Why Bristol is perfect for your hen do!


We love Bristol. Obviously you might think we’re saying this because we live here but the reason we live here is because we love it! 

What’s so great about Bristol you ask? WELL, it has been voted both the kindest and coolest city in the UK, and it has everything you could ever want for a weekend away:


The nightlife scene in Bristol is incredible. Bars, pubs, comedy night, nightclubs, live music venues, dancing, festivals – the list goes on. There is genuinely something going on every night of the week but the weekends are obviously the best. There is something to cater for everyone’s tastes in various areas across the city which is why it is such a perfect hen do destination. Not only that but it’s easy to get around too – taxis and Ubers are frequent and affordable. In the summer there is a festival pretty much every weekend and the city comes alive even more. And not forgetting drinks by the river as the sun sets! Trust us you cannot beat it!

Bristol has become one of the hubs of the UK for dining out over the last few years. You can find every type of cuisine across the city and we especially love the fact that the city caters SO well for vegetarians and vegans. People consider London the cuisine capital of the UK but Bristol is close second AND more affordable than the big smoke.

Our pick for dinner would be Root!

Arts and crafts

If you’re interested in a more arty break with your girls, then Bristol is definitely the place to be. Did you know you can go on a guided art tour of Banksy’s artwork across the city? Throw in some bars and you have the perfect Saturday! There are plenty of other arts and crafts activities we can book for you as well – sash making, life drawing classes, take your pick!

Wellbeing hen

Fancy something a bit more active? Bristol has a tonne of options for sporting activities including paddleboarding on the river. Centrally located and easy to get to, you and your gang can go stand up paddleboarding or even do SUP yoga! The water is calm and clean and the views are fantastic. This is a wonderfully memorable activity to do on a hen do! Want something active but not quite so outdoors? Bristol is absolutely full of wonderful yoga classes.

Yuup is perfect to find these activities too!

Escape to the countryside

Last but not least it is worth pointing out that whilst Bristol is a city, it’s also surrounded by some surreal British countryside. If you fancy staying somewhere or doing an activity a little further out of town then it is incredibly easy to get in and out of Bristol if you want to.

We recommend a stay at Nature’s Spectacular! You can stay as a small group or you can hire out the whole place!
