Overview of Hen weekends in Bournemouth
Over the past couple of years, Bournemouth has done a very good job of trying to knock Brighton off its perch - or at least join it as the unofficial home of the hen party. If there is one thing that will sway you towards Bournemouth in the battle of the two seaside queens for hen party supremacy, it's the sandy beach. Bournemouth is the closest you'll get to being abroad in the UK - oh, and it's home to some lovely, bronzed surfers too...
But a hen party in Bournemouth is well worth the trip down to the South coast for more than just that reason - it is filled to the brim with places to spend one of the most important nights out with your closest friends. Try Lola Lo, the Tiki Bar which will put you in your own little paradise.
When you were younger you might remember only knowing Bournemouth as that city where ‘old’ people spent their days. Further before that Bournemouth was barren and used almost only by smugglers. Luckily for all of us it’s picked up a whole lot and is now driven by fun-filled coastal life, its university and a great night out… Phew!
It’s not possible to cram Bournemouth’s booming nightlife in to a single paragraph but we’ll try and give you a taste of some of the best bits. Lola Lo Tiki Bar will place you and your friends in your very own paradise (you will be anyway), Alika brings the glamour to the seaside and V Bournemouth will keep you and your girls dancing right up to the wedding!
The best thing about staging a hen weekend in Bournemouth is that you’ll never find yourself stuck for something to do. You can spend countless hours laying & catching the rays on the beach or strolling around the city - and if the typical British weather is working against you, you can beat the rain by hitting the bars, shops or heading to the BIC, Pavilion or Pier Theatres. Then you have the activities we lay on here that include everything from burlesque experiences to surfing lessons for those women searching for something a little more wild!
Bournemouth's Famous For
The sandy beach, Bruce Forsyth, Morecambe & Wise, surfer dudes and once again – the beach!
Like most seaside cities, Bournemouth is small enough to walk around but we know how it is – that’s fine for the day but what about the night when you’re dressed up and wearing your favourite heels? Walking far doesn’t cut it, so it’s best to club together and get a taxi (like always) or make use of the regular buses.
