We then went for our After Dark meal option which was at Strada and we had a set meal which was a 3 course and lovely. The next day we had afternoon tea at a Hilton Hotel which was incredible..the staff were lovely and couldn't of been more helpful to us. Our Cocktail Making Class that night was amazing at massula and the staff was great again. Overall the company did amazing..everything was organised as it should be and every single one of us couldn't believe the value we payed for such a amazing weekend! The bride also loved it and I would deffo recommend booking with UKGirlThing and I will in the future for future events. Well done UKGirlThing!!"

As well as everything we'd planned from beginning to end, we were really lucky with all the bits in between (like the weather, the friendly people on the train, the random bar we went in, the awesome busker we sang and danced with on the way to the club)! The hotel was fab, the spa was lovely, and our meal out and. Luv we're just brilliant. All in all it was amazing! And I have to say, coming from Brighton, I was surprised at how friendly everyone was in Bristol, door staff giving us directions, random people in the street, everyone was super lovely!"

"Larisa got back to me with options fitting my criteria within two days and was brilliant at responding to the many questions I had. She changed some options round to help me further and was extremely helpful without being pushy at all. Larisa made this stressful organising not at all stressful and is a godsend. I will definitely recommend this company to other maid of honours who are organising a hen do even for the most bridezilla brides demands, nothing was too much hassle."

good. I love that they contact back and forth via email rather than the other
companies where you receive call after call. It's also really handy that you
can choose the time for activities and get to see photos of the hotels. Other
companies don't tell you till 2 weeks before the event. Alice was great and really
accommodating with all my questions and answered promptly. Thank you for all
"The girls have been amazing, I've
had very little notice and responces from the rest of the party and the girls

savers and a pleasure to deal with"

again. In fact, I've already recommended them to a colleague of mine!"

With having a group with a mixed aged group finding something i would love and everybody else would love too seemed daunting until I found your website. . . The chocolate making class was absolutely amazing! Everyone all commented on how amazing the class was, passing all expectations, and how much everyone enjoyed the class. That includes the one person who wasn't a keen chocolate fan!! Coming to our hotel was fantastic, we weren't rushed and really got to enjoy the experience of making the chocolate lollies, coating the marshmallows and of course making the truffles. Everyone had lots of chocolate to take on which was fantastic. I even made an extra lolly for my daughter to bring home for her. The comedy club was so much fun too, everyone was in stitches and of course been at the front we where included in with the sketches! Thanks for the front row reservations, something i definitely would have resisted from doing but actually made the night even more memorable. The Hotel was great, really accommodating with having a group of 9 ladies asking millions of questions and raiding the supplies of reception, the breakie was something we all needed in the morning before heading home too (even made fresh breakie for those who had dietary requirements which was fantastic). Thank you once again for making a daunting task of creating your own hen do into such an amazing, fun and extremely enjoyable day/night."

Whereas the other place took 2 weeks with loads of quotes, it took 48 hours for UK Girl Thing to come up with a plan. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I like the fact that all the hens have their own individual payment plan, so the onus is not on the party planner."

A night out on the town as cave girls, and then to unwind on the Sunday with a relaxing spa treatment! The most amazing weekend ever that I will remember for the rest of my life! My sister done a fabulous job by organising such a fabulous weekend! Super chuffed! Now the final countdown is on! 24 days!"

"Just had my hen night last weekend and had to write a review about how good it was. Jessica was our organiser and she was fab the whole way through. We went to Nottingham and he cocktail making experience was absolutely brilliant, the meal was amazing. All in all a very happy bride to be and 10 friends. Thank you very much."
“Absolutely fantastic weekend. Hotel was first class and
everyone was raving about it. The cocktail making experience was a pleasant
surprise. Everyone was allowed to get so involved & we got so much in the
two hours we were there - this was a hit with all the girls! Will be back in Newcastle
- such friendly people & brilliant nightlife!”
"UKGirlThing..... Amazing service and so easy they put
everything in place and were so friendly :) everything a hen planner needed :) The
hen weekend in Bournemouth was amazing and everything the website said it would
be 12 very happy ladies :)"
“I picked Nottingham for my sister's hen weekend based mainly on
the Saturday activity of Quad Biking and then reading up the reviews.
Nottingham is a fantastic night out. From start to finish the hen and all her
chicks did not stop laughing. The hotel UKGirlThing made reservations for was
top notch, could not find fault, having the facilities of a spa after Quad
Biking was just perfect. Highly recommend the girls night in also, food
amazing. Well done UKGirlThing, I've already recommended you to a friend who's
organising her sisters hen weekend”
“Impressed with quick responses I received from any
concerns or questions I had. Staff really helpful, have recommended them to
friends. The hen party in Nottingham was fantastically well organised from the
first point of contact, staff were great! We enjoyed all aspects of the jungle
challenge, sumo crush and assault course great fun. We were lucky to have Ben
take photos and a video of the event. He was great fun as he snapped away. The hotel
was beautiful. Staff really helpful and rooms very comfortable. The breakfast
had a superb choice to choose from. Food was lovely. Staff were pleasant. On
entry to the club via the hotel we were given shots and I had a complimentary
cocktail which went down well. After using our 2-4-1 drinks vouchers in the
hotel bar we all had a great time - would definitely come again!!”
"Very helpful staff, lots of choice of
activities which state the price on your website which I found very useful. I
would definitely recommend UKGirlThing. I had a fantastic weekend thanks to

of the phone to help. Frankie was exceptional putting everything into place for
me. Everything ran like clockwork! The hotel was fabulous, cocktail making was

“Booking my hen do through UKGirlThing was so easy.
I chose what I wanted to do, and everything just flowed from the payment
tracker to the itinerary to the seamless organisation during my hen weekend of
activities. It made my hen do not only extremely enjoyable but stress free :-)
I had the BEST weekend ever!!!!”
“UKGirlThing were amazing with keeping in contact
with you! And they always answered any questions I had the same day!! I have
already recommended UKGirlThing to two people who I know that are planning a
hen do for their friends. The company took all the stress out of planning the
event, as people could log on a pay when they wanted. Would most definitely use
again if I was ever planning a hen weekend! Thank you. The weekend was amazing!
The hotel was very nice! All staff were very friendly!”
"I have just returned from a fantastic hen weekend in Nottingham with UKGirlThing and wow what a weekend. We had a fantastic time in Sherwood Forest with the jungle challenge, sumo wrestling and the assault course. The team at the venue were brilliant, the whole afternoon was really well run. Our videographer and adopted hen, Ben was great. Even getting prickled by the bushes to gain some great shots. The meal was great and the hotel offered us a great base. The pool was a great refresher the next day. Thanks UKGirlThing for helping us send our hen off to married life in style."
"Wow, myself and my chicks have had an amazing time in Nottingham at the Adrenaline Jungle!! The jungle challenges were good fun, as was the sumo crush, best fun was the assault course. Well organised!!! BEN the videographer from UKGirlThing came around the challenges and assault course with us, snapping away! He was a lovely guy and very entertaining smile emoticon The hotel was superb! The meal was fab too. Overall would definitely recommend Nottingham with UKGirlThing. We're all thinking if going back next year!!"
Tasmin Turner - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Cardiff
"I have just had the most amazing hen do in Cardiff! The weekend ran smoothly with no problems and I cant fault a thing, from the hotel to the cocktail making session, onto the meal and then the bar. Epic day! Epic night! We all had such a blast and would recommend any bride-to-be/hen party to book through UKGirlThing as its easy to book, payment tracker is brilliant, and the weekend its self ran like clockwork!! Thank you to all the team for their hard work, myself and all the girls loved every minute!!"
Elizabeth Waring & Sara Deeley - Spa-rty & After Dark - Nottingham

very well. She was understanding of all our needs and tried to accommodate us
wherever she could"

loved it. Everyone of the hens commented on how nice it was and the service there, Nottingham was second to none. The staff were very friendly and
Spa-rty: "We opted for the Spa-rty,
and it was perfect. Everyone was a little worse for wear after our Friday night
antics and I was worried that we would lose a few hens to bad hangovers but
everyone made it and everyone was so relaxed and we had an excellent time"
Restaurant: "We didn’t do an activity as
such, the meal was excellent, they offered 2-4-1 cocktails and the service and
food was excellent. There was a real party vibe in there too and we made
friends with the stag party at the table next to us."
Club: "We were treated excellently and that was excellent"
Sara Deeley - June 2015
Claire Smith & Tracey Broadhurst - The Dreamboys - Liverpool

Vanessa Abbott & Helen Cowlard - Burlesque Dance Class & River Cruise - Nottingham
Party Planner: "Sent an initial email to
enquire and got a phone call literally the same day – no pressure to book an
was handed over to the party organiser within a day or so"
Party Organiser: "Really can’t fault our
organiser – all enquiries and questions were answered swiftly and clearly, very
well organised and helpful throughout"
Hotel: "It exceeded everyones expectations – staff were courteous and went out of their
way to help – amazing!"
Dance Class: "Did the Burlesque and it
was fantastic – teacher was patient and friendly, props were good and was a lot
of fun. A bit hard to find though – perhaps better instructions as to where to
find the entrance (it was right round the back in what looked like a private
River Cruise: "Did the Burlesque and it
was fantastic – teacher was patient and friendly, props were good and was a lot
Additional Comments: "Our weekend was perfect and very well organised
from start to finish – payment was easy, all the activities were good, hotel
was superb and loved the little details, such as the transport from the river
cruise back into town and the VIP tickets into Oceana. We had Ben with us too
to film us for your marketing stuff and he was very friendly and non-intrusive
throughout his time with us. Really made my sister feel extra special!"
Hints & Tips: "Make sure you get every
person to pay their own deposits at the start – I didn’t and ended up
paying an extra £20 for people that subsequently dropped out. We did a Mr
and Mrs game for the bride and recorded her fiancés answers and she had a
forfeit for every answer she got wrong. Make sure you choose activities
that will suit everyone in your group and don’t be afraid to go in fancy
dress – we went out as builders (pink hard hats and high vis jackets) and
it was really well received everywhere we went. But we were the only group
on the cruise who were!"

weekend turned out: the staff at each destination/company were fantastic and we
were really impressed with how much was included in the price and the quality
of everything too! You made the whole experience as stress-free as possible and
the quality of service was fantastic without us having to pay extortionate
amounts for it! Thank you for a great weekend we'll always remember :)"

Party Organiser: "Bethany was great and assisted with any questions that I had after the booking."
Hotel: "Absolutely fine and the staff were brilliant"
Go Karting: "I had booked Go Karting and this was absolutely brilliant. The hen loved it (she is a great fan of the Grand Prix so this was perfect!). Everyone enjoyed racing around the track and it actually felt like a mini workout after driving those go-karts about, they are pretty heavy to steer!…A great time was had by all."
Additional Comments: "The whole weekend went well and everyone had a fantastic time, late nights all around and we were all trying to recover on the Monday! A sign of a great weekend away. Yes I would definitely book through UK Girl thing again. It was a lot easier for payments so I didn't have to deal with collecting a large amount of money. The payment tracker is great."
Hints & Tips: "Just search about your weekend away and where you are going (for bars & restaurants, activities) especially if there is a large group of you. I booked us into everywhere we went so we were not disappointed"
Lana Challis - June 2015
Yasmin Husain & Fatima Nixon - Spa-kle and After Dark - Liverpool
Party Planner/Organiser: "We had a great time in
Liverpool. Thanks for organising everything"
Spa-kle; "The lunch at the hotel was
really good. The massage was great too. And the hotel accomodated one of the
girls who could not have the facial she booked as she had just found out she
was pregnant. She had a manicure instead and was really pleased with it."
Restaurant: "They were really
accomodating. We were running late to get to the nightclub by 10.30 so they
made sure our food was delivered quickly. Plus, most of us wanted to order
something different to what was in the set menu (some wanted spicier or less spicy
food. A couple of us wanted 2 starters). This was not a problem for them"
Club: "The weekend went really
well. A fabulous nightclub and a great place to end our
evening. We all had a really great time and want to go back next year for a

would recommend to anyone."

Ellis Rose - June 2015
Laura Foster & Jessica Paling - Spa-kle Spa, Cocktail Making & AfterDark - Manchester
Party Planner/ Organiser: "the girls were extremely helpful"
Hotel: "Absolutely gorgeous hotel,each person had a double bed, this was amazing, especially for the ladies with babies, think they loved having all that space to themselves! Excellent location, we did get taxis, but that’s because we didn’t want to walk in heels, it was about a 5 minutes taxi from everything but if you walk its about 15 minutes, not far at all if you aren’t lazy bones like our party!"
Spa-kle Spa: "The treatments were lovely
and the therapists were very accommodating and lovely, they didn’t mind people
swapping what treatment they wanted and they even held off their break for an
hour to make sure we could all have treatments.!"
Cocktail Making: "The cocktail making was
excellent and such a great laugh, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, I would
recommend this to anyone, even for an afternoon with friends. It was so much
fun, the nibbles during the experience were lovely, then when the food platters
came out after (which we didn’t realise we had included) they were gorgeous,
one of the drinks pumps weren’t working in the room we were in so it gave out
flat lemonade, for this they gave us free cocktails with our food after! We
also had a pregnant lady who was given gorgeous non-alcoholic cocktails with no
problem at all."
Additional Comments: "Overall an absolutely excellent weekend. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, the girls were extremely helpful even with people dropping out a month before! Also, what you get for your money was amazing, we all spent about £35 each all weekend (that’s amazing for us and most of that was taxis!) and we were super full from all the food a drink that was included with the activities. Thanks so much for everything."
Hints & Tips: "Be organised, do everything super early and make
sure you get definite commitment before making any decisions, people do drop
out at the last minute and it is extremely inconvenient!"
Jessica Paling June 2015
Sophie Bradman & Suzanne McCutheon - Cocktail Making & ADONIS - Brighton
Party Planner: "I was very pleased with the
service we received from Katie, she was really helpful and very accommodating
when it came to some changes that we made. When I called for questions the
other staff that I spoke to were pleasant and helpful, I would definitely
recommend UK girl thing to friends and family."
Party Organiser: "Again Jessica was so
helpful and had to deal with so many changes that we made. I was very pleased
with the service I received."
Cocktail Making: "Everyone thoroughly enjoyed
the cocktail making party, the bride to be loved it! The Bar man made it funny
and enjoyable, and the food was amazing, we were expecting nibbles, but they
brought out 2 huge pizza’s plus vegetables and dips, breadsticks, breaded
chicken and more. The activity was definitely worth the money. I am so glad we
booked this for our day activity. We stayed in the venue after for drinks and
games, and as the sun came out in the afternoon the terrace out the back was
lovely sit out in. We had an amazing time."
ADONIS: "The drag queen (Lola
Lasagne) was very funny; she went down very well with our entire party. It was so great that the
venue turned into a club after, there were several rooms to enjoy and we had an
amazing time dancing all night, until our feet couldn’t take anymore."
Overall: "We had an amazing weekend and loved brighton as
whole. The bride to be enjoyed herself and that’s all
that mattered. Thank you for helping to organise this amazing weekend. We all
ended up having an awesome time, I would definitely recommend you to a friend
for service alone"

