A look at a beautiful part of Nottingham

Why can’t everywhere offer as good an experience as a Nottingham hen weekend?

Nottingham has so far hosted more LNOF hen & stag weekends than any other city, so it must be doing something right, yeah? Maybe it’s the huge concentration of pubs, inns and taverns that all compete for your custom, or perhaps it’s the restaurants on every corner, most of whom offer great deals in attractive surroundings, and maybe it’s those nightclubs, fit to burst with friendly, good-natured weekenders, students and locals alike. The fact that this is also a location slap bang in the centre of the country doesn’t do any harm either.

The image of Nottingham as a booze, curry and club fest is only part of the picture, for it’s also got one of the biggest collections in activity centres or event sites anywhere in the UK – if not THE biggest – as well as a thriving music scene, stacks of cool cafes and smart shops, plus the immense historical influence that is inescapable. People go to Nottingham partly because its businesses know just how to cater for large groups on hen weekends, and you’ll certainly recognise the (generally) sensible door policies, attractive drinks prices and value-for-money dining deals in many places

With such a huge degree of historical influence everywhere, the locals are understandably proud of a city with more than its fair share of castles, cobbled streets, ye olde inns and ancient markets. There are even a few tongue-in-cheek ghost tours and medieval banquets scattered around to ramp up the whole Middle England thing, while the legend of Robin "nice tights" Hood carries on in museums and visitor centres everywhere. There are plenty of real ale pubs, sure, but you also have the choice of hundreds of modern, swanky bars too – you know, the kind where beautiful individuals perch on stools, answer their mobiles very loudly and tilt their head back to laugh heartily no matter who’s calling.

Make sure that you let us help you include at least one daytime event, since some of the choices in this city are things you might only get to do once in your lifetime. But it’s always the nightlife that seals it for a location, and in a hen weekend in Nottingham you’ve backed a surefire winner – a forest of entertainment possibilities await your visit.

“Cocktail Making and hotel were excellent , the nude life drawing was an experience but not a hunk, very strange! Wasn't advised that you get drink in the room, but good experience! The boat had a roast dinner not a BBQ as we thought. Very small but okay.”


08/09/2013

“The weekend was absolutely amazing, everything was just perfect, the whole group had a fab time. Cocktail making was so much fun and lasted ages! We were all a bit worst for wear! And the party boat in the evening was great. Cheap drinks and lots of dancing! The hotel was great too, staff really friendly, comfy beds and amazing breakfast! All together a perfect weekend. Thanks for taking all the stress out of it and providing an outstanding service! ”

“weekend was fantastic and we couldn't fault the hotel the staff were lovely. ”


23/05/2013

“Laura the dance instructor was fantastic she made a great morning for us and we could nearly dance at the end. Thank you so much for a memorable day.”


12/03/2013

The comedy club was brilliant and extremely helpful, the entrance to the club was awful. The club staff were rude and unhelpful. I found I had to demand and explain why we were there it was as if they had no idea we were booked in!!!
The hotel we stayed in was extremely good though and we were all together in rooms next to each other. The hotel facilities were closed Sunday which was a shame as we'd been told we could use these during our stay. Over all it was ok. ”


28/02/2012

I couldn't be more pleased with the service provided by Last Night of Freedom - especially Chris Rawlison who did a great job getting this all booked for us.

We had a ball we really enjoyed the comedy club and the meal we had was amazing. The Holiday Inn Express was very clean and tidy and the staff were lovely. We had a range of ages from 31 - 62 years and all had a great time with no complaints - the spa was nice too and Georgia who did the treatments (Hilton) was so friendly and a joy.

All in all we had a fabulous time and I would definitely use yourselves again and have already recommended you. Thank you Nicola Rigby ”


26/08/2011

“Very close to the nightlife and centre! go carting was awesome but the boat wasn’t that good for people of our age!”


06/08/2011

“Nottingham is a great place to hold a hen night as here are many other hen and stag nights taking place there. Everything is within walking distance making it really easy to get about. The hotel was clean and friendly although you are likely to be woken up by other parties. It is a great place for a night out! The boat trip we went on was fab, something a bit different and really good food.”


04/08/2011

“Brilliant weekend, happy with everything, no complaints really. The only thing is that the Jacuzzi at the hotel wasn’t working, and it would have done wonders for me the day after!”


