What to do
You might be going to a specific stag destination to take part in particular activities. For example, visiting the Lake District to go shooting, mountain biking or going out on a boat during the day, before you and your mates retreat to a lakeside pub for the evening.
When it comes to what to do during your stag party, there are plenty of different activities to choose from.
Driving– You could spend a morning on a track, like go-karting or going for a spin in a sports car. This is a great adrenaline-fuelled way to kick off any stag party.
Axe throwing– Think darts, but with axes. This is a great way to get more competitive and have fun. It can include tournaments and mini-games with prizes. Much like a track day, this is a brilliant way to kick off your stag party.
Arcades– Gaming is a massive billion-dollar industry, and a popular pastime. This has led to the rise of the ‘barcade’ – an arcade, crossed with a bar. From classic games to VR experiences, this can be a great way to have fun as a group.
Whatever you think about doing, talk to the stag first. Find out what they’d like to do and try to find a way to incorporate it into the day. Keep in mind that some activities like axe throwing and track days, you can’t do if you’ve been drinking, so try to organise your day to squeeze in as much in as possible.
Depending on what activities you have in mind, it might be worth looking at where the stag party sits in relation to the wedding. For instance, if you’re planning a potentially dangerous outdoor pursuits weekend, think about having this well in advance of the wedding to reduce the chance of any potential injuries ruining the wedding.
