History and Culture:
We all know that the Romans had great significance in developing both the historical and cultural aspect of the UK. In fact, a lot of people suggest that the Romans were gunning to make Chester the capital of the UK, but obviously failed. This is probably one of the reasons that the city is so popular and why people tend to sway towards having a Hen Do in Chester.
Because the city has great walls, it was protecting any people inside from invaders. This effectively made it a great place to camp out and the Romans soon set up their camp here. As an important port city for years to come, it was no wonder that the Romans saw the significance of Chester and why so many people choose it as the location for their hen parties. As the city of Chester has been occupied by Romans and Saxons, it has influences of both in its stunning architecture.
When it comes to having a great hen party, shopping is top of any hen party list. Chester's shopping facilities are extremely impressive. Better still, all of the shops are located in high quality old architecture, which makes the experience that much better.
Chester is not necessarily known as the party town of the century but that being said, there are still plenty of great places to go out and have a great hen night. For something different, check out ChesterBoat's themed disco nights.
