Overview of Hen weekends in Birmingham
England’s 'second city', Birmingham, knows what you need for a great hen weekend in Birmingham, and delivers with aplomb. The Bullring shopping centre offers a huge amount of shops for you to peruse during the day, and there's a cheeky drunken photo opportunity in the form of a giant bronze bull outside. When night falls, just head to Broad Street and your hen night in Birmingham 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.
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.
What our customers say...
What a fantastic weekend!?! When I was given the task of organising the hen weekend for my best friend I honestly though it would be a nightmare task. How wrong was I? Hen heaven were fantastic and made the whilst process soooo much less stressful and easy to plan.
We spend our day participating in a bollywood dance class, which was fun and entertaining along with spending the night at the raddison hotel in birmingham. ( this was brilliant service as I found that hen heaven were the only company, that I contacted, who could tell us where we would be stopping prior to booking the whole event). It was fantastic value for money, the company were upbeat and reassuring, and the whole weekend was a success. Congratulations hen heaven on a job well done. I have and will continue to recommend your services to other friends .

I was asked by the Bride to organise her Hen night and when I found the Hen Heaven website, I thought I had struck gold -- usernames and passwords for all the hens and they could go on themselves to make their payments which took the pressure off me with collecting deposits/final payments. Initally, there was a few mis-understandings but after a few phone calls/emails, this issue was resolved promptly by Hen Heaven. Out of my overall experience with Hen Heaven, the only disappointing thing was that you couldn't make small payments each month, after the deposit you then have to pay a lump sum which worked out OK but it would have been nice to have the option to pay monthly.
We paid £90 for our Hen weekend which all the hens agreed was brilliant value for money. The hotel (Jurys Inn - Birmingham Broad Street) was great, clean and the staff were very friendly. The rooms exceeded our expectations and it was nice that the hotel put all 18 of us in rooms next door to each other. Breakfast was also included which turned out to be a breakfast buffet which helped with lots of hung over hens.
By far the best part of the weekend was the Cocktail experience at Revolution (also located on Broad Street). Brilliant value you for money and really did blow our expectations out of the window. The staff were really friendly and accomodated us really well. During the cocktail experience 18 of us had the following drinks:
2 cocktails each
6 further cocktails to share between 2 people
BRILLIANT!!!! I can not rate the cocktail experience more, if you're undecided, definate
