Reasons to Visit
Another Midlands marvel, a Derby Hen Do is one of those options that many people would not necessarily consider straightaway, but this city is a great location for any Hen do. Easily accessible from most places in the UK both by rail and road, this City can boast a fantastic variety of accommodation, activities, restaurants and nightlife to cater for all tastes.
It’s full of things to see and do, whether you’re interested in the history of the city, which stretches from the Roman era to it being known as the birthplace of the industrial revolution or whether you’re more interested in the large shopping centre, packed with household names. Derby has everything you would ever need for a hen do, with activities and nightlife galore. If you have any downtime during your hen do, why not take a walk-through Derby’s Arboretum Park, a listed park which is said to have been inspiration for the world-famous Central Park in New York, a great way to blow off the cobwebs and get over that hangover from the previous evening’s festivities.
Where to Stay?
Accommodation options for your Derby Hen Do are many and varied. In fact, our catalogue of places to stay comprises of everything from Guest Houses, B&B’s and budget chain hotels right up to Five Star hotels and luxurious self catering apartments. This huge array of options means that we can offer great flexibility for any Derby Hen Do, whether you are concerned with keeping to a budget or just looking to live the luxurious life.
A hugely important part of any accommodation is ensuring that it is located close to where you want to be. After all, you don’t want to be spending half an hour or more in a taxi to get back to your hotel when you’ve been out drinking, do you? It is with this in mind that we have tailored our list of accommodation options to ensure you are brilliantly well located.
The selection of activities you are able to incorporate into your Derby Hen Do is huge. We have over seventy five options (at the time of writing), so no matter what type of activity you are after, there will be plenty for you to choose from. If your group are competitive and love to show off, then the immediate recommendation would be the RuPaul’s Drag Race Lip Sync Extravaganza. You’ll get to glide down the runway guided by professional tuition, learn some choreography for whichever anthem you choose to tackle, before splitting into two teams for a classic Lip Sync battle.
Alternatively, if your group are a bit less drama queens and a bit more adrenaline junkies, why not tool up and tackle mother nature in a big bad way by trying out some white water rafting? Up to six of you on an inflatable raft, all working together to try and tackle the sheer lunacy that is river rapids. Hope you don’t mind getting wet!
That’s just two of the popular Derby Hen Do activity options, there are countless others (as you can see in the links below) - activities such as Olympic Shames, Cocktail making, Dance Classes, Pamper Days, a trip to the races and more are all easily available at the drop of a hat, ensuring that you can have a tailor made Derby Hen Do to suit exactly what you are after.
The fun doesn’t stop once you get to the nightlife either – in fact, as with any good hen do, it ratchets up a notch. We’d recommend grabbing something to eat before you start to explore the local drinking establishments (as it’s always good to have something lining your stomach before drinking), and there are plenty of cuisine options for you to choose from.
Once you are satiated and ready to go, then it’s time to head out in the famous Friar’s Gate area. This is the main hub of Derby’s nightlife, and is populated by a huge array of places to have a great time. You might be the sort of group who likes the idea of a quiet drink in a local pub before you get started, and there are plenty of those to pick from. Alternatively, if your Derby Hen Do is the type that just wants to hit the ground running, why not visit one of the popular chain pubs (which always have amazingly good drinks offers) and enjoy a few drinks there before heading out to explore the posher cocktail bars.
Once you’ve finished touring all of the pubs and bars you fancy, then the next logical step is to find a nightclub. Again, Derby has no shortage of these, with nightclubs that play all kinds of music available. If your Derby Hen Do are after some terrible cheesy music to dance through the night to, there is a club for that. If you’d prefer some high quality popular dance music, there are options for that as well.
In short, a Derby Hen Do is an absolute hoot. This city has everything you could possibly want for a hen do and a lot more besides. No matter what your budget, your requirements or your desired ideas, a Derby Hen Do will be able to give you everything you want. Are you intrigued?
