It's time for a hen party in Stratford upon Avon!
The pretty Tudor buildings, the beautiful rural Warwickshire countryside, and the huge literary history give you a good idea of what Stratford is like during the day, but hide the truth about the Stratford nights - with tourists, theatre boys, and more lively and charming pubs than you could fit in to even the busiest of hen dos, a hen party in Stratford has astounding potential for either a tranquil or exhilarating weekend!
Why: Reasons to celebrate a Stratford upon Avon hen party
Not all hens are fans of slamming back shots and downing pints - sometimes a hen weekend that leaves you with a slightly less pounded liver is called for, and when that's the case, a Stratford-upon-Avon hen do is a fantastic choice. It's a stately, picturesque town, but there's far more going on beyond the postcard-ready façade - as the birthplace of the most brilliant playwright the world has ever known (a chap called William Shakespeare), it's one of the hottest tourist destinations in the UK, with around 5.5 million visitors a year paying pilgrimage to the birthplace of the bard each year. Even if you're not a Shakespeare super fan yourself, you can still appreciate the resulting charming hotels and B&Bs, the well-established and lively pubs, and the colossal array of culture around the town. In the evenings you'll really get a taste of 'Olde England', wander through the streets past the half timber buildings and experience some fine dining in one of Stratford's fantastic restaurants offering a delicious selection of cuisines. There are spas, art galleries, museums, and -of course- theatres galore. If you're looking for a tranquil weekend away with the girls, it's got to be a hen party in Stratford!
What: What can you do on in Stratford upon Avon?
Plenty. Stratford may not be a big city, but it's got more than enough going on to cater for the tastes of any hen party. If you're looking for something serene, Stratford upon Avon has a host of ways to relax in the pretty little town, with fantastic spas, al fresco dining and dainty tea rooms. You can take advantage of the local countryside and proximity to the Cotswolds if you'd like something a bit more active, and get your blood racing with some more energetic and outdoor pursuits like grass karting or 4x4 driving. And of course, all our hen do favourites are available in Stratford, with dancing lessons, pamper sessions, and a cheeky bit of wine tasting too! After a fantastic Stratford hen day in the countryside surroundings of Stratford it's time to hit Stratford's nightlife! It may not have the nightlife credentials of the larger UK towns but there are still some great venues, from rustic pubs to chic and intimate wine and cocktail bars! Don't fret if you are after the nightclubs - classy Cheltenham or cool Birmingham are both under an hour away, and with enough clubs to keep you up all night!
