Birmingham has a lot to offer so if you fancy extending your party, here is a list of the 5 best things to do in Birmingham for your hen do.
1. Shopping, shopping, shopping
Birmingham has an excellent array of shops for you to browse, whether you need to find the perfect something blue or decorations for your wedding venue, you can find it here. The Bullring is the hub of the shopping experience in Birmingham. It’s unmissable. There are over 160 shops and loads of different places to eat if you get peckish on your shopping extravaganza. The city is also home to the famous jewellery quarter, which is an excellent way to find some beautiful and unique jewellery that’s not on the high street. You can also find something special for a fraction of the price. If you’re looking for a piece for the wedding, this could be the perfect opportunity! There is also a jewellery quarter museum if you’d like to find out more about this historic site.
2. Museums and Galleries
On that note, there are loads of museums and galleries in Birmingham where you can see the work of famous artists. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery houses an excellent selection of Pre-Raphaelite works including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. There’s also the Ikon Gallery, if you’re more of a modern girl, which has housed an impressive collection of contemporary art pieces from around the world since its humble beginnings in the 1960s.
Birmingham is the home of chocolate. Just outside of the main centre there is Cadbury World, a chocolatey dream that whisks you away on an adventure to an Aztec jungle, an exact replica of Bull Street where John Cadbury first opened his shop, and the largest Cadbury shop in the world. If you’re a fan of free chocolate, this could be the ideal day out.
If music is your jam, there is a special place called Hare & Hounds, that hosts a variety of different genres from funk to pop, reggae to rock. There are also other acts like burlesque, where you can learn from the masters, stand-up and vintage fairs. This venue is recommended by locals, and not to be missed!
5. Yoga and Massages
This may seem like an odd addition, but yoga at Barefoot Birmingham can be a relaxing way to get over the night before. They do beginners classes, loads of different types of yoga flows and also a special Weekend Wind Down Candlelit Yoga to help you relax and unwind. If that’s not your thing, they also do massage therapy and acupuncture! Alternatively, there are a number of spas in the centre of Birmingham that are easily accessible such as At One Day Spa, The Bannatyne Spa and The Club and Spa at The Cube.
So if you fancy one of our trips to Birmingham, why not make it an extended stay and enjoy all the city has to offer?
