Can't rate GoHen enough for their super help, support and service with my hen party. They gave me great confidence and any queries were answered super fast. I can't recommend it enough, absolutely brilliant!
"Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light." Never has this Swansea-born Dylan Thomas quote been more powerful than when in the context of a hen party. Swansea is a nightlife haven with bars all around to impress.
Uplands is a trendy district where craft beer is constantly on tap and cocktail lists are lengthy without the city-centre prices. It's gentrification at it's finest, and now voted one of the hippest areas in the UK!
On Wind Street (hen legends will no doubt have heard of this infamous drinking destination) you'll find Irish taverns, local-feel pubs, electric bars, themed clubs and other fancy establishments you never knew you needed in your lives. You can't hen party in Swansea without a night spent purely on Wind Street!
A visit to Swansea wouldn't be complete without a walk by the bay. There's no better way to soothe any sore heads than with a (hopefully) sunny walk as you're buffeted by the refreshing sea breeze. However, if sandy beaches aren't your thing, then Clyne Gardens is another relaxed spot where you can enjoy the company of your favourite ladies away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
Swansea's premiere nightclub Fiction is one of the funkiest clubs we've ever been to. It's where all of the city's trendsetters like to party and with two big rooms and plenty of floor-filling tunes playing all night long, the hens won't want to leave...we didn't!
Escape is always rocking - This venue is like an Ibiza super club in the middle of Swansea; it's sexy, fun, and impressively modern!
Swansea is a seriously up and coming city that's fed up with living in big-brother Cardiff's shadow. With a range of designer shops knocking about as well as the high street favourites, there's plenty of shopping fun to be had in The Quadrant. But if you head off the beaten track you'll find some delightful little shops that are well worth a rummage through!
Hobo's - Despite the unusual name, you'll leave this store looking far from homeless! With retro-chic threads that range from the subtle and stylish to the fragrantly colourful there's sure to be a bargain buy here for you.
Where? 214 Oxford Street, Swansea
Ladies, lugging your high-street shopping haul around might be a good workout, but on a hen-do? It's just too much effort! We recommend you let Swansea's excellent transport network do the hard work for you. The city has an excellent bus service courtesy of First Cymru which you can use for the price of a 1 journey, 1 day or 1 week ticket.
So what is there for an up-for-anything, go getting hen party to do in this fabulous city? Well, there's Cocktail Mixing, Life Drawing and our fantastic Recording Studio session for starters. If your bride-to-be is a real thrill-seeker then our Welsh Challenge, Coasteering and Canyoning experiences are all sure to be a big hit! See more hen activities in Swansea.
Swansea nights out are Wales' best kept secret. It's said that they're bigger than Cardiff's, that they're sexier than Bristol's and that they've got all the charm of Bath's underground clubbing scene. Start your evening with a spot of Tenpin Bowling and have a tasty meal at the Restaurant of your choice. Then you could visit a Casino if you're feeling lucky, but most hen nights aren't complete until you give the nearly-wed the VIP treatment with our Guestlist Nightclubbing. See all our nightlife options...
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.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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.
Swansea is easily accessible by road or rail with direct trains from London Paddington.
