Hen Party Cardiff
Cardiff Hen Weekend, Capital of Wales…
For your Hen party Cardiff, why not head to the sixth best shopping destination in Britain, packed full of girl-friendly goodies and jammily good times. Following a magical revamp and facelift, Cardiff has become a highly popular venue for a hen party weekend. The Bay is now a modern and chic place to chill, eat and party, while enjoying the glorious views out across the water. Cardiff’s a great place to start your hen do off with a distinctive and glamorous bang!
Luxurious Cardiff Hen Weekend
If you’re looking for a generous dollop of luxury in your hen weekend, then you’ve come to the right place. Cardiff has several gorgeous spas to choose from, where you can recharge your batteries before your party night out. You can laze pool-side with your fellow hens, bubble yourself chilled in the Jacuzzi, steam yourself beautiful in the sauna or get smothered in mud, but in a good way. It’s the perfect antidote to your Cardiff hen night shenanigans later on. Just as Shakespeare never said “massage is the food of life” and “to spa, perchance to dream”.
Hungry Cardiff Hen Night
After all that exercise, you’re probably starving. Step over then to St David’s, where you’ll find the restaurant quarter, Eastside. As you might now expect from Cardiff, the hungry hen party is well catered for over two floors, with variety from American Diner to Italian, Japanese to classic comfort food and all your favourite cafes.
Back outside, Mill Lane is home to even more places to tantalise hens’ tastebuds. There’s a smorgasbord of eateries and bars here – from South American to Italian, Indian and just around the corner you can enjoy, Spanish, Thai and Portuguese.
Peppered throughout the streets between the castle and the train station and down by Cardiff bay, there’s a wide array of restaurants and cafes too. It’s nice to see that traditional Welsh cuisine is making a comeback here, with some restaurants offering hen parties home-grown delicacies made with leeks, lamb, cheeses, crab, seaweed and cockles.
Enough delicious fare to satisfy even the hungriest Hen party Cardiff on a weekend break!
Thrill Seeking Cardiff Hen Do
For hens with a thirst for adrenaline, Cardiff has a wide variety of Hen weekend activities to choose from. In fact, there’s something to suit every active hen’s desires. You can set your pulse racing with some seriously loopy high ropes challenges, throw yourself into the spray and learn to surf, get thoroughly wet white-water rafting or enjoy the thrills, spills and quite possibly screaming of paintball. And that’s just for starters. Cardiff is geographically well-placed to access hills, mountains, coast and rivers, all within 30 minutes or so of the capital. So, active hens can thrill seek here to their hearts’ content.
Shopping Cardiff Hen Party
Cardiff certainly delivers for hens who are looking to spend a little time spending some money!
With no less than six iconic Edwardian and Victorian shopping arcades, you will be spoiled for choice. Wander through the variety of shops in the Castle Quarter and Morgan Quarter to enjoy boutique shopping at its best.
For designer stores and the big high street brands, head to St David’s. Quite frankly, it’s huge! There’s 1.4 million square feet of retail space to explore. That’s a whole lot of shoes!
Mixing it up Hen
Cocktails are never out of fashion. But why stick to just supping them, when you can get involved and make your own?! Several venues in Cardiff offer the chance for hen parties to learn from a master mixologist. With a dash of this and a shake of that, you’ll soon be muddling your own Mojitos and crafting your very own Cosmopolitans. Then you can get on with the delicious business of quaffing them.
Cardiff Hen Party Time
Cardiff hen nights are nothing short of fabulous. There’s a rocking array of live music venues, vibrant clubs, comedy venues and of course the arena and Millennium Stadium, where you’ll find major gigs and shows. There’s certainly something to entertain every hen party into the wee small hours.
St Mary Street and Mill Lane are the main destinations and just round the corner on Womanby Street is the legendary Clwb Ifor Bach.
If all those reality shows have made you want to sing, or maybe scream, there are some great karaoke venues too. Perfect for the budding Shirley Basseys or Cerys Matthews among you!
While you’re out and about, you could spot Dr Who being filmed, and if you’re very lucky, he might just show you his sonic screwdriver. Now what Cardiff Hen party could resist that?!
