Hen Party Ideas In Cardiff

This week’s blog is packed with helpful tips on planning a hen party in Cardiff & Penarth.

I visit South Wales a lot as we run so many crafty workshops there. I have totally fallen in love with the area (although nothing will drag me away from my London roots!). penarth pier2 My favourite place in the Cardiff area is Penarth. Only a 15 minute train ride for the centre of Cardiff and is set on the ocean with a beautiful vintage pier offering gorgeous views of Penarth. We host crafty workshops in both these locations.

Expect, Great Teas – imported by Waterloo Tea, with many Organic and FairTrade options. Gorgeous Coffee (you’re going to need it!) – rotating roasters, showcasing different roasters, origins and varietals. Delicious Food – using seasonal local produce, and a focus on creativity.

Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Teas. Art – fundamental to what their space is all about – expect to be surprised with an array of artists, both local and from further afield.

Cardiff Hen Party Idea Number 3

Take a Charleston Dance Class with “Lindy Hop Cardiff.”

We love a bit of vintage dancing and Lindy Hop Cardiff are creating fantastic nights out with classes included. They also run hen party dance classes. They even have a class on the Penarth Pier, it’s called “Swinging At The Pavillion” (pictured below) and it looks like so much fun.

They can teach you The Charleston in a one hour class for hen party groups….I so want to do this wearing a Glam Hatters’ Great Gatsby Inspired Head Piece and a Flapper dress.
