5 Ideas for a Hen Party Weekend Away

A Girly Weekend in the French town, Lille

For my own hen do, I went away for a long weekend to the beautiful French town, Lille. One of the best things about Lille is that you can get there directly on the Eurostar and it only takes an hour. It’s the perfect picturesque town for tasting wine and cheese, picking up some macarons and shopping to your heart’s content. There’s plenty for your hen party to do; while we were there we booked a boat on the River Deule, visited an antique book fair and relaxed in the Central Town Square, full of 17th century Flemish and French architecture. If you’re looking for a quieter, cultural trip with your girls, then Lille is a great choice.
