So you’ve decided on a Bristol stag do, and you are looking for some ideas about how to make it the best stag do that it can possibly be? Don’t worry, you have come to the right place! Let’s start at the beginning.

Where are you going to stay on your Bristol stag weekend?

The great news for stags (and hens) planning to have their last night of freedom in Bristol is that accommodation options are plentiful. After considering the "all important" budget the group has available, you can get down to business and choose the best place to stay that ticks all the right boxes for the group. It's always worth considering whether you want accommodation close to the city centre so it's walking distance to the nightlife or are happy to be a bit further out because dancing the night away in a nightclub isn't your scene or like me hangovers no last multiple days and are no fun anymore! Either way the city certainly has you covered.

For the budget conscious or for those that would rather direct their money towards more adventurous activities there are several Bronze Stag Do Accommodation options available in the city and these are great for stag parties that are planning to be out and about most of the time and just need somewhere for your head to hit the pillow. Our Bronze accommodation is great at getting you somewhere nice and central to stay without all the fluffy stuff that comes with posh hotels On the flip side, if you are looking for something a bit more luxury, then why not have a look at our amazing Stag Houses – The Threes. Stag houses are perfect for groups who want a large 'together' space, where you can eat together, have space to play games, and enjoy the property away from the general public and still have enough personal space when it's time to go to sleep.

The Threes are actually two properties that are adjacent which can either be booked as one (for a larger party), or booked separately for smaller groups making it ideal for groups both large and small. The best thing about the Threes is that they give you the best of both worlds in terms of location and are situated in one of Bristol's trendy suburbs close to the city centre. Each house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, which means that even if you are part of a larger stag party there are six different bathrooms to choose from – so you shouldn’t end up queuing for a shower at any point or even worse have to follow your mates into the loo the night after a spicy curry!

We have the whole spectrum of stag do friendly accommodation across the city so whatever your accommodation requirements, get ion touch and we'll put together the best Bristol stag do package for you.

What about things to do when you are there?

What activities are popular? Which do we recommend? I mean, you can see from our range of Bristol stag do activities that there are over sixty-five activities that we offer that'll make your stag weekend one to remember, and I appreciate that number of activities can be overwhelming, especially if you have no real idea where to start.

The first thing that I would wholeheartedly recommend to any Bristol Stag Do is the assault rifles. After all, the point of a stag do is to experience things you’d never normally get the chance to experience, right? Well this assault rifle experience is something that you can only do at three destinations in the whole country. You get to lay your hands on genuine assault rifles, converted to fire the largest caliber bullet that UK law allows, the .22 and compete with the lads to see who is best at shooting targets – both fixed, moving and some even explode. It's a great experience for groups looking for something a little different.

Another really great option for your Bristol Stag Do is the Freefall Simulator. Again, this is one of those activities that is hard to find in the UK, with only a handful of centres in the country, luckily it is available in Bristol, making it a perfect activity for any Bristol Stag Do. If you don’t know what a Freefall Simulator is, allow me to explain. It’s basically a way to go skydiving without having to go up in a plane and jump out (and without the huge expense that incurs!) You get to experience the sensations of floating in the air due to a huge fan blasting you into the air. It’s perfectly safe (you have an instructor there with you) and is a feeling unlike anything else you’ll ever experience, unless, of course you're planning on jumping out of a plane.

If you fancy something with a bit more teamwork for your Bristol Stag Do, then I can also recommend the West Country Games. This is one of those activities that is patently ridiculous and yet is something that is such good fun it’s definitely worth a go! It’s like the old classic TV Show “It’s a Knockout” (or “Total Wipeout” for those youngsters among you!) but it’s got a west country edge, so you’ll find yourselves battling for supremacy in competitive activities that include pitch fork duels, bungee runs, apple launchers and more. There’s also an on site restaurant that serves traditional beer and cider, so you can refresh yourselves after your exhaustive, yet hilarious experience!

That’s just a few of the many highly recommend suggestions for daytime activities for your Bristol Stag Do. But what about the evenings? Well don’t panic, we’ve got plenty more ideas to go around.

So Tell me more about the nightlife

Obviously having a drink or three is one of the more traditional parts of any Bristol Stag Do, so we’ve got a few ideas based around the enjoyment of a few beers. The most popular of these is the Bar Crawl Babes. These lovely ladies are local and have a huge knowledge of all the nightspots Bristol has to offer, so they’ll take you from place to place, ensuring that you are finding the best options for you and the lads to enjoy a drink or two. The even better news is that they’ll look after the kitty and even do the queuing up for you at each bar. They’ll also include drinking games, challenges, forfeits and other entertainments throughout the evening, making it the best way to explore this amazing city’s bars, pubs and clubs.

Another variant on the pub crawl which is always popular is the Pub Crawl Treasure Hunt. This a self-guided crawl, but one with a point – you are split into teams competing against your friends to see who can find all the treasures the fastest, while still having a drink or two in every pub! This is great as it really gives you the chance to explore the local pubs and still gives you an element of competition throughout the evening.

Obviously there are all the evening staples like meals, beer tastings and the like, but the last idea we wanted to highlight here is one you may never have considered – Bingo Lingo. Don’t run away, I know that the idea of Bingo sounds like something your nan would go to, but trust me, this is one bingo night that you’ll absolutely love. It’s got the competitive nature of bingo, but everything else has been ramped up – it’s ridiculous, it’s full of banter and fun, you’ve got charismatic hosts, party games and amazing prizes. Also, it’s hugely popular with hen parties, so if you are a stag do with lots of single lads who are looking for a fun time, it’s a great place to go!
