Overview of Hen weekends in Bristol
Bristol is one of our favourite cities in the UK, what with its laid back vibe, fantastic music scene and great nightlife. It really is a top choice when it comes to picking a destination and booking your hen weekend. Because whenever we get feedback from a hen troupe that has recently visited Bristol, they’re always telling us about how they need to go back for another hen party! It’s not all about the night scene though: it’s a city with plenty of culture and the perfect place to celebrate before the bride-to-be before she becomes the bride!
Don’t worry, Bristol isn’t all bridges but it is famous for the engineering works of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the Clifton Suspension Bridge in particular. We apologise for making you yawn, but you’ll be happy to know that today its culture is based around staying relaxed, having fun and also embracing street art, so if you like an alternative sight or two, Bristol is for you.
Head to the waterfront and you’ll definitely be in for a good night. The perfect hen night setting is made even better by clubs, bars and eateries that range from the Severnshed, to Oceana, Syndicate and the absolutely insane 700-plus seater restaurant Za Za Bazaar that looks (and sounds) more like a superclub from the outside.
Deceiving for such an urban sprawl on the waterfront, but Bristol is surrounded by countryside that make it perfectly situated for any active hens that fancy taking part in some West Country Games (just wait until you see what these games actually are!) If you’re seeking something a little more chilled out, stay in the spa or go Banksy/street-art spotting!
Bristol's Famous For
Skins (if you even remember it?), Banksy, Wallace & Gromit, Creature Comforts… and even more hen comforts.
With so much to do you might think Bristol is huge, but luckily it’s all kept close by so you could even walk all the way to the waterfront if your heels aren’t hurting you too much. Not interested? Hop on a Citysightseeing bus to take in all of the points of interest and enjoy the wind in your hair from the open top (if it isn’t raining, that is!)
