Transfers for your Bournemouth Hen Weekend



While Bournemouth is guaranteed to throw you and the girls a good time during your hen weekend, Maximise has a few ideas to make it an unforgettable weekend and one you're bound to love.

Learn how to mix, muddle and mash all your favourite cocktails with the hen party favourite Cocktail Making Class before heading out to sea on a Party Boat. Once back on try land, quench you're five o'clock hunger pains with a Traditional Afternoon Tea with a Twist.

Get the most out of your night with a guided Bar & Club Crawl, which is open to other party revellers and a great way to get a taste of the nightlife in Bournemouth. 

Finish your night in one of the city's top clubs, where Maximise can organise a VIP Booth & Drinks Package, so the celebrations can continue all night long. 

Day two of your hen weekend is all about the beach and fun in the sun, take a pick of coasteering, water sports and surf lessons, sea kayaking or beach games before enjoying a delicious 2-course lunch.

If the weather is not exactly warm, swap the beach fun for some dance moves in either a Grease, Spice Girls, Thriller or 90s-themed dance class.

Treat yourselves to a sweet afternoon treat with Chocadence with Prosecco followed by an even sweeter night with our Girls Night Out that comes complete with stripteases, shots, drinks and more! 


There's an unlimited choice of things to do for hen parties in Bournemouth, from the most sedate to heart-stopping action, there is something for everyone in Bournemouth.

Whether it's live music, chilled-out bars, or clubs pumping everything from RnB to the latest hits, there is a good night to be had in Bournemouth during your hen weekend.

Better yet, most of the top nightlife hot spots are found in the town centre and surrounds, meaning everything is in walking distance and perfect for a guided bar crawl. And, Maximise's top bar crawl is with Sexy Hunky Bar Crawl Buffs!

Old Christchurch Road is where you'll find the highest concentration of watering holes and probably the best place to start your hen party celebrations and drinking.

The Triangle is where you'll find the local LGBT, bohemian bars and a more hippie flare. And, if you want a cocktail with a view, you're in luck, as the majority of our hotels have cocktail lounges overlooking Bournemouth's beautiful beach and promenade. 

You'll also find your fair share of multi-level clubs that can cater to more than 1500 party revellers in Bournemouth, so whatever your style, budget and preferences, Maximise can deliver on a top night out in Bournemouth.

If you and the bride's tribe have a little downtime and want to enjoy some of the city's best scenery, heading to Bournemouth Pier won't disappoint. A must-visit local landmark that boasts amazing views and top attractions including indoor climbing, zip wire, restaurants, cafes and gift shops.

And, if the Brunch with Bottomless Prosecco isn't enough to clear the hen party hangovers, heading out to Hengistbury Head and Bournemouth Promenade for some fresh air and sea breeze might just do the trick. While it's not the same as Tenerife or Ibiza, you can still enjoy Surfing, Beach Games, Paddle Boarding, Sea Kayaking, Coasteering and some watersports to help wash away those weary heads and top up those tans!

Fun Fact: Bournemouth was found to be the happiest place to live in a 2007 survey - so you are guaranteed to meet some friendly locals during your hen weekend!

Bournemouth has a fairly extensive rail network with three local railway stations – the main being Bournemouth Station, in the east there is Pokesdown and there is Branksome to the west. You'll find routes to and from various locations around the UK, as well as a fast service from London Waterloo in as little as 97 minutes.
