A Guide To Your Essex Hen Weekend

Where to Drink in Essex

This is a county with style, so no matter whereabouts you're planning to party hen-style, you'll never struggle for places to grab a well-deserved drink after a day of action or adventure (or pampering).

Brentwood isn't just the home of TOWIE, but terrific pubs, too! The High Street hosts some stylish cocktail havens and some of the big boys in booze.

Colchester's city centre is a hive for taphouses and summer day hangouts where cocktail menus are long and lust-worthy.

Chelmsford also impresses with an urban range of cooler late-night bars and an array of traditional pubs down Moulsham Street that make for pub crawl perfection on sunny days!


If any of the Essex hen do pals are suffering from tender heads then a stroll along the world's longest pier could be the perfect tonic. Grade II listed Southend Pier extends 1.34 miles into the Thames estuary and on a hot summer's day is not only a fantastic walk but will also help the girls work up a thirst, "Hair of the dog anyone?"
Fans of the hit show "The Only Way Is Essex" can visit some of the shows locations.


If you like your music live but also want to dance then The Edge in Basildon has a great line up of live bands, top DJ's and some fabulous cocktails. There's also some good honest pub style grub to tuck into if you're feeling peckish.
If you want an evening where the music, cocktails and atmosphere is chilled to perfection then Faces Lounge and Bar in Ilford is the perfect Essex hen party palace. To really end your night in style our Guest List Nightclub Entry will give you hassle-free entry to the hottest clubs.

Quickfire Essex FAQs

What is Essex famous for?

Essex is famous for glitz, glam and a big night out – it's the perfect place to head to live the TOWIE life on the bride's big weekend away. Not only is it a great night out, there are plenty of amazing shopping spots to check out, plus you can take on a load of unique hen adventures to make it truly memorable.

Where can we go on an Essex night out?

There's plenty of choice for nights out if you're heading to Essex for a big celebration. From Brentwood (the home of TOWIE) to Colchester, Chelmsford and more, you'll be spoilt for choice for where to head.

How long does it take to go from London to Essex?

The fastest way is to catch a direct train from Fenchurch Street in London which will take you to Essex in about an hour. If you take a coach, the journey will be slightly longer because of the London traffic.

How many days should I spend in Essex on a hen do?

The majority of hens who book their weekends through GoHen go for at least two days. Many Londoners will make a day trip, but if you want the full night out experience, you'll need to find somewhere to stay.

The Only Way is GoHen

If you're looking for a truly memorable location, then an Essex hen do is "totally reem!" Fast cars, gorgeous people, trendy bars and amazing nightclubs. It's almost like the county is a purpose built hen party paradise. Essex is a county built on partying and looking good and it does them both very well. You and the rest of the hens can jump right into the action and become a part of the phenomenal and incredibly glamorous nightlife scene.

"Well jel..." - Get the Best Essex Hen Do Deal

Even Essex girl Rachel Riley's maths wouldn't be able to get you a better deal than GoHen. Sounds like a bold claim we know but we're happy to prove it and we don't even need a big board and giant marker.

When you book your hotel/activities/nightlife as a single group you'll be paying the full rate, at GoHen we send thousands of hens away every year. Booking so many hens means we have a little more muscle for helping to secure the best deals. These are savings we're able to pass on to you.

Our philosophy is simple, by saving our hen party organisers time, hassle and money, while still providing the very highest quality weekends, we can be sure that our Essex hen do groups won't just book with us again, but they'll also tell their friends. We get huge numbers of repeat bookings from happy hens and 96% of our groups say they'd book with GoHen again.


This really is a county that will surprise you. The scenery is spectacular (no we're not just talking about the mouth-watering Butlers in the Buff although, yes, they are!), the activities are brilliant and hilarious while the nightlife is "off the hook!"

Essex Boys UC&P

While the daytime action in Essex is hilarious and offers some fantastic hen party action, Essex is all about the nightlife. And yes, Essex boys really are as hot as they appear on TV so it's only right that you get UC&P (Up Close & Personal). Yes, they might spend a little too long and in front of the mirror and hog your hair straighteners but we're willing to forgive them when they look so hot!

One thing we'd better warn you about, though, is that they're really not as daft as the TV might make them look. Apart from Joey, he really is that daft! Gorgeous, but daft.

"I ain't even kidding right..."

"OK, seriously right..." It's true, our Essex hen weekends really are second to none, we'll help you enjoy the best weekends in top hotels with some unforgettable nightlife. If you're still thinking we're 'kidding' then put GoHen to the test. Send us a brief enquiry or call us on 01225 474200 and we'll send you a no obligation, hassle-free quote to help get your Essex hen do started.
