A Guide To Your Edinburgh Hen Weekend

Where to Drink in Edinburgh

Cocktail den? Rooftop bar? Old boy boozers? Hipster pubs? Check. Check. Check. Check. It's the capital of Scotland, so you know you're in safe hands when the thirst hits.

Old Town is where it's at if you want to find some quirky places to drink. Jazz themes and live music venues are hen-party gold and will impress the whole group.

New Town has more of the party staples where you can nip into cocktail bar after cocktail bar and always find something new and exciting.

South Side has some of the best beer gardens with a relaxed feel if you're after a night out of the chilled variety. It's a creative and cosmopolitan part of Edinburgh, the perfect place to head if your pennies have been pinched from any pre-party shopping.

Sights & Sounds

Sights - Don't go to Edinburgh during the The Fringe, there, we've said it. Yes everyone will tell you what an amazing event it is but the truth is the city becomes overcrowded and hotel prices rocket. Edinburgh is a city blessed with great culture and events all year round, from the heights of Arthur's Seat along the bars of the Royal Mile to the world famous Castle. Keep your phones at the ready because there's so much to photograph.

Sounds - Say 'Aloha' to a great night out at Lola Lo and enjoy the taste of Paradise (because we're fairly sure Paradise tastes like Lola Lo's cocktails), top tunes and a great relaxed atmosphere. If you are more in the mood for dressing up then Lulu takes opulent design, top DJs and top deals to blend some of the biggest party nights in town. To really give the bride-to-be a VIP night you can enjoy Guest List Entry to the best venue in town.

Best Shopping Spots

Those Were The Days - If you love vintage then this fantastic shop is the place. Packed with shoes, bags, dresses, jackets, jewellery and more from the roaring 20's to the 'what were you thinking' 90's, it's a treasure trove of fashion gems.
26 St Stephen St, EH3 5AL

Edinburgh Markets - Calling all foodies! If you love good taste and sampling the finest local produce and artisan treats then get your tasting forks along to Stockbridge Market, you certainly won't be disappointed.
Saunders Street EH3 6TQ

Waverly Mall - You know a shopping mall is good when it has its own Irish bar up on the roof. Packed with designer brands and all your high street favourites plus eats galore.
3 Waverley Bridge, EH1 1BQ

Getting Around Edinburgh

The best by miles! You'll find a lot of Edinburgh's best nightlife on and around the Royal Mile, but be warned, the city loves its cobbles and steps so it can be a bit wearing on the high heels by the end of a long night. By day, Edinburgh can be a bit steep, and we're not talking about prices so be prepared for a little legwork. If you fancy getting fit go see the lovely team at Leith Cycle Co.
Edinburgh has busses and trams criss-crossing the city centre, our tip is to get a OneTicket which gives you unlimited travel over a certain time period, so you can buy a single ticket to cover your whole weekend.

Hen Days

Edinburgh is a city that loves to laugh and the activities we have in store for you are no different whether you want to be Cocktail Mixing, battling it out on Highland Games or making a show of yourselves at your own private Dance Class, there really is something for everyone. See all hen activities Edinburgh.

Hen Nights

There is so much more to Edinburgh than festivals and castles. Without doubt Edinburgh is one of the most famous party cities in the world. No one knows how to throw a hootenanny like 'Auld Reekie' with everything from hunky Butlers in the Buff, spooky Ghost Tours, Guest List Nightclubbing.

Quickfire Edinburgh FAQs

Is Edinburgh walkable?

The centre of Edinburgh is definitely walkable and a stroll up to the castle is a must. However, it does depend on where you're staying – if you're far out, there are plenty of buses and local taxis that can get you from A to B.

Where can I go drinking in Edinburgh?

Make sure to visit George Street and Rose Street which are famous for their bars and pubs that are happy to accept walk-ins until late. Another great option is Grassmarket Street which is home to more affordable pubs – ideal if you're on a budget.

How can I get to Edinburgh from London?

You can take an hour-long flight from London to Edinburgh for as little as £35, which is the fastest and most convenient mode of transport. Edinburgh has direct train links from many destinations throughout the country, too.

How many days should I spend in Edinburgh?

More than 68% of the hen groups who have entrusted their hen party to GoHen have booked a 3-night stay in Edinburgh. Because it's quite far for the majority of the UK to travel to, people want to make the most of their stay and really explore all this city has to offer.

Athens of the North

Edinburgh. A city that's given us more laughs per square metre than any other town in the world, The Bay City Rollers and the absolute #fitty that is Andy Murray... It's the perfect destination for the bride's last weekend of single living. And if you're there thinking that a city with a nickname like the "Athens of the North" is out of your price range then think again. The picturesque Scottish party capital is surprisingly budget-friendly and at GoHen's fabulous low rates you can send the nearly-married lady off with a right old hootenanny for far less than you first planned. Leaving you with even more to spend in the chic boutiques, vibrant nightclubs and spectacular bars along the world-famous Royal Mile.
