Luckily South Wales offers one of the best combinations of nature, night-life, and fun anywhere in the UK. There's no shortage of activities in Cardiff and the surrounding area to keep your hen party moving right along
here's a quick list of some of the more popular ones:
Gorge Walking and Canyoning
This strangely-named activity is actually one of the most popular things to do in the Cardiff area. South Wales is blessed with some of the most beautiful natural gorges in the world, all only 45 minutes from Cardiff.
But what is gorge walking? Simply put, it's walking up a canyon cut by centuries of flowing water— but in practice, it's much more than that. Beautiful secluded waterfalls, deep pools, thundering rapids and crooked glistening crevasses are just some of the highlights of a South Wales gorge walk.
Worried that this might be too extreme for your hen party? Don't be. Gorge walking can be as challenging or as easy as you want it to be. Most waterfalls can be bypassed—you can even stay (mostly) dry if you want.
If you love the water, be sure to try one of the many guided tours of Cardiff Bay. This is a totally new way to see the city—educational, fun, and great physical activity. Many of the best restaurants are near the water, too, so feel free to hop out and grab a bite to eat if your party is feeling hungry!
If kayaking doesn't involve getting wet enough for you, be sure to check out the surfing scene on the Welsh coast. Wet suit recommended!
There is a plethora of great rock climbing to be had in South Wales. Whether you prefer the cliffs on the coast of Rest Bay, or a more mountainous experience inland in the Brecon mountains, South Wales is a great place for climbing. Just be sure to be safe!
Hopefully you're not tired out at the end of these great activities, because the city has a thriving night-
life scene that you won't want to miss. Hundreds bars and clubs pack this energetic Welsh city with some of the best drinks and entertainment anywhere in the British Isles. Whether you're looking for a sophisticated night out “dressed to the nines” or a wild and crazy last hurrah before the wedding, Cardiff has it for you!