Hotel: "Beautiful hotel, lovely
quality from arrival to departure"
Cocktail Making: "Brilliant, actually lost
for words about how much fun we had – especially the bride to be!! If passing
on any thanks to the staff then Rob (definitely employee of the month, if they
have such a thing there) & Dean did a fantastic job"
Birdcage: "Super fun and great venue.
Have been to venues before and has felt quite intimidating with so many women
in one environment, however, the night had such a good mix of all ages/people
Additional Comments: "Everyone in the party was so impressed with how
the weekend went, not sure how could have gone any better with how everything
was organized. Hotel & activities all went as smoothly as planned from
arrival to departure. Can honestly say that would have entered my head to seek
and company to organsie for me as I’m quite and organised person!! However,
after this experience would defiantly recommend and do again ;-)"
Debbie Waterfield - May 2015
Felicity Hill & Rhian Jones - Girls Night In, Pole Dancing, After Dark and Spa-kle - Nottingham
Party Planner: "I've been meaning to send you a massive heartfelt thank you for making an incredible weekend happen! An excellent timely response was provided to the initial enquiry with a very friendly attitude willing to try and cater for all requirements. Rachel gave plenty of information and all questions I had (which were quite a lot throughout the booking!) were answered. I appreciated the call back and discussion that Rachel was very willing to have and all her attempts to cater for what I was interested in for the party. It made me feel very confident to go ahead and make the booking and the hens were very excited with what was planned!"
Party Organiser: "I've been meaning to send you a massive heartfelt thank you for making an incredible weekend happen! Karen was an excellent party organiser, again very willing to help and very patient with my numerous queries which was much appreciated! Nothing was too much trouble and again my very many (sometimes silly!) questions were answered with really helpful information and with a very friendly attitude which helped put my mind at rest as times became a bit more stressful closer to the event. It was the first hen do I’ve organised so all the support and reassurance was really appreciated! There were a couple of hiccups when the payment options changed but I still couldn’t fault the service as Karen remained in contact throughout and followed up to check the problem was sorted."
Hotel: "Really impressed with the
hotel, our package included a gold hotel and you could really tell! It was a lovely place to stay with a grand entrance and concierge who couldn’t do any more to help and assist. The look on the face of the bride to be was great when we arrived (we managed to keep everything secret from her including where she was going, where she was staying and what activities she’d be doing right up until it came to doing them which made the surprises throughout the weekend even more fab!). We also had vegetarians and a vegan amongst the party who were catered for throughout and the bride to be had a bottle of champagne in her room on arrival which was a lovely touch. Spa facilities were also fab as listed under the activities below."
Pole Dancing: "The day activity of pole
dancing was a brilliant laugh! The instructor who taught the pole dancing class was really down to earth and had us all laughing and giggling and made for a fantastic day activity! The studio where the class took place wasn’t anything fancy so I was a bit unsure when we arrived but needn’t have worried as the surroundings really didn’t matter when you have the pole equipment (including a hoop suspended from the ceiling which we all couldn’t wait to try out!), a fantastic instructor and great company!"
Restaurant: "The first nights evening activity included a 2 course meal (which a lot of the hens didn’t realise was included in the price so that went down well when they realised their drinks budget had then gone up haha!) followed by VIP Club entry"
Night Club: ". I have to say when I
realised that the club we’d chosen was in the basement of the hotel I was
really unsure because I was worried we’d end up spending too much time in the
hotel….but it turned out great because after the meal we headed back to the
hotel without telling the bride to be – and told her we were going to bed before
proceeding to take her to the secret door opposite the breakfast area for the
red carpet VIP entry. The look on her face was priceless when we stood the
other side of a door behind which you could hear the party tunes! We then had
champagne for everyone (included with the package) and our own area which was
great for the legs which were feeling a bit weary!"
Spa-kle Pamper: "We also had the spa day
activity on the second day which took place at the hotel and was definitely
needed to soothe those aching limbs after a couple of hours on the poles! Again
the staff in the spa were lovely, we had a champagne lunch provided and our own
little lunchboxes…..and the little touches like strawberries and chocolate
fondue to dip them in were fabulous! Everybody loved their treatments and the
fact that we had our own private room for the duration of the spa afternoon
made it really personal and a lovely touch. The pool was small but a really
lovely place to be with Jacuzzi and steam room. We also discovered the
relaxation room on our way back to our rooms so had a stop off in there for
half an hour – it was only supposed to be a photo opportunity but we didn’t
want to leave!"
Girls Night In: "On the second night we had
the ‘girls night in’ at the hotel which again I wasn’t really sure of as again
it was at the hotel (but to be honest we were never in the same part of the
hotel for very long so it didn’t feel like we were in the same venue all the
time and all the different activities made each ‘section’ feel like somewhere
new!) but I needn’t have worried as it was a fabulous end to an incredible
weekend! We were given another private room which we had from 6:30pm til late
(the end time was supposed to be midnight but as there was no booking
afterwards we were told we could have it as long as the party went on and clear
it in the morning which was great news). We were allowed to decorate it as we
liked so created a party room filled with balloons, wall banners and created a
photo wall of the bride to be in pictures with each of the hens and took in our
own drinks. There was a wii with some games which could also be used as a DVD
player and a dock for you to get your own music going. We chose the English
themed buffet beforehand so were expecting mini sausages, cheese and pineapple
on cocktails sticks and crisps etc but were amazed when pizzas, burgers and
fish and chips arrived! It was great to have our own private room which we
could have how we wanted and gave a really good personalized end to the weekend
– with lots of party games and karaoke then thrown in for good measure!"
Additional Comments: "I've been meaning to
send you a massive heartfelt thank you for making an incredible weekend
happen! I will definitely fill out the feedback form and return as soon as
possible along with some pictures of what was an absolutely amazing
weekend. Thank you once again for all your help in making memories that
will certainly last a lifetime! I'll send back the form as soon as I can.
Huge thanks once again :) :) :) An absolutely amazing weekend was had by
all! Memories were made which will certainly last a lifetime and the bride
to be couldn’t believe how many activities we crammed into one weekend!
The price was absolutely amazing value for what was included and everyone
in the party commented on how good value the package was. I would also
like to send a massive heartfelt thank you from myself and on behalf of
the bride to be and all the hens to both Rachel and Karen for making an
incredible weekend happen!"
Hints & Tips: "My main advice would be
plan as far ahead as possible! I started planning this weekend back in
September for the event to take place the beginning of May which seems
very early but it’s surprising how fast these things fly around. It’s also
a good way of then spreading the cost and with the online payment tracker
used by UK Girl Thing you’re able to pay in as little or large instalments
as you want and the hens can pay in themselves so the hassle is totally
taken out of chasing around for money (apart from the reminders you
obviously have to keep on top of!). Keep your hens updated with as much
information as possible and remember to enjoy yourself when it comes to
the weekend! Also, keeping everything a surprise was absolutely amazing to
see the surprise and happiness on the bride to be’s face as each activity
was revealed! With regard to games we found that charades inside balloons
(which have to be popped to obtain your charade) were a great ice breaker,
along with telling embarrassing/funny stories about the bride – or even
better having her tell them herself by giving her 3 key words for her to
then work out and tell the story and obviously Mr and Mrs is a must (just
hope they know each other well!) and finally a penis piñata and willy
hoopla certainly created a few hysterical moments"

Nadia & Emma Redit - Champagne Treasure Hunt, Luxury Afternoon Tea & The Dreamboys - London

Luxury Afternoon Tea: "Afternoon tea was absolutely brilliant, added a touch of class after a rather debauched night at The Dreamboys the previous evening ;) and it was a lovely place to unwind and get together to discuss the night before and look at photos, also a nice opportunity to thank everyone and give out gifts, the food was beautiful and the pianist was a lovely touch (he kept playing wedding related music for us which was very sweet)"
The Dreamboys: "The Dreamboys show was excellent, compare very funny, nice touch that a buffet was included. They were also very accommodating when we said that one of our party needed an aisle seat. Overall the show was enjoyed by everyone."
Hints & Tips: "You need more time than you think, don’t over pack your day with activities, the bigger the group the longer they take to organise! We did a Mr and Mrs game and had masks with the groom’s face on which was hilarious. All went smoothly."

Kirsty Barrs & Vicki Hipwell Girls Night In & After Dark Leeds
At the beginning of this month bride to be Kirsty and her hens enjoyed the hen party of a lifetime in Leeds. With thanks to he head bridesmaid Vicki and UKGirlThing, the girls had an amazing weekend! We caught up with Vicki to find out a little
more about her, Kirsty and their fantastic few days of fun!
The Bride to Be
Home town? Rotherham
The Groom to Be
Name? Chris French
Home town? Barnsley
Occupation? Section Manager
The Stag Do
Where? One crazy weekend in Benidorm!
How many attended? 14+
Activities? Lots of drinking.
How did the couple meet?
Kirsty's sister is best friends with Chris' sister and they finally got together after being friends and knowing each other a long time. The perfect match!
How long have they been together?
Over 3 years
Could you tell us a bit about the proposal?
Chris took Kirsty to London and he paid for an expensive hotel on New Year's Eve 2013. It was very exclusive and they had their own private view of the fireworks.
We were all waiting at home to see if he popped the question at midnight but he actually waited until they got back. With their favourite hot drinks and delicious
cookies, he proposed! Kirsty left us all at home on tenterhooks waiting for the big news! She was the happiest girl alive with a very beautiful engagement
ring. Everything she could have dreamed for.
Relationship to Bride to be? Best friend. We have known each other over ten years and grown up together. Through thick and thin, along with two other friends
and fellow hens Katie Hayes and Joanne Tennick we are always there for each other.
The UKGirlThing Party Planner
Everything ran smoothly
The UKGirlThing Party Organiser
Very efficient service. The party organiser was available for every little question that I had and the direct email was very handy. The organiser sounded genuine
and was very helpful when trying to answer my questions.
How did you travel to Leeds? We went by mini bus and trimmed it up with banners and a balloons along with the typical hen do blow up man.
Any games on the way? We didn't have time for games but every one was given a personalised goodie bag with naughty treats and cute handy items that might
be needed along the way.
Did you have a soundtrack? We had lots of 80's music and kept asking Dave the driver to turn it up!
Four star luxury. Another spot on hotel. I couldn’t believe what we got for our money. It made our weekend even better. The staff at the hotel were friendly and
very helpful. It didn’t feel like we were unwanted. On hen weekends in the past we have been seen as a rowdy bunch of ladies but they treated us with the upmost
respect and helped us at every point in the weekend, even giving us a little longer in bed on check out morning. The breakfasts were worth getting up for with
full English being perfect to soak up the alcohol.
In regards to the WII night - What a fab idea to get the weekend going after a busy day at work. It set the weekend up and we were not disappointed. The wii games
were great fun and when asked for a better range the hotel staff were more than helpful. We had a girls night in pyjama party. The pictures are fantastic!
During the weekend
Did you have games/ dares? On the first night we had a Girls Night In.
We played naughty pass the parcel where people won hen party style prizes like willy whistles and bunny ears. We played 'pin the willy on billy' and played truth
or dare style games like 'I have never'. On the night out Kirsty had to rate different men with her rating cards and each person had a dare to complete
from pass the parcel.
Any personal touches to the party weekend? The brides mum bought everyone a personalised hoodie and matching pyjamas. Everyone had hand made goodie bags and
we bought Kirsty's favourite Millie's cookie cake. Vintage rosettes all hand made to go with the overall navy and vintage wedding theme.
The meal at was amazing. We couldn’t believe what we had included in our package. The staff there were fantastic and all with minimal fuss as they had our reserved
table ready and the staff were on hand to help us at every moment.
The free entry package was brilliant. We had some fantastic photos taken there.
Were there any surprises?
We made Kirsty her very own sash and personalised the rest of the party. Each surprise was made from scratch and not one person had the same as us when we were
out thanks to our efforts. Throughout the weekend Kirsty got lots of surprises which made each day exciting. During the day after we decided to do something
random and we went to bingo! As chief bridesmaid I made a few phone calls and when we arrived, seven tables had been trimmed up and we were made to feel really
welcome. Not sure some of the old ladies appreciated such a rowdy group of inexperienced bingo players but it was just what we needed before a busy night out!
Was there a theme/dress code?
No dress code. Just look glam and gorgeous!
We had one of the best weekends in a long time. We were all amazed at what fantastic value for money it was. This made it for us as we never felt like we had been
ripped off. I would certainly book again in the future. I was a little unsure about booking with an agency that organized everything after booking but I had
no reason what so ever to worry. Everything was planned brilliantly. The itinerary was clear and the party planner was amazing. The weekend went so well. Amazing
weekend. Thank you for making our weekend so special! Classy birds do Leeds... That's what we set out to be!

Maisey Haigh & Sarah Fenton - Cocktail Making & AfterDark Bristol
Party Planner: "When we first enquired about UKGirlThing and what they can offer for the hen do we were organizing we were very impressed with Brian and how much detail he gave us. Understandably we had lots of questions about the events, accommodation and price and Brain was always quick to answer our questions fully."
Party Organiser: "After booking Lauren became our party planner. The booking went through very smoothly and again I could not fault Lauren. We came across questions we had forgotten to ask during enquiring and Lauren never failed to answer them. She made planning a hen do for 24 people extremely easy and stress free!"
Hotel: "I believe we booked a silver package, and all guests were extremely impressed with the hotel provided. It exceeded our expectations. Comfortable beds, very clean, tidy and modern rooms. Staff were always friendly and great at advising routes to take to get the places. Breakfast was excellent, full English and a continental option."
Cocktail Making: "I think the day activity of cocktail classes was one of the best aspects of the hen do. The bride and all guests had an absolute whale of a time! The staff made the whole event very amusing. They prepared lots of games to play and we were in fits of giggles for the whole session. The food and drink provided was not only of a high standard but also plentiful. I would recommend this event to any groups of hen dos who are up for a good laugh!"
Restaurant: "Our evening activity was a meal at Frankie and Bennies. The meal was a set menu with plenty of options to choose from"
Club: "Free entry to club called Syndicate and a free bottle of bubbly for the bride (which once we arrived they kindly upped to 3 free bottles). The night club had a great selection of music across two rooms. Let’s just say we made it back to the hotel at 4:30am so we can safely say we made the most of the night and danced non stop!!"
Overall: "The whole weekend was absolutely faultless. Everything ran very smoothly and I have had nothing but positive comments from all guests. I never expected the weekend to be as good as it turned out! Every aspect had been thought of by ukgirlthing and all we had to do was turn up and have fun! We have already recommended UKGirlThing to all of our 24 guests that attended the hen do. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is planning a hen or stag do, as I honestly could not think of a negative comment if I tried. I’m so grateful as you made it extremely easy to give our bride a fantastic weekend she will never forget!
Hints & Tips: "Definitly use the staff at the hotel, they gave us maps of the local area and told us if places were in walking distance or whether we would need a taxi (and if we needed the later they would book it for us, so we really had little to organize ourselves). We would also say use internet selling sights such as ebay to find hen do games and accessories as there is a huge range and cheaper than being brought in stores."

Hints & Tips: "We did a “Mr & Mrs” Quiz on the way to Brighton for the Bride to Be, with questions we had previously asked her fiancé.

VICKI NICOL - JULY 2014
Laura Wojantia / Natasha Antonakis-Taylor The Dreamboys & AfterDark Brighton
Party Organiser: "What can I say; she was amazing (I’d say that even if I wasn’t biased)! Thank you so much for organising our sea view rooms at the hotel – the bride said it was a completely perfect weekend so I can’t ask for much more than that!"
Hotel: "The location was a winner; right on the seafront! The reception staff were lovely & couldn’t do enough for us (including bringing us buckets of ice for our Prosecco)! Our rooms were both sea view, adjoining & HUGE. Plus air con was very welcome in the heat! I would definitely stay here again"
The Dreamboys: "OH MY DAYS. The drag queen was hilarious & the boys were fit (majority haha). We only had 3 strippers but it was enough! Special shout out to Johnny on the door <3 All the girls loved it! We were seated at the back of the club in two booths. Initially I was gutted we weren’t at the front but these were definitely the best seats in the house! We had room to dance, stand on the chairs & we were all sat in a semi-circle. The bride was ‘dragged’ on stage & got to perform the lift from Dirty Dancing, haha. Although I think she was relived she wasn’t chosen for the ‘towel over the head’ scene!"
Club: "We managed to get to the club before free entry stopped & then took advantage of the half price cocktails! The club is very small & hot but the music was mint. After we left we went to another club which was decent; especially the free shots!"
Overall: "Perfect! I can’t thank everyone who’s helped enough. Thank you so much; the bride absolutely loved it. I'm thankful for our blog also - stag do games by Kat. We tried to do international drinking rules (lasted about an hour) but ‘Gecko’ & ‘Shark Attack’ are probably still going to get shouted when we’re together at the local! We also used dare cards which were hidden in the layers of pass the parcel. The bride got ‘rub your head on a hairy man’s chest’ which was lovely in the heat. In fact the man she chose was Spanish & didn’t quite understand, then tried to charge her for it haha.
Hints & Tips: "Go with the flow (but try to avoid the M25). If you’re ever in Brighton & a fan of Greek food; try Beach View restaurant, it was delicious. Oh & Umi is right next to Buddies’ 24 hour restaurant! Sitting in a packed restaurant full of drunk people at 2am is hilarious; the pepperoni pizza was insane, but I definitely didn’t need the extra vodka I ordered. There is also so many gorgeous little cafes on the beach for breakfast!"
Laura Wojtania / Natasha Antonakis-Taylor July 2014

Club: "The club was exciting, we managed to get 3 free bottles of bubbly which was much appreciated. The manager even took us to a private area even though we weren’t on the VIP list. I was delighted to get asked for id at the age of 36!"
Overall: "Everything about the weekend went perfectly to plan and with 19 people to contend with that is a challenge. I am really grateful to UKGirlThing for assisting our party. Everyone thinks I was super organized but really it was all you guys!"
Hints & Tips: "I did a scrap book for the Hen (goodbye Miss … hello Mrs ….)and she absolutely loved it, I left a few pages blank so we can fill with hen party pictures. Each person got a party bag! Now that was fun getting all 19 bags on the train. Items: bottle of water, paracetamol, retro sweets, tea bags, lipsticks, personalized cocktail stirrers, a charm for their glass and a few other things"
ELIZABETH TELLWRIGHT - JULY 2014

Hotel: "Hotel was perfect location, Taxi rank opposite and right in the hustle and bustle of where I wanted us to be. Would certainly recommend as perfect hotel for Birmingham, Broad street and Brindley place are perfect – especially when the sun is shining!"
Cocktail Making: "The cocktail making was something I wanted to do and I will admit that a few people in the group were not looking forward to it – the hen being one of them! But the bar pulled off a winner, it was hysterical and everybody had an absolute blast! The party platters were awesome too. Cant rate it enough- if you haven’t done it – Do it!"

