Bride-to-be Rachael Mullins down from London for a bit of class
Bride-to-be Rachael Mullins chose Bath because she wanted something "a bit classier".
The 27-year-old from London and her 28-year-old sister and maid of honour Claire said she had chosen the city because of the variety on offer.
"We came because it is so beautiful and I knew that we didn't want to go somewhere which was hen party central," she said. "We wanted something a bit classier for a nice group of girls."
The group rented a self-catered flat in the city centre and spent the weekend eating at Cosy Club, taking part in a cocktail masterclass at Circo bar and enjoying arguably Bath's biggest attraction for hen parties, the Thermae Spa.

Claire said: "A big pull for us was the spa, because we knew it would be a nice thing to do at the end of the weekend.
"It has been amazing, really good, because everyone has been so friendly. The central location was why we booked the house, so we could walk everywhere.
"We have all felt really safe and have had no problems."
Bride-to-be Rachel Syms, from Verwood in Dorset, and her hens had also opted for a cocktail class at Circo.
The eight-strong party, which including the 22-year-old's sister Becky and mum Caroline, learnt how to make three cocktails as well as discovering more about the ingredients they were using.
"We went to the Thermae Spa and that was really good," said Rachel, an estate agent who will marry fiancé Luke Higgins next month.
"Bath is lovely but I don't know what has been planned for me later."
Rachel's sister Becky had organised the hen party, with everyone paying £195 for their stay in the city.
"Rachel didn't want to know anything about it and just wanted to be surprised so I contacted her friends and found out when they were available," she said.
"We chose Bath because it was easy to get everyone together and easier than going abroad. It's a nice place and we all love it here."
