If you are looking for cracking stag do packages to Nottingham go here.

First of all I have been visiting Nottingham on and off for over a decade now and to-date, I have seen the biggest transformation on this trip (I am still actually here, writing my blog from The Park Plaza bedroom, Park Plaza is one of the hotels DesignaVenture deal with, and by the way, is this the longest sentence inside brackets you have ever read?).

I cannot believe how clean the streets look, how many bars and restaurants there are and how cosmopolitan the city looks with the new Tram.

Also, one thing Nottingham is really proud of is becoming a Purple Flag owner, which basically means when you're appreciating the fantastic nightlife Nottingham has to offer, you will be able to enjoy your …

Whatever your preconceptions of England's second city are, you must to leave them on the M42 and book your stag do to Birmingham.

Birmingham has undergone and is still having a massive facelift, with more money spent on it than some countries spend in an entire year.

Following on from our  "Where on Earth is..." theme (our last one was Where on Earth is Riga looking at favourite stag do destinations in Europe), we have now moved on to mid-Europe and giving Bratislava the magnified glass treatment.

So, Where on Earth is Bratislava?

Alright don't get ratty, I am just getting to that....

Bratislava is the capital of Slovak Republic, and the Slovak Republic used to be joined to the Czech Republic which was a massive country called Czechoslovakia, a county curiously good at Ice Skating in the 80's.

Czechoslovakia was broken up in 1993, so Czech Republic divorced from Slovak Republic or Slovakia as many maps refer to it, the capital of Slovak Republic is Bratislava.

That's great and everything, but where the hell is it?

Twin Centre Stag Do Ideas

Going on a stag do is all about exploring new destinations and a great way to make a decent adventure out of your weekend is to visit two destinations on the same stag do.

Whether you're going on a stag do abroad or in the UK there are plenty of destinations you can twin up on your stag do.

On my stag do we did Bristol and Newquay, visiting Bristol on the Thursday and then travelling to Newquay on the Friday for 2 nights of pure pleasure, two very different but brilliant experiences.

Enough about me, there are other top stag destinations in the UK you can do this in, such as:

Cardiff and Bristol Newcastle and EdinburghBournemouth and BrightonReading and BirminghamManchester and LiverpoolChester and North Wales
Your first night should be a destination on the way down to your main destination, breaking up the journey and having a night out before the big stag weekend starts.

You may find only half the group can commit to it, but hey you could make it exclusive to your close mates?
