum, Leeds is for you.
For quite a small city, you might expect the Leeds nightlife to be a little bit refined. Think again. With 2 universities and a whole load of hungry (or shall we say thirsty) revellers wanting a good time, the Leeds nightlife is bursting at the seams. If you’re in the mood for visiting one of the biggest clubs in the North, head to Gatecrasher Seven, want something alternative, make a beeline for The Cockpit (trust us, it isn’t as dirty as it sounds), or to simply chill out head down to Call Lane Social or Distrikt.
Leeds is bound to make the bride-to-be a happy hen, with some of the best, most unique and luxurious shopping areas the whole country has to offer. The Corn Exchange is a must visit, as is Kirkgate Market and the Victoria Quarter, so allow ample time (and space in your bank account to visit them all!)
Leeds's Famous For
Leeds Football Club (not that you care), The Corn Exchange, breweries, breweries and more breweries.
With the city centre being almost completely pedestrianised, it’s well worth taking a stroll through it on your arrival to see what places you run into, but buses and taxis are of course easy enough to hop on and off of whenever you feel like it. You can even get a boat between Granary Wharf, Brewery Wharf and Clarence Dock!
