A Guide To Your Blackpool Hen Weekend

Star Bars

Che Bar - Just next door to Crystal nightclub, Che Bar is the perfect place to begin the evening with a budget friendly menu of delicious cocktails and some of Blackpool's top DJs to warm you up for a night on the tiles. 
Revolution - We've all partied in a Revolution bar at some point, but Blackpool's is especially stylish with chic paintings all over the walls and a trendy blend of luxury seating and exposed brickwork. And the cocktails? Well you'll just have to find out how tasty they are for yourselves...
The Manchester - Named after the party capital of the north you just know this pub is going to be a lively watering hole and it certainly delivers. Mouth-watering food, a great atmosphere and a rather impressive wine list makes The Manchester a great place to get the party started.

Best Bites

Piazza Italia - You probably wouldn't expect to find an authentic pizzeria in the heart of Blackpool but that's exactly what the west coast capital has in Piazza Italia. A gorgeous slice of Italian culture in a quiet avenue where you can treat the bride to delicious cuisine and a bottle of bubbly before a girl's night out.
Michael Wan's Mandarin - With over 50 years of experience this Chinese restaurant is a serene, chic and incredibly tasty place to dine whether you're looking to detox after a late night on the town or to fill up after an exciting day of activities.

Sights & Sounds

Sights - You can't come to Blackpool without a hen party selfie in front of the world-famous Blackpool Tower and with GoHen you can even go all the way to the top to witness the incredible views from the Tower Eye. And it wouldn't be right to leave without visiting the Blackpool Pleasure Beach with thrilling rides like the appropriately named Big One (the fastest and tallest rollercoaster in Europe).

Sounds - Club Domain is a high-tech party palace with LED screens, incredible light shows and the fabulous Funktion=One sound system playing top tunes and disco classics that'll have the girls screaming "I know this one!" And with Blackpool's top DJs, Flamingo is a brilliant place to party with a range of nights to suit every music taste. So whether you're a house fanatic, an indie hipster or a wannabe rock star there's something for everyone on these neon-lit tiles.

In the Diary

June - Blackpool Dance Festival. Strictly Come Dancing with the North West's premier dance competition.
July - Comedy Carpet. The UK's funniest faces head to the seaside in this hilarious comedy festival.
September - Blackpool Illuminations. The biggest free light show on Earth with past celebrity appearances from the likes of Peter Kay, Jonathan Ross and Tim Burton. 
September - World Fireworks Championships. Witness the most incredible fireworks displays from competitors from the world over.

Top of the Shops

Forties to Noughties - If you love all things vintage, this fab boutique has classic designer clothes, shoes and bags.
Houndshill Shopping Centre - Blackpool’s biggest shopping centre is packed with familiar high street names and top brands.
Freeport Fleetwood - Just along the coast at Fleetwood you’ll find the Freeport outlet shopping village with top names at fantastic prices.

Girls About Town - Getting around Blackpool...

Getting around Blackpool really couldn’t be easier, you can comfortably leave the car parked up for the weekend, there are good bus links throughout the town as well as the famous trams along the seafront. Alternatively you can step into horse and carriages for a traditional seaside experience.

Hen Days

Cheeky, brash and often ballsy Blackpool has plenty to offer lasses who like a laugh. Treat the hen to a Dominatrix Lesson where the whole group will learn about spanking, shoe worship and other kinky games, you’ll even have a naked male slave to practise on. Or, if you’re looking to get energetic, you can get back to the 80’s in a themed dance class or try a sexy Burlesque or Pole Dance Lesson.

Hen Nights

Blackpool is a nonstop party town, from the massive choice of bars and restaurants to the town’s hottest nightclubs. But be aware that things get busy quickly, if you don’t fancy wasting your evening queuing to get in, we’ll arrange Guest List Nightclub Entry to the biggest and best clubs for your whole party. Or you can arrive in style in a Boogie Bus. From Restaurant Reservations to Comedy Clubs, we’ll help you plan the perfect night so all you’ll need to worry about is which cocktails to sample.

Nightlife

Famed for it's cheeky, brash and sassy nightlife, Blackpool is a huge hit with stag and hen dos alike for a reason: it's fab! Its nonstop party atmosphere, which lacks pretention, is just what you need to give the bride-to-be that incredible send-off into marital bliss. So, c'mon ladies, grab the girls and head to what is frequently dubbed the 'Nightlife Capital of the North'! On a Blackpool hen do it's always time to partaaaaayyy!

