If you’re like most brides-to-be, the hen party is one of the key rituals that must be
undertaken prior to tying the knot. When you’ve frequented the tired bars and cheesy nightclubs of your own home town since coming of age, now is the time to break the mould, shake things up and experience what a new city has to offer.
Where better then to head to, than the North of England’s party hub, for a Manchester hen party you definitely won’t live down. The city that gave birth to Oasis; offers some of the best clubbing experiences in the U.K at Hacienda and K2, and delivers a score of pro-football talent, is also becoming a party mecca to rival the country’s multi-faceted Southern capital – London.
If you’re stuck for ideas for a Manchester hen party, you only need do a quick Google on the city to unravel the plethora of opportunities, experiences and bags of shopping locations on offer. The heart of Manchester beckons with the infamous party strip at Canal Street. Packed with sophisticated restaurants, character bars and the hub for Manchester’s gay crowd, you can go from dining to dancing, without the usual cattle market atmosphere of lecherous guys on the pull. Rumour has it that the men frequenting Canal Street on a Friday night are infinitely better to look at too. We’ll leave that for you to decide!
Or how about a Manchester hen party with a difference? Cue Manchester’s newest floating venue on the River Irwell, and Manchester Ship Canal – once one of the longest man-made rivers in the world. Moored up at one of Manchester’s most prestigious hotels (The Lowry), the River Princess presents a contemporary alternative for partying in style, floating down one of the most beautiful cityscapes in Britain.
Take in the rotund beauty of The Lowry Art Gallery, the stunning glass composition of newly built Media City, and a backdrop of archaic industrial heritage that dates back to the 19th Century – sightseeing as you sip an ice cool glass of wine or beer, with beats from the boat to get you in the mood for a night of full-on partying! A Manchester hen party is definitely one you won’t forget!
