Stag Do Ideas In Reading

Reading is a gem of a destination for your stag do, let's see why...

Well my friends, some people don't want to travel half way around the world to enjoy their stag do, they want to stay closer to home and enjoy some fantastic stag activities and a great night out or two to boot.

Reading is no stranger to fantastic stag do activities, it is also home to some amazing unique ones too.

Usual Suspects

Reading has the usual activities covered, such as Paintball, Rage Buggies, Paintball, Quad Biking, Indoor Karts etc. and let's make no bones about it these activities are popular because doing 1, 2 or 3 of the above mentioned activities on your stag do will get your group buzzed up for the night out.

The Rage Buggies drive up to 58mph, the acceleration will push you back in your seat and as you are so low to the floor it will feel like a 158mph!

There is an incredible site approximately 30 - 40 minutes drive from the centre of Reading which has all the above usual suspects plus many more, making it worth a visit for half or even a full day.

Unusual Suspects

Do you want to...

Make a boat out of cardboard?
Race motorised beer kegs around a race track?
Learn to wakeboard?
Race Hovercrafts?
Play football inside Zorb Balls?
Race bathtubs?
Race segways?

In Reading you can...

There are simply too many unique and unusual activities to mention, check out our Reading stag activity ideas page for more details.

"So we have your daytime activities sorted now, where can you rest your head?"

Well, in the centre of Reading there are some fantastic 4 star hotels offering luxury accommodation at a rate you just won't quibble. If you would prefer to save even more money there are some 2 and 3 star hotels which are all city centre, all clean and tidy, all happy to welcome stag parties - happy days.

At night there are loads of bars and clubs to visit and if you like Comedy, Saturday night is Comedy night in one of the big clubs in town. There is also a late night gentleman's club and loads of restaurants around the Oracle and city centre - see here for eating at the Oracle.

So if you fancy somewhere closer to home, or want to do some fantastic unique activities, Reading is a great choice for your stag weekend.

Stag Do T-Shirt Ideas


It's no surprise that stag do t-shirts are big business, in fact it's HUGE!

These days, most stag dos go away with a t-shirt packed, it becomes their travelling uniform whether it's on a plane or going to the activities or even going out at night, to some stag parties the stag do t-shirt is an essential item of clothing.

The stag do t-shirt also acts as a momento / souvenir for the stag do and usually must consist of the following 3 items of written information:

  1. Where 
  2. When
  3. Name of the stag

So with that in mind here are some great ideas on what type of t-shirts you could go for:

The Photo T-Shirt
Using an embarrassing image of the stag, make sure it's blown up and printed onto everyone's t-shirt, better still get a picture of his bride-to-be and do the same.

Go one step further and get a picture of an ex girlfriend or better still, a picture of his mother-in-law, the possibilities are endless!

The T-shirt with the Slogan
The slogan is meant to amuse and sometimes shock, this slogan can sometimes includes the stag's name, so to help me out with this section, let's call the stag "Dave", here are a few slogan ideas:

I'm A Beautician Not A Magician Sex & Drugs And Sausage Rolls On It Till We Vomit
Dave's Wolfpack
Dave Mate, Its Game Over Mate
I'm Looking Forward To Regretting This
Next Stop, Nappy Central
The Good, The Stag And The Ugly

There are loads of slogans to choose from, be original and create a slogan which is totally unique to the stag or his bride-to-be.

The Logo T-Shirt
This involves taking a famous logo and personalising it with the stag's name or making it humorous, for example, Star Wars becomes Stag Wars, Top Gear becomes Top Stag, Lord Of the Rings becomes Slave of the Rings - I think you get the picture.

The Number T-Shirt
A Hierarchy of stag do members, with the stag being number 1 and best man number 2 and so on. The number is usually on the back like a football top with the name or nickname of the wearer above the number.

The Dare T-Shirt
This involves a list of dares with a tick box which can be ticked off as and when these dares have been completed. These dares can include; Serenade someone your don't know, Drink 3 Shots, Blow Kisses To Strangers etc.

If you have any ideas on stag t-shirts or you have seen some crackers that have made you laugh out loud please let us know via the comments box below and we will add them to our list.

To be continued....

The Great Welsh Outdoors - Stag Do Ideas


Binge drinking is now on the decrease, more and more people are getting their highs from activities, stag dos are no different.

Stags these days want their stag weekend to be a challenge, adrenaline enthused and exciting, there will obviously be a few pints in the evening however, the day must be full of adventure. Whether it's motorised, getting soaked or scaring the living daylights out of each other there is so much adventure to choose from and the king of adventure in the UK is North Wales.

There is no better stag do destination than North Wales for adventurous activities. You can either stay in North Wales or you can drive from Chester, Manchester or Liverpool.

Quite simply, North Wales offers simply epic activities for the stag who's an adrenaline junkie.

Did you know that North Wales has the longest Zip Wire in Europe? You can reach up to 100 mph and cruise over some of the finest scenery you will ever see - Ouch!

North Wales also offers 2 fantastic white water rafting destinations, one near Bala and the other close to Llangollen. In my mind the best location is near Llangollen, the instructors are loads of fun and your stag will go for a swim, guaranteed!

Around Llangollen and staying with white water, you can also book two seater white water rafting and white water paddle boarding.

Moving towards Shropshire you have one of the best quad biking treks in the UK, covering a ruck of acres before climbing one of the highest hills in Shropshire. On a clear day you can see up to 7 counties.

Staying motorised there is also a killer Rage Buggy site, where you will get plenty of driving time in these crazy all terrain buggies. With speeds of unto 58mph there is not wonder why they are so popular.

Canyoning is another activity which will give you the heebie jeebies. Jumping off high ledges into deep pools, flying down natural water slides and exploring caves this is an amazing activity which will keep the adventurous stag more than happy.

You then have another site on the North Wales Shropshire borders offering Hovercrafts and Segways, unique activities perfect for a Sunday morning before heading home.

These are just some of the activities on offer in North Wales, so if you have an stag who is really into the outdoors and activities that will scare the living crap out of yourselves, then North Wales is the place to be.

On our website we have many packages staying in group accommodation (as most stags would prefer to spend most of their budget on the activities), however we offer other types of accommodation.

Head over to the DesignaVenture North Wales stag do section of our website for more details.
