Overview of Hen weekends in Nottingham
If you’re only just starting to consider Nottingham as the setting for the big hen send-off, know this: it’s one of Hen Heaven’s most popular cities and this is down to the simple fact that it has everything and more a bride-to-be and her very closest could want. Spas? Check. Great places to eat? Check. A nightlife to rival anywhere? Check.
Okay we're going to stop saying check now because we think you’ve got the idea, but this city and its central location really does make it the perfect and most convenient meeting point for friends coming from far and wide.
Nottingham stands out in history for one major thing… or shall we say, man: Robin Hood. The legend that took from the rich and gave to the poor is said to have lived in Sherwood Forest and on your travels through the city, expect to see a few references to him. Today, Nottingham is a fast-moving bustling city that loves its music, with many revellers making the trip to the famous Rock City every week.
Nottingham has made its name through it’s great nightlife, and no matter what you and your girls feel like getting up to, there will be something to suit you. Head to Just the Tonic or The Glee Club for drinks and a good laugh, Rock City for a rocking club night or live music and The Forum to party until the early hours.
Nottingham has enough to it to last you a week let alone a weekend, but here at Hen Heaven we felt like adding even more to the mix. Instead of looking for the Robin Hood statues, why not really live the dream and go for the MTV experience – with you and your girls practicing dance routines to make sure you feel like a group of stars before the big night and are able to set that dance floor on fire (please, not literally).
