Newcastle is top pick for hen's celebrating their last days of single-life before tying the knot with the one they love. Women put Newcastle in first place this year, followed by Dublin and Marbella. Barcelona, Edinburgh, and London also made it to the top ten Hen locations for 2015.

According to 'Last Night of Freedom' stag parties chose Newcastle as the second best place, beaten only by Prague. Other destinations that made it into the top ten included Barcelona, Amsterdam, Krakow and Budapest.

This year’s stag parties were more likely to travel abroad than the hens, with only three out of the top ten stag destinations being UK-based; Newcastle, Bournemouth and Nottingham. Three out of the ten of the most popular hen do locations were based outside of the UK, the same figures as 2014 - but up from two in 2013 and one better than 2010. Whilst the hens are slightly slower in the uptake of going abroad for the weekend celebrations, the trend is gaining more popularity.
