Full Throttle Stag Dos

Image
We were horrified when the news broke that Jordan, aka Katie Price, had bought an awesome Bugatti Veyron and was then committing the ultimate insult to the hypercar by have it pinked up, inside and out.
It might be your Top Gear wet dream to own one of those babies (the car, not Jordan!) or even drive one, but let’s be honest, you’d never get too fast and too furious for fear of dinking it. If you’re the type that cringes if the bus pulls too closely into the lane next to you, then our stag do driving activities are a great way for you to not only build up your driving confidence, but jump into a vehicle that is actually specially designed to be thrown around. Forget the supercar raceday, your stag do needs to be full throttle, off road rally driving. Throw a real car into corners, handbrake all the turns, blast through the water, but always take the advice of your pre-race tuition expert and for heaven’s sake remember you’re not in that car on the way home.If you want to feel a bit m…

Top 5 UK Stag Do Destinations

Image
Every time I tell people what I do the first question they ask me is "where are the best places to go on a stag do?"

This is a difficult question to answer as it usually depends on what you want to do on your stag weekend.

However, if you are wanting to know the top 5 UK stag destinations for 2011; according to a popular stag do company's figures, here are the top 5 in no particular order:

Newquay is an obvious answer is it does so well out of stag dos in the summer and is usually packed with hen parties too, giving it a unbelievable atmosphere.

Keeping with the seaside theme Bournemouth is extremely busy with stag weekends looking for good beaches, fantastic stag do activities and nightlife so electric you could plug your phone charger in and get a full charge.

Bristol doesn't seem to be an obvious answer but once you get there you will realise why. Fantastic nightlife, more daytime activities then you can shake a stick at (what does that saying mean??) and top quali…

FEELING HOT HOT HOT!

Fed up of the British summer? Me too, and that’s why stags dos have a better chance of some fun in the sun with packages to easily accessible destinations like Spain, the Algarve and even Bulgaria. Currently the temperatures are pretty hot, hot, hot and so are the deals, with Spain offering the most choice of resorts, all catering to the stag night crowd. The TV comedy of the same name has boosted the popularity of Benidorm, which remains a firm stag weekend favourite and no wonder;
There is plenty to do in and around the resort including water and theme parks, jeep safaris, catamaraning, paintballing the beaches and of course an abundance of wicked bars and clubs.
To maintain your staying power, Brits can feel at home with the old fry up and fast food, but there’s no shortage of hip restaurants with all sorts of world cuisine. For a more rambunctious dining experience let your stag night partake of the medieval banquet, or combine dinner with a lucky night at the casino. If you hit t…

Nothing Normal About A Stag Do In Reading

We’ve known for a while that most stag dos just aren’t normal, so DesignaVenture has created some stag do activity combos to accommodate you mentalists in outrageous style. Let’s start with the water sports. We know you’re all big kids when it comes to the wet stuff and this time DesignaVenture are pulling the plug on anything standard to bring you Bath-tubs, Boats and Bananas package. To kick off, the boat isn’t a traditional boat. Think of this more as a Scrap Heap Challenge moment, as you’ll be building your own vessel and attempting to race it to the finish. No engineering skills required though, as this craft will be made of cardboard (yes, we know, but it is special cardboard), plastic and the like and then you’ll paddle like fury before you get that sinking feeling.Fortunately the inflatable banana bullet is not so fruity and you’ll be wildly bouncing in the wake of a powerful speed boat as you rodeo your way over the waves.The bath-tub racing concept is as mentally vexing as…
