Ginger Ray has revealed the top 19 UK cities to host your pre-wedding girls trip

Four girls sitting in bed laughing Getting your nearest and dearest together for a hen party can be challenging and pairing that with a cost-of-living crisis might mean you’re looking to celebrate a little closer to home. So, hen party decoration supplier Ginger Ray has done a little digging to find you the top 19 UK cities to host your pre-wedding girls trip and it may delight you to know that you don’t have far to travel for the very best!

Based on an overall ranking of cities providing the most options for a memorable stay, according to Trip Advisor data, considering everything from bottomless brunches and spa treatments to availability of the hugely popular Whispering Angel wine, our beloved Bath came out top.

The underdog to many (if not to us) Bath proved itself the best hen party city in the UK thanks in no small part to its restaurants, one in four of which provide a brunch menu and more than a quarter being group friendly. Not to mention Bath’s huge variety of vegan (44%) and gluten-free (45%) options. Whether it be organic goodness at quaint restaurant OAK or some tasty Nepalese cuisine in one of Bath’s longest serving restaurants Yak Yeti Yak, Bath is certainly the place to be when catering for your bride tribe’s dietary needs. What’s more, the city has an impressive 553 group activities to choose from when you feel like having some fun away from boozy bars, ranging from escape rooms to Paint by Wine workshops.

Jess Martin, decoration expert at Ginger Ray says, “It’s surprising to see how the different cities ranked, with some unexpected ones such as London and Manchester towards the bottom of the list. While the bride is the main focus of your hen party, so many people are involved in making it special so it’s really important to factor this into your planning, whether it’s dietary needs or accessibility. The index is also a great way to scope out which city suits your group’s vibe, whether it be outdoor activities or bars and restaurants. Making sure the place you visit is the best for those preferences will ensure there’s no disappointment among the group.”
