What is an Alternative Stag Party UK?

Stag Parties are often associated with excessive drinking, wild nights out and even debauchery. Do we still view the stag do as your last night of freedom? There is a growing trend for people looking for an alternative stag party, which is more unique and memorable.

Here are some alternative stag party ideas to consider.


Active Stag Party

Perhaps the groom-to-be is a real adrenaline junkie and wants the stag party weekend to be filled with active pursuits such as adventure sports, caving, gorge scrambling, rock climbing, zip lines… I could go on and on. There are lots of options for an active adrenaline-fueled weekend!


Camping or Glamping Stag Party Weekend

If your group is a fan of the great outdoors, this can be a real crowd-pleaser. Filling the weekend with campfires, fishing, and hiking may be exactly what the groom-to-be is looking for. You can even go to the next level with the luxury glamping style accommodation, from tree houses to yurts – there is something for everyone.


Brewery or Vineyard Tour

If you fancy a more relaxed approach to your weekend, why not take in a Brewery Tour or Vineyard Tour? As well as sampling some great UK produce, you’re also learning a thing or two. Perhaps go one further by booking a Peak District Pub Tour. Sampling great country pubs at your own pace.


Cooking Experiences

You may fancy a curry on your stag night out, but what about learning how to cook it yourself? Why not get hands-on and create a really memorable meal together with your mates? Not only will it be more enjoyable to eat, you will also be able to utilise your new skills well after the stag party!



If your group would love to do something truly meaningful, why not consider volunteering for the day? It is a well-known fact that volunteering makes you happy, which may be a memorable and positive way to remember your stag weekend.


Whatever you’re considering planning for your stag party weekend, many alternative options will give you a unique and meaningful experience.  Let’s help you create something that the stag will never forget.
