Call us old-fashioned (and not many people do), but we’re delighted with the growing trend for hen and stag parties to stay closer to home, rather than flying off to foreign shores. There’s less of that exhausting travelling and you’re being conscious of your carbon footprint – not to mention getting more (excuse the expression) bang for your buck now the pound is plummeting against the euro.
And staying at home – or nearby – doesn’t mean being dull.
