Your hen party must have- Sashes and a garter for the hen-it’s a classic and when else do you get the chance to wear them?! It's also way easier to co-ordinate than fancy dress but people can still tell it's a special occasion!

If you could only bring 3 beauty products on your hen do what would you take? Straighteners, fake lashes and fake tan definitely.

What celebrity would you like in your hen party squad? To look at Zac Efron, but Adele to party with-she’d be a laugh.

Top 3 pre drinking playlist songs- Anything by the Spice Girls or S Club 7 is a winner, and I’d also have Roxanne by The Police so we could play the drinking game-you basically drink every time the word Roxanne is mentioned in the song, and trust me, that’s a lot.

Hen do drink of choice-Vodka cranberry every time.

Top tip for organising an amazing hen party-Don’t fall out with the other hens. It’s tempting sometimes to say what you’re really thinking if someone in the group is being demanding, but trust me, it’s worth letting it go over your head on this occasion.


Recommended UK city-Nottingham is a great  destination but it’s sometimes overlooked in favour of other hen party cities. Trust me though, it’s a great night out and there’s a load of activities to fill your days too. One of my favourite things to do in the city is the fifty shades of grey workshop. It’s a real ice breaker if your group don’t know each other, and it’s one of those unique experiences you’ll only try on a hen weekend so it’s well worth giving it a go.

There’s no need to worry about it being awks either as the instructors are great at putting everyone at ease and adapt to the vibe of the group-it’s not one to be missed if you want a laugh and some stories to take home!

Nottingham hen house-Obviously one of the most important things about your hen weekend is staying somewhere great. It might only be your base if you’ve got a busy few days of activities planned, but it’s nice to have somewhere great to get ready and take pics before you head out.

We have some great accommodation in the city, including our brand new Coach House. Everything from the décor to the furniture has been decided on by the Hen Heaven team, and with years of talking to hens under our belts, we know exactly what every hen house worth its salt needs!  It’s also in a great location in the city, close to the centre.

One of the reasons a hen house is so great is because it’s like a home away from home-you can cook a hangover fry up in peace, and some of our best hen activities are mobile and can be bought to the house too, so if you’re too lazy for a pamper sesh at a salon or want to make cocktails for your pre drinks, you can order the service in. It’s also a brill place to host a butler in the buff-after all, who wants to be handing round drinks and nibbles all night when you can get a hot man to do it for you? It’s a no-brainer really.


When you want to glam up and head out for drinks-For the evening, I really recommend the fun boat party. Why stay in a bar all night when you can take a tour of all Nottingham has to offer and celebrate the hen’s last night of freedom with a cruise? The all-inclusive option includes a DJ, hot meal and a drinks package. You also get club entry and transport from the port to the club afterwards included in the price, so it’s basically a whole night out in one package which is great value! Nottingham isn’t a destination to be missed!
