Bournemouth Hen Weekend Guide
Chances are that you may not have considered Bournemouth for your hen weekend, thinking it to be a Mecca for the blue-rinse brigade, rather than a South Coast centre for hard core fun loving partying hens! . But Bournemouth has been reinventing itself over the last few years and is now one of THE top destinations for hen dos, thanks to its buzzing nightlife, shops, spas and restaurants.
Bournemouth’s got history as a great place to have fun. Rich Victorian women used to head down to Bournemouth to loosen their corsets and get their ankles out for the lads in the 19th Century. And despite getting a name for being full of wrinklies (not helped by the coastal pathway called – and we’re not joking – Invalids Walk), these days it’s more like Ayia Napa without the airfare.

One of the standout features has to the beach. Proper sand and miles of it. What is it about being by the sea that puts us hens in the mood for naughty things? Perhaps it’s the lads walking around with no shirts on. Or maybe it’s the seafood? Winkles, clams, I mean, they even sound rude. Whatever it is, there’s something about the seaside that puts a big smile on every hens face.
Hoping that your hen weekend is going to get more than a little bit steamy? Bournemouth’s got loads of classy spas for you and the girls to get yourselves a good seeing to. Whether it’s a relaxing massage, a sauna or those little fishes nibbling at your toes, what girl doesn’t appreciate a bit of spa-based pampering as part of her hen weekend? Top name stores and cute markets are to be found all over the town if you wanna stock up on some merch, and if you’re looking for adventure, Bournemouth’s well set up to offer all your hens exciting group activities like clay pigeon shooting, quad biking or paintballing.
When the sun goes down, Bournemouth lights up. Cool, trendy bars will be competing for your hen night custom with happy hours, two-for-ones and a great selection of some of the sauciest cocktails. You’ll also find a vibrant gay scene, universally acclaimed cabaret shows and burlesque, as well as top notch nightclubs playing all your fave tunes from classic dance to cheesy ‘80s. What more could you ask for, girls on your hen night "extraordinaire"?

It is one of the most popular destinations in the UK for hen weekends - not a far fetched claim considering its timeless charm, classy refinement, stunning coastline and historical charm.
There are a lot of great hotels that offer good rooms at reasonable rates. Hens could try out a revitalizing massage or pamper themselves with a spa or steam bath. The shopaholics can attempt to shop till they drop in an impressive line up of stores and market places dotting the city centre.

The night times are special times on any hen party weekend. Your hen weekends would be incomplete without making a stop over at the universally acclaimed cabaret shows - a mainstay in Bournemouth, and dance away to good tunes and great cocktails.
