Trending Locations and Activities for your Stag Party

By Freedomltd

Live a life less ordinary, tweak the nipples of destiny and behold the principle reasons to be beerful.

We’re here to help, well, actually we know a ‘man who can’. We asked Mike from Freedom (the daddy of stag party planning, with over 20 years in the game) for his advice in terms of what’s trending now, where to go and what to do.

In true Oscar style, the nominations for the trending stag do destinations are...


Whey aye man it’s a reet party toon. Yes those Geordies know how to party. Sup up there’s special drinks offers at the Bigg Market, Newkie Brown is compulsory. The swanky amongst you can head down to the Quayside, loads of variety of drinking and eating establishments. Newcastle stag weekends has won its top spot by offering an almost obscene choice of activities. Make sure your Ant and Dec inspired Saturday Night Takeaway includes the Newcastle clubscene.


Flights booked, aviators on, things could get Messi. Barcelona stag weekends have it all, the lure of a major city combined effortlessly with beach culture for a pulsating party. ‘Stagfistication’ is guaranteed with catamaran cruises, tickets booked to the Nou Camp and San Miguel all round. Fuel up on tapas before embracing the late night Spanish party scene.


All set for the Bourne Ultimatum of stag weekends? This is the real deal, not like Donald Trumps’ hair. Bournemouth stag weekends combine sun, surf and bucket loads of South Coast bars. With an intoxicating mix of adrenaline-fuelled activities combined with a nightlife to rival all contenders is music to your stag planning ears. Bournemouth’s best bits include white knuckle power boat racing and Beer Babe bar crawls … where they get the drinks in and look after your every need (well almost).


Party mad and proud, with the cheapest beers on the Costa Blanca, Benidorm is a binge weekend on steroids. Exclusive home to the ‘Sticky Vicki’ show, your Benidorm stag weekend will provide a rockstar lifestyle on a lemonade income.


Home to Robin Hood and his merry (stag do revelling) men, it’s clear why Nottingham is well endowed in the stag activity department. ‘Probably’ the best centre anywhere in the country is in Sherwood Forest, offering a mega choice of testosterone fuelled activities for the petrol heads and adrenalin seekers alike. Nottingham stag weekends also boast an easy-to-get-to location with quality hotel accommodation and intoxicating nightlife. Much of the stag party action happens within the rejuvenated Lace Market / Hockley area, so that’s where you need to be.

Those scoring most points in the stag do activity ideas version of Fantasy League would be...

Goofy Games/MegMix/Crazy Gang, why settle for one activity when you can have more? The rise in multiple activities is no surprise, however, stags are pushing the boundaries, with a new frontier of alternative activities on offer.

Bubble Football took the stag party business by storm a couple of years ago and has fathered the massively popular Electric Shock and Beer Goggle Football.

Sometimes you’ve just got to flirt with danger and laugh in the waiting room of A&E. If life has become a little too comfortable, maybe it’s time for the physically bruising, mentally challenging Zombie Boot Camp or get “down and dirty" with 2 hot babes and one scared stag, as they challenge him to a Mud Wrestling match. The odds aren't in his favour though; two against one, could be every man's dream? This will be the perfect Kodak moment for the best man’s speech!
