What to Expect
Beautifully located in between the Montserrat mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is one of the most popular destinations for hens looking to enjoy their last few nights of freedom.
You can catch a flight to Barcelona-El Prat airport (about 20-30 minutes or so from the city centre - speak to one of our team to begin your trip in style with private transfers) from the majority of UK airports, and in just over 2 hours you’ll land on the sunny shores of Barcelona. In the low season, you can be jetting off for under £50 one-way, but keep an eye on those prices during the summer as they could set you back over £200 for a return! But there’ll be no time for grumbling when you're up your tans surrounded by sun, sea and sangria!
For the most part you’ll find everything you need for an amazing hen do in Barcelona within walking distance, but nothing more than a quick hop on the bus or metro will get you right into the heart of the action. And with one of the most efficient public transport systems in Europe, you and the girls can go from beach to restaurant, to spa to club!
Looking for somewhere to stay during your hen weekend in Barcelona? Apartments are a great option if you’re all wanting to stay together in private accommodation. With apartments for up to 4 ladies, you’ll be getting all dressed up together like the Love Island villa! Fancy someone with a pool? You'll no doubt be spoilt for choice by all the fantastic 3 and 4-star hotels in the area.
A Little Bit of History
As one of the most visited cities in Europe, Barcelona is the perfect place for an unforgettable hen weekend. Part beachy paradise, part cosmopolitan city, it’s packed with history (no surprise there considering it was founded as a Roman city!), and the locals are passionately proud of their heritage and with 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, who can blame them?!
A culturally fascinating city, Barcelona is a unique combination of Catalonian nationalism and Spanish culture. Whether it's the beautiful beaches, iconic architecture (see if you can spot any of Gaudi’s famous work as you walk the winding streets!) or incredible nightlife, there’s so much to do and so much to see.
Barcelona hen weekends are best enjoyed during the May, June and July - but it’s wise to shop around and book early for the best deals! If you’re wanting the scorching Spanish heat then August is your best bet and with temperatures rocking up to 34°c, you’ll want to bring your biggest hat and plenty of sun cream! If you’re looking for a more affordable time to go, October and November are great too, but you can enjoy Barcelona pretty much anytime of the year.
For a more authentic Barcelona experience, you should definitely head to Las Ramblas. The pedestrian-only street is popular with locals, tourists and, of course, hens! With tons of fantastic restaurants, lively bars and the famous La Boqueria market, it’s the perfect place for stopping off for a bite to eat and some shopping. Sound fun? Make sure you check out the Gothic Quarter and L’Eixample too!
Things to Do, See & Experience
No hen do in Barcelona is complete without dabbling in a bit of the traditional culture. Whether you’re auditioning for Strictly in a Flamenco or Salsa class, creating exotic concoctions in one of our cocktail making classes or tucking into some delicious tapas on an evening, you won’t be disappointed!
Now, you can’t visit Barcelona without taking in some of the gorgeous sites, and what better way to do so than by enjoying a GoCar tour around the city! In pairs you’ll get to drive around the city in little yellow cars, passing some of the most iconic spots and attractions - it’ll be a tour like no other! Or how about an open-air bus tour? Perfect for snapping some awesome photos.
As the sun starts to set, the night is just beginning! You can keep the party going well into the night with VIP club entry to either Shoko, Catwalk, Pacha and more for a night to remember… With tables, bottles and mixers, VIP area and resident DJs, you can’t get much better than this!
A hen do in Barcelona has all the ingredients needed to make some monumental memories that you’ll share with the girls long after the wedding!
