Cardiff hen do guide

Make it an unforgettable weekend in Wales’ capital with Hen Heaven! For 15 years we’ve been sending girls to this vibrant and sometimes wild city (but one that’s still compact enough to get around in your heels). From the friendly locals to the endless amounts of clubs and bars, Cardiff definitely offers some of the best nightlife around. You can even take to the high seas with a Cardiff Bay cruise experience.

Outside of the fantastic nightlife, Cardiff offers some of the best shopping around. For some retail therapy St. David’s Centre is real hen heaven, a sprawling shopping centre that’s one of the biggest in the UK.

Cardiff is the perfect combination of a capital city with a small town feel. On top of that the Welsh people are super friendly, with tons of banter that will make any group feel truly welcome.

Cardiff is a great city for a night out, with a great range of bars and restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights and sensational cocktails. As the evening progresses and you consider moving onto a club you will have trouble trying to decide just where to go! The courtyard in St. Marys Street is where the main action happens, and you’ll find plenty of great bars here too.

Great if you are looking for

  • Welsh capital gets the best of all things Wales!
  • The Welsh like a drink and are well catered for, so will you be!
  • Get outside with quad-biking or clay pigeon shooting.

Getting around

Cardiff has a big central station which goes on to service the whole of Wales so getting here will be no problem. Cardiff’s a very compact city, and very pedestrianised, making getting around on foot a breeze (even in your heels). If you’re staying outside of the city centre, you might want to grab an affordable taxi though, with ranks on Wood Street, Greyfriars Road, Churchill Way, St. Mary Street and Mill Lane. As with any major urban area there are buses for those watching their purse strings which are more than adequate for getting you around the city.
As well as being a smaller city, Cardiff’s very flat, making it easy to negotiate by bike (even after a few too many wines). There’s plenty of traffic-free routes which can provide a shortcut through the city. Firms like Pedal Power can arrange bike hire for you in the city.

Cardiff has a really cool water taxi too, which runs every hour from the city centre to Cardiff Bay. This can be a really exciting way to get around to the bay where there are tons of bars and a great photo opportunity.

Tips and ideas

If you’re all about taking in some culture, you and the girls might be interested to know that there’s five different castles within Cardiff. All of which are truly stunning. It’s also a city of arcades, with a huge number of Victorian style arcades. These are packed with little shops and hidden treasures. For more high-street shopping, The Hayes is home to the St. David Shopping Centre which is bliss for any girl who loves her retail therapy.

Thanks to its location by the valleys and the beautiful Wales countryside outdoors activities are a great recommendation. You can explore the valleys and scramble over incredible rock formations with gorge walking. You will be unleashing your inner Bear Grylls! If you like your excitement to be on wheels then a quad biking experience will see you and the hens zip over the muddy land in powerful quad bikes. Be prepared to get a bit dirty but then that's all part of the fun on a Cardiff hen do!


Cardiff is without a doubt one of the most desirable destinations for a hen party, and one of the big reasons for that has to be the city’s legendary nightlife. The locals are friendly and the bars stay open til late, making it perfect for a group of girls to leap into for a truly unforgettable night.
There’s more pubs per square foot than anywhere else in Britain, which is perfect for girls who are more about a quiet pint than a mental night – but if you are of that type of hen locations like Greyfriars Road and Mill Lane are always lively til late.
If you’re heading to Cardiff and the weather looks good, the Mermaid Quay is a chilled out sector of Cardiff packed with wine bars. There aren’t many better ways to spend a few hours after the sun’s gone down but the heat’s still there.

Away from the incredible nightlife of Cardiff there’s plenty to see and do.
