If you’re looking for a hen weekend destination in the North but don’t want to head to somewhere as full-on as Manchester or Liverpool, and want somewhere with a little more charm* than Leeds, then why not consider looking at hen party houses in York.
York is nestled north-east of Leeds and is really well-connected to the rest of the country by road and rail.
It’s not as big as some of the other cities in the north, but is definitely full of great places to stay, eat and drink which makes it great for a hen weekend.
*By charm, we mean that Harry Potter/Diagon Alley kinda charm.