GEMMA MANSELL JULY 2014
Kerry Hennessy Cocktail Making & VIP AfterDark London
Party Organiser: "Thank you so much for all your help organising the Hen party. I also want to thank you for your patience, whilst I was in hospital unwell"
Hotel: "The hotel wasn’t bad although we did have a bit of a mix up with the rooms. I myself was in hysterics and its funny looking back now. Not quite sure what happened there but they gave us all free drinks to apologise"
Cocktail Making: "The cocktail place was amazing and far better than what I had imagined, we all got very tipsy and the girls all loved the idea. Sobered up slightly with our party platters, thanks for that"

KERRY HENNESSY JULY 2014
Vikki Nelson - Cocktail Making & AfterDark Liverpool
Party Planner: "Good communication, very helpful and informative with all my questions"
Party Organiser: "I made lots of changes to the original booking, adding people on and taking them off, even changing the dinner booking the week prior to the party but nothing was too much trouble!"
Hotel: "Absolutely loved the hotel, the rooms were beautifully decorated, the beds were extremely comfortable (didn’t even notice the hen snoring away beside me!), the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble plus breakfast was delicious."
Cocktail Making: "We had a cocktail making class was good fun for everyone but we had booked it for 12pm which was perhaps a bit too early as some of the hens were a bit hungover so the atmosphere was a bit flat! However, they provided a complimentary lunch which was lovely and helped to perk the party up a bit again!"
Restaurant: "We opted for a Mexican meal which was very nice, our waiter could not have been more helpful, even giving me a free cocktail because I didn’t like the one he had originally made (even though I had finished it anyway!), the food was delicious and the location was central and easy to find."
Club: "We ended up going back to a club we had been in the previous night and staying there with some complimentary bottles of champers!"
Overall: "Overall the weekend was excellent, Liverpool as a whole was an amazing place and everyone was so friendly - I would highly recommend it as a hen destination. Although I still had to do a lot of back and forward with people changing their minds etc, it was made much easier by having one contact point for everything, rather than if I had booked all activities separately myself. The group payment tracker was also a godsend as I didn’t have to take responsibility for chasing people up for money!"
Hints & Tips: "My tip would be not to fill your schedule too much as you will want some free time to see the sights and get your bearings. Also, we booked a private booth at a club we went to one night with some bottles of champers etc which was good as all the girls had a central point to come back to if we wandered off to mingle with the locals lol!"
VIKKI NELSON - JULY 2014

Overall: "Everything went as very well, over all we were very pleased with what was included in the package for the price. The ease of having one price to pay and a great package at a great price! Using the online link was a great advantage too!"
Hints & Tips: "Leave enough time between each thing planned, as a group it takes longer to gather everyone and the walk can take longer between venues"
LAURA WILSON - JULY 2014
Sam Hawley - Tank Driving, Cocktail Making & AfterDark Nottingham
Party Organiser: "Very helpful and friendly throughout the whole booking process"

VICKY JACKSON - JULY 2014
Hazel Duggs / Michelle Box - Art of Seduction Class, Perfume Making & Cocktail Making
Party Planner / Organiser: "Exceptionally helpful and ensure that I had all the information required before formalizing the event"
Hotel: "Hotel Location; rooms; breakfast; dinner and overall experience excellent. I would us the hotel again for business and pleasure"
Art of Seduction Class: "The art of seduction class wasn’t quite what I anticipated but actually turned out to be a great ice breaker; we had only meet all the ladies twenty minutes prior and the next minute were discussing names for men’s genitalia; sex stories and the like. This was a little different to what we thought as I had visualized flirtatious dancing in a more burlesque style than “blow up dolls” and sex aids. But as I said once we have wine; the fun times rolled I would recommend a potential rewrite of the brief to ensure that a potentially more prudish group could be spared the embarrassment. That aside Gaynor Weather had us blushing and laughing out loud."
Perfume Making: "Perfume Making Class was an excellent day activity; good interaction for a “morning after” task that kept us interested and inspired. Novotel was a great location and Jayne was a patient and informative tutor. Good times had by all"
Cocktail Making: "We arrived ten minutes late due to a directions issue but this was not an issue for Revolution. We were located for our Cocktail Making Class. This was great and everyone had fun and Dave our barman was very good with the group; even when the hen smashed a glass over the whole bar whilst competing with her bridesmaids."
Overall: "UKGirlThing is a fantastic website with packages to suit any discerning events planner or henzilla. The weekend was ease to coordinate once we had the package agreed and payment could not have been easier. I am already reviewing options for group of friends for a pre-Christmas weekend and have recommended to several people with birthdays; hens and stags already"
Hints & Tips: "Pick activities that will interest all of your group but not necessarily at the same time and more importantly mix up them up so you have variety. Be wary of times and locations; for example I checked all the location prior to the weekend and arranged taxis"
HAZEL DUGGS / MICHELLE BOX - JULY 2014
Danielle Bostock - Cocktail Making Cardiff
Party Organiser: "Fantastic service – always willing to answer my (usually silly!) questions and lots of information provided"
Hotel: "Hotel was stunning – better than we imagined"
Cocktail Making:"Absolutely LOVED the cocktail making – easily the highlight of the weekend and enjoyed by everyone."
Overall: "Overall we had an absolutely fantastic weekend. Thanks again for all of your help. Definitely could not have been easier to organize than it was with UKGirlThing and the package prices are amazing for what is included."
Hints & Tips: "Mr and Mrs quiz was a winner. Tell your hens the payment date closes a week before it does to avoid the last day stress!!"
DANIELLE BOSTOCK - JULY 2014

JENNIFER GARDNER - JULY 2014
FIONA ADAMS -PARTY BUS AND DANCING DIVA MEDLEY BRIGHTON
Party Planner: "We couldn’t fault the service we received while we were planning and booking the party. We always received a friendly and quick response and nothing was ever too much trouble. We had enquired about several different packages and received multiple quotes for these to ensure we got exactly what we wanted for the weekend."
Party Organiser: "We were well looked after from the initial booking right up to the weeks before the hen weekend. We had regular emails to keep us updated on payment deadlines and activity itineraries etc. Such a friendly, helpful service and we felt that they would do anything they could to make sure our party was a success. Immediately after the hen party we received an email asking how the party had gone. Lauren seemed genuinely interested to find out if we had had a good weekend."
Party Bus: "We booked the party bus for our evening activity at Gemma’s request. We were asked to arrive at the Bar by 7pm for pick up, we managed to find Russell, our party bus chauffer for the evening. He made sure we had a good time on the bus and actually came into the venues with us to make sure we would be ready to hop on the bus for the next stop. He also changed one of the venues to a cocktail bar last minute so we could avoid the football! The bus was great fun with lots of cheesy music, and by the last stop everyone was up on their feet dancing in the aisles!"
Dancing Diva Medley: "We choose the dancing divas medley class for Gemma as she loves to dance! We weren’t exactly sure what to expect but in the end we knew we had made the right choice. We were taught a routine to the Pussycat Dolls, Rhianna and Beyonce. Our instructor Lucy was fantastic and made sure we all had a great time. It might not have been everyone’s cup of tea to start with, but by the end of the class everyone had a smile on their face and was giving it everything!"
Overall: "Overall the weekend was a huge success! We really couldn’t have asked for things to turn out better. Gemma had a fantastic send off and in her own words “I couldn’t have asked for a better hen weekend”. We all had a great weekend and it was such a relief knowing all that planning and organization had paid off. Yes, we would definitely use UKGirlThing again and recommend to family and friends. Booking through UKGirlThing really made the organization easy and hassle free."
Hints and Tips: "We planned a few surprises to make the weekend extra special for Gemma! We decorated the hotel rooms with balloons, banners, cakes, t-shirts and sashes. We also made up personalized “survival kits” for everyone which included shots, paracetamol, plasters and personalised love hearts. And on the last day we gave Gemma a hen party memento book with messages from all the hens, that she will have to keep as a memory of the weekend."
FIONA ADAMS - JULY 2014

AMY KILBY - TREASURE HUNT EXPERIENCE AND BISTRO LIVE - NOTTINGHAM

"The hotel was again first class. It is a lovely hotel with great facilities. The breakfast was amazing and had everything you could want. The buffet that was put on for the Friday night (girls night in) was again first class…we were expecting a few sausage rolls but had more of a banquet!!! The bar area was brilliant and had a very pretty setting just off the bar. All in all this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. the hotel was amazing!!! Food was first class and hotel setting was very pretty and very central to everything"
"The assault course was by far the highlight of our weekend!! It was so funny and well organised"
"Our Thriller dance master class was brilliant but had we enjoyed the assault course just a little bit more"
"Everything was just perfect .Our weekend was just amazing. All my party could not believe we had all this in our price, such amazing value and everything was taken care of so we could just concentrate on having a great time. I cannot recommend UK Girthing highly enough – all my friends will use them in the future for girl’s nights away – as will I!! Big thanks to my Party Planner + Party Organiser for making my special birthday weekend so much fun!! I have recommend your service to all my friends and men too!!"

Nerys Davies - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Bristol
"The hotel was so convenient for our weekend, just a couple of minutes from some lovely shops and best of all close to Krispy Kreme doughnuts !!! :) Rooms and hotel was clean, staff were friendly, breakfast was lovely and location was just perfect
Our afternoon of cocktail making was great, we had such a great laugh. Even though we were 2 less , they still gave us drinks in their place and the food was gorgeous. Cocktail master class at revs was a real treat. We all had so much fun making and tasting the cocktails and the chilli shots !!, A big thanks to our barman for putting up with us, were even going to put our master class to the test and make some cocktails for the local hen weekend on march the 8th Complete value for money. And the food platter at the end was delicious
Food at the restaurant was lovely. Excellent value for money and 3 course, we were just too full to eat it all, great location as well as it was right opposite our hotel, friendly staff who decorated our table ready for our evening meal
A short taxi ride after down to the club where we spent the rest of the night dancing away and yet again more drinks. before heading back to the hotel around 3.
Thanks again for such an enjoyable weekend and will certainly be recommending you to others. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable hen weekend, Lots of fun, laughs, food and drink. We couldn’t have asked for more. Everything had been organized well and that made our weekend run smoothly and. If I was to change I would recommend the 3 course meal for the Friday night instead as we were pretty full up on food by the evening on the Saturday after breakfast, food platter and the 3 course meal. But otherwise it was really really good"
Hints & Tips
"Have your big meal on the Friday night (arrival night) not the Saturday as we did, we struggled to get tipsy with the amount of food we had even though we had been drinking cocktails all afternoon"

Lorna Bayley - Indoor Karting, Cocktail Making & Comedy Show - Bristol
Party Planner - "All questions replied to promptly and extremely friendly, no question was a stupid one and felt like every details was in hand. So many quotes requested and always sent back quickly with all changes made, even for different packages within the same booking"
Party Organiser - "So friendly and helpful. Couldn't have made the booking more smooth and when I slightly misunderstood a minor detail I received a phone call directly to me to clearly explain. Just brilliant service!"
"The weekend was lots of fun, all activities and the weekend in general went really smoothly and the Bride had a great time. Would 100% recommend you - no stress as UKGirlThing did all bookings. Your group just has to turn up and even better with the personal payment tracker. We were a little dubious in the beginning about using a company to set up a hen do which is usually so personal but I have been blown away by the professionalism of UKGIRLTHING and how the weekend could be tailored to the bride and all the people in the hen group. You poor people had to make a total of 16 quotes or something for me before we were all happy and there was never any complaint from you guys even before we had 100% said yes to going with you. Truly amazing experience and have already been recommending you to people who I know have hen and stag parties coming up as they are engaged at the moment...both young and old lol. THANK YOU so much for all of your help and patience with all the questions etc, and for helping greatly to make the weekend one for them all to remember and me to remember vicariously through them and the pictures. not sure if this is relevant but I feel I should say it...we searched a number of different websites before deciding to take the leap. UKGIRLTHING was by far the most professional looking website - not too tacky and the way in which you put a very decent description of what you would get with each activity was what made our minds up in the end. Don't go changing it too much in the future as what you have is clear, efficient and most of all it is working for you. Thanks again"
Hints & Tips
"Tailor the trip exactly to your Bride and you are guaranteed to have a good time. Don't be afraid to ask anything from your planner, it took all the stress out of a hen doo weekend. I planned and booked the entire weekend and due to illness had to pull out and the entire weekend still ran like clockwork"

Lucy Williams - Pole Dancing, Cocktail Making & After Dark - London
"Our Party Planner explained everything to me about the whole process of booking my Hen party. I really liked that the person really knew what she was talking about and made me feel safe booking with you
Our Party Organiser was always very quick and helpful when getting back to me with any questions I had and made it a very easy process booking my hen party with you.
Pole Dancing was great fun, the teacher really knew what she was talking about and was very relaxed with us taking photos and messing about during the lesson.
Cocktail making was my favourite activity, the teacher made it fun for everybody whether they were drinking or not, and got everybody involved. The bar itself was very nice and can’t wait to go there again next time I’m in London.
Overall I was very happy with service received and how well everything was organized. I loved the online booking process were I could see who had paid. My only main downside to the weekend was how far everything was from each other which made it all feel a bit rushed however I do understand London is a big place and this may not be helped.
Everyone in my party could not believe how much we got out of the weekend for such a small price. It was so easy booking with you and everyone I spoke with were very friendly and helpful. I could not recommend you enough to anyone booking a Hen weekend."

Jasmine Day - Indoor Karting & VIP After Dark - London
"From first emailing UKGirlThing, they had so much to offer that I was unsure whether I was being stitched up. But once speaking over the phone I realised they were clued up and obviously did this all the time. They had an answer to all of my questions.
When we finally did the booking our Party Organiser was on the ball with everything. As a group we were continuously adding and taking people off the booking but it was no problem for our Party Organiser, she just kept me up to date with prices and changes in availability etc.
The rooms were lovely, I would have expected to pay loads for this kind of apartment!
Go karting was brilliant, although we struggled to find the place and were an hour and a half late, they still managed to fit us in.
Overall the weekend was great. The value for what we received was excellent. £140 for everything whereas I would normally expect to pay that price for just the apartment! The only trouble really was on our end with finding the places and being on time. But it was all part of the fun with a weekend in London."
Hints & Tips
"Make sure you give yourselves enough time to be where you need to be. We got lucky with go-karting. I did tons of research on how to get to places but still messed up slightly."

"Lovely treatments! and the Resturant was Lovely - Thank You!
What a fab weekend we all had! I cannot thank you enough for all your help with it all! It really was amazing! The girls organised me a butler in the buff for the Friday evening after the lovely treatments! Plenty of drink was flowing all weekend too. Would do it every weekend if we could! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!"

Joanne Hulme - Mini Tank Driving & After Dark - Leeds
"The Hotel lived up to our expectations and more! Value for money within the total price paid for the package and well located too, rooms were spacious and clean. Ideal really.
The tank driving was brilliant fun, what more can we say? It was something a bit different and definitely memorable. Only way it could be improved is if we could have raced the tanks against each other, but still thoroughly enjoyed by the whole group!
Restaurant had a nice busy atmosphere and was only a few minutes away from hotel by taxi. Food was really nice and staff really friendly. Then nightclub located just a short walk away and VIP entry came in really handy as was very busy, so great, no queuing for us! Really lively and good atmosphere, exactly what we wanted. Danced the feet off ourselves!
Not a great deal more we can say except a great weekend was had by the whole group. We want to do it all again! Would definitely recommend Ukgirlthing to friends and just looking for another excuse to arrange another! Book again-Most definitely!!!"

Gemma Smale - Perfume Making & Murder Mystery - Nottingham
"Our Party Organiser was always at the end of a phone or email. She was quick to respond to any queries I had. Our booking wasn’t simple (in my opinion) in that we had a girl requiring disabled access and several girls with special dietary requirements. Again none of this was an issue she spoke with venues in order to make sure everything fitted our needs and totally put my mind at rest :-) Even when there was a last minute emergency re dietary requirements for one of the girls, she sorted it straight away & reassured me. General care and attention was fab and she offered advice and tips for the weekend which were fab! She was amazing!
The hotel was wonderful. The staff were incredible. Polite, friendly, helpful and nothing was too much. The rooms were amazing and the food just delicious! The chef made a special dinner for the bride to be as she is veggie & gluten free and brought it up to her personally :-) So close to town and station as well so it was easy to get around. I couldn’t have asked for more. I knew it would be lovely but It surpassed my expectations
We had our own private room so just the 8 of us for the perfume experience. It made it that much more personal and the lady representing the perfume studio was wonderful! We made some fab perfumes and it was enjoyed by all!
The Murder Mystery Party was absolutely fantastic! Everyone dressed up and totally got in character. The actors really made the evening too and were a lot of fun. Having it personalised with the groom best man and wedding venue weaved into the plot was a fabulous touch. The food was also amazing as were the staff waiting on us. They even let us bring our own bottle of bubbly in without charging corkage!! Superb experience. The VIP entry into the club was fab too. A special area just for us with a champagne cocktail for the girls, cocktail for b2b and a glass full of haribo!! They knew who i was when we turned up too. It was a really nice touch and a fab way to end the evening"
The weekend was perfect! It went smoothly and without a hitch I couldnt have asked for more. The girls were all blown away! I couldnt have done it without my Party Organiser :-) I would recommend you all in a heartbeat. The service and support is second to none I wouldn’t dream of suggesting anybody else! ;-)

Jade Bytheway - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Leeds
"Can't thank you enough for the amazing service you provided. You were helpful from day one and made sure to thoroughly check with us at every given chance all was running smoothly.
The Cocktail Making was out of this world. Very entertaining and very hospitable, even down to replacing my cocktail shaker the following morning as I had accidentally left it there (probably due to a sip of alcohol I may have consumed).
Well it certainly was a hen weekend I will never forget. Everyone in my party said how fantastic the deal was for the price we paid. It was all very well put together and we enjoyed every second. On the Saturday night we went out dressed in uniforms which was lots of fun. So much fun that I ended up falling down stairs badly bruising both shins good and proper ha ha! Something I will never forget and I still have the war wounds to prove it. Was definitely all worth it. I would recommend your company to anyone, seriously you are the best!!! Thanks again, to the absolutely fantastic team who made my weekend."
Hints & Tips
Be careful around stairs

