As a Brummie and a huge lover of Birmingham, I am going to do my utmost to not be too biased and opinionated towards my home city here. But it does just so happen that ‘the second city’ is renowned for its many attractions and buzzing atmosphere. I have to be honest, you can’t really go wrong with a hen night here. One thing I say about Brum to anyone that will listen is that it has something for everyone.
So why throw your hen-do in Birmingham? Well, there are a few factors worth taking into consideration…
You all know what I’m going to say. And if you haven’t heard of it, then you’ll at the very least have seen a picture of it somewhere…
Yep, you got it. The Bullring. And there is nothing quite like a huge shop with the girls in one of Britain’s most famous shopping centres. I must add, Birmingham has shops to suit each and every person’s weird and wonderful style. Not to mention budget. You certainly won’t have to worry about a lack of choice regarding shops in Brum. Shopping is a great activity to fill up daytime hours before your big night.
Places to see
We all know you can’t visit the second city and have no-where to go and see. Every big city has its points of interest. If you are all shopped-out, fear not. You’ll still find plenty to do. Have a gander at a few of these if you are looking for things to do during the day;
And many, many more! You certainly will not be struggling to find things to do here. You will also have no trouble getting around with buses and trains running from early till late going in all directions.
The National Sea Life Centre is a fun and interesting day out for any age!
From Travel Lodges dotted around left, right and centre, to the luxurious Radisson Blu, you will not find it hard to find somewhere to stay in Brum that suits your requirements. If you’re only going to be spending a few hours in your bedroom while you sleep, or if you want to spend the day having a relaxing spa with the girls, you’ll have lots of choice as to where you can stay.
The Radisson Blu Hotel
Like I mentioned earlier, Birmingham has something for everyone. Especially when it comes to nightlife. Get your hen-gear on and head down to the famous Broad Street, which is FILLED with bars and clubs with all sorts of different atmospheres and music. Don’t forget the beautiful Brindley Place as well, where lots of lovely bars and restaurants sit alongside Birmingham’s 35 mile canal (that’s longer than Venice’s). Brindley place is personally my favorite spot in Brum to go for a drink. Although there is a bustling atmosphere, it is a prettier and more tranquil spot in comparison to clubbing areas like Broad Street. There is something oh-so-lovely about taking a stroll along the canal at night, when Brindley Place comes alive.
Birmingham honestly will not leave you feeling like there is nothing to do. You’ll be spoiled for choice no matter what kind of things you decide you want to do. In fact, you will probably want to come back ASAP! Make sure you take Birmingham into consideration for your hen-destination!!
