4 great stag weekend cities

OK best man, you’ve got your orders: make it a killer stag do. But first things first, choose a place that has it all.


London is one of the greatest cities in the world and it is easy to get to – trains, planes, automobiles, buses, coaches and speedboats serve the capital, so if you have folks coming from far and wide, this is a top location. There are endless clubs, bars, restaurants, strip joints, special events and hotels to choose from, but sometimes the prices are on the higher side, so you’ll probably end up paying a tad more for a pint than you would in the rest of the UK. There are budget-friendly places to stay and eat in London, however, so an itinerary can be put together with a bit of careful planning.


Bournemouth is packed with bars and there are curry houses on every corner. There are a few clubs too, and most things are concentrated in one area, which makes getting around a cinch. Then, of course, there’s the sandy beach to flop out on the morning after. And if you venture to the end of the pier, you can zip-wire your way back to shore. Accommodation can usually be booked at a reasonable nightly rate and cheap beer is easy to find.


Edinburgh offers up some unique experiences, like whiskey tasting sessions and clay pigeon shooting, and there are traditional pubs, lively clubs and plenty of places to chow down. Beer is cheap in this Scottish city and hotels are plentiful. Of course, the weather is often on the chilly side, but after a dram or two, no one will notice.


Newcastle knows how to host a stag do and there are bargain breaks to be had here. They have a comedy club if your group wants a good laugh and there’s paintballing, go karting and Segway tours to take in during the daytime – an endless choice of things to keep all the guys amused. You can’t go wrong with Newcastle.
