Hi I was on a hen there 2 years ago. Blackpool is one of the tackiest places Ive ever been but we had a ball. You could dress up any way you wanted, never had to worry about boucers with big egos or niteclubs with ridiculous dress codes We met lots of other hens and stags there too. It all depends what you're in to really.....but we had a blast and to be honest I thought Id hate it

Blackpool is a kip...sorry! Not my type of place but depends what you are into I was only there for a day and would not go back, would be afraid to see at nightime to be honest

DH went on his stag there last year and well he was so disappointment. He had been there about 8 years ago for a weekend and loved it had a great time but said it has gone very rough. I would think about Manchester or liverpool if I were you if your thinking the uk. Edinburgh would be a better choice.

Hi girls, Yeah have been to Liverpool SOOOOO Many times and on so many hens that Blackpool was suggested.... I know it's tack heaven!!! But sure so are hen parties really!!! I just want a weekend with all my friends where I can totally let my hair down and go somewhere where I know there will be no problems with ALL of us getting in somewhere... I'm sick of bouncers not letting a member of a gang in JUST BECAUSE! A friend of my friends was there a few weeks ago and she said it was fantastic for a hens night but that it is a bit of a kip and that you cannot go with your hopes too high. To be honest, not mad on Edinburgh - very studenty.... and I just wanted to go somewhere different.... H2B is going to Newcastle same weekend... I guess I will just have to wait and see, but thanks for all your thoughts...