Joanna Buchanan - Grease Dance Class & After Dark - Edinburgh
"Your help & service was amazing throughout the whole process of the organisation, I will strongly recommend you to anyone I hear of having a hen or stag party.
I would also like to tell you how accommodating and wonderful the Marriott hotel was during our stay. They ensured we all received twin bedrooms, and not only that twin doubles! The staff were brilliant at making sure we had enough fridges to chill our champagne, organizing taxis for us throughout the whole weekend, and were generally friendly and gave us lots of advice and tips on where the best places to go were. To be honest I had expected (for the price we paid) for it to be a dated hotel and the staff may have been hostile towards us with us being a large hen party. However I couldn't have been more wrong, the hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed in, on a direct public transport route into town, and the staff were efficient, friendly and genuinely interested in our stay.....one waiter even made sure we had enough tables to all sit together at Breakfast and sung to the bride as she walked in.
Our Grease dance class was a right hoot! The bride to be absolutely loved it, the teacher was great and very fun!
The restaurant was such a great choice! The food was delicious, and we ended up staying there all night as it was such a good venue.
Once again thank you for ensuring we had a great weekend and one to remember!"
Joanna Buchanan - September 2013
Rebecca Hey - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
"Friendly, great communication, helped me all the way, gave me all details regarding booking, payments etc.
I booked a silver package, and it was amazing, the hotel was great location, clean, big rooms, great bar and restaurant for breakfast, my upgraded bridal room was huge it had 2 double beds and a big lounge area.
Cocktail lesson. excellent everyone said how great it was. Although there was 33 of us the guy helped us all make cocktails, games were played, lots of drinks for the money, when we go there they had a power cut so they asked if we could wait 30mins and offered us free complimentary drinks bringing us 6 jugs of cocktails. Everyone had such a laugh and loved it even the food after the lesson was amazing.
Amazing weekend I couldn’t have asked for more. Everything went so fast and all activities flowed into the other."
Rebecca Hey - September 2013
Samantha Woods - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Newcastle
"My Party Organiser was great, extremely friendly and helpful. She was there when I needed to ask a question and made me feel really at ease when trying to organize such an important night out.
The Hotel was brilliant. The rooms were clean, spacious and the breakfast was delicious!!
Cocktail making was by far the best part. So much fun, everybody loved it. We had such a laugh I would recommend it to anyone and we fully intend on doing it again. The lady who did our class, Grace was amazing and she made it brilliant for us.
Yeah we had a great weekend thanks! Overall I loved my hen night and everybody had a great time. I would love to go back to Newcastle and do it again. It took all the stress out of organizing the night myself and I felt it was good value for money."
Hint & Tips
My only recommendation Is that if you do cocktail making I would say it would have been better to stay out and continue the night whereas we went back to the hotel to get changed for our meal and it broke the night up a bit too much.
Samantha Woods - September 2013
Sue Mills - Cocktails Making & After Dark - Nottingham
"I changed the location several times and my Party Organiser continued to re plan the weekend over and over till I decided. Excellent customer service.
Cocktail Making was fantastic and the was food excellent.
The food in the Resturant was unbelievably gorgeous.
Altogeher we had the most unreal time! I can't thank you enough. Couldn't have been planned any better!!!"
Sue Mills - September 2013
Amanda Lannon - Cocktail Making & Afterdark - Liverpool
"From beginning to end I received excellent help, even sorting me out a new location when it was advised where I wanted to go would be unsuitable due to other events taking place there at the time. (prices would massively increase)
I was kept up to date with all matters of my booking , I could always get in touch easily with my party planner If I needed any clarification and the itineraries that were sent where great to let the girls know what was going on.
The location of the hotel was brilliant and the breakfasts were excellent, the rooms were a little small but that’s more down to how much stuff we had with us for the weekend
I am so glad we chose the cocktail making class. It was so much fun and something everyone could enjoy and get involved in. We had a lot more drink than I expected and the food was great too. Highly recommended for Hens.
I am glad we booked the Resturant that we did, as I didn’t want anything too heavy before a night out and it was just right. The service was great and the food was lovely. the bar that we went to for our afterdark experience was really good too.We had a VIP area with champagne and plenty shots were offered. It was in a good place where we didn’t feel totally separated as some of the bars we visited afterwards tended to take us to VIP areas that were out the way of the atmosphere.
Overall I loved my hen weekend and couldn’t fault anything about it. It was organized, stress free and was perfect for us to just have fun! The whole weekend has been brilliant. I will recommend UKGirlthing and I am sure my hen party will be using you when they come to book theirs too!"

Fiona Simpson - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Newcastle
"We had a Gold hotel booked and it was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better hotel, the staff were friendly, the rooms were all next to each other, breakfast was included and even the beds were comfy! The booking in process was so simple as they already had our details; it was just a matter of picking up the keys
Brilliant location (Cocktail Making) the barmen were outstanding, we were plied with drink from the minute we arrived and the butler in the buff went down a treat! Great atmosphere as the bar was closed to everyone else which made it a more intimate experience which the group overall thought was better than being on show. The actual cocktail making was such fun, we all got the chance to make a cocktail each and we were all given drinks on arrival, shots, and bubbly. There was crisps, dips, sweets, and sausage rolls on the bar area for us to pick at whilst we were drinking. They set aside a private area for the group after the cocktail experience as we were still having such a great time. They also put our names down for a private seating area in the evening"

Sarah Matthias - Cocktail Making & Dreamboys - Cardiff
"Both myself and they rest of my party were very impressed with the gold hotel we booked we had 2 rooms a joining, not far from train station so it couldn’t have been better
Having never done anything like this before, the cocktail making was great even though we didn’t have as much time as planned due to a refurbishment we were offered free entry into club later with some extra drinks. The staff who looked after us were friendly and the food was lovely, It was brilliant and so much fun.
The Dreamboys were fantastic we had seats at the front row , we had a prefect view, buffet food was lovely with free entry cocktails and spent the rest of the evening in the club. Fantastic
My weekend was fantastic from start to finish it included everything I wanted with no hassle. I would definitely use again knowing that everything went great."
Hints And Tips
I printed out maps to get us to each venue which were handy. Other than that have fun.

Laura Powell - Spa-rty & After Dark - Leeds
"My Partys Organisers were very friendly and helpful, they made everything easy for me and took away the hassle of arranging the hen do myself
The Hotel was lovely, everyone thought it was clean and modern and the rooms were all allocated well with no problems occurring
Very well organised and everyone commented on how different the sparty was. Beauticians were very pleasant and friendly. Treatments and lunch with the chocolate fountain went down a treat. A very girly afternoon.
I had a fantastic hen weekend thank you. It was well organised and such a laugh! Everything flowed well and everyone spoke of how much they enjoyed a more relaxed hen do instead of spending all day in the pubs! Very well worth contacting UKGirlThing, takes the pressure and stress away from you and can be very accommodating."
Hints & Tips
Speak to the organizer about which bars are best to go to, to save wasting time.
Shark attack, we asked each bar dj to randomly shout shark attack, each girl has to get both their feet off the ground anyway they can. The last one to do so has to finish their drink off. Two teams with a model from each. Each group had to dress the model to create a wedding dress using newspaper, sellotape and loo roll. Very funny indeed. My hens each gave me a present of which it was something that linked our friendship and I had to guess who the gift was from. Some very silly pics from my younger more unattractive days Carried a gigantic inflatable penis (can I say that??) creating lots of laughs from the doormen when I asked them to mind it for me, it got kissed and everything. Very classy

Denise Silvera - Spa-kle Ladies & After Dark - Birmingham
"The overall service was excellent. All emails were responded to quickly and always resolved any queries that I had.
The hotel was great. We had booked a silver banded hotel. On arrival the Hotel looked great the receptionist was friendly and we were able to book in early which was an added bonus.
The spa was great. The staff made us all feel really good.
The Comedy Club is a great venue placed in a really lively area. The atmosphere was great. Even though they had another hen group booked in they still paid us loads of attention and helped make a great night. The food was delicious
I just wanted to say thanks for all your help for organising our weekend in Birmingham. We all had a fabulous time. I’m sitting at my desk still feeling rough but smiling as we all had such a great time! The overall weekend was wicked. Everything went so smoothly from the moment we arrived, to the moment we left."

Mandy Forrest - Burlesque Dance Class & After Dark - Liverpool
"Overall service provided by party organiser who looked after me during my booking was also excellent. Sadly Chloe left UK Girl thing just prior to our event, but handed our dealings over to Emily, who was on top of everything and made sure that everything was in place.
Overall service provided by party planner when enquiring and booking was excellent. Everyone we spoke to was so friendly and more than helpful.
Oh what a fabulous time we had, absolutely brilliant. I would highly recommend this weekend to any Hens out there! Liverpool is a beautiful place and all of the people we met were so friendly. We laughed from the time we went till well after we got home! Honestly we all wished that we could have stayed longer and seen some more of the sights as it really was such a welcoming place. I would definately recommend UK Girthing to friends and family, and we will also be looking to book again next year for a girlie weekend. Thank you to all of the team for making our event so special"

Amy Wallace - Girls Night In & Adonis Cabaret - Leeds
"All help received was done in a quick and friendly manner. Took the stress away of organizing the weekend and let me look forward to enjoying it. Thank you so much for organising it all for me
All enquiries were dealt with in a friendly manner. Thank you so much for organising it all for me.
Myself and all my guests were so impressed with the hotel! It looked great and all our rooms were brilliant. Staff were friendly and as we arrived at the hotel everything was ready for us. Drink on arrival included a pint of beer or wine which pleased all of the girls! As we stayed 2 nights we had a free sleepover with a Wii and pizzas. We all really enjoyed this and was a fab start to the weekend! The only little thing was that we had to wait for around an hour for the pizzas but this wasn’t a major problem. We had plenty of time to enjoy the quiz that my bridesmaid and mother of the groom did for me. We then spent the night doing lots of dancing to the wii and playing limo which was great fun. Breakfast in the morning was very nice too.
For the Saturday evening we went to Adonis. We all dressed up as builders and even though we had to take our vests off in the club in case paramedics were called (not sure how may wear bright pink!) it certainly didn’t dampen the mood. I was quite nervous as I wasn’t sure how much audience participation there would be. I didn’t need to be as we had so much fun. The drag queen and the strippers were all great fun and we all had a fab time. Was really well planned out in the club and they certainly made sure we all enjoyed ourselves
I wouldn’t hesitate to book again with yourselves as everything went so smoothly. We were just left to have plenty of fun which was great. I’ll be recommending you to all my friends and family in the future as you really made everything so easy in organising the weekend. Plus we all had a fab time!"

Emma Nicholls - Pamper Me, Cocktail Making & After Dark - Liverpool
"I first found the company UK Girl thing online, I emailed initially and had a quick response from a Party Planner who informed me the options I had enquired about were available. As I was booking around Christmas time money was a little tight to pay the deposit, Uk girl thing then came to the rescue and had a book now and pay at the end of January offer! This was brilliant so everything had been booked before Christmas and was one less thing to stress about! After this I was then passed on to a Party Organiser who helped with everything else.
The hotel was definitely a gold hotel and was a 4* hotel. The rooms were lovely, the staff were really helpful and I would recommend the hotel! Also in our envelopes given to us on arrival all the group received a two for one drinks voucher courtesy of UK girl thing! The hotel had also put balloons in my hotel room, ready for my arrival. My one bridesmaid was there before me and had made goody bags for all the hens, the hotel were really helpful and went round with her to put them in the rooms ready for when the rest of the girls arrived.
On the Saturday morning we had a spa booked, we went to a Hotel and used the spa facilities there and this was lovely. On arrival the hotel staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The facilities were great, everyone in the party had a great time!
In the early afternoon we went cocktail making, this started at 2pm, on arrival we were greeted by great staff and started the session with a shot and a cocktail! We were then told to look at the menu and decide what cocktail we would like to make, in small groups we went behind the bar and were guided step by step telling us what to do! After everyone had made their first cocktail we were all told to choose a second one to make! After the second cocktail had been made a ‘vodka train’ had been set up on a table. This was amazing! We then ended the session with large platters of food being brought out to share between the group.
For the evening we had a meal booked, again on arrival staff were great and the food was lovely. Another great location! We then had VIP entry to a club, this club was amazing at 11pm they do a ‘petal dance’. FANTASTIC!
The whole weekend was fantastic, prior to arriving I had worries in case things didn’t go to plan, however everything was PERFECT! The whole weekend was brilliant and so well organized. Having everything planned kept the whole group together and there wasn’t one complaint from any of the girls the whole time. It really was a perfect hen weekend and there is nothing I would have changed! Thank You.I have already recommended UK Girl thing to so many friends and family!"
Hints & Tips
The biggest advice I would give is just relax and enjoy having a weekend all about you! I stressed too much in case we arrived and nothing had been done, this was due to a previous company letting me down! However UK Girl thing are company you can trust so relax and enjoy! As most of us were at work the Friday we decided to dress up to keep everyone in the hen spirit! I had left my bridesmaids in charge of the theme, they had done a fantastic job and we were all dressed up as Hulk Hogan or as the girls called it Emma’s Hogans! This was so good as it was unusual and we had so much positive attention from it! We then played a few games when we were out, the game that went down the best was probably the peg game! This game is played by everyone having a peg, the hen is in charge to start with and has to move the peg somewhere on an item of clothing or her bag or hair etc, the last person to move the peg has to have a large drink of their drink. They are then in charge of moving the peg! Etc. This is a game that can last the whole evening. However once the drink gets flowing the pegs do end up in random places, we had bar staff wearing and they were left in places throughout different bars!

"The Hotel was fantastic – even better than we thought
Regional Games was a brilliant activity – very good laugh
Cocktail making was great – host was brilliant
The weekend was better than I could of imagined. Everything went perfect and to plan. Not stressful at all as everything was done for us by your great team. Thank you very much"

"The Hotel was beautiful and spacious, and the location was great. Breakfast was good and filled us up ready for the day ahead.
Cocktail Masterclass was amazing and would do it again. The Restaurant was lovely and the service was very good. The Comedy club was amazing, we had a really good giggle. Sunday's Spa Day was brilliant, perfect way to finish the weekend.
The whole weekend was amazing and was one I will cherish forever. Everyone was so friendly in Liverpool. My best friend is looking to book Cocktail Making as we enjoyed it that much!. The best weekend I have had in a long time, Thank You!"

Sarah Hardcastle - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
"Everyone I spoke to at UK Girl Thing was really friendly, bubbly, helpful, knowledgeable and quick at replying to emails. It was a pleasure to book the hen party through this company. Great party planners, great customer service!
I think I speak for all the hens when I say the cocktail masterclass was the highlight. We had such a laugh from start to end. The cocktail master did a great job and we loved making our own cocktails. The value for money was brilliant - we were kept very well hydrated (and tipsy) with lots of cocktails and shots, and we couldn't believe how much party food we were served afterwards (but we still managed to eat it all and it was very tasty!).
The meal was delicious, and again, brilliant value and excellent service. We liked the fact that we were in our own little area and had balloons and confetti waiting for us on the tables. Entry into club was quick and easy, and it was great to jump the queue! We had a good dance in the club and enjoyed the variety of music in the different rooms.
Everyone had a fantastic time and the bride-to-be loved every minute. Payment before the event was simple and hassle free, the venues were excellent and the UK Girl Thing website was informative. Organising a hen do can be stressful, but everything on the night was stress-free."
Sarah Hardcastle May 2013
Gosia Buszujew - Showgirls, After Dark & Pamper Me - Edinburgh
"The girls were very helpful, very patient, answered all the questions and emails very quickly, they were also happy to answer questions of whomever contacted them and didn’t insist on talking with one nominated person, which speeded things up for us.
We Hotel we were staying in was right in the middle of the town, so it was close to everywhere we wanted to be. It had everything we needed and we were very pleased with it.
More than excellent!! It was fun, a good laugh, bringing everyone together. We are thinking about booking another dance class with them we enjoyed it so much. Our trainer was brilliant! It felt like she was part of the group and not at all like someone who only came to teach us a dance.
We had a lovely meal in the restaurant, it was delicious, the staff were very nice and tolerant. After that we got changed and hit the town. We didn’t make it all the way to City club, but we still enjoyed ourselves in other places and there was lots to choose from.
On Sunday we went to the SPA and as it turned out, our group was the only people who were in it at the time. It was very nice finish to our weekend, where we could relax after crazy night we had. Definitely worth having as it didn’t add much to the price, but definitely added a lot to our trip. Also we were very glad that our hotel, day and afternoon activities were all located in the same area (mostly on the same street even) which saved all the unnecessary traveling between places."

Karen Procek - Cocktail Making - VIP After Dark - Newcastle
We arrived at our hotel (Very central to Newcastle and an amazing place) on the Friday. After we checked into our really spacious rooms (I had been given an upgrade) we went out for some cocktails straight away. That evening we found a really nice Italian directly across the road from the back entrance of the hotel.
Saturday was cocktail making. Harvey was fantastic and could see I was a nervous bride. We sampled so many different types of cocktail. My sister (MOH) got very competitive and even made Harvey take a "chilli shot" when he couldn't pronounce a polish vodka name when she could. Nibbles were fab after all our hard work. We were all a bit sozzled to say the least. Went back to the hotel where some of us had a power nap before the big night ahead
Neon was our theme for the evening. everyone had chosen a colour of neon to wear (except pink) with black whereas I was in white and pink to stand out. Had a lovely 3 course meal before hitting the dance floor
We all had an amazing time in Newcastle and didn't want it to end. One very happy hen

Kirsty Dallaire - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Newcastle
I would just like to give a big thank you for making our weekend away so simple to organize
The Hotel was Brilliant, all of our 4 rooms were booked together which was useful as groups of girls are forever in and out speaking to each other. Easy check in, very busy but still managed to deal with everyone very quickly. Amazing Hangover breakfast served up until half 10 which is brilliant when you need to have a lie in.
Cocktail Making was a blast. Mark our cocktail master was so funny and really made our experience, brilliant value for money, everyone got a chance to get involved which was good. Funny games that got everyone laughing!
Best Weekend of my life – I think this was a general feeling from all 12 of the group. Newcastle is such a friendly welcoming place and we all just loved it. So much choice as to where to go in the evening and we did try a good number of pubs/clubs. Cocktail making was fantastic and would love to go and do it again sometime. We are all trying to get another friend to arrange their wedding now just so we have an excuse to go back for another weekend away :) UK Girl Thing took away all of the usual stress of organizing a weekend away with a large group (12), they organized all activities, meals, nightclubs which is useful when you are new to somewhere and haven’t been out before. Everything was so well planned out and I received a personal itinerary for the group, which was kept in my bag all weekend and had step by step plan of what we’re doing.

