Cardiff Hen Party Guide
Our Cardiff hen party guide is perfect if you’re planning a hen weekend full of unusual activities, great entertainment and experiences for the bride-to-be. Evolving from a sleepy little port town, it has emerged a hotspot for sport, culture, shopping and fun. This newly modern capital city plays host to a number of fresh and cool clubs and bars, a selection of theatres and, of course, plenty of shops.
It is no wonder then that Cardiff is now considered one of the easiest and most exciting destinations for a girly getaway, making it perfect for your hen party.
Cardiff hen party Guide – Entertainment
Follow your favourite west end musicals to Cardiff where blockbuster stage shows are regulars at the Wales Millenium Centre and New Theatre. You can even follow in the footsteps of your favourite musical characters and learn the dances from top shows such as Grease, Dirty Dancing or Chicago with a group dance class from Polestars. Not only does it guarantee fantastic fun, it’s sure to leave you feeling like your favourite dance floor diva in no time. For something really genteel, St David’s Hall is a popular place to enjoy the fabulous BBC Wales National Orchestra alongside some of the best modern and classical ballets.
Cardiff hen party Guide – Shopping
With St David’s expansion making it one of the biggest shopping centres in the UK, Cardiff is now a top shopping destination. Home to all of your favourite big name brands and department stores, you can pick up the best in designer and high street fashion all in one place. Once you’re done there, don’t forget to carry right on to the Capital Shopping Centre and the Queen’s Arcade where even more fab shops are just waiting to wow you. If your dress sense is a little more left field then don’t worry, Cardiff is home to a whole host of vintage boutiques and markets. Vintage Zizou in particular is famous for their remarkably affordable mixed range of vintage and contemporary fashion.
Cardiff hen party Guide – Eating Out
The Social at the Parc Hotel in Cardiff is the restaurant to be seen in. Award winning contemporary food is the order of the day there and you can expect traditional meals infused with modern flavour twists. With ambient lighting and sophisticated décor matching up to the beautiful food you’re in for a truly refined dinner. For an authentic Italian menu, head to Trip Advisor’s number 1 restaurant in Cardiff: Café Citta. This family run pizza joint is a staple in Cardiff; friendly, homely and with bargain quality food, it is not to be missed.
Cardiff hen party Guide – Nightlife
A good night out should always begin with cocktails. For a fun twist on this golden rule, why not try making your own with a Polestars Cocktail Making class? A two hour master class with a charming bartender will teach you everything you need to know to make (and drink) three divine cocktails each. So where to after? For true decadence, the boutique Crystal Lounge has all the luxury of a private members’ club without the snobbery. With a chic dress code and a sophisticated clientele, the Crystal Lounge should be your first stop for luxury. If you’re in the mood for something a little more light hearted Minsky’s is the place to go. With drag queen comperes and regular strip shows it’s the perfect place for a giggle over cocktails and bubbly.
Cardiff hen party Guide – R & R
For a bit of well-deserved pampering, Laguna Health and Spa should be your first stop. Find that inner peace and relax those tired feet with any of their deliciously indulgent treatment packages. Unwind in the swimming pool, steam room and sauna first before indulging in a Laguna back massage and mini facial. If that wasn’t enough, included in all their packages is a delightful light lunch to be enjoyed in their beautiful on site restaurant.
