The summer months are a great time to get together with your favourite friends and celebrate your last weekend of freedom and the UK has some stunning destinations to enjoy during summer. Some towns and cities seem to spring to life in the warmer months and we’ve picked out just a few popular destinations for summer hen weekends.
You’d be forgiven for thinking you were abroad if you take your hen weekend in the beautiful town of Newquay. This seaside resort located on the northwest Cornish coast has beautiful beaches and thriving tourism during the summer when its population can swell to 100,000 from approximately 22,000 giving you a good indication of its popularity. Newquay is perfect if you are the type of hen weekend that also likes your water activities.
Known as the “surfing Capital of Britain” Newquay boasts some amazing beaches such as Fistral beach which is particularly famous for its surfing waters. Towan, Great Western and Tolcarne are also renowned for their suitability for surfing. Not only is Newquay great for its beaches, it also has a famous nightlife scene making it a perfect and popular destination for hen weekend.
This is another coastal resort, but this time not so well known for its surfing but for its vibrant and bustling atmosphere. On the south coast of England in East Sussex, just a 50 minute train journey from London, Brighton is a lively cosmopolitan town that attracts huge numbers of visitors in the summer months. This bubbly atmosphere, the pier, the nightlife and great shopping make it a hen weekend dream of a summer location. Wander to the seafront and spend some time on the amusements, or have a wander down pas the old pier and to the band stand which is currently being renovated.
There are some fantastic places to eat and drink especially in the North Laine and South Laine areas. As for nightlife, with over 350 licensed premises you won’t be short of finding somewhere to have a little drink. I you’re looking for sophistication then hit somewhere like the Sky Bar or Hotel Du Vin but if you want cheesy music a wacky atmosphere it can only be West Street for your hen weekend evenings out!
Very different to the previous locations, Scotland’s capital is a beautiful location to have a hen weekend in during the summer. The sunshine mixed with the many festivals makes it a lively place in the summer, perfect for a hen weekend. It might not have the wild and crazy atmosphere of a seaside town, but it certainly has a nightlife to be reckoned with.
Both the Old and New Town have beautiful architecture and you’ll be amazed by the heritage and history still reflected in the buildings from the Georgian and Reformation eras. Edinburgh also has world famous shopping with Princes Street being the main trail for your high street shops as well as souvenir stores and upmarket department stores.