Emma Louise Humphreys - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
Brilliant, the amount of times I had to contact my Party Organiser because people were dropping out or we had to change plans nothing was a problem for her and she was a great help.
Although we couldn’t check-in until 2pm, we turned up to the hotel a few hours early to drop our bags and our rooms were ready, the staff there were friendly and overall the hotel was pretty good.
Cocktail making, was amazing all the girls wanted to make sure our feedback was passed onto the man who did ours he was really friendly and made it fun, we didn’t expect to have so much alcohol and we left a little drunk, the food platter afterwards was amazing and again we didn’t expect so much food.
The whole day went pretty amazing, I would definetly use you again, and what we paid for what we had included was amazing, the bride really enjoyed herself. Big thanks to our Party Organiser for organising this stress free. I would definitely recommend, im waiting for more friends to get engaged now so I can use you again haha!

Gemma Hicks - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Cardiff
"I would like to thank you for helping me organise my sisters perfect hen night. Everything went like clockwork and my experience with UK Girl Thing made the Hen Weekend an easy and perfect one. I was contacted on several occasions to check everything was Ok and that we were happy with everything. Our Party Organiser could not have been nicer and done anything better.
The hotel was lovely, simple but had everything you could need. The staff again, were very helpful, calling us taxi’s and getting us extra pillows/blankets when we asked.
This was definitely the high light of our weekend. The staff were very friendly and our bar man was amazing! Very good value for money and an excellent way to start the weekend. We also had a few nibbles which again were perfect to soak up the cocktails!
There were plenty of places to go and all that we went to were brill, if not very very busy!! We had food booked which was good, the service was quick and the food was nice and spicy!!!
We had a fantastic weekend and would definitely return to Cardiff!! We certainly did enjoy every bit of our time in Cardiff !! The whole process was easy and the payment part (being able to individually pay) was excellent. There were plenty of choices and even though you were relying on others to do the hard work you still felt in control at every point – best of both worlds! Once again many thanks for your help."

Deborah Smith - Single Ladies, Cocktail Making & After Dark - Birmingham
"The Beyonce dance class with Emma was such fun. She was a superb teacher and made it all such fun, would recommend Emma to anybody.
The cocktail making was good fun and excellent value for money.
”Barry” the life size blow up doll was the star of the weekend he went everywhere with the bride and made the event!! Photo’s of Barry at the Dancing, cocktail session and nightclub are available to view!! We could have made a fortune if we had charged for photo opportunities with Barry as we were constantly approached for pictures with “Barry”"

Sarah-Jane Pickthorne - Cocktail Making & Spa-Kle Pamper - Birmingham
"I just wanted to say a huge thank-you for helping me organise Louise's Hen Weekend, Nothing was too much trouble.
We all loved the Cocktail Making with the lovely (gorgeous) Joe. The cocktail challenges were so much fun with plenty of shots for both the winners and losers - no-one left sober! We merrily continued along Broad Street until our night was cut short by the bride-to-be slipping and spraining her ankle - luckily all the guests are either doctors or nurses and so Louise was in good hands.
The venue was excellent for our spa-kle ladies experience and they made us all feel pampered and relaxed for our entire stay.
The bride-to-be told me it was the best ever hen night she'd been on and felt thoroughly spoilt all day and evening. Thank-you so much again for all your help"
Sarah-Jane Pickthorne April 2013

"Informative and quick to respond to e-mails. Our party planner, Jo answered all of my questions quickly and couldn’t have been more helpful.
Hotel was as expected but very clean and, considering it was a busy hotel, it wasn’t noisy. The staff on reception were very helpful – booking taxis / giving directions etc
Couldn’t fault the cocktail making experience – the guys who were teaching were lots of fun, got everyone involved and really knew their stuff!! The cocktails were great as was the food served afterwards…More than enough to eat and drink
We had a fantastic weekend- thoroughly enjoyed by all. We’ve used UKGirlThing twice now and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again – it takes all of the hassle out of sorting daytime events and somewhere to eat on a night!"

We never imagined the Burlesque dancing to be so much fun. The time went so quick and the instructor (Fran) was brilliant.
We had an amazing meal and it was amazing food. Service 10/10
Well what can I say about the Hen Weekend! It has been amazing and def not one to forget. Thanks again for everything you guys have been brilliant"

Becky Brown - Thriller & After Dark - Brighton
"The hotel location was really good. Everyone enjoyed thriller dancing, especially the bride. The food was really good – better than what I thought it was going to be as it was part of a package deal. Everyone liked the club as it was somewhere really different to go
It took the hassle out of trying to organize everything separately"

Ruth Claes - Spa-rty & After Dark - York
"Provided prompt responses and was helpful when answering questions
I think the hotel was of good quality of accommodation for the Silver package.
The treatments that the girls provided were excellent – cannot fault the skills of the girls. The chocolate fountain and goodies were excellent!!
Evening went well. Staff were great and everything ran like clockwork. Table was ready for us and food served promptly and no hiccups. Club night was also good. Staff were expecting us and were very accommodating when we asked to move tables. Even gave us another bottle of fizz. One of my friends stumbled and twisted their ankle and wanted to leave early. As she left the door manager asked where she was staying and gave her a lift home
Over all the weekend was good and it was great to have something planned."

Nichola Thomas - After Dark - Nottingham
"The initial enquiry was dealt with by Brian, he was really informative without being pushy as some of the other companies I enquired with were. We changed the ideas around a little to get the best price for the package we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and each time I got a revised plan.
The party organizer was Shona who has been excellent throughout the planning process. She ensured that we got certain special offers to help with cost and has been on hand to answer every single query immediately. Nothing has been too much trouble even when we had a few people drop out at the last minute.
The hotel was brilliant. From arrival the staff were really helpful and the rooms were good quality, as were the facilities.
The food and service was excellent and they were very attentive."
"I am really grateful to Anna and Jo who were both extremely helpful from the outset. Anna worked with all the information I provided in order to provide us with a bespoke package that we all loved. Jo has been great and was even involved in helping to book my husband to be’s stag do after he was impressed with the service I was receiving.
The Hotel in Nottingham was fantastic, the breakfast is one of the best I have had in a long time.
The Sparty was fab, we all loved being pampered, the beauty therapists seemed to work very hard
The murder mystery was excellent, we all had a great time. The actors were very good and got everyone totally involved in the scenes. The food was lovely with large portions that meant most of us were unable to finish our meals. We would definitely recommend a murder mystery to others. It is the first time a lot of us have done a murder mystery and we loved it, would definitely do another murder mystery evening.
Everything was fab. All of us had a great time and it definitely got us all in the party spirit ready for the wedding. "

Cocktail Making was so much fun. The bride didn’t stop smiling. Sam was great and made sure we all had a great time. Was a great way to kick off the day, was a great ice breaker and got us all in the party mood.
Restaurant were really friendly and the meal was great and the club was great! Quite a few other hens and stags out and the vibe was just really fun and up for a laugh. We didn’t stop dancing all night! staff at . The Oceana club was perfect. Great music, great crowd.
It was great! The bride and all the hens had a fab night. Thanks so much for all your help, it was perfect. So glad we booked through UKGirlThing.

Helped with honest opinions of where to go what it was like etc.
Hotel exceeded expectations of a gold quality we booked. Clean, Friendly, helpful and very spacious.
Cocktail making was spot on, kept us entertained from the moment we walked in until the minute we walked out. Everyone commented on the vodka train the bartenders did at the end of the evening. The party platters after the event were a welcome need after the drinking and they were amazing.
After Dark meal was lovely
Overall we had the most amazing weekend. FABUOUS WEEKEND – I WANT TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!!!"

Our Spa-rty was fantastic all the girls carrying out the treatments were very professional and friendly, putting us all at ease and providing a wonderful afternoon of pampering.
We all had a lovely weekend especially the Spa-rty treatment- the beauticians were excellent and having a private room meant that we could all relax.

Very friendly and helpful; arranged a time to call me and everything was quickly and easily arranged. All queries responded to quickly and with plenty of information. Again, Shona very quick to respond to queries and very helpful and forthcoming with information. Did everything to ensure that all my needs were met and was very friendly and approachable throughout.
Hotel was in a good location in the centre of Liverpool (near the river), lovely rooms, good facilities and helpful staff.
The cocktail making was fantastic – the highlight of our weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount and variety of drinks we got to make (and drink!!) The guys running the class were great, very enthusiastic and got everyone involved. There were plenty of games and involvement and the time flew by. I would definitely recommend this.
The meal was great, very generous portions and the restaurant was in a lovely location in the Albert Docks area. The bar was nice, we had a great night !!
Great, everyone had a great time, which was fantastic considering we had a range of ages and a mix of family and friends within the group. Many had never met before the party so it was a very sociable and enjoyable weekend, with a good mix of activities. The information that my party planners provided before the weekend meant that everything ran smoothly and I could shepherd everyone around successfully!! The itinerary was my lifeline!!"

Laura was great & really helpful and didn’t seem to mind me keep asking questions!
The Thistle hotel was perfect the hotel is a silver and well deserved it – clean rooms, good sizes and a very professional staff. The hotel is just the right distance from the town but close enough to get cheap taxis, the rooms were great & the breakfast was AMAZING!!
The cocktail making was such a laugh and our bar lady was such fun.. Our favourite bit was the cocktail making! Everyone loved it and couldn’t believe how many cocktails we got. We are planning to go again for the cocktail making in the summer just for the fun of it.
All in all it was a great afternoon and night and everyone loved the whole thing & couldn’t believe how cheap it was for everything we had - Thanks

"I found the service excellent. Claudia was very clear and concise with everything. When Shona took over the booking, nothing was ever a problem and she was very prompt with replies and made me feel like everything was running smoothly (which it was!). I would highly recommend asking for Shona if anyone I know uses UK Girlthing in the future :)
None of us had ever been to a Murder Mystery evening so we didn’t really know what to expect - it was brilliant! The actors were brilliant from start to finish, they were funny and they made us all feel really comfortable. Also, the food was lovely! Would highly recommend this too :)
It was so much fun. The organization was brilliant and everything ran so smoothly. I won’t go into too much detail as I was a bit messy!! The hotel staff were also lovely!"
Kym Gailer February 2013
Catherine Bidewell - Cocktail Making & Adonis Cabaret - Brighton
"Jo was extremely helpful and flexible with our booking. Nothing was too much trouble. We had some late payments due to it being Christmas but Jo didn’t make a fuss. Also being able to pay online individually is a brilliant idea as it doesn’t cause any problems and doesn’t leave anyone out of pocket. Jo you were brilliant thank you so much. All info provided was precise and explained clearly
The hotel in Brighton was at an ideal location. Near to that station and within walking distance to all the pubs/clubs. The hotel was clean and tidy and had all facilities we needed.
We opted to do the cocktail making lesson. When we arrived there was a cocktail lined up for each of us and lots of alcohol was consumed during the lesson. It was great fun and a brilliant way to get everyone to know each other. Great value for money.
The Adonis show was good. It was a giggle and the performers were brilliant.
The weekend was brilliant. All 14 people commented that it was the best hen party they had been on. I would definitely book through UK girl thing again. We had the best weekend!"
Catherine Bidewell February 2013

Everything was great & thanks for your organisation"

The hotel provided excellent service and organised transport, for my friend who broke her leg on Friday, to hospital.
The cocktail making session was really good
We are on our way back from Manchester and have all had one of the best weekends we have ever had. The hen and the rest of the party had a brilliant weekend. Thank you very much for organising it. I will send you some pictures."

"Responded quickly to any questions and answered them fully. Sorted a change to booking very easily prior to final payments.
Hotel was much better than expected, staff were very friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble, Breakfast was excellent.
So much fun, Emma dance instructor was encouraging and enthusiastic making us feel more relaxed. Surprised that we were photographed and videoed but made for an excellent memory of the session we wouldn’t have had.
Staff at our After Dark venue were fantastic. Great service and a great venue – so much so we didn’t move on to any clubs after we had eaten.
Fantastic weekend that went without any hitches"
Amanda Nally - February 2013
Emma Floyd - Spa-rty & After Dark - Bristol
"Straight from enquiring about a possible hen you guys replied in rapid time which was a brilliant first impresstion as other companies took days to get back to me even one company a week. Then the first lady I spoke to was friendly and answered all my questions and helped me put the best package together for our weekend and then passed me on to Shona.
Shona was brilliant to, nothing was too much and she was always avaiable to speak to. She was fast and efficient with anything I'ed ask her and replying to my emails. Shona waas excellent, couldn't of asked for anyone better. Amazing!
The hotel was lovely, we came before check in so the very friendly reception staff stored our bags for us, booked our taxi's for us and were very helpful. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast had so much choice. I would highly recommend staying there and would even stay there if I was to visit Bristol again. They've really got the balance right with having hen/stag parties and family visits etc... really impressed.
Our spa day in the Hotel was brilliant and was really value for money. I was able to get in the room early to decorate it and meet the beauticans- who were lovely and so friendly. They were organised, brilliant at all the treatments( from foot rubs to massages) and just would go out of there way to make our day special- everyone loved it and to please 18 ladies is pretty good ; )
Our evening meal was at the mexican restaurant and the food was gorgeous, the staff were friendly and so organised. We had 2 for 1 cocktail pitchers and got to watch the bar staff do all there tricks etc when making the cocktails. Was a lovely evening and would eat there again.
Weekend was amazing. I would 100% recommend UKGirl Thing. From start to finish you've been absolutely amazing! I know that the stag have used you guys from my recommendations. Brilliant! Would like to say a big thankyou to Shona, you have been brilliant and your great at your job!"
Emma Floyd February 2013
Rebecca Scott - Go Karting, Comedy Show & After Dark - Edinburgh
"The overall service was great and I found everyone I dealt with so friendly and easy to talk to. I felt that I couldn’t have done it without Joanne. She helped me every step of the way and put up with my million and one questions.
The hotel was spotless and the staff were friendly and did everything they could to make it fun. My friends trousers split and the hotel staff give her a sewing kit so she could fix them. That’s what I call saving the day
We did go karting and it was so much fun. It’s something that I’ve never done before and it was great. We all loved it and I even beat my friends which was great!
The comedy night was great and I must say the venue was great and the acts really made the night, I’ve not laughed so hard in a long time.
On the Saturday the meal really hit the spot. The staff were on hand to help with anything we needed and also loved our outfits as super heroes. We went onto to the nightclub later and were taking to our booth by the manager and it was lovely being able to sit down and chat. The club had other rooms and we had a great time dancing in all the different rooms.
I cannot thank Joanne enough for putting up with all my questions , she was a star throughout the process. I thought it was going to be stressful as I’m the bride organizing my own hen party but I can honestly say it wasn’t . I told UKGirlThing what I had in mind and they came up with all different options and all I did was choose one, it was that easy. If I could sum up my weekend it would be priceless. I’m already recommending to anyone who will listen."
Rebecca Scott February 2013
Jo Thorne - Cocktail Making & After Dark - York
"Both Joanne and Aly were very helpful and friendly and quick to provide assistance and confirm that my booking had been made. I was very impressed by the customer service during the booking process. Aly was very friendly and chatty on the phone which was really nice and made me feel that it wouldn’t be a problem if I had any questions in the future. She was happy to explain more about the day and was honest about what I should expect. Joanne was very efficient in providing me with booking forms and confirmations and was always quick to reply to emails.
Really fun and we really didn’t expect to get so much alcohol! If anything there was probably a bit too much food considering we had dinner reservations at 8pm and our cocktail class food wasn’t scheduled until 5.45pm. It meant we had eaten some lunch before, so a lot of the food laid on went to waste. We were pleased to see a couple of platters of food come out, but when they said, ‘There are 4 more, you may want to make room…’ we were a bit shocked!
After Dark was great. Friendly waiters and a fun atmosphere, but again, if anything, too much food – it just kept coming! We had to cancel desert!
Everyone in the group agreed that the package was very good value for money and I would recommend York as a location. Very good service, a very fun experience, easy organization and overall, great value for money."
Jo Thorne February 2013
Lisa Walker - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
"Extremely helpful and knowledgeable
Happy with room and facilities for a bronze hotel. Can you also pass on our thanks to the hotel staff who were great and supplied us with extra pillows and duvets.
Henry who was our host for the cocktail activity was brilliant he made the whole thing very enjoyable and fun. We all had a fantastic time so if you could pass on our thanks that would be appreciated. The food was also very welcome as we had not eaten since breakfast.
We went to the restaurant and again the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive and the food was delicious. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff there who also boxed up Laurens food to take away as she felt a little poorly.
We had a fantastic time. We did not make it to the night club due to excess alcohol but that is the whole point of a hen do.Definitely would recommend it was so easy to book and to get everyone to pay there part it took the stress away."
Lisa Walker February 2013

Meal was perfect when we got to the club there was a private function and were told public could not go until after 11 however the manager allowed our hen party and a couple of others in. the club was fab.
Amazing weekend, value for money went very smoothly. Will be recommending to others especially my chief bridesmaid as I'm getting married next may!!"

