Top 5 British Stag Destinations


Before any man can enter marriage it is imperative he is treated to a night out that he will never forget or remember depending on how you look at it.

Although the ideal for many Stag groups is to pack up their suitcases, book the flights and head overseas for a fun filled weekend it is worthwhile remembering that a great stag do can be had without the need for your passport.

There are countless destinations in England, Wales and Scotland that can offer something memorable and truly special for the rite of passage from bachelor to a loving husband.

Having recently been given the privilege of being a best man for my friend’s upcoming wedding I was given the responsibility to arrange the stag party with help from some of his other friends. After careful consideration we chose our destination and activities to act as the rite of passage from bachelorhood. However with so many fantastic destinations and stag activities available it was easy to become overwhelmed and because of this many best men offload all of the responsibilities to an external ‘stag do’ planning company. While external planners are a great time saver and stress reliever they come at a higher cost, therefore if you are after the best prices I would suggest shopping around by yourself.

To help other best-men who are feeling the pressure of organising such a big night out below I have highlighted 5 of the best UK stag destinations to visit for a great night out or a weekend away with the rest of the lads. So with no more delay here is my countdown to the top 5 British Stag Destinations.

1)     London – The capital of England also referred to as ‘the big smoke’ is ideal for a stag party exuberating sophistication. It plays host to an array of cocktail bars, unique venues and top European nightclubs such as KOKO and Pacha. On the other hand if you are looking for a top laugh then Lucky Voice Soho will be the perfect venue for your stag party. Here you can enjoy a sing along to your favourite songs in your very own private karaoke room. LuckyVoice.com Soho Bars is definitely worth a visit if belting a few ‘epic tunes’ with the lads’ sounds like a good idea.

2)     Newcastle – The self-proclaimed party capital of the North East, Newcastle is a city that won’t disappoint. The sensational night life needs no introduction and as seen on the popular MTV show Geordie Shore it has the potential for one ‘messy’ night out. In addition to the great night scene there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied throughout the day such as the stag do favourites like paintballing and quad biking.

3)     Cardiff- The capital of Wales is a destination that can offer something for every type of stag do, regardless to whether that is a relaxed drink, adrenaline fuelled activities or a booze fuelled night hitting the clubs. Unlike traditional stag destinations, Cardiff can offer something completely unique through activities such as Dune Sliding, Wake Boarding and Surfing.

4)     Blackpool – Tagged as the Las Vegas of the North of England, Blackpool is a destination for thousands of stag parties every year. If you enjoy a flutter then you can try your hand at a casino evening and experience the thrill of playing the gaming tables. In addition, this ‘cheesy town’ plays host to the fantastic Blackpool Pleasure Beach however I would suggest that the theme park is visited prior to a night on the town because a hangover and spinning tea cups don’t mix very well.

5)     Edinburgh – The Athens of the North, also known as Edinburgh, is a great option for your stag adventure. With the sound of bagpipes in the air this popular destination combines a vast array of history and heritage with a diverse selection of traditional pubs. The city is renowned for its friendliness and has a great nightlife. After a night out, the hangover is guaranteed to be eased the following day by the beautiful scenery.
