Stag Nights and Weekends in UK

Because there's nothing better than a great stag do


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! To take advantage in this rise in popularity, there are now many stag busineses dedicated to making things easier for the best man. But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.


If you're looking for stag weekend ideas, you need to think about the location, what the stag might have to wear (fancy dress makes it all the funnier), and of course the activities - not just the fun and games, but also the food and drink. Our site will help you think through the weekend and give you tips on all the things to think about for the UK stag do.

The key ingredients are the stag, best man, alcohol, fun and some girls

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including Paintballing, Powerboating, Quad bikes, Rally driving and assult courses. Although extreme activity can be great fun, it's definitely a good idea to have a chat with the stag in advance, just to get a sense of what he'd like to do.

Not all of these are available in UK so you may want to consider other locations. Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?

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! For many years the sum total of a stag event would be a trip to a pub. The more exciting ones might include a tour of several.

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.

Party hard, and laugh endlessly


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


If you're organising quite a few people, and you're sensibly planning well in advance, it can be hard to get firm commitments from people. It's a really good idea to give an estimation of costs upfront. If the weekend is going to cost a fair bit, you need to know whether you'll end up excluding some people. And if you are getting the guests to make their own bookings (flight, hotel, etc) then make sure you keep reminding them to get on with it.

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!

We have a long list of fun things to do on a UK stag weekend including a few quick and easy games to play along the way (alongside a few standard drinking games), good ideas for fancy dress and of course some embarrassing stories - all important factors for your great stag break in UK.


Whatever the scale of your event, from a close group of friends to an all our party experience in UK with everything completely over the top and entirely unsuitable to share on Facebook, then hopefully you have some extra ideas now.

If you're thinking of a little wilder experience you might want to try places like Talin, Budapest or Prague - they have lots to offer and are pretty good value.

Oh, and one more thing. Please remember to drink responsibly.
