If your best mate is getting married and has honoured you by asking you to be his best man, you are likely thinking about organising the stag do. And while it might be overwhelming, trying sifting through the best possible stag do venues or party houses to take your stag and the rest of your mates. Here are 5 ideas to organise a stag do trip:

If your stag is a mega fan of a sports team, what better way to make him happy than by organising fully catered weekend tickets to his team’s big game? It doesn’t matter what sport it is; he could like football, cricket, rugby, or hockey. Do your research and find out if his team’s game falls in the same period as the wedding, and reach out to sports travel companies to hook you and your mates up with transportation, early access to the stadium, executive seats during the game, drinks and snacks, and even the chance to meet and play with your stag’s favourite sporting icons.

Go on a Wild Weekend Adventure

Maybe your stag is looking for something that will push everyone’s limits, so what about an outdoor adventure? There are a lot of adventure activities you can do in the UK, like rafting, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, wild swimming or even cliff jumping. Planning the whole weekend can be tricky however: choose the activities with wisdom so people don’t get tired too soon and book a big house to use as a base camp. There are a lot of websites, like, where you can book large group accommodations.

Go on an Extreme Driving Experience

Your stag may be an adrenaline lover that prefers to move by himself instead of watching other people play. In that case, taking him out on the racetracks for a day of high-speed gear shifting and sharp corner turns will definitely bring a smile rushing to his face. The options abound as well. You can take him go karting, to a muddy course with rugged 4x4s, or to a luxury track where he can race in Lamborghinis and Ferraris.

Go on a Road Trip

If you and your mates can’t manage the cost of flights and hotels for the stag do, it doesn’t mean you’ll have to stay in town and mope at each other over warm beers. If there are five of you or less, you can consider taking to the road in a VW camper or RV that can be easily rented. Plan a trip through the Dragon’s Spine in Wales or down the Coast of Norfolk and make stops at some local pubs or breweries (after designating a driver of course), go on tours of places you and the lads have never seen, or organise a scavenger hunt for the journey.

Take a Weekend Boat Cruise

If going on the road isn’t really your stag’s thing, how about taking the stag do to the water instead? Look to boat rental companies if you want your stag to be the captain of the ship, or hop aboard a dedicated stag do ship for a superbly stylish weekend partying with other stag groups in the clubs or bars on board. With the Grand Union Canal in the UK, hiring a barge for your stag’s weekend away is a great choice!

Alright, best man. Those are the five solid ideas for a stag do that you can’t go wrong with. Pick one of them, and take your stag on a trip he will never forget.
