Overview of Hen weekends in Newcastle
If you’re looking to head north for your hen weekend then the number one destination has to be Newcastle upon Tyne. Made famous by glam fashion, Geordie Shore and the big buff local men, Newcastle is now often listed as one of Britain’s best nights out. The Gate offers bars, pubs, restaurants and a 12 screen multiplex cinema. Combine this with a great selection of shops and a large shopping centre and you have everything that you’ll require to have a hen do to remember!
Newcastle was founded in the second century AD by Emperor Hadrian, who of course played quite a part in the wall which was named after him, part of the wall can still be seen around Newcastle today.
Newcastle nightlife is fast becoming a thing of legend and as a result scores of hens and stags now visit the city for their last big night out (ever!!). Bigg Market and the Quayside are popular locations, as is the Gate complex since it opened. Collingwood Street is rising in popularity, and some call this the ‘Diamond Strip’ due to its higher-end bars. There are noticeable names such as Tiger Tiger in the city, which is great for drinks and Digital which is the club of choice for true music lovers.
Visit the Millennium Bridge; it’s good for a photo opportunity, as is the Newcastle Castle Keep, which dates all the way back to the 11th century. You can also enter the keep itself and you can get some great views of the city from the top. Again, time to get those cameras out.
Newcastle's Famous For
Cheryl Cole, Sting and of course, Ant & Dec!
Getting around Newcastle should be done predominantly by bus or the metro system. The metro system was actually the first in the UK to have telephone aerials installed. Grabbing the green metro line can take you through to Sunderland. Taxis are the best bet for your evenings, get a local taxi firm’s number and keep it to hand for when you step out from the clubs in the early hours.
What our customers say...
EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE
We used Hen Heaven to help organise a Hen weekend in Newcastle upon Tyne in April 2013.
The whole customer service experience was fantastic, nothing was too much for them even when we needed to extend the invite / deposit phase to accommodate more people.
Very professional and organised company and the cost per head we paid was very reasonable too!
We dealt with Jack Chandler and a girl called Beth both are a credit to Hen Heaven

We had the best weekend ever!!
I would really recommend hen heaven to anyone who is wanting to plan a weekend away for any special occasion! Staff were really attentive and efficient at helping me to plan my sisters hen weekend! We laughed from start to finish. Could not ave asked for a better weekend! The girls really enjoyed their dirty dancing class with the one and only Gainor! She was a hoot!!! We will never forget the dance moves although we did get really hot in the room and no thanks to a few drinks the night before we struggled on the last half hr of the class. the river cruise was excellent loved the experience,the food and the music. It definitely got us in the mood to party on at the Oceana club which was just perfect and wish we had a club like it in newcastle! Thanks again to your team for creating an unforgettable weekend, I have already passed your web address on to a few friends which inspired them for future occasion! Many thanks and hope to work with you again very soon

Fantastic, hassle free, super value, weekend!
The hen weekend was fantastic! We went to Newcastle and stayed in the Holiday Inn express metro - a bit further out than the city centre, but we got free bubbly and a free taxi for the group into town. The Friday night entertainment was at a comedy club, this included a two course meal - great value for money as there was even steak on the menu!!! The night included free entry into the club next to the comedy club - we stayed there and partied all night, with much fun had by all!!! The Saturday was spent at the Hilton hotel for a spa day, much needed as we were all feeling worse for wear! We then got our glad rags back on for a cocktail making evening at Revolutions; again this included a great two course meal! The evening was such fun and we had soooo much free booze! The weekend was easy to book and involved little hassle with payments, etc! I would recommend to anyone!
