Our guide to help plan the perfect hen do in Brighton
In recent years, Brighton has quickly grown to become one of the most culturally diverse cities in England, and the go-to spot for hosting a wild hen weekend. However, with so much to do and so many activities to choose from, planning a hen do in Brighton can be a tricky and confusing job.
But don’t worry, Brighton Retreats has you covered! We know the in’s and out’s of this exciting city and can help you plan the ultimate time away for you and your friends. Let’s get stuck in.
During the day
Hen do’s in Brighton are such much fun, simply because there is so much to do both during the day and at night. However, to get yourself ready for the wild night ahead, our top recommendation is to pick one of the following activities. They are a little more chilled out and will help everyone in the group feel relaxed and pampered before the night’s antics.
British Airways i360 (including an option for Afternoon Tea!)
Go champagne tasting
Or maybe a gin session?
Head off for a spa day
A cheeky life drawing class
Go on a treasure hunt (Yes, these are a real thing, just Google it!)
If you’re looking to spice things up, then there are certainly plenty of alternatives to choose from. Here are some of our favourites:
Outdoor survival weekend
Hire a Butler in the Buff
Dirty Dancing group
By day, Brighton seems like a typical seaside town, filled with ice cream stands, arcades and happy families enjoying the day out. But by night, Brighton really comes alive. There are a vast array of exciting pubs and clubs. Coupled with the mix of cultures and large LGBTQ community, there are places for every group to enjoy. Here are some of our best ideas on how to spend the night.
Tackle a bar crawl, or better yet, a cocktail bar crawl
Book a booth at PRYZM
Head to Shooshh
Vodka Revolution is where it's at
Head out for some karaoke
Club revenge - one of Brighton’s leading gay clubs
Quick Contact Me
Where to stay
Another wonderful thing about Brighton is that almost all of the clubs and bars are located near to the seafront. Meaning that getting to and from each of your destinations is a breeze. For this reason, you also want to try and find a hotel or apartment that is close to this area. Of course, everyone else hosting a hen do in Brighton has the same idea.
But luckily for you, we have you covered. We rent out a large property in Brighton that we call Brighton Bedrock, which is perfect for large groups. It can hold up to 10 people, and all rooms have been furnished to a very high standard, with modern fittings throughout.
Where is there to eat?
Simply put, Brighton has it all! If it’s a nice warm Summer’s day, then you’re best off heading to one of the restaurants situated on the seafront and to the right of the pier. There is a whole array of fine food on offer. All of which can be enjoyed with a glass of something bubbly whilst you watch the sunset. Alternatively, Brighton houses a whole host of chic, independent restaurants such as The Gingerman and 64 Degrees.
The best way to find a nice spot is to head off in the direction of Chill Hill Shopping Centre and get lost amidst the myriad of lanes. You’ll find these delightful spots hidden amongst an assortment of small shops and cafes. Or, if you want to plan your meal ahead of time, here’s a list of some of Brighton’s best places to eat.
