Banks Bar - Did someone say "cocktails"? As well as great tunes the cocktails are as easy on the tastebuds as the barmen are on the eyes. Mmmm
The Source - "It's all about the bass..." Forget plastic palm trees or gimmicks, The Source is all about great tunes and a fantastic party atmosphere. "...no treble".

Sights & Sounds
Situated in Kent (The Garden of England) Maidstone has masses to offer and plenty to see especially if you love quaint old buildings. Tithe Barn, the Archbishops Palace and nearby Leeds Castle are all worth a visit. Hungover hens looking for restorative powers might benefit from a walk along the River Medway or through Mote Park.
If music is at the heart of your hen party then The Rafters is definitely the place to be, "There is no dress code and no attitude". The venue features live music every Saturday before resident and guest DJ's take over proceedings until 4am.

Finding the right location for the perfect hen party can be the key to a great weekend. So let us waggle a big finger in the direction of Maidstone, with great rail links to London, and a short skip from the M25 not only is it a doddle to get but it's a great little party town, hen parties in Maidstone are one of Kent's best kept secrets.
Maidstone hen party? It's in the name...
In 1652 soon-to-be-wed Lady Mary de la Prada was so thrilled with a young knave's clog dancing, that she slipped a gold coin inside his codpiece and bought a flagon of cider for her maids. This small hamlet came to be known as "Maids Town" and through the medieval period maids from across Europe would make a pilgrimage for a Maidstone hen party to learn how to mix cocktails and watch the Wild Knights strip show in the town square ahead of their weddings...
Ok, we can't go on, we're making that up. However in ye olde English Maidstone does mean ‘maids town' and this really is a fantastic destination for bridesmaids and brides to party ahead of the big weekend.
Surrounded by the striking Kent countryside, and with great travel links it's not just easy to get to but a really smart place to party.