27/07/2011

Riverboat cruise was worth the money only grumble is that there were far too many groups on board and was very difficult to move around.”


27/07/2011

“fun fun fun ”


26/07/2011

Had a really great weekend, the only down side was that we had sent details of who should have been sharing rooms with who to the hotel and they got it all wrong, but it didn’t take too long for them to sort it all out.”


26/07/2011

“We had a great hen weekend in Nottingham. The nightclub was fantastic and hotel had good sized rooms and bathrooms. The spa was ropey and dirty though and the comedians at the comedy club were below par.”


25/05/2011

“I was a little uncertain as to the instructions on the voucher and what would happen when, but everything turned out ok. We booked a river cruise with travel to nightclub included - this wasn't fully explained on the voucher but staff on the boat explained it well. In all it was a good night and the VIP club entry was worth it.”


25/05/2011

“Hotel was lovely, close enough to city centre, burlesque lessons were fun, although the woman was a little strange.... meal was lovely, a further range of English meals may have helped a little... altogether a good night, perhaps in the package could be introduced free admission to clubs/free drinks in bars etc to tempt people to stay out in the nightlife.”


17/05/2011

“Firstly I want to say a massive thank you. The dancing lesson was brilliant. The teacher was fantastic and our hen loved it. All of the organising done by yourselves was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend your website to anyone else organising a hen do.

The attitude of the bar staff in the hotel wasn’t great but as I said I was more than happy with the service we received from you. Thank you again ”


14/05/2011

The weekend was brilliant, The boat cruise was great craic and the free drinks was a plus! :D Loved the cocktail classes! The nightlife was brilliant and would love to go back!!”


05/05/2011

Had the best weekend ever!! Cruise was really fun and the cocktail classes were brilliant!! The nightclub was excellent!! Everything was class really!!”


05/05/2011

We had a brilliant weekend. The river boat cruise was great fun and all drinks were free for the 3 hours we were on it. At the cocktail classes we had loads to drink and they just kept on coming. Great value for money!! Thanks a mil x”


05/05/2011

Everything was perfect except for the location of the hotel, we would have preferred if the hotel was in the centre of the city rather than having to get so many taxis everywhere.”


05/05/2011

“We had a fantastic time in Nottingham, and the weekend was brilliant value for money. I would definitely recommend Last Night of Freedom :-)”


05/05/2011

“Brilliant time.”


12/04/2011

ABSOLUTELY WICKED WEEKEND.

First of all there were 16 of us girls on the hen do ranging from ages of 23 to in the 40's. The tapas meal on the Friday night was OK, the nightclub Was BRILLIANT! The river boat cruise was hilarious but not for the faint hearted!!. ”


11/04/2011

“The hotel was really nice, the burlesque dancing was great & the boat was fun. The only downsides are as follows:

- Lack of instruction on what to wear for the burlesque class resulted in uncomfortable people.

- We were on a different boat to the itinerary for the disco BBQ & it was a carvery not a BBQ.

-We had Friday & Saturday night tickets to the same club - didn't really want to go to the same place 2 nights in a row.

Apart from these little things everything else was great ”


02/11/2010

Brilliant location, fantastic hotel, service, breakfast outstanding, the nightclub was brilliant. I would recommend booking somewhere to eat before arriving, as majority of places stopped serving by 9.30pm, so Fri night was a bit of a disaster for food. We however found a great place to eat on the Saturday night "peachykeens" which was fab. Taxi firm D&G cars were the best priced taxi cabs.

We all enjoyed the tank driving and Zorbing, although for the price would have expected 2 zorbing runs, didn’t get a photo as stated either, and was made to sit around for an hour before activities started! But having said that no regrets!”


16/10/2010

“We had an excellent weekend, the Dirty Dancing was amazing - we really had the time of our lives.”


13/10/2010

“Weekend went fully as planned.

Hotel was of a high standard for a typical hen do location! Staff were friendly and assisted with any questions and ordering cabs. Comedy club went down well on the Friday and started the weekend off nicely for the girls to get to know each other.

The nightclub was a really good end to the night (followed by Food Factory over the road of course)!! After a much needed yummy brekkie we had the mud buggies. We had a great afternoon and a good laugh with the other stag / hen do's there. Saturday night we went out for another fab evening. Thanks to all at Last night of Freedom for their help and answering all my questions before the weekend! ”


13/10/2010

I thought the venue was really good, all needs and age groups were catered for...A good night was had by all!!!”


