Girls’ Holiday: Where Are The Best Places To Go?
We all love going on a girls’ holiday but often need some hints and tips on the best and cheapest places to go (all with plenty of surrounding bars and spas).
‘Shall we have a girls’ weekend‘ might just be the best text you can receive from your friends! It just clinches above ‘okay so’ and ‘guess who I just saw’. We LOVE a bit of drama.
We all need a way to unwind from our daily lives and escaping for a weekend away with the gals is the perfect way to let your hair down. Plus, it gives you endless hilarious stories (and a deeper knowledge of hangover cures).
However, it’s not always possible to jet off to the Costa Del Sol or some Greek Islands to stroll along a sandy beach or some fishing villages (as much as we wish it was). So, we’ve found some equally fun girls’ holidays in the UK.
In the spirit of girl power, we’re bringing you the ultimate girls’ holiday destinations, whether you’re wanting to pursue a pamper or search for a cocktail.
After all, who doesn’t love anything with the word spa in it?
With its quaint English feel, you can check out some shops on the high street, go for an afternoon tea or a little (or large) cocktail as Bath has it all.
Must See: If there is one thing that cannot be missed it’s the Thermae Bath Spa.
The spa has two baths; an inside Minerva bath and an open-air rooftop pool with views of Bath and the surrounding hills.
Accommodation: Mr Darcy’s Abode
With 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a smart TV and free WiFi and situated near to the town centre, this is the perfect place for any hen dos, birthdays or even just a weekend away!

If you’re looking for a city with an identity then head to bonnie Edinburgh. With a medieval old town, castle and plenty of bars, you’ll never find yourself looking for something to do.
If you fancy something a bit more active with some spectacular views, you can climb Arthur’s Seat or stick to the Royal Mile for some shops and bars.
Must-See: The castle is a must-see with views over the city and the Scottish crown jewels to boot.
Accommodation: There are plenty of AirBnBs in the Scottish capital… but this one has a projector and Netflix! And it’s in walking distance to the town centre… need I day any more.
Liverpool is the place to be if you’re looking for somewhere high in fun but low in price.
Full to the brim of culture, you can visit museums, The Cavern or take the ferry across the Mersey.
Concert Square is the place to be for drinks with a heap of bars, you can fall out of one and into the next.
Must-See: The Royal Albert Dock is a great place for a wander. Opened in 1846, the docks are now full of restaurants, shops and swanky bars to keep you entertained from day into night.
Accommodation: Z-Hotel is cheap and cheerful hotel smack bang in the centre of the city. They even offer a free glass of wine and cheese and biscuits in the evening!
Naturally, this Irish city is cracking any time of the year but for a truly exciting trip, head there over Christmas or during the New Year.
The Guinness Storehouse is a great place to visit, even for those who aren’t a fan of the beverage.
There’s also the zoo, the castle and plenty of shops and cafes. You can even take a day trip to the stunning cliffs of Moher which have been used in films such as the Half Blood Prince and The Princess Bride.
Must-See: Temple Bar with its live music and massive reputation is the place to be for a lively night.
Located in the heart of the city, it’s the perfect place to set you up for a night out in the capital.
Accommodation: Hotel 7 is just a 15-minute walk from Temple Bar! Or with a restaurant and bar in the hotel itself, you’ll only have a short stumble to bed after.
MOOR HALL HOTEL BIRMINGHAM
This spa hotel is set in a beautiful parkland within easy reach of Birmingham. The country house hotel offers guest rooms, a restaurant and bar. Not only that, a stay gives you access to the spa facilities including a swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room.
You can take a walk around the grounds or pop to Birmingham for a spot of shopping dependent on how long you’re staying.
This place is perfect for a more relaxing, holiday escape to switch off from the rest of the world and just spend some quality time with your friends.
And whilst it boasts 4 stars, it definitely won’t break the bank as it averages about £100 for two people for one night!
