Vintage Retro hen party locations

Hen weekends with a touch of class...

If you’re looking for a touch of class and a little elegance from yesteryear then there are some great vintage and retro hen party destinations.

There are plenty of great activities to suit hens who love a little retro fun. In particular we have dance classes spanning the decades, from Can-Can and Burlesque to Grease and Madonna to keep you en vogue.

Where to go Vintage...

Brighton

It’s not just retro, Brighton IS rock ‘n’ roll. From the heady days of the mods and rockers, through the punk era and onto some of the best young bands around, Brighton is synonymous with great taste and “cool”. If you’re fans of vintage clothing the North Laines is one of the best shopping streets in the UK with great vintage record, furniture and clothes shops as well as its famous jewellery. Read more...

Cambridge

Another great shopping spot thanks to the huge student population who love their vintage clothes. You can also enjoy some wonderful retro activities such as Afternoon Tea and Wine Tasting. Alternatively relax on a punt with a few cocktails or some glasses of fizz. Read more...

Amsterdam

The Dutch have loved the ‘steam punk’ movement for years, with one eye on modern cool design while still retaining a love of all things vintage, the city really does throw up more than a few surprises. Amsterdam is great for shopping as well as just relaxing beside the canals in a funky old café, many of which retain their charms from days gone by. Read more...

Paris

Is there anywhere that retains quite such a sense of chic elegance as gay Paris? The city is a rich, decadent tapestry of fine art and vintage design. It’s difficult to envisage a group of girls in Paris without conjuring up images of black and white photos, Coco Channel and decades of high fashion. Read more...   

Cheltenham

A city with real charm, Cheltenham doesn’t seem to want to throw off its roots and completely modernise. But don’t get us wrong, this isn’t a sleepy backwater, Cheltenham has a fantastically modern nightlife but you will find some very classy nights in some great retro venues. Read more...  

Dublin

Another city that loves its vintage clothes is the fair city of Dublin. The city retains its charm as is evident throughout districts like Temple Bar. You’ll also find a hive of cutting edge fashion, much of which draws inspiration from vintage designs and styles. There’s plenty for retro hens to enjoy across the city from activities to great shopping. Read more...

Chester

Anyone who has spent time in Chester will know this is a city with real character. It is also very forward thinking and a hub for the North West’s glitterati with many a famous face living in the area. There are some great bars and restaurants that have a cool retro feel but be careful with the plastic when out shopping, stick to the vintage stores and stay away from the latest designers or risk meltdown. Read more...

Stratford-upon-Avon

If you want real vintage then Stratford ticks all the boxes, gorgeous little tea shops, olde worlde charm and of course its most famous son and celebrated scribe William Shakespeare. Even a stroll through the parks feels somehow timeless. Read more...

Bath

One of the UK’s most popular hen destinations is a city with real history which is evident in the very fabric of the Bath’s architecture. Famed for timeless tea shops and delightful arcades you’ll find some great vintage clothing on the outskirts of the city centre (Walcot Street). There are also some great vintage hen weekend activities that are completely unique to Bath. Read more...

Rome

Dark glasses, vespa mopeds, candle-lit tables sitting out in the piazzas on warm summer evenings. All you need is the soundtrack from a 50’s crooner and you feel instantly transported back to another era. Read more...

Manchester

If you’re after vintage shopping Manchester has it all; Afflecks Palace in the centre of the city is a veritable Aladdin’s cave of vintage and retro clothing, hats, jewellery and other knick-knacks. Once you manage to make it out (and it is easily somewhere you can spend a few hours if you’re not careful) then The Printworks is another great spot for vintage clothing and design. Read more...

London

Every kind of retro charm or vintage talent can be found in London, from burlesque cabaret shows and circus restaurants to the vintage markets like Portabello Road, Camden and Spitalfields. There is also plenty of retro design on view at the V&A museum which has served as an inspiration to top designers for decades and is well worth a visit. Read more...