03/08/2010

Great hotel - not quite central location but great facilities in the hotel and great breakfast. Paintballing was good but the lunch provided was horrible! Nottingham ok for nightlife - not the best”


15/07/2010

The 'love boat' was so much fun! Strippers/G-string waiters certainly enjoyed their job and the hen had a brilliant night and we have some ace pictures!!”


24/06/2010

I recommend using this company to organise your hen weekend. Everything went to plan and the MTV dance experience was brilliant. All my girls had a great time and the accommodation I couldn't fault. Thanks for a brilliant weekend!”


21/05/2010

“enjoyed my day but one complaint the dance instructor was to serious and had no sense of humour as it was a hen party.”


20/04/2010

The hotel was perfect - close to the town centre but with parking and not horrible and dingy like some 'hen do' hotels are.

Spa facilities were fabulous and the staff all really warm and friendly. The Boat trip was a fabulous laugh-good fun and again the staff were very helpful.”


02/04/2010

Really good atmosphere on the boat. We were expecting a bbq however a carvery was provided when we arrived. The food was average - room for improvement. Dj was great - overall had a good night! Would recommend!! ”


28/01/2010

All the girls have commented on what a fab time they had, we had such a laugh singing and dancing and would definately arrange it again for another hen, top weekend away!!”


02/10/2009

The hotel was great. The cheerleading didn't seem to last that long - it was really fun though. The comedy club was very geared towards men.”


19/08/2009

My Hen Weekend in Nottingham was fantastic, the hotel was lovely, and the Dirty Dancing Party was the best!! All my chicks had lots of fun and laughs. I want to go again!!”


05/08/2009

We had a really good time. The hotel was ideal and the Breakfast was really nice (all you can eat!) the jacuzzi wasnt working unfortunately! But rooms were really nice and staff helpful.

The Tapas on the Friday night was OK and the boat party was excellent - really enjoyed this - the meal was a bit rough but that was to be expected! ”


29/07/2009

Cocktail making was fantastic and was suitable for everyone in the group of all ages.

Hotel was nice and we enjoyed the spa facilities however there was no on-site parking. Location was excellent, central to everything. The booklet I received with all the vouchers and information was clear and easy to look after.

It was relaxing to know that everything was organised and booked so all we had to worry about was turning up and having a great time! A fantastic weekend was had by all, thank you LNOF! ”


22/07/2009

Hotel was fabulous and was situated directly in the centre of Nottingham. The comedy club was excellent. The trip went without a hitch!”

09/07/2009

“It was great 2 things though was i thought a mini bus would have been included and also when we went to the dirty dancing place it was awfuly hot no fan or air conditioning....but minor things as it was reallly good.x.”


09/07/2009

I thought the weekend was brilliant and the activities were great, the only let down was the bar staff at the hotel as they took such a long time to serve you everytime you went to the bar. ”


09/07/2009

I couldn't of asked for my friends Hen do to go any better. It was an absolutly brilliant weekend and full of lots of other hen and stag parties.”


08/07/2009

Thank you very much we had the most amazing weekend ever. The hotel was lovely including the breakfast, a good fry up is exactly what you need to start another day of activities/drinking!

The Dirty Dancing experience was brilliant, only bad comment would be its a shame that they dont record a video of it for you, other than that it was perfect. Nottingham is definitely the place to go. Thanks again and i would reccomend your company to everyone.”


01/07/2009

“The hotel was great & the cruise was brilliant! The fame factory experience was not as good as we expected-the makeup lady did not seem to have any idea what to do.Nottingham pubs were really good but the club wasn't great. ”


07/10/2008

We had an awesome weekend, however our room breakdown was not as we had requested. ”


03/09/2008

The medieval banquet was really good fun, entertainment and food were great, plus because the drink was included in the price we had plenty of money left over for champagne later in the evening. ”

“it was a good central location as people were travelling from the north and south. ”


05/08/2008

The comedy club was the best night - full of other people on hen/stag parties. fantastic music played at the venue afterwards.”


