Norwich has class, style and plenty of places to find a drink once you're done exploring all the terrific town.
The flatlands of Norfolk are easy to navigate, with no traipsing up hills to get to that perfect bar. Luckily, you're a spoiled group of hens in this part of the country and cosy pubs, craft beer joints and swish cocktail lounges are all on offer.
Queen Street is a hen-friendly place to start, and from here you're within walking distance of lengthy wine lists and smashing 2-for-1 deals.
Friars Quay is where it's AT for the traditional pub vibe. Riverside beer gardens? Yes please!
Near all the cool museums you'll find the Castle Quarter which is hot-bed for bars if you fancy a break from retail exhaustion.
Children of the 90's might remember the film The Secret Garden and on your hen-do, you'll discover one for yourselves! Plantation Garden is a wonderful natural space that's stood for over 100 years in an abandoned quarry. This is a tranquil safe-haven away from the hustle and bustle of city living, and seeing as it's centrally located, any hens still feeling the previous evening's excesses can rest assured that sun-lit relaxation is never too far away (depending on the weather!).
If you're looking for a club from the future then stop searching because you've found it! Wonderland is a seriously high-tech party spot that looks as if it was designed by the Mad Hatter, in a good way. This is one rabbit hole we certainly recommend you fall down...just don't refer to the bouncers as Tweedledum and Tweedledee!
Mantra is often the club of choice for Norwich's glitterati and local celebrities. The fabulous oriental-chic décor is a stylish touch, and when the night gets going, the party atmosphere is simply palpable.
