Why Choose A UK Stag Do
There are a huge amount of pros when having your stag do in the UK including the familiarity factor, language, no currency exchanges needed, passport not required etc. However there are some other REALLY important factors which also need to be considered and not just, I can get a pint for £2.99 in Wetherspoons.....
The UK offers a wide range of destinations to suit different preferences and interests. From vibrant cities like London, Nottingham, Bristol, Manchester, Cardiff or Edinburgh to beautiful countryside locations such as North Wales, South Wales, Herefordshire, Shropshire, The Lakes and The Highlands there are plenty of options to choose from.
You can either tailor your activities around your city or choose your stag destination around activities, for example:
Lots of cities are within 45 minutes from epic activity sites...
Newquay has almost 365 days of surf, perfect for a surfing lesson or body boarding (activities very rarely get cancelled due to no swell). Newquay is also home to one of the best quad biking race tracks in the entire UK.
Bristol not only gives you access to fantastic nightlife and has a huge amount of restaurants, bars and nightclubs you are also only 20 - 25 minutes from an epic activity site which offers Rage Buggy Racing, Quad Biking, Axe Throwing, .22 Rifle Shooting, Blindfold Driving and so on...
Cardiff has adrenaline activities like Indoor Karting and White Water Rafting in the city centre, as well as the option of heading out to the Brecon Beacons for walking or Canyoning (only 45 mins away).
Booking your stag do to Edinburgh not only guarantees you an amazing night out but also gets you access to the Highlands (granted it's an hour's drive) but well worth it when you have incredible scenery and the best White Water Rafting in the UK.
Rural locations offer excellent facilities and options....
North Wales gets you access to the fastest zip wire in the world, or to some brilliant Canyoning sites, walking up Snowdon and some fantastic quad bike treks.
Book your stag do to Hereford for either camping or staying in a city centre hotel, from here you have access to fantastic countryside, epic activities and a little nightlife if required.

You may even find that more people will attend.
