So one of your friends is getting married, and she wants YOU to be her Maid of Honour – amazing! You think of all the fun you’ll have planning the wedding, tasting the menu, going for fittings, and then it dawns on you. You have to organise the Hen Do! The good news is that here in Bath, there are loads of places to go and things to do no matter what your groups’ taste or budget.

The Apex Hotel in the heart of Bath is perfectly located to explore the city.

In a city with such stunning architecture, Bath is full of incredible places to set up as your home for the duration of your Hen Do. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a luxurious self-catered apartment, a hotel full of amenities or a purse-friendly place to just get ready before you hit the town, Bath has it all!

What “should” happen on a Hen Do depends on one thing: the Bride to Be. So no matter what the other Hens in the party have in mind, the key to a successful celebration is to make sure that the guest of honour is comfortable. Yes you could hit the shops, or watch a game or rugby at The Rec, but if you’re looking for a daytime activity, try one of these for size:

It wouldn’t be a Hen Do without a night on the town. Luckily, Bath’s Night spots are worth the trip to the city on their own, let alone whatever else you have planned for your time here. Bath has truly charming ‘proper pubs’, decadent venues for Fine Dining and, of course, some amazing clubs to dance the night away!
