Cardiff wasn't always this amazing, but it's basically the place to be right now - with a constantly buzzing atmosphere, easy access to the great outdoors, and a thriving pub scene, Cardiff is a massive sleeper hit on the hen do scene. On a Cardiff hen do, you can have it all: shopping and relaxation, sport in and out of the water, down-to-earth pubs, and classy nightclubs. It's easy to get to, it's easy to navigate, and it's easy to have the time of your life there thanks to classic Welsh hospitality and a rejuvenated urban centre, the perfect place for a hen weekend. Cardiff is always bustling with enthusiastic partygoers out to enjoy themselves on the town, so join the fun! If you are too spoilt for choice, why not opt for one of our Cardiff hen party packages?
Cardiff used to be an industrial city, but it has changed massively in the last decade, and is fast becoming one of the UK's hot tourist destinations. The city is super green, with the greenest space per capita in the UK, and there are 5 castles just within the incredibly walk-able city centre. The economy was historically based on coal (and the first million-pound cheque ever was written here at the Coal Exchange), but huge investment in the city during the '90s has changed what was once considered a dour city into a lively, vibrant waterfront.
The city itself is a great place to spend a day soaking up culture, hitting up the shops, and pampering yourself. You can explore the city's great sights, catch a match at the Millennium Stadium or a show at the Millennium Centre, visit the National History Museum for a taste of Welsh culture, or head to the Dr. Who Experience for an out-of-this world treat. Take the hike along Cardiff Bay Barrage for amazing scenery and hangout at the Mermaid Quay for some local flavour. Live out your high-fashion fantasy at the Victorian and Edwardian Arcades, or search out some serious steals at Cardiff's massive indoor flea market. Then, hard work done, time for the spa!
If your crew loves to run around and get dirty, all the classic hen activities are available here, from paintballing and quad-biking to go-karting and rifle practice. Since you're in Wales, though, why not experience the special brand of crazy that is Welsh outdoor adventures? White water tubing, gorge scrambling, canyoning, caving, and coasteering are all possible in this rough, gorgeous landscape. You'll be climbing, jumping, swimming, and hiking through caves along the coast, up the cliffs, and into areas that are otherwise inaccessible - all with a certified guide, of course.
It's when the night falls, however, that Cardiff lights up and becomes this city that people are raving about. The atmosphere takes off - clubs and pubs are full and fun, shows are great (from comedy to circus), and the food is world-class. With a group of cheeky butlers to serve you drinks and see to your every whim, primp and prep yourselves for a wild night out. You can go for wine, tequila, or bourbon tasting, or just opt for a classic bar crawl before you strut it out as a VIP at the hottest clubs in Cardiff. If all that isn't enough, head to the special Saturday male strip show - strippers aren't just for men, after all! Be sure to photograph the hen with the strip-squad for some serious groom-teasing later on…
