Stag Do Destination Guide: Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a totally brilliant UK stag do destination, a party town with incredible nightlife, activities and accommodation, it's no wonder Bournemouth is one of DesignaVenture's top UK destinations and they offer loads of brilliant stag do packages, weekend and nights to this epic seaside town.

Pointless Uninteresting (but secretly interesting) Facts About Bournemouth

You better believe it people, Bournemouth is a fantastic place to celebrate your stag do, the bars and clubs are fairly laid back and there are lots of them explore.

Old Christchurch Road is where you'll find bars such as Walkabouts, Yates and Bar Republiq, you also find lots of great restaurants and eateries along this road it's is a great place to start the night.

There are quite a few nightclubs in Bournemouth with Cameo being the biggest and largest night club, with 4 floors of bars and dance floors. Cameo is also home to Bournemouth's only Comedy Club.

Lap dancing clubs include Spearmint Rhinos, Wiggle and For Your Eyes Only - at DesignaVenture we only use Spearmint Rhinos for our stag parties as we only receive brilliant feedback from our customers.

Eating is cheating shouldn't be a saying in Bournemouth as it has some incredible curry houses, Chinese eateries and banging British restaurants - a good stag weekend should include at least one sit down meal, a calm before the storm.

If the stag loves to bet there are several casinos


You name an activity Bournemouth offer's it...


 OK, apart from Curling I am pretty sure Bournemouth has it all...


Oh shut up!

Within reason, here are some stag do activities on offer in Bournemouth, you'll (hopefully) agree with me it's quite impressive:
  • Rage Buggies
  • Quad Biking
  • Paintball
  • Coasteering
  • Paintball
  • Zip Wire
  • Power Boating
  • .22 Assault Rifle Shooting
  • Human Table Football
  • Footgolf
  • Bubble Football
  • Clay Pigeon Shooting
  • Axe Throwing
  • Indoor Karts
  • Etc.
I put etc. because I kind of got bored - for a full list head over to our Bournemouth stag do activities page where you'll find a full list of activities along with details and prices.

Alternatively if you went to the DesignaVenture Build Your Own section, you can build your own stag do -  pricing it up using lots of different activity, nightlife and accommodation options - it's the only stag website you can do this without having to part with any of your personal information.

There are also some brilliant activity sites in Bournemouth where you can do loads of activities in one place, activities include; paintball, rage buggies, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting etc.

You're stag party will be full of different people, some will like racing buggies, others will prefer to shoot guns, so booking a multi activity day like our popular Rage Buggies, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Human Table Football and Blindfold Driving is a good call.


You're not going to be disappointed with accommodation choices in Bournemouth, from basic budget hotels to 4 star properties with pools. 

However a word of warning, booking a B&B and not telling them you're a stag party or telling them your a golfing party can cause problems and may see your weekend turn to dust if they refuse your group on arrival.

Be upfront and in my mind stay clear of the dodgy B&B's, leave them for the families and old people. There are plenty of hotels in Bournemouth that accept stag parties, who wants to stay somewhere where you're not wanted?

In peak season you may struggle to find hotel which would allow a 1 night stay. DesignaVenture use a few hotels that allow 1 night stays however there are only a handful so book early (peak season being April to September).

So if the stag wants to stay in the UK then I would highly recommend Bournemouth from nightlife to activities, Bournemouth has it all.

Good luck
