The beautiful cathedral city is perfect for a laidback girly getaway. With beautiful scenery at every turn and some excellent places to wine and dine, it’s no wonder that York is the second most visited city in the UK.
York Hen Party Guide – Shopping
York is famous for its collection of little boutiques and independent retailers. Forget the standard tourist fare, for a truly unique souvenir to remember your hen do, the Red House Antique’s Centre is the place to go, an impressive building filled with beautiful collectibles and antiques. For your high street labels, Petergate and Stonegate will prove far more than adequate.
York Hen Party Guide – Eating Out
When visiting York, Rustique is one restaurant you absolutely must visit. Dishing up authentic French cuisine you can expect to find the focus on exquisite meat dishes and lots of classic French desserts. For a light lunch you can’t go wrong with the Ambience Cafe who openly claim to not be a restaurant but take pride in serving up great, home cooked food.
One of our Chocolate Making hen parties would be great for you if you’re a real foodie and fancy rolling up your sleeves.
York Hen Party Guide – Nightlife
With a large student population, it’s no wonder York has a thriving nightlife! The Gallery Club has different events every weekend and offers private booths and suites for those who book in advance. If you’re a cocktail lover (and what girl isn’t!?) then this is the place for you. If you want to pack in a number of clubs to your visit then Salvation is another nighttime hot spot and even offers special hen party packages and deals.
York’s ancient city walls are definitely worth visiting and provide a whole new perspective on this wonderful city while giving you the chance to walk off last night’s shots. For history buffs there are a selection of great museums throughout the city, a particular tourist favourite being the Jorvik Viking Centre. Finally don’t forget about catching a glimpse of York Minster – the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe.
York Hen Party Guide – Entertainment
For something a little bit different for your hen do, have a think about York’s famous Ghost Suppers. You start your evening with a visit to the ghastly York Dungeons, before embarking on a tour around the haunted streets of York where you will hear tales of ghosts, murders and all things horrid! You will then be taken back to the Black Swan for your own private dinner, where the ghost stories will continue!
