The responsibilities of the maid of honour and bridesmaids are ever growing and the pressure is on to deliver the ultimate hen do. With so many hens opting to go abroad, the budget for the hen do is getting bigger. Why not break the mould and go for a weekend away in the UK?

We might be a bit biased but we think Brighton and Hove is THE best hen do destination. With so much on offer, it really can cater for all – young and old, wacky or traditional, whatever you are looking for, you can find it in Brighton!

Finding hen do accommodation for you and your group, particularly if there are a lot of you, can be tricky and expensive. Being scattered across separate hotel rooms can spoil the fun, and there aren’t many holiday homes that cater for big groups; which is where Beach House Hove is the perfect option. It sleeps 33! Step one complete, now for the hen do itinerary.

Here’s some examples catering for different types of bride:

The traditional bride

Arrive at the Beach House Hove to some bubbly and canapés, before having your own pamper afternoon of manicures, hair and make-up. Then head out, fully glam, for an evening of dinner, drinking and entertainment. We love the cabaret show in Kemp Town, such a fun night out and always super value.

The next day enjoy the decadence of Afternoon Tea, there are lots of amazing places to have afternoon tea, the most famous being The Grand, Brighton. But there are a whole host of other options to suit your taste.

The adrenaline junky bride

Why not book the i360 with a twist – you’ll be abseiling down the outside!  450ft above Brighton Beach – exhilaration with a view. Then after your nerve wracking morning, head back to the Beach House and chill out in the hot tub, and order in some lunch. Perhaps have it served by your very own butlers in the buff.

If after lunch you’re still looking for a thrill why not try the Brighton Zip?

Evening entertainment, you can’t beat the challenge of the Escape Rooms, There are lots to choose from, our favourite has to be Pier Pressure: or Bewilder Box.

The next day blow the cobwebs away with a rib ride out of Brighton Marina – well you are by the sea!   or head to the Pier for a few roller coasters and obligatory donuts – watch out for the pesky seagulls though!

The healthy bride

Book your very own bootcamp weekend at the Beach House Hove, we can take care of everything from the best possible nutritional programme, making sure it all tastes great of course, to fitness classes, whether that’s a military style bootcamp or some relaxing yoga or a mix of both. If this sounds like something your bride would love, give us a call an we can get it all arranged. And don’t worry, if you want a bit of balance and mix in some drinking and dancing we can arrange that too. Maybe you just want to add a few healthy elements to your hen do before indulging, we can arrange whatever you are looking for.

The alternative bride

Want something a little different? Brighton is definitely your hen location. Start your weekend with a circus class learning the art of aerial silks, or for a more competitive hen, how about It’s a Knockout

In the evening head out for a spooky tour of the city with this fun informative walk around town:

The next day you could create your very own treasure hunt across Brighton, from CSI to Sherlock Holmes you choose the theme that fits your bride.

For a bit of a creative giggle, we offer life drawing. We provide the tools and the model, all you have to do is get creative! if that’s not your cup of tea, take advantage of being by the sea and try a bit of paddle boarding