24/07/2008

The singing was great fun and got us all in the party spirit. The dance instructor was a bit of a poser, trying to show off his 'funky' dance moves but we all enjoyed learning the dance and it was certainly memorable! ”


23/07/2008

We booked the Dirty Dancing Themed hen party in Nottingham through LNOF. The guys at the venue were really friendly, welcoming helpful and professional. The dance instructor was very professional and took himself and his dancing very seriously -which we all thought was hilarious! The group had a fabulous time and would recommend the venue, party and LNOF.”


28/06/2008

Brilliant weeekend, friday getting dressed up and going out casual in flipflops was fab walking in to pubs people were very friendly, manager of two bars offered us free drinks and the dj"s got us all dancing.

saturday recording experience was the best thing i have ever done realy good fun the people were friendly and could not do enough to get hot and cold drinks and tender to our ever need.

Partying on the sat night was a good laugh nightclub was clean and there was no trouble to spoil our night.”


25/06/2008

We had a cracking weekend, thoroughly enjoyed by all one member of party commented "I have never laughed so hard and so much all in one weekend".

The Dirty Dancing themed party was just fantastic. 10/10 for this, the staff were brilliant and could not have done anymore for us. The experience was enjoyed by all especially the Hen and we all left on a high with great memories to treasure forever (also with black mascara eyes where we cried laughing!). Our night at the club you booked us into was great, we dressed as cowgirls and dressed the Hen as a saloon girl which got plenty of comments. We even managed not to fall off the revolving dance floor which was a bonus!! I would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of all 22 of us to yourselves, and the venues you use for an outstanding weekend which I am sure will never be forgotten. All I need now is for someone else to be getting married so I can organise another Hen Weekend through yourselves, Thanks again.

Anyway well done to all involved your end and a million thanks to you all...... superb, you are doing a great job, keep it up! ”


21/05/2008

Overall a very good night. Well priced drinks on the river boat - happy hour.”


21/05/2008

The night was great. The bride definately enjoyed it!


12/03/2008

Last Night of Freedom were very helpful in organising a great hen weekend to Nottingham, always able to answer questions and accomodate what was asked or requested.

The staff at the recording studio were great, made our session there so enjoyable.

The Thai resturant were also very accomodating and friendly, food was great too! Generally our weekend away was fantastic and we wanted to do it all over again! Would certainly recommend using Last Night of Freedom to others.”


20/02/2008

An excellent night, enjoyed by all!

Casino was great most people left a few quid up apart from the hen who was too drunk to stand let alone be sensible at the blackjack table!!

Apart from a few minor admin errors everything went well. I would recommend to anyone.”


07/11/2007

Bride said it was the 2nd best day of her life (1st being her wedding day) with all her favourite girlies and having so much fun! Accomodation, pole dancing and night out all fantastic! Will definately use you again, thanks very much to steve!!”


04/11/2007

01/11/2007

“Had a great weekend to remember!!”


31/10/2007

“I just wanted to let you know about my experience on my Hen Weekend.

It was the best experience ever. It was booked for 30 women All ages and it all went smoothly. The booking process was easy and all the information received was clear. We did have one problem, 2 days before we were due to go, the venue where we were having our meal on the friday night had closed, however after a couple of phone calls the team came up trumps and sorted it.

Friday night - meal at an excellent restaurant - Wow what a meal! All 30 guests were pleased with the meal and service. We then went onto the nightclub and had a brilliant night of drinking and dancing!

Saturday Activity - Singing and Photos - Best Experience EVER!!! The guys at the activity venue worked so hard, i never thought the experience would be so professional. We all sung loads of songs, all had our make up done and then had 100's of professional photos. It was amazing i cannot express how good it was. Food and drink was on hand. The Staff certainly made this activity!!!! The quality and amount of songs and photos are really good.

Saturday Night -A night at the Dogs - once again, a great night, suited everyone.

Hotel 3* - Fantastic - Good sized rooms all on same corridor, breakfast was gorgeous.

Overall the whole weekend was certainly great value for money, All 30 women whose ages varied from 18 - 60 really enjoyed the weekend it could not be faulted in any way. My hen weekend was in June and people are still talking about it! all people can say is ' it will take a lot to beat that weekend'!!!! Thank you for making my Hen weekend so memorable.

Many Thanks Kate ”


30/10/2007

The boat cruise we went on was fantastic it was not what any of us were expecting at all {which is in a good way} ha ha, we then went onto the nightclub which is just brill I think its the best club ever we have all been to we just spent all night looking for each other seing as theres so many rooms ha ha.
