If you’re a lucky bride-to-be looking forward to your hen do, then you’ll know that Swansea is a perfect option for a brilliant boozy weekend away with your favourite girls. We’ve all heard of the alcohol-fuelled nights out on famous Wind Street and beyond – perfect for letting your hair down in style before your big day.
However, what about hens who want something a little classier? Can you find chic, stylish hen night ideas in Swansea? We think so. Here are some hip alternatives for sophisticated hens:
Still life painting
OK, so you don’t want the booze-fuelled mayhem of wind street, but that doesn’t mean you should forsake another time-honoured tradition of hen parties: gawking at the naked male form.
Still life painting is a perfect hen party activity – allowing you to admire and ogle lithe male models while also enjoying how your fellow hens lack a certain illustrative skill.
We’re not ones to make generalisations, but ladies love cocktails. There’s nothing better than finding out how to make a magical martini, margarita or mimosa with your favourite girls. And if you have to taste them too, well that’s the price all hens must pay.
We all know that the myth of dodgy female drivers is one of mankind’s most pernicious fabrications. So why not challenge that particular falsehood by getting you and your girls down to the racetrack? You can race against each other over 30 minutes or three hours – perfect for those ladies who are just as competitive as the men.
Are you and your girls the adrenaline-seeking types? Whether you want to surf, kayak, gorge walk or abseil, you’ll be able to around Swansea. Exciting days out and boot camps like this are perfect for getting your blood really flowing and seeing your best friends in situations you’d never seen before! Go Ape, just outside Swansea, is a particular highlight with hens who visit the Dragon Hotel – allowing you to indulge your inner Tarzan (well, Jane) and swing from treetops.
Laugh the night away
Comedy is the new rock n roll, they say. So why not indulge in a spot of side-splitting fun on your hen do? After all, there’s nothing that brings people together quite like a good laugh. Britain’s biggest comedians are always visiting Swansea on their tours, so check out Ents24 for a list of what’s happening in south west Wales.
