A Guide To Your Cambridge Hen Party

Where to Drink in Cambridge

King Street is home to a number of traditional pub venues where a homebrew or two can be found if you're after the true tipple of Cambridge. In fact, there are several brew-pubs dotted around the city which, to us, sounds like a hen-challenge!
This beautiful city is easy to explore by foot, so a short wander from the city-centre will have you bumping into all sort of vibrant cocktail bars or wine merchants. Underground speakeasy lounges are harder to find but worth the hunt for an exclusive night out. Up near Magdalene College, and amongst several punting stations, you'll find a cluster of riverside watering holes to check out after you've been for a glorious punt on the Cam. On a sunny day, it's pure bliss up here!

Sights & Sounds

Sights
No trip to Cambridge is complete without a trip on a punt. But forget the strawberries and cream, try our champagne punting hen do.

Should any of the girls wake-up suffering from a little overindulgence from the night before Cambridge University Garden has over 40 beautiful acres to enjoy fresh air and soak up some rejuvenating rays.

Sounds
For top sounds, great laughs and fantastic drinks Vinyl is the city's premier nightclub and THE place to party. Situated in the city centre the club has exceptionally drinkable cocktails and a state-of-the-art sound system. This superb venue has something to suit all tastes (although, rumour has it, there ain't no party like an S-club party). But don't waste time queuing, GoHen can arrange night club entry in Cambridge for your whole hen party.

Best Shopping Spots

Jemporium Vintage - Lovers of vintage fashion are in for a treat at Jemporium. Superb vintage and pre-owned designer labels.
Rejuvinate - Why aren't there more shops like this in the world? A real Aladdin's cave of curios, retro and vintage treasures.
Grafton Centre - If you prefer High St brand names you'll find all the usual suspects at The Grafton.

Getting Around Cambridge

Thankfully most of the city centre has been pedestrianised making it easy to get around in the evenings and it is very heel friendly. All our hotels are located in the city centre keeping you in the thick of the action.
If you do want to travel further afield a MegaRider ticket will give you unlimited travel during your stay.
Alternatively, you can go native and hire a bike from City Cycle Hire for some hen party pedal power.
However, the most sophisticated and enjoyable ways to see Cambridge is with a Champagne Punt along the river.

Hen Days

From energetic Dance Classes to calorific Afternoon Tea, a Cambridge hen do has more variety than you can swing a diploma at. Thirsty hens can enjoy Cocktail Mixing Classes or if you'd prefer to detox you can enjoy an all-out pampering day. We have over 50 Cambridge hen party activities to choose from.

Hen Nights

Cambridge has indeed been home to some real brainiacs: Jimmy Carr, Mel Giedroyc, Stephen Fry, Carol Vorderman. So it could be the perfect place to put your grey matter to the test on a hilarious Murder Mystery Dinner or for more laughs and slap up grub you can enjoy a Butler in the Buff. But once the dancing starts, make sure you're not waiting in line, we can arrange Guest List Nightclub Entry to the city's hottest clubs.

Party: Where Cambridge hen parties head after dark

In Cambridge, you'll encounter an eclectic group of pubs, bars and restaurants, all with a great atmosphere and lively vibes. If you fancy a look at the pub scene, head to King Street, which used to be home to the King St. Run where Cambridge students would have to run between all the pubs, stopping at each to down a pint! Have a go if you like by all means but luckily, this tradition is not compulsory. Nowadays, there's simply a fantastic selection of cosy pubs which enjoy picturesque scenery to enjoy. The main night-time district of choice in the city though is Grantchester where you'll be able to find a good selection of bars and then it's on to the town centre where all the best clubs and late night venues come to life. Why not enjoy an evening of sexy Butlers in the Buff or a murder mystery night, followed by our ever-popular guest list nightclubbing? We have plenty of amazing options for your hen night out in Cambridge.
