Stag Nights and Weekends in Durham

Get ready for the night of your life

DURHAM WEEKENDS

It's now pretty common for a Durham stag party to last for more than one evening, hence the increase of stag weekends. It seems as if the event gets longer and longer with every new generation! To take advantage in this rise in popularity, there are now many stag busineses dedicated to making things easier for the best man. But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.

STAG WEEKEND IDEAS

Since you're on our site we assume you need to think about the stag weekend. That's going to include everything from setting the date and location, organising the activities and entertainment, and of course keeping the groom somewhere between sober and hammered. Our site will help you think through the weekend and give you tips on all the things to think about for the Durham stag do.

A sober stag is like a car with no petrol

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including white water rafting, Surfing, Tank driving, and Zorbing. Sometimes the best man just likes to organise the activity alone, and create a huge surprise for everyone, but we recommend involving the whole group, if for nothing more than ensuring people bring the right clothing!

Not all of these are available in Durham so you may want to consider other locations. Girls, booze and more girls - that's the secret to a great stag


Get ready for a great Durham stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!

And then it's time to get the boys heads ready for the fun that's going to follow. It's a very long tradition to get the stag completely hammered, but please make sure you drink responsibly - no-one likes to throw up and accidents can happen when there's too much booze on the go.

But of course there other options from taking in a little bit of comedy, sitting down and actually eating a decent meal (!!!) and of course the almost compulsory strip club.

The key ingredients are the stag, best man, alcohol, fun and some girls

TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

Here are some top tips for planning and running your Durham stag weekend or stag party.

STAG DO HINTS


On the big night, make sure that you keep the stag conscious. It's very easy, in the excitement of the night, to push more and more beer in the stag's direction, only to find out that at 9pm he's literally under the table, unable to carry on. That's not the kind of fun that he, or anyone else really wants. So pace the evening, keep an eye on what the other guests are pouring, and make sure he has the night of his life!

And please please please make sure that you and the other guests know that it's entirely inappropriate to talk about the specifics of the stag at any point during the wedding, even if you're certain no-one else is listening.

TRAVELLING STAG


It wasn't long ago that a stag weekend outside of the UK was seen as incredibly unusual, but with the arrival of cheap international flights (as well as the Eurostar) it's almost normal.  And there are certainly some unusual stag weekends possible, further away than Durham!
