Why choose a Portsmouth Hen Do?
Portsmouth is commonly referred to as the home of the British Royal Navy, and as you can imagine for a city with that reputation, it is full of entertainment to keep any group of ladies very happy indeed. Not just because of the possibility of a bunch of gentlemen in uniform (although that’s an appealing thing in itself), but also due to the fact that if it’s the home of the Navy, then the options for drinking establishments must be amazing. Which they are.
It’s not all about the nightlife though, as this city mixes culture, history, exciting activities and a welcoming atmosphere to great effect, easily making itself into one of the most popular South Coast Hen Do destinations in the country. In short, whatever your tastes may be, a Portsmouth Hen Do won’t leave you disappointed in any way.
Where to Stay?
Accommodation in Portsmouth is plentiful and gives you a lot of choice – so regardless of what you are looking for, you will definitely be able to find it here. For some Portsmouth Hen Dos, the focus is on luxury. You may want to really treat yourselves over the course of the weekend, and ensure that you are staying somewhere that is luxurious. The good news is that there are plenty of posh four star hotels that we can book you into, so that you can relax in the knowledge that you will be well pampered when you are there.
Alternatively, if you are a group who aren’t too bothered about where you stay (or are just looking to keep to a specific budget), there are a selection of hotels, B&Bs and Guest Houses that will all provide exactly what you need for your Portsmouth Hen Do.
The depth and breadth of things to do in this city is extraordinary. You could take in some of the history with a visit to the legendary warship, The Mary Rose which sank in 1545 and stayed under the sea for more than four hundred years before being raised and put on display in 1982. Continuing the nautical theme, you can have dinner or afternoon tea on one of the most famous ships in the world - HMS Victory.
These Portsmouth-specific options are great to mix in with some classic hen do activities, which are plentiful and popular with any and all Portsmouth Hen Dos. The most popular of all Portsmouth Hen Do activities is always the classic – Cocktail Making. This exciting activity will see you and the girls mixing yourselves the perfect drink in one of the most popular Portsmouth cocktail bars (and it’s available in both standard and gin-specific versions). Not only will this give you the chance to make (and drink) some of the best cocktails you’ve ever tasted, but the mixologist will also teach you some great games to play and you can even add on a great meal to the session.
For an activity with an entirely different feel, why not try booking a Pamper Day? These are great, as they allow you to personalise the activity for each of the hens – you'll all get access to a pool, a sauna and many other facilities, and you can each choose to book extra treatments if you’d like, to ensure that you make the most of your relaxing Portsmouth Hen Do.
Finally, the nightlife. We’ve already mentioned before that Portsmouth is considered the home of the Royal Navy, and that naturally translates into having an energetic and eventful nightlife throughout the city. There are a great selection of drinking establishments for you to start your night in, so whether you prefer a traditional pub or are at your happiest in a trendy bar, you’ll have no problem finding somewhere that suits your Portsmouth Hen Do to a tee. In fact, with all the nightlife being located nice and close together, you’ll find it easy to bounce around from place to place to make the most of your night out.
After your night visiting some of the best bars and pubs you’ve ever encountered, why not take the night up a notch by visiting one of Portsmouth’s popular nightclubs? With a wide selection available covering all kinds of music, it doesn’t matter whether you want to be tearing up the dancefloor to the latest house music or just be bopping around yelling the lyrics to “Dancing Queen” while a group of you dance around a handbag, there’s an option for you here. Your Portsmouth Hen Do wouldn’t be complete without you dancing right through until the sun starts to come up, before you stagger back to your accommodation desperate for a good night’s sleep.
