Nottingham Hen Party Ideas

If you’re plotting a fabulous hen weekend, Nottingham is a brilliant destination. There’s more to Nottingham than just Robin Hood – so take your band of merry hen party ladies through Sherwood Forest and party with style!


Nottingham is synonymous with Robin Hood, so for fans of the legendary hero there are plenty of attractions dedicated to the folk hero to keep you busy. The city boasts its annual Robin Hood Festival (a must-do for the die-hard fans), a Robin Hood Beer Festival and the Robin Hood trail that will let you walk in the legend’s steps. Fans will have to put the Church of St Mary on their Robin Hood itinerary. The Church built in 1175 is, according to legend, the place where Robin Hood and Maid Marian wed. Not only does Nottingham boast the legend of Robin Hood, but the Pilgrim Fathers also hail from the area. You can take the Mayflower Trail and follow in their steps before they embarked on their trip to the New World.


Lovers of DH Lawrence, Alan Sillitoe and Lord Byron will be able to walk the streets these literary legends loved. Byron lovers should pay homage to the great man at the St Mary Magdalene Church where he is entombed.


Torvill and Dean fans can stand proud in the city too, as the ice-skating legends were born and raised here, and you can even attempt your own Bolero in the £43 million National Ice Centre. Nottingham is a great location for a hen party that likes to spend the day thrill-seeking in adventure theme parks – around the Nottingham area you can find the The Wheelgate Adventure Park, Twinlakes Theme Park and Alton Towers.


For a more adult end to your Nottingham hen party, you can’t go wrong sampling the legendary nightlife. With over 300 restaurants in the city centre, you are spoilt for choice; Carluccio’s is a great place for Italian food lovers; French food fans can sample some beautiful cuisine at Le Bistrot Pierre; and, to have a dinner with a difference why not try a riverboat dinner cruise on the Nottingham Princess? To carry on down the history trail you might want to start your evening off in Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, reputed to be England’s oldest pub, which dates back to 1189, and then head to the twelfth century Bell Inn in the Market Square. Those hen parties who are experienced ale drinkers should consider going on Nottingham’s Real Ale Trail, where you can sup your way through drinks in 14 different recommended locations throughout the city. The stylish cocktail crowd should make a beeline for Chapel Bar, the Lace Market and Low Pavement.
