After analysing booking and traffic data throughout 2019, www.Big-Cottages.com has published a list of the top ten locations for both hen and stag parties in the UK, along with the top European destinations brides and grooms travel to ahead of their big day. Liverpool was revealed as the most popular city for hen parties, while Bristol topped the list for stag party destinations.
The data shows that on average, women spend £93 per night on accommodation for a hen party, compared to an average price of £83 for men - exactly £10 less per night. Research conducted by the marketplace also found that men are two times more likely to have a stag do abroad than their significant other.

Matt Fox, CEO of www.Big-Cottages.com, said, “Over the years hen and stag dos have grown in popularity, and for some couples, these parties can be even more important than the wedding day itself! At www.Big-Cottages.com, hen and stag parties are one of our most popular markets, with thousands of couples heading to our properties every week for their pre-wedding celebrations. As such, we were intrigued to find out which areas of the UK are the most popular!
“It was no surprise to see that the top locations are some of the more affordable cities in the UK. This is also the case with European destinations, with Krakow being the cheapest location overall. Although the celebrations are getting more elaborate, it appears that money is still a deciding factor when it comes to bride and groom’s pre-wedding getaways, and ultimately, will dictate the destination they head to.”
