What hens say about Bath...

Rated 4.79/5 from 207 reviews

Do not hesitate to use Groupia and GoHen, not only did they save a lot of time, but also money! They offer great activities that we wouldn't of found ourselves and also the property we rented was incredible. The booking and paying process is simple. Really good if you have a large group and do not want to be responsible for any money as you can do individual payments. I will be booking again.

A Guide To Your Bath Hen Party

Where to Drink in Bath

The spectrum of places to grab a beverage in Bath is huge. And with everything in easy walking distance, you’re never more than a couple of doors away from a delicious pint or refreshing cocktail. That’s right; you’re in ideal bar crawl territory!

Head to Walcot Street, the artisan quarter, for classic South West locals or eclectic bars. A little further up are the cornerstones for craft beer in the city. The city centre is thriving at night, with wine bars, underground cocktail bars, gin bars, polished pubs and nightclubs aplenty. You’ll feel as though you’re in Paris during summer, as vendors bring out the parasols and elegant outside seating.

Start from Kingsmead Square or George Street and point in any direction. You’ll find a drinking destination in seconds.

Sightseeing in Bath

Sights
Bath is rich in fantastic architecture and a walk around the city really is a great way to cure any tender heads the night after the day before. The Royal Crescent and Bath Circus (used for the famous "Who Will Buy" scene in the musical "Oliver Twist") are quintessentially English and not to be missed.
Great Pulteney Street is another famous musical backdrop, having set the scene for the recent big screen adaptation of "Les Miserables" featuring Hugh Jackman.
The Roman baths that give the city its name can be found right in the city centre next to the quite spectacular Bath Cathedral but queues can get a little long at peak season.

Sounds
The very best of Bath’s musical scene can be found quite literally hanging around on street corners. Bath has a number of designated pitches where buskers and street performers can be found 7 days a week with some amazing music.
If you manage to catch The Showhawk Duo you’re in for a particular treat.

Getting Around Bath

Walk. Bath is a really compact city so everything in the centre is easily accessible on foot. However, if you do feel the need for transport then a Next Bike is an eco-friendly and fun way to get out and about. You can pick up bikes all around the city centre and simply return them to another bike docking site.

So are our offices! GoHen are based right in the centre of the city and know Bath better than any other hen party provider.

Shopping in Bath

Bath is fantastic for shopping, there are some real gems among the independent shops and also a good collection of vintage clothes shops. Bath is incredibly trendy and there’s no end to the variety of cafes and bars when you’re feeling a bit of shopping fatigue. But a word of warning if you’re driving into the city centre, parking in Bath is expensive so park and ride is definitely the budget-friendly option.

All the usual suspects and big name high street stores can be found in the city centre, head down to Southgate for designer brands like Kurt Geiger, Tommy Hilfiger, Joy, Calvin Klein and 71 Queens. Bath is particularly good for jewellery and has some fine stores in amongst its lanes and side streets.

Hen Days

Our Somerset Games is becoming almost mythical! The source of so many great hen party laughs it’s no wonder it has become such a hit. A day of non-stop fun, challenges and all manner of shenanigans that you’ll be talking about well after your weekend is over.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more sedate then why not stop for a spot of afternoon tea instead?

Hen Nights

Here’s a quirky fact for you, all of Bath’s nightclubs are tucked underground, this is to reduce noise and so not to disturb the good folk of this beautiful city. Essentially all the late night venues can be found in old vaults and cellars giving them a unique vibe. The music is excellent and the clubs feel all the more intimate for their ancient structures. If you’re looking for an idea for your night out we’d recommend a comedy night. Absolutely perfect fun for any hens who like a laugh.

When's the best time to visit Bath?

In the summer the city glows, the Bath stone reflects the sun to literally light up the buildings into the evenings, bars and restaurants spill into the historic streets and there's genuinely a really pleasant atmosphere. In the winter the cosiness of the city pulls you in, providing visitors with a warm welcome and a wealth of great venues to settle into. It's small enough to be manageable but large enough to give you and the girls a whole host of hen do options. There are a few exceptions but for the most part our recommended activities are usually available whenever you visit and the nightlife stays busy year round. Spring and summer enjoy the best climate, usually with sun and good temperatures, during these seasons Bath’s many parks fill with sunbathers and while the temperature drops over the winter months, it heats again up with mulled wine and the famous Bath Christmas Market.
