Struggling with ideas for my hen do! It will be end of June next year. 2 nights, preferably Uk based. Have you been on any memorable hen do's that will give me inspiration?

I'm probably boring but the best hen dos for me are the ones that are in our local town. Nice dinner, drinks, dancing etc can get a taxi home. I hate feeling the pressure to stay away (usually £££ too) with loads of people I don't know that well.

That's a good point. We could just go into town, been a while since we've had a night out.

Actually no, I want a night away, I will have an almost 1 year old, a lie in will be amazing 😉

I agree with @Buyitinbamboo.

I prefer to make an afternoon/evening of it locally - meet up at home for drinks and get a chance to say hello to everyone then off for a meal, a few pubs and a taxi home at the end of the night smile

I've done the going away for a few days and there's always drama involved - getting annual leave, babysitters, cash etc etc - it's just unnecessary stress and expense which can also exclude people.

I’ve liked eveyone staying in a country cottage styles ones the best. One which sticks out had a dance choreographer come and do a Beyoncé routine with us all as well as a night out to a local restaurant and small town club 😂

Could you arrange to stay with a friend so you can get a long lie?
