Bournemouth or Brighton? If you love sandy beaches, it’s Bournemouth every time for hens. Clubs on the coast include Halo, Sakura, and Cameo and Myu. Go cocktail crazy and sober up on the sands. Eat out at Urban Beef, with its beachside terrace, Crab for contemporary seafood, or sit on the sun terrace at Aruba.
Master mixology on a cocktail-mixing session, take a 90-minute Bollywood dance class bedecked in costumes and jewellery, book a pre-party pamper with a home spa package, or bump the bride in a crazy game of bubble football. Raise the tone with a tour of Dorset’s art collections, homes, churches, chapels or castles.
