Surrounded by beautiful blue sea and sandy white seafront, Portsmouth is a sublime location for any girls who really do like to be beside the seaside! Whether you're keen to lay out a towel and catch some rays or grab a surfboard and ride some waves, we've got some fantastic activities to suit. If you're more a confirmed landlubber than a salty sea dog, there's no need to knock Portsmouth off your list of potential party destinations unlike some seaside cities, Portsmouth has plenty to offer in it's own right, from award winning shopping facilities to historic museums and sights not to mention our incredible range of 45 leisure different leisure options for the daytime!
If you think sunbathing on a beautiful yacht, chatting with your friends, and generally living life like you're a millionaire heiress sounds like fun… well, we agree and have yacht charters that will allow you to do just that. On the other hand, if your group of girls are more likely to enjoy a white knuckle, white water ride, ribbing might be for you. You'll get beautiful views of the English coastline as you race past them at high speeds on a breathtaking ride. Of course, not all groups are fans of getting soaked through and sometimes, just whetting your whistle is enough! Here at GoHen, we have plenty of hen activities in Portsmouth to suit. A cocktail mixing hen party allows you to shake and stir up a storm keep to the nautical beach theme and go for some rum with Mojitos, Pina Coladas, and Cuba Libres.
Excitement, adrenaline and exhilaration don't exclusively belong to the stags hens are equally able to get in on the action with a range of Portsmouth hen activities that will get the blood pumping and the hearts racing. Go karting is leagues ahead as the most popular motorsport around, getting the girls to put pedal to the metal and speeding off in an heady whirl. There's more merciless hen on hen action in paintballing, which allows you all to clear your heads and let out any pre-wedding tension… though careful who you hit or you could end up causing a little, too. If, however, you like your competition a little more relaxed, a deep sea fishing party is just the way to do it. All the benefits of a yacht charter, and with the added bonus of taking home something to show for it potentially, anyway.
A quick spin around the dance floor is one of the top choices, and in Portsmouth, there are around 20 different options to chose from so whether you're a salsa pro or you can barely manage the Macarena, you'll find something to suit. Learning a couple of routines to a favourite musical is particularly popular, so if you know what songs your best friend belts out in the shower, book her straight in. The dancing Portsmouth hen activities could include a Grease lesson where you finally learn how to hand jive, a Chicago session where you can give them all the old razzle dazzle, of course, or keeping Baby out of the corner with some Dirty Dancing. With other options including hits like Mama Mia, Glee, and Moulin Rouge, any theatrical dancing hens are spoilt for choice… and if they just can't pick, go with the Musical Mayhem session!
In a destination like Portsmouth, it's easy to rely on there being something around for tourists to do and thus plenty for you and the girls, too. On a hen, though, it's not just any old trip it's about giving the bride-to-be the best weekend possible, and you're not going to be able to do that without some careful forethought and preparation. The planning, GoHen can help with - of booking it all in, working to everyone's budget, and getting everyone there on time and in one piece. Aside from that, it's just a case of narrowing down the many Portsmouth hen activity ideas to one that suits the bride best, and you're on your own there (although we can definitely give you some tips, if you want).
Getting the balance of activities right during your weekend is difficult after all, you don't want your hens sitting in boredom and counting down the hours till the evening starts and they can escape to the pub, but neither do you want everyone exhausted and crashed out in bed by 9 o'clock. If you want to see how to structure a good time, check out our packages… or if none of those strike your fancy, give us a call and we can help you tailor make your own Portsmouth hen activities.
