The Perfect Edinburgh Hen Party Itinerary

Heading to Edinburgh for one last girlie getaway as a single lady? As hen party experts, we have plenty of tips for how to make the most of your hen weekend in Edinburgh. Here’s our idea of the perfect Edinburgh hen party itinerary:


Hillside-Crescent_250712_052-h500pxArrive Friday evening and quickly settle into one of our Edinburgh hen party apartments. Whichever hen party package you’ve picked, you’ll only be a short walk from the city centre.

Head out for a delicious meal in Edinburgh’s historic Old Town. While the cobblestone streets aren’t the most high-heel-friendly, the gorgeous castle views and charming candle-lit pubs of this historic neighbourhood will be a magical start to your weekend.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of spooky fun, end the night with one of Edinburgh’s famous ghost tours (included in our Silver hen party package).

Get into the spirit(s) of the occasion with some delicious cocktails. Enjoy a cocktail-making class (included in our Diamond hen party package) or, if you prefer to leave the mixing to someone else, simply head to Harvey Nichols’ Forth Floor Bar and choose from their incredible cocktail menu. Yum!

Head back to your Edinburgh apartment where a ‘butler in the buff’ awaits to serve you all champagne. After a bit of bubbly and plenty of photos with the cheeky butler, it’s time to dance the night away as VIPs in Edinburgh’s best nightclubs.


Sleep in! Spend a lazy morning relaxing and enjoying a fresh continental breakfast (included in our Platinum hen party package).

Say goodbye to Edinburgh with a stroll through the Meadows or Princes Street Gardens – but promise yourself to return soon!
