Why choose Birmingham as a Hen Party destination?
A metropolitan goddess of Great Britain, the phrase ‘go large or go home’ is a regular chant for Birmingham hen parties. As the second largest city in the UK, Birmingham is second to none where nightlife and a party atmosphere is concerned. The backdrop ain’t too bad either, from serene parks to rows of Georgian townhouses. Birmingham is beautiful, sprawling and packed with unequivocally friendly locals.
Birmingham’s booming industrial history is evident when regency townhouses line the city’s streets along with other architectural masterpieces such as The Council House, Newhall Street and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Birmingham regularly undergoes regeneration and holds over 500 parks, more than in any other European city. Birmingham is the type of city where your hens can truly lose themselves.
While it’s highly doubtful that your hens are keen to gloss over the pages of the literature that Birmingham is famous for, The Library of Birmingham still serves as one of the most popular landmarks. This glistening silver and gold cubed structure provides some magnificent views from both the outside and inside where hens may climb to the not so secret garden on the seventh floor and discover the beauty of Birmingham from above.
Birmingham is the Crème de la Crème of shopping destinations in the UK, which won’t be surprising for any hen who take a glance at the remarkably modern Selfridge Building at the Bullring Shopping Centre. The Bullring encompasses over 160 stores from designer to high street, while the shopping mecca of Birmingham, in fact, includes various large scale shopping complexes like The Mailbox, Grand Central and Pavilions. Birmingham hen parties can also look forward to other unique shopping experiences like arcades, markets, independent shops and stalls at the Balti Triangle where hens can pick up some exotic bargains.
In terms of bespoke shopping opportunities, the shopping area around Soho House is incredibly famous for its speciality, crafted jewellery.
