Known for being one of the best party destinations, Bristol makes the perfect location for a hen do. Home to lively nights out, fun daytime activities and some stunning sights – it really has got a lot going for it. That’s not all either as here we’ve pulled together our top reasons for choosing a hen party in Bristol. 

There are plenty of places to drink, dance and party

Whether you’re looking for a bottomless brunch, a wild night out or some quiet drinks in the pub, Bristol has got plenty of options for them all. For traditional pubs with benches lining the cobbled streets, look no further than King Street. It’s the perfect spot to grab a drink, is near the river, and only a 30-second walk from the city centre. 

Stokes Croft is another great place to head to for the evening – you’ll find cool beer gardens and graffiti-covered cocktail bars alongside independent bars. If you’re looking for bigger name bars and clubs, then head to Harbourside – it’s full of highly recommended bars, restaurants, clubs and much more – with places for quick snacks, lots of drinking and even a fancy three course meal. And, it’s really pretty – making it the perfect spot for your Insta story. 

There are plenty of things to see and do

One of the best ways to sweat out your hangover would be to head to Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol’s iconic landmark. It only takes around 10 minutes to walk across – but it gives you a reason to get your trainers on and go for a walk. It has amazing views too – and there’s also a hill nearby that you can walk up to take pictures. 

There’s also Bristol Zoo for a day out – it’s one of the best in the country, so worth visiting. From gorillas, to fish, to tortoises – they’ve got plenty to see. And if you can face returning back to where you went last night, Harbourside is a top spot for a stroll and is filled with cafés and bars serving great food and drink (if you can hack another drink). 

You can head to the countryside while you’re there

If you love the countryside, or just want to head to the country to work up an appetite for all the food and drink you’ll consume, then rest assured a hen weekend in Bristol won’t disappoint. In fact, you’re surrounded by luscious fields and landscapes. And, there are plenty of traditional pubs to rest your weary legs in for the ultimate hen party afternoon. 

Book yourself a countryside walk and gourmet champagne picnic package for a memorable day out. You’ll be met by a walking guide for a meandering adventure along the river before stopping for tea, coffee and cake. Then, you’ll tackle the hills where you’ll find some of the best views in the Southwest and even find time to stop for a boozy picnic. Champagne and views – what more could you want?

There’s a great transport system

To save you booking 5,000 Ubers or walking 2,873 miles in your heels – Bristol has great transport links around the city. Or, if you’ve ditched the heels and chosen trainers (or even if you keep the heels) – the city centre is small enough to navigate on foot too! Just think of all the steps you’ll get in – we reckon you’ll definitely have earned yourself another Espresso Martini!

If you’re sold on Bristol – then we’ve found you the perfect house for your stay, and it has enough room for up to 14 hens. It’s got a living room big enough for even the wildest drinking games. And, the bathrooms all have stylish deep-soak tubs that will revive even the worst hangovers. The garden is a sun-trap – so the perfect location for pre-drinks, morning coffee or even a bit of sunbathing. And, close by, you’ll find independent cafes and shops – and it’s just a quick taxi ride to Bristol and Bath for indoor and outdoor activities and nights out.