The weekend was fantastic and great value for money. Everyone who went really enjoyed the hotel especially ."

The cocktail making was excellent. Staff were fantastic
Karaoke booth was great fun. Staff were fantastic
Dream Boys was a great laugh too, thoroughly enjoyed it all. Staff were fantastic

Laura Hayes - Cocktail Making & After Dark - York
"The way in which the planning was organised was first class. The manners and organizational skills of the UKGIRLTHING staff are phenomenal. The queries I had were dealt with efficiently and I could not have asked for better customer service – it is second to none. The information I requested was provided quickly and I had no stress or issues at all when looking at the different options offered by the company.
Our party organizer (Chloe) was outstanding. She is very gifted at her job and made the whole process seamless. She was organised, efficient and answered all of my questions and issues without hesitation. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for everything - you are AMAZING
The hotel staff were welcoming and fulfilled everything we expected and more, we were given a very warm welcome and the standards of facilities and cleanliness in the hotel were also second to none. All members of the group had beautiful rooms and were truly pleased with the standard of the rooms and facilities we were given a part of our package. Despite the flooding the transfer was seamless and there were no issues with the booking transfer, I was kept up to date and the hotel was fantastic with us throughout our stay.
Our day activity was cocktail making in York – it was AMAZING. Many members of the group have completed a similar activity before and ALL remarked at how much better this session was to others in difference cities that they had booked themselves. The value for money was phenomenal. Lunch was served on arrival and the food quality was brilliant. The amount of drinks included in the package price was beyond belief! The activity leader (JOSH) was brilliant and each and every one of use thoroughly enjoyed the session. There were a whole range of ages on our hen night and everyone remarked at how welcome, valued and included they felt. Everyone was given the chance to participate and we all REALLY enjoyed the activity.
The evening activity was also outstanding. Our meal and drinks in York were great and once again we could not have asked for anything more. Upon arrival we were given a VIP area and made to feel special at once. The food was excellent and out waiter (JAMES) was outstanding. The drinks and nachos were beautiful on arrival and all of the staff were very attentive. The way in which we were treated made us feel very very welcome and special. I cannot find fault with any part of the evening meal, drinks, service or location and believe me I find fault with most things!
I have really enjoyed our experience with your company and would like to pass on my thanks to all involved in the process. My sister had a hen night that she adored and to me that means the works – so thank YOU for helping me to achieve that! UKGIRLTHING is without doubt one of the best companies I have ever used and would not hesitate to recommend them – in fact I already have!"

Tracy Benet - Party Bus - Leeds
"Prompt responses to enquiries and really friendly staff with named party planner made it more personal. Really good personal service.
We all had a really good time and a good laugh. Only criticism was that the party Bus was over booked and two was needed which took time to organize and my hen party group was separated therefore when on the bus, but all enjoyed it none the same.
Leeds is a fantastic place to enjoy any celebration and Ukgirthing do provide a good variety of packages to choose from if you want your event organised. It really does take the pressure off and the easy payment scheme is a good idea."

"Excellent. My queries were always answered ASAP and the service was really excellent. The girl I spoke with was lovely and made everything easier for me. Really cannot praise the service enough. Shona was gave excellent service and no query was too difficult and she seemed like she really wanted to make sure we had a lovely time.
Pleasently surprised. Hotel was gorgeous and the room where we had our beauty treatments was lovely.
Spa-rty was brilliant. We thought the cost compared with what we got and the service was outstanding.
Again brilliant. Meal was already paid for which was fab so it was just drinks. The restaurant were expecting us and had a lovely table ready, no problems with the booking at all.
Fabulous. Most important of all, the hen had a lovely time.I would definitely use the company for any future hen weekends I may plan. Hopefully when I get married, I would make sure my hen uses this company too. UK girl thing made it so easy for everyone to pay when they wanted, catered to individual needs and so everything was taken care of."

We had a meal which was lovely! The restaurant was extremely quiet but we didn’t have to worry how loud we were! Bar was fab very cheesy but a good bar to start the night in. We got a bottle of bubbles on arrival which was nice.

Shona has been brilliant! She has kept in contact regularly to ensure everything was sorted, when I had special requirements she arranged it straight away! A credit to the company!
The hotel staff were lovely, all very willing to help and friendly! Hotel was very clean and tidy.
Everyone had a brilliant time at Cocktail school. The bartenders we had were fantastic! The food we were provided was lovely and everyone commented on what a fantastic job the venue had done.
We all had an amazing time on the hen weekend! Newcastle was a fabulous choice of venue for a night out, all the clubs and bars we attended provided either free drinks or free entry for the bride herself which she really appreciated.

A lovely hotel. Very helpful staff and good quality food
We had an excellent time – I would recommend it to anybody – as we had a group of all ages and all abilities and it was only the dancer who struggled with the lack of timing but we had so much fun. As a group we laughed and work so hard we hurt all over.
We had a fantastic weekend and had a really enjoyable experience"

Chloe was also extremely helpful and any queries I had were answered in a timely manner. Our itinerary was also thorough and everything I needed to plan the weekend and refer to trying to organise 15 girls.
We booked a Gold hotel and I think it was that. The facilities were great in the rooms and the breakfast was beautiful. The service in the hotel was also very friendly and efficient.
Our hen weekend was fab overall and I would like to thank UK Girl Thing for organizing it. Many Thanks."

"Chloe & Aly made it really easy to plan a memorable night to suit many different tastes and personalities. There was really something for everyone of all ages and we had a great time without breaking the bank thanks to the amazing value UK Girl Thing secured for us.
Natasha the dance instructor was a star. Really good personality friendly and fun who somehow managed to coordinate a bunch of uncoordinated, slightly tipsy ladies! She really deserves a special mention as she really was lovely! Loved the certificates, dare cards and the other gifts in the goody bag.
Food was amazing at the after dark evening. Excellent value!
100% YES to recommend"
Karla Hanna November 2012
Lisa Robertson - Thriller Dancing & After Dark - Edinburgh
"All the staff were very helpful and made it very easy to book. I really liked the fact that you did not need definite numbers at the initial booking. Very good as there were some changes to number etc and nothing was a hassle to them they made organizing the hen do a cinch. Thank you all very much for making it happen
The hotel was really good right in the middle of town so everything was just a walk away. Being able to get 3 in a room made it more of a laugh and the hotel staff were really helpful and didn’t mind us asking for extra bits and bobs for the room.
This was the best bit of the weekend we had a ball, we laughed our socks off and even though we had no rhythm or timing it just made it even better. What a laugh!!!
We had lots of fun singing and the atmosphere was great. The food was also really good and everyone enjoyed their meal.
It was one of the best weekends we have had and at a reasonable price out of 22 ladies all 22 said they had a fab time and would do it all again next week!! Many thanks for all the laughs and giggles."

I would highly recommend the cocktails making, the spa day and the hotel.. was honestly great. We had an AMAZING time in Liverpool, everything was brilliant. From the minute we arrived everyone made us welcome and the Bride to be and all the other hens really enjoyed it!! Although it did take us 2 days to get over it!!

Tracey Sparke - Single Ladies & After Dark - Leeds
"Having booked the weekend very last minute! I found the service and help of the whole team invaluable. I had to go away on holiday and found that through the chaos that ensued, the team supported my co bridesmaid through it all and the weekend was finally booked. There was nothing too big or small to ask and the response time was very efficient. Could not thank you enough!
The hotel was fantastic and was even more luxurious than what the girls were expecting. i have stayed at this hotel before and was more than pleased when i found out where we were staying. Staff were fabulous and couldn’t do enough to help.
The Single Ladies dance class was superb and really got us in the mood for the night ahead!! we managed to learn the whole dance and even looked ‘okay’ when we played the video back lol. We kept this as a surprise for the bride and she was more than happy for what was presented before her . The venue was slightly interesting as was very cold and out of the way however when the music started and in the swing of things we could not have been more impressed!
Awesome!!!! Spanish was the perfect choice and food was fab and kept on coming! As a venue the club could not have been more perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive and all girls were very impressed. Would recommend the after dark package to everyone!
Weekend was absolutely amazing and will never be forgotten I'm sure. Looking forward to a good catch up and reminisce at the wedding in 3 weeks time!!!! Aly, Chloe and the whole gang have been wonderful!!"

OH MY GOD, did we laugh!!!!! The Adonis show was really entertaining, The drag queen compere was fantastic, to be honest we could have watched her all night, Lady James should have a show of her own. It was brilliant to see our bride to be up on stage strutting her stuff!! we had a fab time and danced the night away.
JUST FAB!! We all had a great time, our bride to be didn't stop smiling and says she had a hen night she will never forget, and that’s what really matters! Thanks ukgirlthing for helping me give her the night she deserved!!"

Caran Tait - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Liverpool
"Great help, very efficient. Can’t fault anything
We opted for the gold hotel option; location was great, rooms lovely & clean, staff friendly and lots of choice at breakfast. Also used the hotel bar one night making use of 2-4-1 drinks vouchers, bar staff lovely & friendly too.
Cocktail Master Class - we had such a good time, drank plenty, ate plenty and definitely laughed plenty. We had Martin, lovely young guy-who showed us the ropes behind the bar with a few fun games and learning to make drinks you maybe wouldn’t normally opt for & being surprised at how tasty they were. Enjoyed a great yummy platter between us all with yet another cocktail, surprised we managed to walk out the pub.
Excellent Lovely meal - each got to pick 3 courses of whatever we wanted from their full menu.
We honestly thought it was great value for money, from the hotel to the activities. We couldn’t believe how good the deal was. Thank you so much for all your help during booking etc. we had a blast, it was a great weekend from start to finish . YES!!! (would recommend UKGT) Without a doubt!!! I have already passed on your details to a few girls & I am currently trying to think of the next excuse for a girls weekend away now we are all married so will be back in touch. Thanks again"

Hotel was in an excellent location and good value for money
Burlesque was good fun and very organised
Mexican meal was brilliant and the club was good as well. Guest list entry into the club and free champagne which was good, would have been good to have a booth though.
We had a brilliant weekend, we were dreading the burlesque dancing but it was really good fun in the end. It didn’t matter that we couldn’t remember the steps it was still good fun. Mexican meal was brilliant and the club was good as well. Very good and organized trip. Yes will difinately use them again, the prices are clear you know what all is included and what to expect."

Great check in and check out times. Friendly staff and all our rooms were together, which was perfect!
A well organised night. Our lead cocktail maker, Ian, was really friendly and made the night really enjoyable. Lots of drinks included in the price and everyone was involved at all times.

Hotel was excellent lovely and clean and great location, staff lovely and great fun, dead good quality.
This was excellent, great fun we loved this and it made the hen do, we got so many cocktails and the staff were fab. I would recommend that to anyone we had a pregnant lady on board and she said how much she enjoyed it and she didn’t think she would. Evening meal was excellent, nice food, nice staff great location.
We had such a lovely weekend, you organised things down to a T for us all and we didn’t have to stress or worry, it was so easy we just had to turn up, the hotel was luch, the little extras we got there was amazing and the staff treated us so well. The food was great at the hotel and great at the tai place. We were treated like princesses all the way through."

The hotel was fabulous and we all voiced that we would love to stay here again sometime in the future!
The weekend went very well. We managed an early start by train to Bournemouth from Clapham Junction. The hotel was very good and in great location The staff very welcoming and helpful. Everyone of us loved the rooms we were allocated and all had sea views which really made a difference.
We were dressed up and made the most of our time in Bournemouth and our friend's hen party weekend! Would certainly use UK GirlThing again and have recommended other friends and family."

Hazel Coathup - After Dark - Liverpool
"Shona was also very friendly easy to talk to and very accommodating.Very friendly and efficient.
I would certainly recommend the Hotel. It was what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. All the staff there were very friendly and made us very welcome. We left our bags there the next day while we went site seeing.
We had really good service from our waitress at our after dark venue with most of the menu available to us. We phoned up the club to say we were running a little late and would we still be able to get fast track in after 10.30pm and that was not a problem. The club is in an old church and very impressive with Brazilian dancers dancing on the tables.
I would certainly recommend Liverpool as there is so much to see and do. We did pick a very busy weekend for Liverpool as there was an Irish march through the city on the Saturday, a big Boxing fight in the evening and the Liverpool Marathon on the Sunday. I would recommend UK GirlThing to friends and family. In fact one of my daughter's friends is thinking of using you when she organises her sister's Hen Do in December."
Hazel Coathup October 2012
Sam Anderson - Thriller Dance & After Dark - Birmingham
"When I made my initial enquiries all information was very clear to understand and all cost were shown up-front. The option for the hens to pay separately was also a great selling point and made my life a lot easier! Laura was always very quick to reply to any emails I sent, and any questions I had were taken very seriously and dealt with promptly. She was very friendly and personal. There wasn’t a single hitch-up during the booking stage or on the day.
Great choice of hotel, very friendly staff who were happy to take endless photographs…… The drinks vouchers were also a great little bonus.
Lovely instructor who was really bubbly and made everyone feel comfortable, a few girls were out of their ‘comfort zone’ but even they joined in and enjoyed it
Our after dark venue was a perfect choice seeing as there were so many other hen do’s in there – made the atmosphere really good fun and all tables were mixing and joining in with each others games – meant everyone could really let their hair down. Staff were really good aswell, our poor waiter was a good sport as he kept being made to join in with dares etc. The choice of bars and clubs were not to our taste and I made my own arrangements for the evening but I did take out the bar guide as a back-up plan
Potentially this was a difficult hen do to organise as it was in a city that I am unfamiliar with and the group was fairly large, it was reassuring to know that all our venues were checked as being safe and ‘hen-friendly’ as I have been away before and hotels and restaurants have been very unfriendly towards group/value bookings. I would Most definitely recommend, I can’t fault the service that I received. All in all it was a great experience, I must admit I have always turned my nose up at group booking companies as I thought the personal touch would be lost but I would 100% recommend anyone to use such a company now. I did search around before I booked and found UKGirlThing to be unbeatable on value. My party expert Laura was very professional and all of her instructions were clear and precise so I knew exactly what to do and when. I set up a facebook group for my party and just posted all updates in step by step. One of the best points was the fact it was a cash free event, everything was paid up in advance which meant no stops for cash-points, splitting the bill etc."
Sam Anderson October 2012
Zoe Anthony - Pamper Me & Murder Mystery - Birmingham
"Laura was very helpful and very friendly. Everything ran very smoothly – thanks!!

Cocktail making was great fun. The bar tender who hosted us really joined in with the fun and made the day very special. An excellent value activity.
Party bus was absolutely crazy and so much fun. It’s great to mix with other groups and be shown around the various hot spots of the city.
A big thank you to the team for all your hard work organizing this event. We all had such a great time and haven’t stopped laughing since! Saturday was the perfect day and the whole day had a real party atmosphere. I would definitely recommend UK Girl Thing, Newcastle, the hotel, cocktail classes and the party bus to anybody looking for a hen night to remember.

"I found each member of the team I communicated with was friendly and keen to help. I was encouraged to book early before the football fixture list was issued to prevent any disappointment. Laura took over the management of my booking and kept me informed and updated as required.
The Hotel was in an excellent location. The décor was tired, but the rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were all lovely throughout our stay and the food (breakfast) was good.
The burlesque activity was a lot of fun and the instructor Lucy was friendly and made it fun for all of us. She took photos on our cameras whilst we were practicing our moves and it was great to have our memories captured.
We were introduced to Joe who then organised our booth and drinks, etc. We had a great time and would recommend as a great place for a hen night.
We thoroughly enjoyed the hen weekend. The people of Liverpool were lovely and so friendly. I think that it was great to have our weekend organised by UK Girl Thing and I would certainly recommend you to any brides-to-be. I think we got a great deal so yes, definitely would recommend."

The hotel was a very high standard. Amazing. All the girls on the hen weekend were very impressed at the quality of the hotel.
Spa afternoon with treatments at the hotel. Very good. The spa was lovely. The beauty therapists were really nice and all staff were very helpful.
Two course evening meal pre paid was great. We were required to pre order this was a great idea as our food was ready within 20mins of us arriving at the restaurant. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. We all enjoyed trying various cocktails off the menu. The staff were again very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them
Overall the weekend was amazing. Everyone had an amazing time. Everyone was pleased with the standard of the hotel, quality of the activities and overall value for money. I would definitely use UKGirlThing again in the future."

Everyone had a lovely weekend and all really enjoyed themselves and I would do it all again. We all had a wonderful time thank you!"

"Claudia was very helpful with my initial enquiry and offered excellent advice when I was changing party package and numbers. Jo was very helpful and kept in touch and provided all the necessary information and documentation to ensure the weekend went to plan. Thank you for all your help in organising this weekend for me.
Hotel was excellent. No problems with check in and we were able to check in members of the party who had yet to arrive. Breakfasts were fantastic and exactly what we needed after a heavy night on the drink. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Bar staff very attentive and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
Meal was excellent and well worth the money we paid for the evening meal package. We did not really take advantage of the VIP nightclub entry.
All in all we had an excellent weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything went to plan. Would recommend UKGirlThing to friends. I think I have only just recovered from the weekend! We had a brilliant time. I have never laughed so much."

