Trending hen activities in York

With a large student scene and nightlife to rival many, the picturesque city of York has fast become the ideal destination. 

York hen do guide


Before visiting, many hens are mistaken in thinking that York is a place that your parents would recommend for a hen party. However, after you return home with a sore head and a veil full of memories, you’ll realise the city has two faces. Its buildings carry loads of history yet, it is home to two universities and a whole heap of fun-hungry revellers so the city has venues and quirky bars in abundance. York's pubs and bars are in-keeping with the city’s historic setting, whilst it’s renowned clubs offer the chance to party the night away. We also have package offers to get you and the girls warmed up! Our flirty dancing package will prepare you for your lively night ahead.

Getting around

We know that you girls are going to want to get glammed up and strut about in your favourite heels for your hen party. However, Hen Heaven advises you to pack some good walking shoes as York’s winding, cobbled roads and beautiful buildings make it a city that’s best to see on foot. Most places of interest are kept close together and you can hop on a bus or, if you fancy taking the hassle out of the whole thing, then you can book transfers with us - just ask your party planner for more details!

Tips and ideas

York is a chocolate lovers dream, offering its visitors a chocolate trail to satisfy their sweet tooth. After indulging on chocolate, it’s time to get a bit creepy with a drink in York’s most ‘haunted’ pub – The Golden Fleece.

Being a historic city, there is loads to see, as well as galleries and museums, perfect if you and the girls are interested in doing something cultural.

Sight-seeing wise, you need to make sure you check out York Minster and Clifford’s Tower! Get your cameras prepped and ready, the city really does look like something of a fairy-tale.

Nightlife

It’s all about variety when it comes to the York nightlife, so you’ll have more than enough to choose from.  If live music is your thing, hit up The Stone Roses Bar, alternatively, make sure you do some research as there are a fair few pubs that play live music and gigs.

For the theatre fan in you, make a beeline for the Grand Opera House or York Theatre Royal.

As far as bars go, don’t miss Revolutions' unbeatable riverside setting!

Being an old town, York boasts loads of great traditional pubs. They are all in the town centre and within an easy walking distance. So, if you and the girls are wanting a pub-crawl, then York really could be the place to go!

If you hadn’t heard, York is the UK’s home of chocolate. Forget about Cadbury World in the Midlands!
