Stag Nights and Weekends in UK

What goes on tour, stays on tour


It's now pretty common for a UK stag party to last for more than one evening, hence the increase of stag weekends. It seems as if the event gets longer and longer with every new generation! And there's been a massive growth in the stag weekend industry with various companies taking the "hassle" out of the stag do . But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.


Since you're on our site we assume you need to think about the stag weekend. That's going to include everything from setting the date and location, organising the activities and entertainment, and of course keeping the groom somewhere between sober and hammered. This site focuses on the best ideas for things to do as well as things to buy to liven up the UK stag do.

When the cats away, the mice will play

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including white water rafting, Surfing, Tank driving, and Zorbing. Sometimes the best man just likes to organise the activity alone, and create a huge surprise for everyone, but we recommend involving the whole group, if for nothing more than ensuring people bring the right clothing!

Not all of these are available in UK so you may want to consider other locations. When the cats away, the mice will play

Get ready for a great UK stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!

The fun should absolutely not stop after the day activities, those are just the warm up act! It's a very long tradition to get the stag completely hammered, but please make sure you drink responsibly - no-one likes to throw up and accidents can happen when there's too much booze on the go.

But of course there other options from taking in a little bit of comedy, sitting down and actually eating a decent meal (!!!) and of course the almost compulsory strip club.

A sober stag is like a car with no petrol


Here are some top tips for planning and running your UK stag weekend or stag party.


On the big night, make sure that you keep the stag conscious. It's very easy, in the excitement of the night, to push more and more beer in the stag's direction, only to find out that at 9pm he's literally under the table, unable to carry on. That's not the kind of fun that he, or anyone else really wants. So pace the evening, keep an eye on what the other guests are pouring, and make sure he has the night of his life!

And please please please make sure that you and the other guests know that it's entirely inappropriate to talk about the specifics of the stag at any point during the wedding, even if you're certain no-one else is listening.


It wasn't long ago that a stag weekend outside of the UK was seen as incredibly unusual, but with the arrival of cheap international flights (as well as the Eurostar) it's almost normal.  And there are certainly some unusual stag weekends possible, further away than UK!

If you plan well, then the groom should have an absolutely fun-filled UK stag weekend including the best ways to embarrass the stag or groom, fun games to play on a stag do, great costumes for a stag weekend in UK.


It doesn't matter if you want a quieter and more refined evening or a big big big night out with everyone you've ever met in UK with a no-holds-barred attitude to everything fun you can think of, maybe you now have some fuel for the ideas.

You never forget a brilliant stag night and the UK has some amazing towns for partying - from London and Manchester to Leeds, Liverpool and Edinburgh.

Oh, and one more thing. Remember that you have a responsibility to get the stag home.
