With over 200 incredible activities to choose from and a ridiculously good nightlife scene to its name, it’s clear to see why more and more hens are opting to have their final send-offs in Nottingham. Whether you’re a girlie girl who wants to be pampered and preened between all of those elaborate (and totally Instagrammable) cocktails, or whether you’re more of a tomboy who wants to get arrow slinging and put through their paces with the likes of Totally Wiped Out, It’s a Knockout or Medieval Mayhem, there’s something for everyone in Nottingham.
With the iconic Sherwood Forest on its doorstep, which covers a whopping 450 acres of land, it’ll come as no surprise to you that a lot of Nottingham’s daytime activities are centred around the famous forest. For example, Outdoor Laser Tag, The Hunter Games and the scramble nets, tyre tunnel and Burma Bridge of the assault course are among many action-packed activities within the forest itself.
With so much choice, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, so let us make it easier for you, by telling you our top rates and best-selling activities in Nottingham – remember, they’re our most popular for a reason. Of course, we can’t go any further without giving a massive shout out to Nottingham’s nightlife scene, which is where the majority of our most popular activities are based. Located in the centre of Nottingham, Revolution’s popularity lately has snowballed, with locals and visitors to the city alike, heading through its doors to sample those notorious cocktails. Nottingham is lucky, in that is has a regular Revs where you can make the most of those potent drinks, lively atmosphere and even get yourself an afternoon tea, should the fancy take you, but they’ve also got a Revolucion de Cuba, where many of our hens opt for cocktail workshops accompanied by everything from tapas, nibbles or full-on three course meals.
As the night wears on, our hen groups need somewhere reliably wild to let their hair down on their final send-off, which is where Pryzm and Missoula play their part. These large capacity clubs regularly fill out on Friday and Saturday nights, so make sure to get yourselves on the guestlist by booking with LNOF.
As far as the morning after is concerned, you’ve got two options – you can lounge about all day and feel sorry for yourselves in your hungover states, or you can make the most of your host city and get out and about doing some of the very best activities on offer. For the latter, Go Ape Tree Top Adventure is a popular choice, with zip wires, Tarzan swings and high ropes obstacles throughout your woodland course. Turning back the clock to year three P.E., our Old School Sports Day is extremely popular with hens celebrating in Nottingham; jam-packed with nostalgia, you’ll have egg and spoon races, space hoppers, sack races and fun prizes to top it all off.
If you don’t have a head for heights, that’s not a problem – the Dirty Dancing dance class is becoming more and more popular with hen groups visiting Nottingham. Not only is the dance class a great way to break the ice and get all the girls talking, but it’s a good way to rid yourselves of a hangover quickly. Apart from adrenaline-pumping activities and drinking your bodyweight in spirits, having a side of hunky bloke is a hen party rite of passage, and your Nottingham hen do is no different. Whether it’s the ever popular Dreamboys Show, a butler in the buff or a nude life drawing class, you and your group won’t forget these *ahem* bodies in a while…