Robyn Naylor - Spa-rty, Cocktail Making & After Dark - Nottingham
"I enquired first and got lots of help and advice, and Robyn took over after and I know she found it extremely well organized and could ring as much as she liked to get things sorted. Helped us choose the right place and gave us lots of options. Brilliant. Everything sorted well (through Robyn again) Robyn said she would miss speaking to UKGirlThing all the time!!
Hotel was absolutely lovely, better than what we expected. So good for what we paid and hotel staff accommodating to a hen party. Rooms lovely and cleaned everyday really well. Breakfast lush, everything perfect!
Cocktail making was AMAZING. Everyone loved it and had such a good laugh, really really funny and lots of alcohol!! The vodka train amazed me! Also the food we got afterwards in there was really good quality and we didn’t expect it to be that lovely. Cocktail making was everyone's favourite I think - that was brilliant!
Meal on first night was lovely, really quick service considering how many people there were. And then got into the club fine and had a really good night there. Last night we had dinner in hotel which was great, got the room to ourselves and were looked after well, food lovely. I think they forgot to put the wine in but this was sorted straight away.
Spa day was lovely too, really well organized and got everything that was said we would get. Only little thing – would of been better to do the manicures first, as they had to wait until the end and then ages for it to dry so couldn’t come swimming straight away! Also we loved the pool and Jacuzzi etc, was in there all the time!
Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. Everything went really smoothly with so many people and I was worried that things wouldn’t go quite as planned but everything we booked was better than expected and went according to plan. So much fun, and will definitely be getting everyone else to book their hen dos through you – I think Robyn will be!! Everyone loved it! We got so much for our money too."

Emma Williams - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Nottingham
"Jo was really helpful, I needed a few gentle reminders with a few deadlines and she was polite and professional when reminding me.
Have done cocktail making 3 times now and every time they do something different – this time there was games – again great fun for all ages .. OVER 18
We really didn’t expect the food to be as nice as it was, it was really nice and well presented .. with BIG portions so we was all happy.
We had a great weekend, and the hen was really please with all the surprises we had in store for her! 2nd time I’ve used yourselves now … if I’m lucky enough to be someone else’s maid of honour will be back I’m sure!"

Burlesque Dancing - Brilliant, all had a VERY good time, no complaints about the girl who did the activity.
Restaurant was amazing and catered for my allergies extremely well! They gave me another choice of meal and brought all tapas dishes out at the same time. They allowed the bridesmaids to go in beforehand and decorate the table as well.
Excellent weekend – we all now keep getting hen do blues and want to do it again! I have already recommended you!"

We all had an amazing time and the hotel, bollywood dancing, meal and all the extra goodies were faultless
We're all feeling very tired this morning, but it was certainly worth it. We will definitely be coming to see you again for future hen parties or even just a girlie getaway :D"

Lisa Bishop - Cocktail Making - Bristol
"Jo was great and organised a fantastic Hen Weekend for my Sister in Law! I was kept informed of all developments and communication was great. I’d be happy to recommend you
The hotel was fantastic, perfect location and excellent facilities. Pool, sauna, Jacuzzi & steam room all in really good condition. Very clean rooms & the staff were very helpful & friendly. We all agreed we would stay there again & we had some fussy ladies with us.
The cocktail making experience was so much fun and a bargain for the money paid! ALOT of alcohol! We’d never laughed so much playing the games & drinking our weird concoctions :) The food at the end was really nice, cooked perfectly & plenty of it! The certificates we all received at the end were a great little touch too :) We would definitely recommend this as a MUST DO activity!
The whole weekend was fantastic and the cocktail making experience was excellent! We cannot thank you enough for arranging such a great weekend, I’ve never seen my sister in law so happy! We will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know thinking of booking a hen weekend (I’m hoping mine will be next!)"

Fiona Drummond - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Leeds
"Jo was brilliant and answered all my questions. She was very patient and helpful throughout
The hotel was amazing, the food on the Friday night was beautiful and breakfast was lovely. Breakfast was on until 11am was brilliant for a hungover hen party such as ourselves!! The evening meal at our hotel on the Friday night was just what we needed it broke the ice and everyone got to know each other! (and the food was gorgeous!!)
The cocktail making was absolutely brilliant! We all managed to get drunk and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! I don’t think any of us did not fall in love with Richard, our cocktail instructor, he was so good with us, and stayed with us while we all deteriorated into a drunken state, and also seemed to enjoy himself!
The Saturday night meal was slightly less successful, however that was due to us being hungover already from our cocktail masterclass!! Ha ha!! Food was lovely though no complaints.
We all had an absolutely amazing weekend and no-one could quite believe the value for money that we got! 2 nights hotel and breakfast, 2x evening meals, cocktail masterclass (including shots etc) and lunch on the Saturday, and entry into a club all for £120!! Amazing value and we all said we would definitely organize something like this again! Well done UK girl thing I am very impressed with the whole package, and even the fact that people could pay in their own time by using your online payment plan! Lots of smiles, lots of memories, and photos to follow. Can’t believe it’s over now though. Thanks again xx"

Clare Fraser - Thriller & After Dark - Edinburgh
"The hotel was perfect for what we needed. Really good location and well-priced. We were delighted to get availability during the Edinburgh Festival .
Our Thriller dance class was in a good location, well organised and brilliant fun. Would recommend the Thriller Dance Experience to anyone.
Our food was great, the waiters were Italian (and hot!! Hehe!!!) and made a big fuss of us with phallic shaped deserts etc! They didn’t even mind that we had an extra guest; a naked blow up doll called Rodger! The waiters were just brilliant, they couldn’t have done any more for us.
We couldn’t have asked for more, we all had a great weekend! Cannot fault the organisation. As stressed bride with a full time job, it was great to have UKGirlThing booking and keeping track of everything. Would highly recommend! We had a great night in Edinburgh."
Clare Fraser August 2012
Paula Townson - River Cruise - Nottingham
"The reply to my enquiry was quick and informative. The deal offered was still available several weeks later (I had some trouble getting commitment!) which was great. The service I received was excellent all staff I was in contact with were brilliant, and they resolved any issues quickly and without fuss.
We had the gold package, which was a very beautiful hotel. It was easy to find, and very close to amenities of every kind – shop, bars, restaurants and clubs-great! The staff were very pleasant and helpful-to the extent they honoured the complimentary champagne on arrival even though there was only four of us
The boat party was brilliant fun, a real welcome alternative to just going out round the town. The food was good and the music was fun – something for everyones taste! The club afterwards was also great fun – very happy customers!
Overall the weekend was fantastic, everything ran pretty smoothly and we all had a fantastic time. The thing I liked most is that each person is responsible for paying their own bill, which takes a lot of pressure off the organizer! Not many companies offer this"
Paula Townson August 2012
Jill Charlton - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Liverpool

Excellent hotel. Very comfortable, with great service. Fab location …could not fault it!!
Spa and shopping. Ideal for chilling out. Girls able to do their own thing. Great! We also did Go Ape, but I booked that separately.
Meal was great value. Also great location as was only just round the corner from the hotel. The recommended club choice was great, good party atmosphere for our Disney theme. Ideal for our mixed age group (19 - 58!)
Weekend went very smoothly indeed. All party members were very impressed!! Would definitely use the company again for the next weekend away or party"

"Service was great – party planner was happy to provide a number of party options and answered any queries quickly and helpfully. Everything was dealt with quickly and the process was made extremely easy for me.
Cocktail making was excellent – the whole party were surprised at how many cocktails we had, how involved we all were, and how well our barman coped with us! Brilliant fun and would thoroughly recommend to others.
Spa-rty was also brilliant, our beauticians were great and it was a much needed relaxing day.
The meal was lovely and the staff were fantastic – allowed us to decorate the tables with photos, confetti, balloons, party poppers etc and also kept all of this for us overnight so we could collect it the following day rather than detouring back to the hotel. Food was excellent and couldn’t fault the service at all.
A brilliant weekend - I had some reservations as the process of booking and arranging had been so straightforward, it seemed too good to be true – but for the most part everything went smoothly.Everyone had a fantastic time! The whole process was so straightforward – the party planners were excellent and always replied to emails quickly and in a friendly manner – it felt as if ours was the only party they were planning! The payment tracker is brilliant, and was the main thing that persuaded me to book with UKGirlThing, as I was concerned about ending up out of pocket when I began arranging the weekend. I really can’t fault the service or the weekend"
Laura Wressell July 2012
Emma Prentice - Spa-rty & After Dark - Nottingham
"Firstly, I would like to thank you for looking after us from the minute we enquired about my hen party - every time I had a query or question it was answered straight away.
My weekend, from the minute we checked into the hotel until the minute we checked out as just spot on!!! None of my party could be faulted and no one else in the party could fault anything
The room upgrade for the bride was on the executive floor, which ment all of my party got to us the club lounge, where in here all of our drinks were free, spirits, wines, beers etc so this was a nice little suprise!!!
The meal in TGI's was excellent, really good food!!! they treated us really well... I got to go behind the bar and make cocktails and had a special shaped banana to eat!!!! its was very funny!!! The club revival,again they treated us really well...We got straight into the club and then a big free fish bowl cocktail and we had the best time in there!!!
AND then we have got the treatments at the Spa-rty - well these were simply amazing
I would absoloutly recommend any bride to be to book with you as your packages are excellent value for money - infact i really dont know how you can make any commissions from a booking as we tried to work out what the price would be by doing all this seperatly and it was way way way more!!!! But thank you so much for everything!!! I had a wicked time!!"

Chloe was brilliant at keeping me organised, she kept in touch with me regularly and answered any questions I had very quickly. She helped make this a really easy event to organise and tailored it to suit any requirements the group had and so that it ran smoothly
Bronze was basic but nice and clean and no less than we needed. It was nice that our early check in room was quite a large one as there were 9 of us getting ready in it!
Cocktail Making was very much enjoyed by all, the food and especially the drink were lovely!
Meal was lovely, no problems with the order and no having to mess with a bill as pre-paid which is a great idea
We had an absolutely amazing weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. Everything planned ran smoothly and there was no messing having to organise things or pay for stuff on the day which was great for my stress levels (and drunkenness!!).

"From the beginning of my booking the party planning experience was excellent. I was always kept updated as to where my booking was at and how to go about continuing the process
My party planning experience was brilliant during my booking. I was always kept updated and prompted for the details they needed as and when they needed them. It was a brilliant way to organise an event for multiple people and I my party organiser was very helpful every step of the way
Lovely clean hotel in a great location. Nice bar and restaurant areas
We had the best time cocktail making through the day. The staff were brilliant and went above and beyond to make our experience one to remember. The value for money was tremendous and I would recommend this to others in a heartbeat
Absolutely brilliant weekend, all the girls had a fab time and the booking and planning was so painless and stress free I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend UK girl thing to any of my friends.

Jo did a fantastic job with helping me arrange everything, always helpful and quick to respond to emails. I would just like to say thank you for all your help - you made what could have been an incredibly stressful task very easy! So thank you for that.

Lisa Hopley - River Cruise - Nottingham
"From the first phone call to enquire about booking nothing was too much trouble. All my questions were answered and lots of information given. It was so easy to book, no trouble at all. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The online payment system was also easy to use and good idea that each hen can log on and pay for themselves
My party planner was Jo. She kept in frequent contact via email to let me know when payments and other information were needed. I often had questions to ask her via email and I always got a prompt reply. She also sent me information about the Nottingham Bars etc
We stayed in a 4* Hotel. It was excellent and in a great location. The staff were very organised when we arrived, all our details were correct and our free drinks vouchers ready! The rooms were superb, very large and clean. I asked the hotel if they could arrange taxis for the 27 of us to the river boat which they did no problem at all. They even phoned my room to let me know how much each taxi was going to be.
The Party River Cruise was fantastic! Again everything was very organised, when we arrived at the boat I was given the nightclub tickets and a vegetarian option voucher. We had reserved seats on the top deck. There was a brilliant atmosphere on board. Drinks were fairly cheap and the music was great. The food was delicious, plenty of choice. The vegetarian option was lasagne, but we asked if it was possible to have vegetarian burgers instead. The chef said this wasn’t a problem at all. Everyone was up dancing! Once we boarded back at the dock buses were waiting and took us to the door of the nightclub. Large nightclub with lots of rooms to choose with different music in each. The whole night was amazing and we all enjoyed it.
We all had an absolutely brilliant time. Everything was organised as planned. Couldn’t of wished for a better hen party! Had a brilliant hen night!! Thank you so much to you and your team"

The activities we booked were amazing. The dance teacher was excellent and the bar was brilliant with the cocktail making
Great service in the restaurant and situated perfectly
We had a fantastic weekend. All hens enjoyed it. The party planning was made so much easier with UKGirlThing. Simply fantastic!"
"Hotel was loved by all and the hotel went over and above to be accommodating. We asked if we could have early check in for the rooms on Saturday and they were all ready for the girls at between 10-11am. Wonderful!
Cocktail Making was hilarious and very professional. A fantastic event and Richard was great, as well as fantastic eye candy for the group
Adonis was the funniest thing ever! I think everyone was crying with laughter and some of the sights made all of our eyes water for other reasons as well!! All the brides were asked up on stage at the end to lap dance one of the Adonis guys and was brilliant. All of the other parties came up to her at the end saying she was the best by far. Which she totally was – again hilarious!!
Glamour Puss was amazing. Room was set out lovely and the complimentary wine went down a treat! The beauticians did an amazing job with high quality make up, manicures etc. Plus the girls were lovely
Great value for money and all the girls were asking for our details as they had birthday parties / hen parties to sort and thought the weekend was in their words ‘the best hen party they had ever been on’! Excellent Service, Thank-you!"

Elaine Stott - Cocktail Making - Manchester
"It was very easy to make the booking and the staff were very friendly and polite, easy to get it organised. We were kept up to date really well by the party organiser on who had paid, who still needed to etc.
Everyone who attended has said how good the cocktail making event was, and that it was worth the money. The staff were great, really good fun and helpful, even when one of the party fell and sliced her knee open completely, the first aid team where very quick to deal with it. The young man behind the bar was a star, how he copes with 25 drunken, loud women is amazing! They were so nice, all the girls bought a memento keying which had the group pic on which was only £3 and then they sent us all these after! I now have the group shot framed and on my wall!"
Elaine Stott June 2012
Sue Barnes - After Dark & Cabaret - Brighton

Hotel and service within the hotel was excellent, also couldn't have wished for a better location
I would strongly recommend the Adonis Show, it was surprisingly tasteful and a good laugh.
The whole weekend was fantastic, my whole party enjoyed themselves and we were a mixture of ages and tastes. A big thank you for making my 'last weekend of freedom' as enjoyable as it was. Everything was perfect and I would recommend UKGirlThing without a doubt! "

"I couldn’t fault the service, I sent lots of emails requesting different information and the response was always quick and informative. Thank you!
Great location, friendly staff, clean and up to date rooms, excellent breakfast.
Spa-rty package was enjoyed by everyone. Good range of choice for treatments.
An excellent meal. All pre-ordered food correct, delicious and very helpful staff
We has a fantastic weekend, all the girls loved the activities and how organized it all was. Being able to pay in instalments was a huge bonus (especially for me as the organiser as it saved me forking out up front)"

Laila Benmousa - Spa-rty & VIP After Dark - Leeds
"Hotel was fabulous it had amazing facilities. All the girls loved the hotel. Rooms were huge and we had 2 double beds with lots of pillows. We couldn’t have asked for more at this hotel. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The staff was lovely and we were treated extremely well. Highly recommend this hotel and package
The pamper experience was lovely. The actual experience that we got by the 2 beauticians was fab. The room was set up to accommodate us and the chocolate fountain was a great touch.
The meal was lovely and plenty of alcohol was welcomed by all!! This was well worth the deal and made the evening a real hit. The club was a great place to go with a variety of floors to visit! Also the free champers was also a very good thing!!!"

The sushi teacher was fabulous and the staff at the restaurant were excellent at making sure we all had plenty to drink and were all enjoying ourselves
We all had a really good weekend and everything went to plan. Thank you for all your help and for making the hen do organisation so much less stressful. Please pass my thanks on to Larisa as she was an absolute star. I was really pleased with the service I received and all the members of staff I encountered were really lovely and helpful."

Joanne Hunt - Spa-rty, VIP After Dark & Cabaret - Manchester
"The weekend was not what we were expecting. It was what we thought and a 100 times better!! I had 30 people all of different ages and every single person loved it!
Silver hotel but to us it was diamond!! All staff were friendly and I wouldn’t have thought such a classy hotel would welcome hens so openly.
Could not have been better! My bridesmaids booked me a cheeky butler for the spart-ty as an addition to my booking and this worked our perfect and was additional treat! I will definitely be booking with UK girl thing again. Not one of my guests could believe the value for money we had and we have no idea how you made a profit!! Thank you sooo much! Shame you can’t organise my wedding haha! 100% yes to recommend and I'm already planning to contact you to book my aunties 50th Birthday :)"

"Brilliant!! Chloe sorted loads of details out for us. Found us an alternative menu and really looked after us. Pleasure to deal with.
The chocolate making was excellent, we all had such a good laugh. The "Chef" was fantastic, he made the day so enjoyable
It was such an experience and Liverpool is a wonderful place. Great to deal with and great range of activities. Would recommend chocolate making, it was brill!

