Not sure what sort of hen party will suit the bride most? Being Manchester based, we’ve got a LOT of different types of activities to try and you can mix and match activities and accommodation to suit. That can be a good thing, but it can also make the decision of what to do that bit more difficult!

Because then the questions start. What type of accommodation should we book? What activity would the bride-to-be love?

Well, that all depends on the individual group. So, for a hen party as individual and special as the bride-to-be then why not check out our handy flowchart below?! And once you’ve discovered the perfect party option, why not check out what we can offer with our handy hints and tips below?

Hopefully by now you’ve got a sense of which hen party ideas are best for your group. Clearly, as much as we stretched that flowchart out, even that can only take so much! Why not check out our Build Your Own Hen Party  or Special Offers packages sections for further ideas?

So here’s some more information of what you can expect in Manchester city centre.




We’ve put these first as these are by far our most popular option for those looking for stag and hen partyaccommodation in Manchester city centre. We have teamed up with a luxury yet affordable apart-hotel where prices start from just £110pp for a 2 night stay.


The YHA and Mad Hatters are popular ones to try, both close to the city centre. We’ve not got a preferred rate with either so it’s best to go direct.

3* hotel

Like any big city, Manchester has a lot of 3* hotels like the Premier Inn and Holiday Inn Express. These are cheap enough if booked early on, though can get pricier the nearer to the time it becomes.

We’ve got a preferred stag and hen party hotel option located in the lovely and historic Castlefield, which comes with a spa and gym and is just £40pp per night for board only, regardless of when booked. However, this place books up months in advance, so you’d better be quick if you want something cheaper than a Premier Inn that has great facilities too.

On this 3* hotel’s doorstep – bliss in a popular beer garden a stone’s throw away!

4* hotel

Manchester has a few decent 4* hotels but the key is to book these months out as they often go when the football events are booked up.

If you’re staying in the summer months, football season is over so you may just get a good deal! We have good relationships with two hotels in Manchester city centre at prices often cheaper than those in 3* hotels, especially in the summer months, with prices being around  £100 for 2 nights.

5* hotel

For 5* hotels you are talking a LOT of money! We don’t presently work with 5* hotels because we haven’t had a stagor hen party yet to want to pay such prices! However, if you can really splash the cash, then the lovely Hotel Gotham below is stunning and even has a rooftop terrace.

Though for an iconic landmark hotel in Manchester, though not strictly 5*, The Hilton on Deansgate is almost a must, especially with these views from its bar



We couldn’t possibly begin to list all the possible activities that may have come out of the flow-chart. Needless to say, each person is to their own! You will find many of the activities within the Hen Party Favourites and the Hen Night Favourites if you want to get a further feel for what you can do in Manchester on your hen party. Otherwise, we’ve got some pretty easy-to-follow categories like Hot Stuff, Sporty and Active and Creative and Foodie to name a few, so you are sure to find a hidden gem of an idea in one of these!

These suggestions are just some of the many Manchester hen party ideas you can choose from. The trick is to know the bride and balance budget with blowing everyone’s socks off!
