Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!

Worried about organising a stag do for 28 people? Well don't be, just contact Greg he'll do it for you. Numerous activities available, transport and accommodation all sorted and all great quality. Helped to give my son a fantastic stag party and memorable weekend

My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