Andrea Rainbow - Spa-rty & After Dark - Liverpool
"I felt as if I could relax knowing the team had all our requirements in hand & felt I did not need to worry about organizing any aspect of the weekend.
The spa-rty experience was very relaxed and the girls that carried out the treatments were friendly, likeable and by the end of the afternoon we felt very comfortable around them.
The meal booked was lovely and the price was fantastic, especially as we were really looked after by our waitress.
From start to finish we all had a fantastic time and everything ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend UKGirlThing to anyone who wants a fun packed weekend that’s totally stress free to arrange. Thanks again for organising the weekend for us."
Andrea Rainbow June 2012
Jessica Hume - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Leeds
"Brilliant service! My party planner was absolutely amazing, she was always there to help me out with any questions I had. Throughout the booking I had a number of changes but my party planner dealt with these changes straight away.
Our hotel was lovely. The facilities were great and the staff were always happy to help!
Cocktail making class was great! The bride loved it! Very impressed at the amount of drink you were given during the class. Great meal! We were given A LOT of food!
The weekend was great, the bride had an amazing time. Everything was well organised in advanced so I didn’t have to worry about anything! Great service! Thank you very much!"

Laura Foster - Cocktail Making & VIP After Dark - Manchester
"The cocktail experience just could not be bettered. From the bar man (poor thing!), to the value of the cocktails, to the food (really very good!) to the overall service and location – it was all really perfect!!
The service in the VIP After Dark venue was honestly great. The waitress was sooo busy but really friendly and not at all phased by the rowdy hen parties in there (not us obviously! ;-)
It all ran like clockwork – honestly was great to have it planned in advance. All of us could not believe the value for money from this package! The online payment thing was a real bonus! I will definitely recommend you to others!"
Laura Foster May 2012
Michelle Keown - Murder Mystery & Cocktail Making - Edinburgh
"Hotel was excellent, staff, service and food (breakfast and dinner ). Also an Italian Rugby team (Benetton Treviso) were staying so this pleased all the girls no end
Cocktail making – we would highly recommend this to any group. We were looked after by Callum Johnson in Revolution and he was excellent! Although it was an early start (12noon) after a late night everyone soon livened up…we all had a chance to make a cocktail, then there were some games and ended with lovely food. A really good fun activity.
The Murder Mystery was a laugh a minute. The two actors really guided us through a fun filled evening thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
The only downside of the weekend was that it had to end! We are all sore from laughing so much…everyone enjoyed all the activities. They really helped everyone to get to know each other. Would most definitely recommend, the service has been second to none. My sister, the hen, works in events so I was under pressure to organise a good weekend. She was extremely impressed with the entire weekend would highly recommend UKGirlThing to friends and family"
Michelle Keown May 2012
Emma Johnson - Spa-rty - Leeds
"Perfect!! The entire experience was just perfect! I could not have asked for anything more from the moment I enquired right through to leaving the hotel.
The beauticians were friendly and really made us all feel relaxed. The food was gorgeous and the treatments left everyone with a huge smile on their face!
The hotel was amazing!!! Staff were friendly and we were well looked after. The rooms were immaculate and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! The pool was a definite must and really helped us relax (even more) before our night out!
Great customer service at our meal on the night! The food was fantastic and everyone really enjoyed it! Would definitely recommend the banoffee waffle!!
I will always remember my hen weekend and what a brilliant time I had! thank you also for the lovely bottle of wine left in my room! It was a beautiful touch and really helped us get into the party spirit as we got ready! Would definitely recommend. I am already trying to think of a reason to have another celebration to use you again!"

"The weekend was great, and everyone was more than satisfied, especially with the perfume class and the dinner which turned out to be a really good deal and great food.The perfume making class was definitely the highlight of the hen party- everyone had a great time and loved the process. And the woman teaching our class turned out to be a St Andrews graduate, which was a nice surprise as we are all St Andrews grads as well! Again, thank you so much for all your help in the planning! We all had a fabulous time! Working with you really took the stress out of planning the weekend’s activities and made it affordable as well."

Fiona Sayles - Newcastle - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Cocktail Master was our activity and it was brilliant. Joe was out barman and he was fantastic and made the experience brilliant. He included the whole party and everyone said how much fun they had. And we were all surprised by how much we got to drink!
The weekend was brilliant and the bride had a fab time. Doing this way ensured there were no hick-ups along the way. This was the third hen party I have been on through UKgirlthing and each time they have improved."

"Katie my party organiser was excellent. She was always prompt at replying to my numerous emails.She was very understanding and managed to sort everything out for me. Fantastic Service. Thank you!
The hotel was superb! Good facilities that were very clean and to the level expected from a 4* hotel. I was very pleased.
Our treatments were exceptional. All my guests commented upon how happy they were with the service and surprised about the quality and length of treatment received. Our lunch buffet was also excellent!
The main comment all my guests made was that the whole weekend was such good value for money. Everything was organized so well and I was so pleased that I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything ran like clockwork. I was expecting a good hen do but it turned out to be amazing and if I wasn’t so exhausted from lack of sleep I would do it all again a thousand times over. I will definitely be recommending your service to all my friends. As I have already said I cannot find any faults and I will most certainly recommend UKGirlThing."
Kelly Whittle April 2012
Gemma Toner - Leeds - Cocktail Making & Pole Dancing
"The guys from cocktail making made our first activity so much fun, they got everyone involved and everyone fully enjoyed making and drinking their own cocktails!
We had a lot of fun pole dancing!
The weekend was perfect, met and exceeded my expectations. To get all we did and the standard it was delivered, we got the package for an absolute bargain. I just hope one day I will be having an event booked through UKGirlThing for me! Thank You so much for all your help! I would 100% recommend and use UKGirlThing again. I cannot fault the weekend at all. All our party aged 21-60 years old had an absolute ball!"
Gemma Toner February 2012
Adele Shaw - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"We did the cocktail making class and it was FAB! Such great value for money. We had so much fun making the cocktails and sampling different ones. I liked that everyone got involved, it wasnt just a case of watching the hen all afternoon! The glass trick the barman did was brilliant and everyone was talking about it well after we had left! The 'light' buffet was really, really good! The biggest potato wedges i have ever seen! We all had ‘Hens in the City’ t-shirts/vests made to wear at this activity as the weekend theme was Sex in The City.
We had our evening meal at our Spanish resturant and again it was brilliant value for money, we had more than enough food! In fact we had too much and a lot was left behind. Our Sex in the City cocktail frocks meant we got a lot of attention and provided us with lots of stories for the morning after!
We had a fab weekend! The girls thought it was wonderful aswell!"
Adele Shaw August 2011

Gemma Faugh - Nottingham - Spa-rty
"The weekend was fabulous!! I couldn't have done it without Chloe and really appreciate everything that she did for us. The hotel was beyond my expectations!! Everyone had the best time and I really feel that was because how well the hen was organized (even down to pre-ordering drinks for everyone) and also how good the staff was towards us!
This is by far the best hen company that I have used and have told everyone about how good you were. The weekend was not stressful one bit as everything I had asked for had been taken care of and the hotel were always one step ahead as they knew what I needed, thanks to chloe.
We had the sparty experience booked with a buffet lunch. The beauticians were very professional and offered us a great service. The lunch was beautiful and there was so much it was fab!! The girls were eating throughout the day and were very relaxed."
Gemma Faugh September 2011
Di Brennan - Leeds - Murder Mystery, Pamper Me & Wii Night
"We did the murder mystery and the 2 people who took the event on the evening were great!! We all thoroughly enjoyed it and it surpassed our expectations, great fun and recommended. All of the girls in our group really got into it!
We had a gym and spa day and played pool games that we made up ourselves but it was a quiet and very comfortable. The bride commented that this was one of the highlights of her weekend.
We had a private function room for the weekend on both night so we did party games and took along oldskool CD’s to play, it was amazing!! We all reminissed about out youth with some raving and had a great time. I definitely recommend the party games, we didn’t even get to play on the wii!!!!
Overall, Excellent.The bride does not drink alcohol so it was tricky to arrange something that we would all like but the choice at UK girlthing made it all easy.Easy to pay and lots of choice.It was AMAZING!!!! We are a wild bunch anyway so it was nevere going to be a boring weekend but thoroughly enjoyed the murder mystry particularly and the use of the private function room."

Beth Caroll - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Hotel was perfect, we were all next to each other which was lovely when we were getting ready and breakfast the next morning (much needed!) was lovely.
Our Italian resturant could not be faulted, the food (three course off any of the menu!) was really good and they gave us a bottle of sparkling wine as a congratulations!
Cocktail making was good, the barman was brill and we all got to make a cocktail and the food was lovely!
The weekend was superb and I would definitely recommend you to anyone booking a hen party!"
Beth Caroll March 2012
Clare Stocks - Birmingham - Spa-rty & After Dark
"All members of party were thrilled with the hotel quality and standards! The spa was great. Everyone enjoyed and felt relaxed. The staff were brilliant. We couldnt believe how good the food was in both restaurants - Chinese and Italian. Overall I cannot believe what great value for money. Myself and the party were impressed throughout the whole weekend"
Clare Stocks March 2012
Harpreet Sahota - Manchester - Spa-rty & VIP After Dark
"Although all the girls loved everything involved in the weekend, I think our spa-rty was the part that everyone enjoyed the most. The fact that we were all together, having a few drinks, along with a few treats, playing some naughty Mr and Mrs games and ‘I have never..’ kept everyone amused. But all this while being pampered, was absolutely amazing. What more could a girl ask for. And I think every one of the girls absolutely loved their treatments. The massages, body brushing and Indian head massage went down a real treat. The ladies who came to do the treatments were friendly and really nice.
I don’t think any of us were expecting the food to be quite as good as it was. Everyone was planning on eating only a little so that they were able to get drunk once in the club, but the food was fab. And we loved the fact that we were able to take wine from the restaurant into the club as we were in the same venue. Lots of other hen parties that added to the atmosphere. Club was great. Really good atmosphere in there. A nice mix of people. Was a great night and would recommend the club to anyone. I think some of the girls were worried as we were all from different age groups from 21 to 34. But the club catered for all, there was no-one that didn’t have a good time.
Weekend was FABULOUS!!! Such value for money. We just wish we had more time. We loved it so much that we are thinking of other events when we can use UKGirlThing. My 30th is coming up later in the year, and another of my sisters is getting married next year, so I’m sure you will be hearing from us again soon. Have already started recommending."
Harpreet Sahota March 2012
Vicky Toner - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Our hen weekend to Liverpool was amazing! With 24 girls all celebrating the run up to a wedding. We did not stop laughing from start to finish. I think our cheeks are still hurting! The apartments were perfect for what we required them for and the oriental was a friendly restaurant and catered well for our party. Cocktail making was excellent!"
Lauren Yallop March 2012
Charlotte McConnell - Birmingham - Cocktail Making
"Absolutely fantastic, every member of my party really enjoyed themselves and learnt about cocktail making! Our cocktail expert Abbie was brilliant, she took on our dressing up theme of clowns and continued the clowning around, making our experience truly amazing, we all left feeling very happy, excited and as if we had a new friend in Abbie. Uk Girl Thing were very helpful, everyone just wanted to make it the best it could be."
Charlotte McConnell October 2011
Kaye Roberts - Manchester - Bollywood Dancing, Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Bollywood dancing was such a laugh – everybody joined in (young and older) and had fun performing a whole routine in costumes provided by the instructor. The instructor was lovely and made sure we all felt at ease and had a good time.
Cocktail making was great fun – would definitely do again. The barman was good fun and friendly. We were running slightly behind time due to trains but he made sure we still had a great experience and even gave us extra pitchers of cocktails with our meal afterwards because we had run out of time to make a few cocktails – very thoughtful of him.
After Dark meal was fantastic for a party meal and I would definitely go back again. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We had made some really specific orders which varied from the menu given, e.g. no cheese, etc… The restaurant got every order right and served the food efficiently. The club was full of party groups, e.g. birthdays and other hen parties. It was good in that it had different themed rooms, e.g. 80s, dance, etc, so there was something to suit everybody.
Excellent value for money. All of us had an amazing time (all ages). Would def. recommend Cocktail Making and Bollywood Dancing activities. Everybody that I spoke to at UK Girl Thing was really friendly and helpful. I was kept up to date and well informed throughout the whole process. Communication was prompt and friendly. Thank you for a fantastic hen party!"
"The Treasure Hunt is a good way for people to get know each other and you’re your way around the town and shops!! Adonis was a great night out!! We all haven’t laughed so much in ages. Absolutely hysterical, everyone had a great time. Would recommend using UKGirlThing to anyone!"
Rachel Blow August 2011
Gemma Hemsley - London - Cocktail Making
"Everyone really enjoyed themselves. The staff in the bar were so friendly and our cocktail master really contributed to making the evening so enjoyable. We didn't expect much of the pizza and wedges after the session but when they arrived we were really pleasantly suprised- they were delicious and there was so much- just what you need to line your stomach. And the pizza and wedges after were lovely! Great experience, plenty to drink!
Couldn’t have asked for anything more- fantastic package, price and service! We all had a fantastic time!"
Gemma Hemsley December 2011
Laura Dunster - Leeds - Karaoke, Glee Dancing & After Dark
"This was a definite highlight of the weekend. All the girls had so much fun; it exceeded everyone’s expectations. Gayle, the dance instructor, was fantastic! We couldn’t believe we were her first booking for the Glee Dancing Divas experience. She was friendly, patient and choreographed a routine that all us non-dancers could cope with! (We enjoyed it so much we intend to perform it at the wedding reception!)
Karaoke, Again we had so much fun!!
I have been impressed with the standard of service from the moment I showed an interest. The team are always quick to respond to queries and have been consistently helpful and above all friendly."
Laura Dunster July 2011
Aisling Bird - London - Butler in the Buff & VIP After Dark
"Our butler was part of the day activity who arrived promptly was very lovely and all the girls on the hen really enjoyed the butler service! Couldn’t fault anything, and he was great doing a blind champagne tasting we had planned and overseeing our Mr & Mrs Quiz too!
We had an excellent location in the Restaurant, we had a great position in an alcove off the main restaurant floor which was very busy with other hen parties, but we had a superb seat! Dinner was very lovely and enjoyed by all and it was rather odd to not have to pay any bill! We were perfectly on time to get to the club too and it was great to walk in, again with not having any club entry, fantastic to be able to get in up to 11pm.as it was perfect timing after dinner.
The service that Katie provided was excellent and it did mean that we had all our plans sorted, booked and ready for the weekend well ahead of time. The itinerary was great as it was super to have it with us on the night so we all knew the when/where we had to be!"
Aisling Bird June 2011
Mandy Keogh - Newcastle - 4x4 Off Road Driving & After Dark
"The 4x4 driving was amazing and once my mum had finished flirting with the instructor we all did quite well haha. Highlight of the whole weekend. Fantastic staff, they made the 4x4 experience a laugh throughout. I will definitely be recommending this activity to friends.
I would recommend Newcastle to ANY stag/hen group looking for a place to party. The atmosphere was amazing. People were great and the bars are better than anywhere we have ever visited. And the evening meal… what can I say, they went the extra mile to make sure we had a great night. Even got FREE bottles of wine on the table to help us celebrate!"
Mandy Keogh February 2012
Jenny Corrigan - Nottingham - River Cruise
"We had a funny moment on the Saturday night at the boats when we realised we weren't on either of the two boats in sight. It turned out our boat was further down and was exclusively for our party. It really did make the experience all the better having the place to ourselves! The staff on the boat were so friendly and made it such an enjoyable trip.
The hotel in particular was amazing! Such a beautiful place with amazing facilities. The help from the staff on the Saturday night arranging a place we could go to be together to play games with there being such a large group of us, was fantastic! They went out their way to accommodate us and for that we really are thankful!"
Jenny Corrigan August 2011
Holly Brassington - Liverpool - Spa-rty
"The Sparty was amazing. The girls were well presented, extremely professional and well organized. The treatment rooms were perfect, the treatments and treatment times were excellent and very relaxing. The food was beautiful. Again, I could not have asked for a better service than we received. Thank you to all the girls and staff at the hotel.
The After Dark restaurant was in a perfect location and the food was good value for money!
Katie was always pleasant on the phone and couldn’t help me enough with my booking. She was very efficient and responded to all my enquiries well. The staff at UK Girl thing were lovely, really helpful and provided an excellent service. I have recommended UK Girl Thing to everyone I know who is getting married."
Holly Brassington August 2011
Amiee Brinton - Nottingham - Spa-rty
"The day was perfectly planned, the ladies that provided the service on the day were wonderful, very friendly and chatty and very professional. The venue was perfect for the occasion with a large space for us to all sit and chat and a wii to play games, and then a separate room which was tranquil and relaxed for treatments."
Amiee Brinton June 2011
Adriana Klincova - Liverpool - Comedy Club, Pamper Me & Party Bus
"We went to the leisure facilities, which had lovely pool with a great jaccuzi and we also popped into the saunas! It was nice and quiet there on Saturday afternoon, just about 7 of us. Some of my friends also had a massage or other treatments which were priced very reasonably for what we expected (Indian Head massage £25).
Comedy night was great! Comedians were very funny, it was a nice, small, intimate setting, which we really enjoyed. Comedians very funny without making you feel awkward. Raj, our Hen had a great time and even had a dance off with the host!
Party Bus was just a good laugh, it definitely added to a great party mood! If there is another party for me to organize, you will be the first one I will call!!! Excellent personal service, brilliant value for money, excellent payment conditions - RECOMMENDED ANYTIME!"
