Hen Parties used to be a straight-forward affair – the chief bridesmaid would arrange a bit of a get together to give the bride-to-be a celebratory send-off. This usually involved meeting up in the local town centre and embarking upon a somewhat undignified pub crawl.

However, things have changed considerably and nowadays the hen night tradition has spawned an entire industry dedicated to make sure you all have a party to remember. Whatever your style or budget there is a hen night or weekend package to suit – from a weekend stay at a famous seaside to short holidays abroad and activities to keep everyone entertained.
