Hen and Stag
Tips for organising a stag or hen party
Stag and hen parties have been popular in the UK for as long as people have been getting married. Over the years, parties have become more lavish and entertaining than ever before. If you're
planning a do, consider this list of destinations and activities to help you plan your itinerary.
Loch Lomond: It may be your local area but this is the perfect opportunity to explore what our area has to offer! Go jet ski-ing, hire a pedalo or a mountain bike, go on a Loch cruise or have a spa weekend.
Edinburgh: Go shopping in Edinburgh, take in some history with a visit to the castle, walk up Arthur's Seat and maybe catch a theatre show.
Newcastle: the fantastic shopping opportunities in Newcastle make it a perfect destination for your hen weekend. There are tons of bars, clubs and restaurants if you desire a night on the town in north east England's second largest city.
Liverpool: if you've loved the Beatles since you were a child, head to Liverpool for a weekend of Beatles mania. Even if you aren't a fan of the group, Liverpool offers everything from sports to ferry rides.
London: there is perhaps no city in England better suited to a stag or hen weekend than its capital. Have a kitschy weekend and take in as many tourist destinations as you can. You may just feel like you're back in primary school!
The activities you decide upon for your night or weekend are only limited by your imagination. Here are some of the most popular!
Wine tasting: have a bit of a tipple on a fantastic wine tasting tour. If you'd prefer something non-alcoholic, book a cider tasting tour instead.
Paintball: consider making printed t-shirts and divide your group into teams. Splatting each other with paint pellets is sure to get the adrenaline flowing and prepare you well for a night on the town.
Pole dancing lessons: there may be no better time to be had than taking the girls to a pole dancing lesson. Not only are the lessons a fun time but can come in quite nicely once you've arrived back home.
Karting: driving on the motorway can be a harrowing experience on the best of days. Take out your frustrations on the karting course. Perfect for ladies and gents, karting is a hugely popular activity.
No matter where you decide to go or what you decide to do, personalised t-shirts are a great way to get your party recognised. You'll be surprised at the discounts and favours you may get once people are aware that you're part of a pre-wedding do. Take full advantage!
