Officially voted as the UK’s best beach for the second year in a row, Bournemouth makes for a great hen party trip away. Boasting seven miles of coastline to explore, you won’t be surprised to hear that there’s plenty of activities in Bournemouth to do for the ultimate hen experience. 

Spend your days wandering along the historic pier, taking in the traditional seaside vibes and indulging in a little retail therapy. Peruse the award-winning sandy beaches, try your hand at a few water sports or simply relax on the beach with a champagne picnic in tow. 

In the evening, start at one of the diverse mouth-watering eateries before heading onto a live music venue or comedy club for the ultimate hen night. Take your hen do to another level with a cocktail masterclass, hire a private karaoke booth or sit down at one of the local drag shows. Some of our favourite bars in the town centre include Revolution, Smokin’ Aces and Felson’s

Don’t worry if you’re looking to blow the cobwebs away the next day either. A brisk walk along one of the Blue Flag beaches or a trip to the nearby countryside will do just the trick. Whatever your budget, age or taste, a hen party in Bournemouth really does have something for everyone. After all, there’s a reason people flock back here every year.
