You will quickly become completely enchanted with this medieval, walled city.
When in Town
Successfully combining the old with the new, York sets out to capture the heart of visitors. Prepare to fall in love. You have been warned! Take in the city walls, admire the imposing Minster, consider the historical characters who have stayed in the Castle, take a stroll down the Shambles, shop til you drop and then enjoy a lovely glass of chilled wine at a bar along the river.
Our Top Tip
To ensure you don't miss a thing that this Yorkshire beauty has to offer, take on the Treasure Hunt challenge.

What to Do
You York Hens will find a city oozing with history, culture and style. Around every corner you'll bump into signs of York's rich past: the Castle, York Minster, the Dungeon... the list goes on. From the quaint and the quirky, to the cool and trendy a York hen night has the lot!
Escape the hustle and bustle and go explore the beauty that is the Yorkshire Dales, or spend your hen day in York cruising the River Ouse. Will it be Nude Life Drawing (ooooh errr), grabbing your dancing shoes or indulging in Pampering?
A Night to Remember
You'll find the familiar names in terms of bars and clubs, but dig a little deeper and find some true treasures both old and modern. Trust us for some quality suggestions.
Our Ghost Tour takes you on a chilling tour searching out the ghouls of York. Party Night Premium gives you food, a free drink and the chance to party til late. What girl doesn’t relish a cocktail or cool glass of champagne, is there really a better way to get the night started? Vudu Lounge on Swinegate is one of our firm favourites.

I used freedom for my friends hen party, they provided excellent service throughout the whole organising process and we're a great help with any questions I had. I had an issue with the provider of one of the activities and freedom were excellent in helping this get resolved. The accommodation booked by freedom was amazing, I would definitely book to stay there again myself. The hen weekend was a success and my friend had a fantastic time. Thank you so much for your help in making my friends hen party a weekend to remember. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I was daunted when asked to plan a hen-do, but freedom made it so easy! The app is fantastic for payments, contact was regular and friendly, the place we stayed was lovely and the events we booked were fantastic. Thank you!
By Carly Bourne
The event went really well thank you and everyone enjoyed it. The life model was lovely- he made sure that we were all ok (if anyone felt embarrassed or shy)! He was very chatty and friendly, which was good and gave us tips for how to draw sections of the body. It was a good pace and he kept us all busy and we all had a great time! The little competitions were good and the bride to be also enjoyed her bottle of prosecco at the end!
Thank you for organising it for us!

I booked a school sports day activity for my friends hen do. It was such good fun and the bride to be loved it. The chap who ran the event was fun and enthusiastic. Freedom Ltd are very organised and easy to deal with (quick response time to queries etc) so I would recommend them.

Kieran was fab at making the event relaxed and fun! Huge thank you to him and his colleague, Steve! My sister has had a brilliant hen weekend and said this was the highlight!
By Michelle Waters
We had a great day with the package provided by Freedom.
We booked pamper treatments as part of a hen party. The booking system was easy to use and the booking team communicated well with me.
We were slightly disappointed to be told last minute that one of the hens couldn’t have the treatment she requested due to a medical condition, however the therapist did then offer an amazing alternative!
On the day the therapists turned up on time and were so friendly and worked hard to provide a great day for our party!
One of our party had to drop out at the last minute, but because her treatment had been paid for the therapist was happy to extend the treatments of the bride to be and another hen to cover that.
I had a back massage and it was probably the best I’ve ever had!
The bride to be had a wonderful day and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Would definitely recommend this package to others organising a girls weekend or hen do in the future!
Thanks for a fab time!!!
