Top UK Stag Destinations For 2014

January is a busy month for DesignaVenture, not only do we get loads of stag do enquiries our stags are booking like mad for 2014.

So where in the UK are our stags looking to party?

Well my faithful friends let me tell you, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Nottingham, Newquay and Bristol are taking the majority of our hits, and our stags are booking anything from racing rage buggies, to actually going to the races!

Other destinations such as Edinburgh, Birmingham, Chester and Manchester have also seen a huge increase in enquiries and sales.

Take Chester for instance, why are stags booking their weekends and nights here?

Good question, and one I am about to answer, Chester is literally 45 minutes drive from loads of brilliant activities (mainly based in North Wales), activities such as white water rafting, hovercraft racing, rage buggy racing, canyoning, clay pigeon shooting the list is endless.

And by night, Chester is sophisticated, bars and clubs are lively but not outrageous which may suits some of our stag parties but will not suit others.

There's an important point to be made here, in many large cities like Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester and Edinburgh you will have the choice to either go to the crazy clubs or hang out in quieter bars and clubs, so these destinations you should consider when booking a large or mixed stag do.

So you can, go crazy Friday night and sit down and chill Saturday night, pleasing everyone!

If you are looking for a stag destination by the sea - to give you that seaside stag experience (whatever that is!) then Bournemouth and Newquay should be top of your list.

Let's start with Newquay

Over the years Newquay has transformed into a really lively town, and when the sun is shinning you could be anywhere in Southern Europe.

Nestled on two amazing beaches, Newquay has some of the best surfing in the world (that is no exaggeration), with the constant North Atlantic rollers, everyday is a surfer's paradise. Surfing is a fantastic stag do activity and will bond the boys together 'like no nails'.

You also have other incredible stag do activities which can make your stag do unique including; coasteering, the extremely funny Cornish Challenge, Deep Sea Fishing and Jet Skiing.


With it's own weather system, Bournemouth boasts more sunshine then anywhere else in the UK. With 8 miles of white sandy beaches you have a great place to hang out when the sun is shinning.

However, you won't be doing much hanging out in the day if you take advantage of some of the great activities on offer.

It's a knockout, Quad Bike Mega Treks, Rifle Shooting, Rage Buggy Racing - Bournemouth is a real boys toys destination.

At night the clubs and bars are banging, head to Old Christchurch Road for the liveliest bars and clubs in town or take a short walk to Boscombe or grab a cab to Poole for a different scene.

The UK has masses of destinations that would suit your stag party, whether you are looking for a lively weekend, a weekend of relaxation or a bit of both, I am sure that this Island will deliver.
