From a pier packed with entertainment to plenty of restaurants and bars to keep you occupied, it’s certainly worth a visit – even just for the day. 

Camber Sands

Another coastal town that’s got to be on your list is Camber Sands. Again, whether you choose to stay the night or simply fancy a day trip, it’s definitely worth it. Why not pack a prosecco lunch and enjoy on the beach or head there in the evening for a sunset BBQ?

Chichester

Whether you’re interested in arts or culture, heritage, walking or cycling there is plenty for you to see and do – and a vast range of bars, restaurants and nightlife to keep you busy.

As mentioned above, if you’re looking for a night out that you won’t exactly remember (thanks alcohol) but certainly won’t forget, it’s got to be Brighton.

Hen Party Wine Tasting

BEST FOR THOSE WHO PRETEND THEY’RE SOPHISTICATED

Sure if you wandered into a bar at 10am and ordered a bottle of your fave shiraz you’d get a few funny looks but organise a classy wine tasting session and it’s a completely different story. There’s hundreds of venues up and down the country or if you want to get truly sozzled, why not host your very own wine tasting experience at home?

DIY Wine & Cheese Tasting

BEST FOR PRETENDING YOU’RE SOPHISTICATED 

Ladies, what’s the best thing about the countryside?! The amount of space for vineyards!! Get dressed up and wander around the crops, taking in the scenes and indulging in a little tasting. Oh, who are we kidding? Vineyard tours are the best way to get a little tipsy while professing your non-existent wine knowledge. Plus, the gift shop is our kind of shop…

A craft day

BEST FOR GETTING CREATIVE AND MAKING A LITTLE KEEPSAKE

Your hen party is a great excuse for getting all the girls together, and some you might not have seen for yonks. So instead of getting drunk (that can happen later) why not start the weekend off in a calmer way? From fascinator-making to flower crown designing, The Crafty Hen will be loved by all your guests.

A night in with a private chef

BEST FOR FEELING LIKE A CELEB

A hen weekend in Sussex might not have you out until 4am doing vodka shots but it doesn’t have to be boring. Grab all your friends, set up a cocktail bar in the comfort of your hen party holiday home and welcome your very own private chef into the dining room. Not only will they create a delicious meal but often tidying the dining table afterward is included – it’s a win-win! This must be what it’s like to be famous, right?!

Pre-theatre cocktails and a musical

BEST FOR THE WANNABE ACTRESSES
Daytime performances are not only really convenient but there’s also bundles of pre-theatre meal deals just waiting to be snapped up. A great hen party activity for when the weather’s not on your side, simply book in advance or turn up to the box office on the day and see what tickets they’ve got left.

Brighton Central Townhouse & Pop-up Cocktail Bar

BEST FOR THOSE WHO PREFER TO STAY IN
Britain’s best-loved seaside is perfect for a hen party and has everything to suit a range of budgets, styles, ages and tastes. Plus, who needs to go out on a Friday night when you can bring the party inside. Hire a big house, arrange your very own pamper party or Brighton life drawing class, and bring the cocktail bar to your accommodation. Looking to head somewhere else?
