It's easy to overlook Reading, slipped in between the formidable London nightlife and distinguished Oxford days, but its position in between the two means Reading actually gets the best of both worlds. Whether you're Oxonians looking for a more varied nightlife, Londoners looking for a better deal for your dosh, or even locals hoping for a quality night out, Reading hen nights have plenty to offer and punches well above their weight in terms of after-hours activities. Lively clubs, bars and restaurants promise an exciting evening out, and when you throw in some of GoHen's night time activities like a murder mystery meal or a poker party, Reading has all the potential of its popular neighbours, at a much better cost!

Your guide to hen nights in Reading

Bars, Pubs and Clubs

Reading may be rich in culture and history but it doesn't stop there - once the sun's down and the strobe lights are on it's a buzzing, lively town full of partygoers! It might not have the most bars and clubs in the South West, but the compact size of the town and the strong student population ensures they're of great quality and fantastic value two things that promise good things! Reading hen nights have everything they need by way of drinks, from intimate wine bars to rambunctious pubs, with a good selection in between as well. There's nothing lacking on the nightclub front either - the underground music scene in Reading is thriving, with a huge number of clubs either catering exclusively to the indie crowd, or, in the case of the bigger venues, dedicating nights to the genre you'll find an excellent mix of live, alternative and rock available in clubs! Pop princesses are well cared for, too, with clubs blasting a range of party anthems, chart, dance and commercial hits. If you're hoping to take advantage of the full range of the Reading hen nightlife and it'd be a mistake not to add nightclub entry to your weekend to make sure you get into the hottest spots ahead of the crowds.

Remarkable Reading

It's not all about hitting the bars and clubs of an evening. A hen night is an occasion, and when you're in a town with as much to offer as Reading has there's no excuse not to go all out. If you're hoping to get the night off to an incredible start, we've got plenty of ideas to help you make the most of the Reading hen nightlife.

Murder mystery evening if you'd like a more sedate start to the night, why not try a murder? Get your deerstalkers on and your magnifying glass out after a three-course meal and a show it will be up to you to solve the mystery.
High rolling hens if you'd fancy flashing the cash (or just getting done up in a cocktail dress and heels), a casino is perfect. We can't guarantee you'll hit big on the tables but if you were, it's more likely to happen here than sitting in the hotel room. Upgrade to the deluxe experience for a meal and some gaming tuition too.
Comedy club if you're with all your best girl friends, chances are good you're going to be having a laugh all weekend, but there's no harm in adding a few extra lols and rofls on top.

Getting Around Reading

How to get around isn't usually the primary concern of a Reading hen night, but if you're hoping to avoid trudging through dark streets in heels trying futilely to hail a cab, it might be worth giving a little thought to. There are few options available: buses run hourly at best at weekends and can get expensive, and taxis can only be reliably found by the train station. Luckily GoHen has a solution that not only solves your travel needs but also adds a little style to the proceedings a limo. A lot more glamorous than sitting at a bus stop, and there's a good chance of a few champagne flutes too.

Go with GoHen

Reading is a phenomenal choice for hens willing to push the boat out, and try somewhere different as their hen night destination! Flashing the cash in a casino, chortling in a comedy club, or cruising round town in a limo are all possible with GoHen! You and the girls could try something completely different and stop by the stadium to see some fit footballers strut their stuff, or get into the competitive spirit yourselves and have a go at ten pin bowling. It's a great way to get all the girls talking, and works perfectly as a pre-dinner activity before you get all dolled up and hit the town! Check out the range of packages online to see if any suit you and if they don't, give us a call, and create your own customised package for your Reading hen night. With dancing, pampering and drinking to do, Reading is a superb site for your celebrations!
