Swansea might be only the 2nd largest city in Wales and the 27th largest in the UK but this is a city that can hold its head high in any company and with comfy and inviting hotels, fantastic hen party activities and a fantastic nightlife make for a perfect hen party that is second to none.
The green, green grass of home is perfect place to spend some quality time and you don't need to be a big spender, ok, we're mixing our Welsh singing metaphors (sorry Sir Tom and Dame Shirley) but when girls just wanna have fun (Cyndi Lauper?!? Ok we'll stop now) Swansea offers so much.
Girl Power in the Gower
Situated in the Gower Peninsular on the edge of the Mumbles in an area known locally as the Welsh Riviera any bride on her Swansea hen weekend will find miles and miles of sandy beaches, stunning cliffs and coves overlooking the Bristol Channel. For intrepid hens in need of “Girl Power” the beautiful scenery on the outskirts of Swansea offer the perfect hen playground with some fantastical activities.
But if you want something a little less strenuous and altogether more relaxed you can try your hand at,
SMS Treasure Hunt
Recording Studio Session
The city is big enough to party in without getting lost so you won't need to pay for cabs to search out the biggest clubs as they are all conveniently located in one central area.
Looking After No1
We often get asked what is the most important aspect of a hen weekend and our honest answer is pleasing the bride-to-be. It's her big weekend but more than that, this is finally a chance to have a break with her best friends after weeks of (often stressful) wedding planning. So don't try and please everyone, if you book a weekend that you know the guest of honour will love then most of her like-minded friends are bound to enjoy it to. That's why a Swansea hen weekend is a great choice as there is something to suit any taste, crazy adventure activities, great hotels, nice restaurants, a big nightlife all shared with her best gal pals.
Party Without Breaking the Bank
Setting the budget for any hen party is always a tricky business, not everyone in the Bride-to-be's party will necessarily have the same amount of money available to party with so getting the budget to suit everyone is a tricky business. The good news is at GoHen we've been planning hen weekends in Swansea since 2002 and are on hand to help you.
We have been working with many of our suppliers for over a decade which means they offer us fantastic rates as long standing customers, that means we can pass these savings on to you to help get you the best deals possible.
“Sounds a bit too good to be true.” That's an understandable thought (we're often sceptical about deals when we're shopping) but here's how it works;
If we give you the best weekend that you'll be talking about for years then you'll book with GoHen again, not only that but you'll tell your friends about us. 96% of hen parties say they would use GoHen again so we know we're doing something right, having that many fantastically happy hen parties firstly let's us know we're doing our job well, secondly it means they'll book with us again. So getting you the best prices really is good financial planning in our eyes.
When Should We Plan A Swansea Hen Weekend?
Well there's no denying the fact that Wales does have a reputation for a spot of rain now and again (mostly from Welsh people) however it really isn't as bad as they might let on. In fact Southern Wales including Swansea sits on the Bristol Channel overlooking Somerset and sees some fantastic weather in the summer months.
Getting To Swansea
Swansea is easily accessible by road or rail with direct trains from London Paddington. If you're driving from England there is a strong chance you’ll travel on the M4 and the Severn Bridge which does levy a toll change.
