The Best Ways of Getting The Hen Party To Birmingham

So its decided then you are all going to Birmigham on a hen party this year, and everything is planned and booked. Maybe you have decided to go for one of our Hen Party Packages, or have decided to try out one of our brilliant activites in the city? Either way we here at Chic are eager to help you put on the best send off ever because we are based in Birmingham ourselves. So this week we have produced a article that is designed to help you get all the hens to the party as quickly and easily as possible. 

 

 THE BEST WAYS OF GETTING The hen party to Birmingham 

Well first off you are in luck. Birmingham is England's second city and because of this the city itself has numerous transport links and the hen's journey should (in theory) go off without a hitch. There are 4 main ways of getting to the city road, rail, coach and maybe even plane. 

Getting to birmingham by road 

Due to its industrial past Birmingham has great road links and is the heart of the motorway network.  The M6 , M5, M40 and M42 all converge on Birmingham and the surronding areas.  The Aston Express way leads straight off the M6 into the city centre via the famous Spagetti Junction.  If you are coming from the south east the M1 is just 30 minutes away. Also travelling by road is a great way to prepare for that hen night ahead, especially if you have planned a themed dance class activity or just want to rehearse for a great karaoke night.

Parking 

Once you are here you will need to park and Birmingham has over 25000 city centre car parking spaces. Most of the hotels we use have onsite parking ordiscounted parking arrangements with a nearby car park.  If you book a Hen Party Package with Chic your personal party planner will provide you with the hotels car parking post code in your itinary.  If you would like more information on the best places to park we recommend reading this helpful article in the Birmingham Mail.

Useful Tools When Travelling By Car 

If you and all the hen' are driving to Birmingham, please find below two really usefull tools Chic recommend to help your journey be stress free. 

Route Planner Tool 

Use AA Route planner to plan your Journey http://www.theaa.com/route-planner/index.jsp  simply put your postcode in the "From" and your hotels parking postcode (Chic will provide this in your Itinerary) or Birmingham in the "To" box. Press get route and off you go.

 Split The Fuel Cost 

Journey Price is a fantastic tool that allows you to work out roughly how much you petrol bill to get to Birmingham will be and it even splits it up into price per person or per hen shall we say http://journeyprice.co.uk.

Getting The Hens There By Train

Birmingham probably has the best rail connections in the UK second only to London so getting a train to the heart of the city shouldn’t be too hard. There are 3 main stations New Street (which has just had a massive refurb), Snow Hill, and Moor Street. All of these train stations are based around the city centre.

On average we tend to find trains to Moor Street and Snow Hill are a little cheaper. When planning your train journey we recommend using http://www.nationalrail.co.uk.  Book your train tickets early to save money ladies.

Hen Waiting for Train In Birmingham

 

Getting there  by coach 

Lots of people when organsing the transport for the big hen do tend to overlook the coach option. Its a common mistake and travelling by coach is allways worth looking into, especially when getting to Birmingham. There is a major coach sation about 15 minute walk from the Bullring in Dibeth.  National Express runs a service from here to over 1200 mainland destinations and there is also an hourly service to London's Vicotria Station. 

 

Getting there by plane 

We assume not many people will be jetting in but if this is the case Birmingham Internation Airport is just a 10 minute direct train link to the city center. It is a great option to consider, a journey from Edinburgh for instance can cost under £50 and only takes 50 minutes.
