Hen weekends in Birmingham

England’s second city Birmingham knows what you need for a great hen weekend, and delivers with aplomb. The Bullring shopping centre offers a huge amount of shops for you to peruse during the day, and of course there is the large bronze bull that sits outside the entrance to the shopping centre - a fantastic opportunity for some photos and fun. Don’t climb onto it though, especially if you pass it in a drunken state, because it might just buck you off! When night falls though, just head to Broad Street and your hen night is sorted.

John Cadbury started a small confectionary company called Cadburys in Birmingham, with his sons later creating a model village called Bourneville, which was home to the first Cadbury factory and also to many of its workers. Bourneville was built with Cadburys’ employees in mind, and the manufacturing plant is now home to Cadbury World, a visitor attraction with a one-way self-guided tour that attracts over 500,000 visitors a year.

Nightlife

There is only one place to head to for a night out in Birmingham, Broad Street. A long old stretch of road, Broad Street is home to an array of restaurants, clubs, pubs and bars. Therefore, you could spend an entire evening there and be sure of having a great time. At the top of Broad Street is the recently opened Gatecrasher club, which more often than not hosts big name DJs at the weekends.

You’ll see plenty of other pubs and bars, and also a handful of kebab shops which are always so appealing at 3am on a Sunday morning.

Brindley Place can be found just off Broad Street and has a couple of nice bars and restaurants that you can dine at by the side of the canal. Birmingham actually has more miles of canals than Venice.

Birmingham's Famous For

Jasper Carott, Mr Hudson, Jamelia and that instantly recognisable 'Brummie' accent.

Birmingham has plenty of bus routes and during the day these routes are run quite regularly. However in the evenings the buses are less frequent so you will probably want to take a taxi if you’re any distance from the city centre. Be sure to find a local taxi firms number and book your taxis that way, as you’ll often be able to agree a price beforehand, this is almost always cheaper than jumping into a black cab.
