Making your way around the Steel City has never been easier thanks to its wide array of public transport options.

Nightlife
Ecclesall Road

Slightly out of the town centre, Eccy Road as it's known locally, is a stretch of road littered with some of the trendiest bars going. If you're looking for a sophisticated afternoon sampling cocktails and tasting some delicious wines, this is the place to come. 'The Golden Mile' as it is dubbed in some circles is great for pre-drinks, but you're going to want to make your way into the city centre in the evening to well and truly kick things into gear.

Location: S11 8HW

West Street

West Street is a Sheffield night out. This is where all the action happens. The hottest bars and clubs are all located in and around here, so you'll be able to find that perfect venue to party through 'til the early hours with ease. A fab mix of classier, high-end joints and more down-to-earth party palaces it has everything you could want and more. Smack bang in the centre of town it is wonderfully convenient and, due to its close proximity, it's easy on those heels!

Location: S1 4EW

Shopaholics
Meadowhall

Meadowhall puts almost every other retail outlet in this shopaholic nation to shame and you and the girls will find it tough to go back to regular high street stores when you've experienced this mega shopping experience. You'll have to get the tram up there as it's slightly out of town, but it's quick and easy and worth the journey!

Location: Meadowhall Centre, S9 1EP (Yellow line on the tram).

High Street

If you fancy just a casual browse, then Sheffield high street has all your standard brands to help you get your shopping fix. The plus side of staying in the city centre is you can sly off for a quick bite to eat and a cocktail anytime you fancy. "I just about make it wine o'clock, ladies!"

Location: City centre S1 1QF

Hotels

Restaurants

"No, we didn't book a table in advance, but, c'mon, there're only nineteen of us! Oh, by the way, three of us are vegan, two are allergic to shellfish and one only eats meat on days that end in a 'Y'..."

Finding a place for a big group of hens that can cater for everyone's individual needs on the night is risky business. You could spend hours trudging around before you're eventually squeezed in somewhere at 10.50pm. Usually a miserable looking fast-food chain ... No thanks, not on a hen weekend you don't.

Take the hassle and worry out of the situation and let us book you a table at one of a number of amazing restaurants in this fab party city so you can relax in the knowledge that it's all taken care of.

At GoHen we can sort you:

  • Pre-paid dining
  • At a brilliant venue
