Your hen party is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have one final blow out with your best girlfriends; an excuse to get all dolled up, head out onto the tiles and party in style. These days, we’re finding that hens are straying from the more tacky L-plates, willy straws and tiaras, to the more sophisticated types of do. That’s why stag and hen party planners, Last Night of Freedom, have rounded up their top five most sophisticated hen party activities from the top locations across the globe.
Sky Pod Bar – London
When it comes to luxury, glamour and sophistication, there’s no better place to celebrate a hen do, than our very own capital city. The streets of The Big Smoke are littered with stylish, cosmopolitan drinking establishments – but none will make you feel quite so elegant and glamorous than the premium, sky-high Sky Pod at the top of the Walkie Talkie building. You can watch the sun set from your unique vantage point, behind iconic landmarks such as The Shard, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge – making this the perfect backdrop to any hen party celebrations.
Luxury Beach Club – Marbella
You don’t get much more glamorous than a Marbella beach club. Lounging in your finest swimwear, cocktail in hand, shooting glances at the effortlessly attractive bronzed lads in their short shorts. With Sisu, Nikki Beach, Plaza Beach and La Sala among the big names on the pool party scene, you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to celebrate in marvellous Marbs.
SIX Baltic – Afternoon Tea – Newcastle
Take your hen weekend to new heights (literally), with a delicious afternoon tea in SIX Baltic, Newcastle’s premium rooftop restaurant. Boasting stunning views over the iconic Quayside, you’ll have your dainty delights with a side of exclusivity and sophistication, and, of course, a spot of fizz as the real cherry on top.
Spa Breaks – Various Locations UK & Abroad
From tranquil mansions in the glorious countryside to Tudor style manor houses and grand and elegant inner-city escapes, a spa break is the epitome of relaxation. Whether you want to feel fully rejuvenated after a range or treatments from trained beauty therapists, or you just want to enjoy using the saunas, Jacuzzis and other facilities, a spa break is a glamorous hen party must.
The races is a good chance to get dressed in your finest attire, turns heads, drink to excess and make your fortune at the same time. It’s no surprise it’s a hen party favourite. Ladies Day at Newcastle Race Course is a fabulous day to do just that, where you can mix with the city’s elite and pretend you know a thing or two about weighing up the form (even if you did just pick the horse on the basis of the silly name).
