Overview of Hen weekends in Cardiff
Cardiff is a great place to consider for your hen do, with the nightlife being central to the city and with plenty to see and do during the day... that is, if you and your girls can drag yourself out of bed with that hangover!
If you manage it though then you’ll be pleased to know that Cardiff and shopping also go hand in hand, which is one of the many reasons the Welsh capital is such an attractive hen weekend destination. You’ll find St. David’s Centre in Cardiff too, which is widely considered to be one of the UK’s largest shopping centres. Couple this with relaxing spa packages like this and you're on to a winner!
Proclaimed the capital of Wales in 1955, Cardiff has done a mighty fine job of being the country’s capital. Extensive developments have turned Cardiff into a cultural centre, with plenty of new and old architecture adding to the city’s charm. The Wales Millennium Centre looks fantastic and Cardiff Castle still looks as imposing as it always has. Cardiff will once again be the European City of Sport in 2014.
Cardiff’s nightlife is wide and varied, with plenty of clubs and live music venues dotted around the city. You’ll find familiar names and chains, along with a bevy of brilliant local bars and clubs too. St. Mary Street is where you’ll find most of the popular clubs and bars, and for live music you’ll want Greyfriars Road. The Retro club is great if you want to get, well retro! As with most student cities and towns, Cardiff has a lot going on, all the time. Make the most of this on your hen weekend in Cardiff.
If you’re one for sightseeing and architecture then you must be sure to visit the Cardiff Bay, where you’ll find all manner of new and refurbished buildings, including the Norwegian Church, the Wales Millennium Centre and Mermaid Quay, where you can find a place to grab a bite to eat.

Getting around Cardiff during the day is best done by bus. The city’s bus routes and network offer regular and frequent buses to all corners of the city. You can look up timetables and routes online which can help save time planning a journey or just getting an idea of the areas you want to explore. Come night time you will probably want to use a local taxi firm to get around, especially if you stay a few miles from the city centre.
What our customers say...
Fab weekend in Cardiff
Hen Heaven was really helpful in choosing and organising our hen weekend. The hotel was perfect location, central Cardiff right next to train station.
The town was walking distance 5 mins from the shopping in day and clubs in the evening.
Tiger Tiger was a great venue, food was good then the club upstairs.
Overall was great weekend, would recommend.

FUN, EASY, HELPFUL!!
I have just had my hen do in Cardiff which was the best weekend of my life. (well until the wedding!!)
I am so glad I booked through Hen Heaven. I choose the cocktail making package and two nights in cardiff. I didnt want to do two nights out heavy partying (not as hardcore as i used to be) so Hen Heaven arranged for us to have a meal on the Friday evening instead.
The hotel, resturant, club, and activity was right uo my street.... it was like Hen Heaven knew my likes!!
I would definatly use Hen Heaven again and would recommend them. The were very helpful and responded to my emails very quickly. (I did send a few emails as well!!)
Thank you for a lovely hen party. My 'chicks' have all said how they had an amazing weekend (especially the alcohol at the cocktail making!)
