History and Culture:
Birmingham has not always been viewed as the most exciting places to live or visit. This is due to its rapid development during the industrial revolution. This has changed in the last twenty years and Birmingham is no longer considered boring. In the nineties, many of the buildings that were considered to be unappealing to the eye were replaced with more beautiful architecture. One such example is The Selfridges at Bullring, which has changed greatly and is now considered an example of the new face of the city. Birmingham is England’s second city and rightfully so, it offers the best dining and nightlife outside of London. For sure, it would be a great place to host your hen party. There are a lot of museums and art to see in Birmingham during your hen do.
If you are on a time budget, your first stop should be at Bullring, which is considered the prime place to find all the top shops. The Custard Factory is just a short hike away from Bullring and offers a great alternative to the chain stores with its smaller boutique shops. This gives you the best of both worlds during your Hen Party in Birmingham!
During your Hen Do in Birmingham, you should take time to go out at night. There are many great bars and dance clubs in Birmingham. These include clubs on Broad Street, like Gatecrasher, Risa, and Oceana. If you want to stay away from the clubs, visit St. Paul’s Square for some jazz music or Digbeth for an Irish feel. Whatever you want, you can find it in Birmingham.
Eating & Drinking:
