The beauty 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.
