Sights & Sounds

Sights
Sights and Sounds in SwanseaA visit to Swansea wouldn't be complete without a walk by the bay. There's no better way to soothe any sore heads than with a (hopefully) sunny walk as you're buffeted by the refreshing sea breeze. However, if sandy beaches aren't your thing, then Clyne Gardens is another relaxed spot where you can enjoy the company of your favourite ladies away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Sounds
Swansea's premiere nightclub Fiction is one of the funkiest clubs we've ever been to. It's where all of the city's trendsetters like to party and with two big rooms and plenty of floor-filling tunes playing all night long, the hens won't want to leave...we didn't!
Escape is always rocking - This venue is like an Ibiza super club in the middle of Swansea; it's sexy, fun, and impressively modern!

Best Shops in Swansea

Swansea is a seriously up and coming city that's fed up with living in big-brother Cardiff's shadow. With a range of designer shops knocking about as well as the high street favourites, there's plenty of shopping fun to be had in The Quadrant. But if you head off the beaten track you'll find some delightful little shops that are well worth a rummage through!

Girls About Town - Getting around Swansea...

Ladies, lugging your high-street shopping haul around might be a good workout, but on a hen-do? It's just too much effort! We recommend you let Swansea's excellent transport network do the hard work for you. The city has an excellent bus service courtesy of First Cymru which you can use for the price of a 1 journey, 1 day or 1 week ticket.

Hen Nights

Swansea nights out are Wales' best kept secret. It's said that they're bigger than Cardiff's, that they're sexier than Bristol's and that they've got all the charm of Bath's underground clubbing scene. Start your evening with a spot of Tenpin Bowling and have a tasty meal at the Restaurant of your choice. Then you could visit a Casino if you're feeling lucky, but most hen nights aren't complete until you give the nearly-wed the VIP treatment with our Guestlist Nightclubbing. See all our nightlife options...

Reasons to Visit Swansea for your hen do
  1. 1. The 'Mumbles Mile' an eclectic mix of buzzing bars and nightclubs.
  2. 2. Stunning surroundings and scenery.
  3. 3. Big activities for some Girl Power in the Gower.
  4. 4. Our city centre hotels put you in the heart of the action.
  5. 5. Miles of sandy beaches for you to relax and explore.

Swansea might be only the 2nd largest city in Wales and the 27th largest in the UK but this is a city that can hold its head high in any company and with comfy and inviting hotels, fantastic hen party activities and a fantastic nightlife make for a perfect hen party that is second to none.

The green, green grass of home is perfect place to spend some quality time and you don't need to be a big spender, ok, we're mixing our Welsh singing metaphors (sorry Sir Tom and Dame Shirley) but when girls just wanna have fun (Cyndi Lauper?!? Ok we'll stop now) Swansea offers so much.

Girl Power in the Gower

Situated in the Gower Peninsular on the edge of the Mumbles in an area known locally as the Welsh Riviera any bride on her Swansea hen weekend will find miles and miles of sandy beaches, stunning cliffs and coves overlooking the Bristol Channel. For intrepid hens in need of “Girl Power” the beautiful scenery on the outskirts of Swansea offer the perfect hen playground with some fantastical activities.

Rock Climbing

Party with GoHen!

Looking After No1

We often get asked what is the most important aspect of a hen weekend and our honest answer is pleasing the bride-to-be. It's her big weekend but more than that, this is finally a chance to have a break with her best friends after weeks of (often stressful) wedding planning. So don't try and please everyone, if you book a weekend that you know the guest of honour will love then most of her like-minded friends are bound to enjoy it to. That's why a Swansea hen weekend is a great choice as there is something to suit any taste, crazy adventure activities, great hotels, nice restaurants, a big nightlife all shared with her best gal pals. 

Party Without Breaking the Bank

Setting the budget for any hen party is always a tricky business, not everyone in the Bride-to-be's party will necessarily have the same amount of money available to party with so getting the budget to suit everyone is a tricky business. The good news is at GoHen we've been tacking the sensitive question for over 12 years with more than 270,000 clients having partied at the right price for them.

We have been working with many of our suppliers for over a decade which means they offer us fantastic rates as long standing customers, that means we can pass these savings on to you to help get you the best deals possible.
“Sounds a bit too good to be true.” That's an understandable thought (we're often sceptical about deals when we're shopping) but here's how it works;
If we give you the best weekend that you'll be talking about for years then you'll book with GoHen again, not only that but you'll tell your friends about us. 96% of hen parties say they would use GoHen again so we know we're doing something right, having that many fantastically happy hen parties firstly let's us know we're doing our job well, secondly it means they'll book with us again. So getting you the best prices really is good financial planning in our eyes.

When Should We Plan A Swansea Hen Weekend?

Well there's no denying the fact that Wales does have a reputation for a spot of rain now and again (mostly from Welsh people) however it really isn't as bad as they might let on. In fact Southern Wales including Swansea sits on the Bristol Channel overlooking Somerset and sees some fantastic weather in the summer months.

Getting To Swansea

Swansea is easily accessible by road or rail with direct trains from London Paddington. If you're going to be driving then sooner or later you'll be hitting the M4, if you join the M4 before entering Wales please note there is a toll bridge (The Severn Bridge) for which a charge applies, at the time of writing this page it stood at £6.40 so make sure you have some coins handy (you only have to pay on the way into Wales and not the way out. Go figure!).
