Where to Drink in Southampton
The port is the perfect place to get your hen antics started off whilst the sun's still out. You'll find mostly traditional pubs with outdoor seating (or quirky interiors if the weather ain't great!). Ocean Village is a glorious place to enjoy views and booze! You'll find some swanky seating to watch the boats come and go.
Oxford Street is another great area to explore and perfect for a mini bar crawl! The Parisian style canopies come out and the wicker furniture gives us seriously Mediterranean vibes. When the sun's shining, you'll think you're on the continent!
The Cultural Quarter up in the city centre is ideal for party starting or bringing the evening to an end. It's an energetic and luxe hangout on weekends where all the locals band together with visitors to celebrate in style.
Sights & Sounds
Why wouldn't you take the most beautiful animals Britain's ever seen and put them all in one place for the public to appreciate? Southampton has, and now it's your turn to find out where the wild things are. The New Forest Wildlife Park has collected a wide range of indigenous species like wolves, wildcats and bison for you to admire. This is the perfect way to clear your heads after a big night out and any animal-loving bride-to-be is going to feel right at home here!
Southampton's trendsetters and fashionistas all head to Junk for a great night out. This club has been refurbished recently, and it's hosted some big names like Calvin Harris, Professor Green, Dizzee Rascal and Zane Lowe. If you're after an unforgettable night out for the nearly wed, this is it.
Club 4 is funky, fun, and nobody's going to judge your dancing here! It's a hen party's paradise and whether you're enjoying cheesy pop hits or current chart successes, you're guaranteed a fabulous time.
Best Shopping Spots
Fashion in Southampton is all about looking as good as you possibly can without looking like you've put any effort into it. Sounds difficult right? But a quick look through some of the city's best vintage stores will quickly solve the problem, as you'll find bargain buys here that'll have even the hippest of seaside fashionistas lowering their sunglasses to have a good look at your chic style.
Beatnik Emporium - On first glance, this bijou boutique looks like a bit of jumble sale. But step inside and you'll discover that what seems like a mess is actually the most eclectic collection of retro bargains you'll find with threads that range from the stylishly subtle to the flagrantly colourful!
Where? 202 Above Bar Street, SO14 7DW
Harper and Lewis - This little shop tucked away in the West Quay shopping centre is a real gem. You'll see seriously stylish threads that range from casual tees to stunning dresses that'll turn heads when you're back home...and all for a bargain price!
Where? West Quay, Harbour Parade SO15 1QE
Getting Around Southampton
This hugely up and coming seaside city has an excellent travel network, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that you won't have to haul all those bags back to your accommodation on foot! Make the most of the bus services, ferries and (even though you probably won't need to) hovercraft with a SolentGo card. They've got an app too, if you don't fancy making the space in your purse!
Southampton is full of hen party activities perfect your big weekend. Looking to get hands on? Cocktail Mixing or Chocolate and Wine Tasting are all fabulous events that usually end up in a fair few girly giggles. If your hens are excitable and full of energy you'll all love our Grease, Glee and Dirty Dancing workshops. Of course, when you're this close to the sea there's plenty of Watersports fun to be had and a Whitewater Rib ride usually provides great thrills and unforgettable memories. See all our hen day activities...
Southampton doesn't do 'quiet nights in', this town is positively rocking in the evening and there's plenty of hen party mischief to be getting involved with. Visiting a restaurant is always a good way to kick the night off before visiting a few Pubs and Bars. Once everybody's relatively merry, it'll be time to make the most of our Guestlist Nightclubbing or if you're feeling lucky, why don't you hit the Casino? See all our nightlife options...
It's time for a hen party in Southampton!
Classy, steeped in culture and with an incredible appetite for entertainment, the upbeat quays bring a fantastic fusion of the trendy and traditional to a hen weekend in Southampton. The city's got history. It's got fun-filled days. It's got a glitzy marina, one of the best shopping scenes in the country and it even managed to bag the best spot on the south for soaking up the rays! And with a young crowd at its core and hundreds of years of thirsty mariners passing through its sparkling waters, the vibrant nightlife is almost as famous as the city itself! In short girls, a Southampton hen do is the bash that's got it all!
Why choose a Southampton hen party?
From classy to cheeky, modern to medieval and action-packed to utterly laid-back, Europe's favourite port brings a wonderful blend to your hen do. The balmy coastal spot, with the picturesque New Forest on one side, the English Channel on the other, and a vibrant party town at its core, really does offer something for everyone. And with comfy 2* stays to luxury 4* indulgence and over 50 fantastic activities to fill your sunny days and nights, a hen do with GoHen could well be the pre-wedding party of the year!
What can a Southampton hen do?
Whatever takes your fancy! We all know variety is the spice of life - and between the muddy tracks and breathtaking scenery of the New Forest, the sparkling waters of the Solent (dip or dunk, it's up to you!) and the lively city centre fit to bursting with boutiques and bistros, Southampton can be as easy going, action packed or glitzy and glam as you like!
If last night's saucy moves and fruity cocktails have left you with more than just memories of a great night out, why not take to the waves and banish that hangover with a blast of salty sea air?! Taking to the wheel of a world-class speed boat, or conquering the waves with a turn on the wakeboard or jet-ski is sure to blow away the cobwebs and get pulses racing! For a gentler way to refresh and recharge, a session in the sauna or heavenly massage will have you feeling fab in no time and if its giggles and feel-good fun you're after then getting into the groove at a top dance session could be the perfect way to kick-start your weekend!
Shop till you drop in Southampton...
The city might be most famous for waving a final goodbye to that ship (and one floppy-haired Mr DiCaprio), but with a multitude of chic stores and vintage boutiques lining its bustling streets, Southampton is a dream destination for modern-day hens keen to kick off those heels and hit the shops running!
The heart of the city plays host to the phenomenal West Quay Centre, where you'll the have the choice of more than 100 well-known stores and popular eateries, not to mention a fantastic selection of the big fashion brands we all know and love - perfect to treat yourself to a gift (or two) and plan the night's adventures over a frothy cappuccino! Above Bar Street and The Marlands Centre are great alternatives for a mix of budget, boutique and big brands, and Bedford Place and Oxford Street have a great olde worlde vibe running through the chic boutiques and cafés that line the pavements. Great for soaking up a bit of the city's historic atmosphere and bagging a reminder of your fab weekend in the south!
When's the best time for a Southampton hen party?
With its rich heritage, pulsating venues, enviable location, incredible shopping and packed calendar of events - phew! - there's always something going on in Southampton! Whisk the girls to West Quay and treat yourselves at the January sales, or party in the park at May's AccessFest (it's for charidee ladies!). Sample some fine local refreshments at the annual summer Beer Fest, and join the whole of the partying south for an open air mega-mix at June's Power in the Park! The uber-trendy and uber-stylish boat-show sails into shore in September and Above Bar precinct has a distinctly European and 'more mulled wine please' flavour when the Christmas market works its festive magic in December.
