The Best UK Destinations for a Stag Weekend

Organizing a stag do is an honour bestowed upon the best man but choosing where to go usually has plenty of input from all those invited. There may be budget restrictions, people not wanting to go abroad and many other considerations. Thankfully the UK has a plethora of great locations to hold a stag do.

Whether you’re after an action-packed weekend, seeking out the funniest activities possible or just want a cracking night out, there’s somewhere ideal for each of these. Inclusive packages are available at mostor it’s easy enough to organise yourself.


Down on the south coast, Bournemouth is an excellent stag do destination, especially in summer. Along with the fabulous beach there’s everything from shooting ranges, fishing trips and the great nightlife to experience. The Stag and Hen Experience offer packages catering to various desires in Bournemouth, including standard activities to all the novelties expected, such as human table football.

North Wales

For a more adventurous stag do north Wales and the surrounding area has plenty to offer. Get out into the countryside if you’re after some quad biking fun or a calmer weekend going camping and hiking in the hills. There are still various towns around to go for a few relaxing drinks and some quality food afterwards.


Not a weekend goes by when there aren’t at least five stag dos going on in the North-East city. Its reputation for being a great night out is well-founded and it’s also one of the cheapest places in the UK. Close to the coast and with Northumberland not too far away you can get involved in various activities such as paintballing, go karting and of course round it all off with a bar crawl.


Yes, London may be the most expensive city in the UK but it is also the largest with plenty to do. From the countless bars and restaurants to comedy clubs, casinos, theatres and many other activities, it’s got it all. Plus it’s easy to get to if everyone in the party is based across the nation.


Cheaper than London and a lot more manageable due to its smaller size, Edinburgh has a great balance of culture and chaos to kick off any stag do. The Royal Mile is excellent for drinking throughout the day and night, while there are nearby golf courses, paintballing sites and more to enjoy before getting on the whiskey.
