Oxford hen do guide


Oxford, the “City of Dreaming Spires” boasts 1,500 listed buildings from every major period of British architectural history. The town’s appearance wouldn’t be out of place in a Disney film as the old town centre is like an enchanted fairy-tale city.

However, Oxford is so much more than stifling lecture rooms and snap-happy tourists. There’s still a rich nightlife scene to explore and we have some unique day time activities for you and the girls to partake in! So even if University and school is a distant memory to you girls, you can still come to Oxford for its eclectic mix of shops, bars and restaurants.

Being a student town, Oxford has its fair share of hen night friendly bars and clubs. Trust us, behind that posh and appropriate exterior is a fun town that really loves to party! Filled with sophisticated bars and restaurants, you really will be spoilt for choice in this glamorous city. Known for having some of the best cocktail bars in the country, we recommend that you and the girls get your hands dirty by partaking in a laughter and liqueur induced cocktail making experience with the girls!

Getting around

Being such an exclusive university, it’s hardly a surprise that the area has direct connections to London Paddington and Birmingham New Street, near Major Airlines. So wherever you are coming from, Oxford is a painless commute.

The Visitor Information Centre sells maps and guide books, so you can go and explore the city on foot or by bike if you want to! The students love their bikes and it is one of the few cities in the UK with a unique bike sharing programming. These 'Mobikes' could be a great way to get around or simply a fun activity to burn a few hours and calories.

Cabs will be available after a night out, though if your accommodation is near the centre of town it’s unlikely that you will need to book one, as everything is an easy walk on an Oxford hen do.

Tips and ideas

As the city is heavily influenced by historic culture, it seems fitting that there are various tours you can partake in.  These will take you round all of the oldest and most pertinent landmarks. You are allowed to wander round the university buildings without guidance. Though it’s fair to say, if you are interested and wish to learn all the gruesome details of England’s bloody history then it is best to get a tour guide.

Theatres also play a massive role in what the city’s entertainment offerings. There are a few dotted over the town, so if you are wanting to get cultural, then make sure you do your research and book your tickets.

Punting along the river is another great way to see the landmarks of the town and it is also great fun! It’s much harder than it looks, so if you don’t want to brave it alone, there are men who can do all the hard work for you – so you can sit back, relax and soak in the sights.

Nightlife

As Oxford is home to many of the world's cleverest students, it seems fitting that the city still has great pubs and bars for them all to hang out in and discuss the latest political forecast. So Oxford isn’t all brains, it still delivers with its nightlife. There are many, quaint little pubs and bars with higgledy-piggedly seating arrangements and wonky beams so you can get a real feel of the city’s history. Some like the Eagle and Child just outside the city centre was home to a writers club called the Inklings, which counted C.S. Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkien among its members.

There are also a ton of cocktail bars for you and the girls to treat and indulge yourselves with. There is plenty of money swilling around this beautiful city and these bars are the places to be seen and who knows, you might be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous on your hen weekend in Oxford! If you and the girls don’t want to stop at midnight and are itching to get on the dancefloor, then there are three major clubs, Lola Lo, Emporium and The Bridge.  All of which are within walking distance of the town centre and all of which are open 'til late!

The Univeristy, Hugh Laury, Toby Jones, The Dreaming Spires and the Bodleian Library.