Blackpool Centre

All of Blackpool's biggest and best nightlife venues are condensed into a compact zone so you and the girls will not only get a saving on the purse, not having to fork out for expensive taxi journeys, you'll also save those feet from miles of walking in those stunning, but slightly uncomfortable heels! There's plenty to suit all tastes in this bubbly, vibrant and downright fab party town.

Lytham St. Anne's

A short taxi journey out of Blackpool, Lytham St. Anne's is certainly worth a trip if you're looking to escape the masses for an evening. The crowd this end is a little more glam as it's where the entertainers from the shows come to unwind and escape Blackpool's party crowd. With bars and pubs aplenty, you can certainly have just as good a night!

Shopaholics
Houndshill Shopping Centre

What's a trip away with the girls without indulging in little shopping trip?! The Houndshill Shopping Centre is the perfect starting point, boasting over sixty of the best high street stores and there are also loads of eateries to pick from.

Location: Victoria Street, FY1 4HU

The Regent

Set in an impressive 1920's cinema, The Regent is a bustling hive of all things retro with antiques, crafts and vintage clothing spread across fifty stalls over three floors. There's a lot of browsing to be had here, ladies!

Location: Church Street, FY1 3NY

Freeport Fleetwood

A little bit out of town, but totally worth the trip, Freeport Fleetwood is where you can find all your favourite high-end names at discount prices. "Grab the hen mobile, Jane, we're going on a road trip!"

Location: Anchorage Road, FY7 6AE

Hotels

"Well this hotel is perfect, but it's forty miles out of town… this one's in town but it looks like a prison… and that one, well, is it possible to give somewhere no stars?" Finding a hotel which meets all your needs can be a right old faff. Luckily, here at GoHen, we've trawled the town finding the best places about for a great stay on your Blackpool hen party weekend away.

Restaurants

Just as finding accommodation can be time consuming, not planning a restaurant is an even bigger mistake! Many hens make the classic mistake of not booking in advance and then they find themselves being turned away left, right and centre. "What do you mean you can't cater for thirteen of us, three of who are vegan and two who are gluten free, at one minute's notice on a busy Saturday night?!"

Again, we can help with that one. GoHen will book a meal at a fantastic restaurant, so you don't need to worry, giving you more time to concentrate on the important things on your Blackpool hen weekend: celebrating the bride's big send-off in style. We'll arrange:

  • A booking at a fab restaurant
  • Reserved table
  • Pre-ordered meals to save you time
  • Pre-paid dining so you don't have to split the bill at the end
Transport

With everything so close together you'll be able to dance to pretty much every destination. But if you feel like giving those feet a rest, particularly after an evening of partying, the town operates a handy, easy to navigate tram system, so you can hop on and off with ease. There are also plenty of buses or you can just as easily hop in a taxi! There are also horse drawn carriages along the seafront's Golden Mile.

When: The best times to visit Blackpool

Blackpool has a huge annual events calendar, with shows, concerts, festivals and special events all year round. Known as the Dance Capital of the World there's the fantastic Blackpool annual Dance Festival in May every year, before locals celebrate the British Armed Forces with a week of events in June. In July there's the Comedy Carpet Live with great comedy shows all weekend and in September there's the World Firework Championships taking to the stage with amazing displays in the skies. From August until November the Blackpool Illuminations remain lit, the greatest free light show on earth. Whatever time of the year you visit there's bound to be something on- mix in a bit of event sightseeing with some fantastic activities and you'll have an unforgettable Blackpool hen party.

Getting around Blackpool

Although Blackpool isn't a big place, it's worth considering how you and your group will get around and to and from your accommodation and activities. This town still retains a charming tramway which dates back from the Victorian era and can be used today! Sadly, most of the trams which run along the seafront are modern but once in a while, it's possible to catch a real, old-fashioned carriage in the summer months. For a real blast from the past, you can even travel in style in a ‘landau' or classic horse drawn carriage or failing this, a slightly more speedy bus service. We would suggest donkey rides but these beasts don't tend to be particularly reliable...
