Reasons to Visit
There are destinations that are synonymous with hen weekends, and Brighton is right there at the top of that list. Long known as a friendly city with an atmosphere to die for and phenomenal nightlife, a Brighton Hen Do doesn’t disappoint on any level. It’s been one of the most consistently popular hen do destinations since hen dos started, and for good reason. After all, where better to spend your last weekend away than in a friendly seaside paradise?
Known as the “happiest place to live in the UK”, Brighton has been welcoming day-trippers since the arrival of the railways in 1841. Given that they have been regularly welcoming short-term visitors for nearly the last two centuries, is it any surprise that a Brighton Hen Do has everything you’d ever need for a perfect weekend away with the girls? No, it’s not a surprise at all.
Where to Stay?
As a welcoming location, Brighton provides all kinds of accommodation options, from the budget to the brilliant, the sensible to the stylish, your Brighton Hen Do will find comfort and style anywhere that you choose to stay. With such a wide variety of options, whatever you are looking for can be found.
If you are looking for somewhere you can call home for the weekend in this amazing city, you are in luck. With houses, cottages and flats all being options that you can book for your perfect Brighton Hen Do, it’ll feel like a home away from home if you look into those options. Alternatively, if you are sticking to a budget, then local B&Bs, Guest Houses and chain hotels can provide you some well located accommodation at great value. There are places to stay all around the city, so whether you choose to be down on the seafront or slightly inland, wherever you stay you are guaranteed that a good time can be had just minutes away from wherever your accommodation is located.
Brighton being the entertainment centre that it is, you’ll never be short of things to do. Brighton is famous for being a great place to shop, having lovely beaches you can relax on (depending on the great British weather of course) and of course you could visit the famous pier. This really sets Brighton apart as being an absolutely amazing destination for your hen weekend, and that’s even before we look at the activities we can arrange for you - we offer over ninety of them (at the time of writing), so your Brighton Hen Do won’t be short of options when you are choosing what to get up to!
I know what you are thinking though, you are wondering what activities we recommend? What are the most popular? What do the best Brighton Hen Dos choose to do when they are visiting this world famous city?
It’s a tough question to answer, because everyone wants to do something that suits their own tastes, so every Brighton Hen Do that we arrange is unique and tailor made to suit the group that are travelling. However, I can share with you the three activities that are most commonly added to a Brighton Hen Do.
- Cocktail Making – No surprise here! One of the most popular Brighton hen do activities is one of the most popular activities at hen dos around the country, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Cocktail Making just has that perfect combination of entertainment, competition and drinking that makes it a perfect part of any hen do.
- Old School Sports Day – This is one of those activities that people book because they think it’ll be a laugh (which it is), but no-one can predict how competitive everyone will get once you are there! A way to relive your old “School sports day” memories, you’ll be competing in the sack race, egg and spoon race, and even throwing some beanbags around, just like old times
- Escape Rooms – A newer activity, but one that has ratcheted up in popularity over the last few years, you’ll find yourself trapped with the girls in a themed room where you have to solve a selection of puzzles to escape before the time runs out – do you have the skills needed to survive?
As you approach the evenings of your Brighton Hen Do, you’ll want to choose where you are going to spend your nights out, and believe me, you’ll find yourselves spoilt for choice! There are obviously a huge number of friendly bars, pubs and clubs throughout the city – offering you great drinks, great company and a great time in general.
Maybe you want something a bit more organised or a bit more special on one of your Brighton Hen Do nights out? The good news there is that this city has a couple of evening activities that are always very popular with a Brighton Hen Do. The first is an evening of cabaret, where you’ll get to enjoy some beautiful views of absolutely amazing male dancers showing you everything that they can do and everything that they’ve got – what better way to spend a few hours? The other popular option in Brighton is a Burlesque night, where you can enjoy some cocktails and some amazing food while seeing some of the most beautiful dancing you’ve ever seen.
