Blackpool is considered one of the most traditional stag destinations, and is often considered one of the best places to go for a traditional, drinks-heavy, activity filled stag do. This reputation is very well-deserved, as Blackpool offers a massive variety of activities and is a very stag friendly location indeed!
But reputation alone does not make a great weekend away. It’s a good job then that a Blackpool Stag Do is so much more than the reputation would have you believe. Yes, the town is friendly and welcoming, and they do love groups of people visiting, but there are also other reasons why a Blackpool Stag Do is perfect – not least amongst those being that this destination is (and has always been) amazingly good value for money, so if you are trying to work to a specific budget, then a stag do weekend in Blackpool could be the perfect fit for you!
Whilst it may be renowned as one of the models of the traditional stag weekend, rest assured that you won't be stuck choosing between stereotypically terrible hotel rooms on your Blackpool Stag Do! This town offers a huge range of accommodation options to pick from, so whether you're looking for a simple guest house or a luxury hotel suite, Blackpool has you covered. You'll certainly be able to find the accommodation you want in a location that works for you, so no matter what your budget is, you'll find a perfect option to fit your numbers, preferences and tastes.
When it comes to stag activities, Blackpool is well known for having a huge range of things to do. Classic activities are here in abundance, with some of them having a specific Blackpool-inspired spin on them. After all, where else can you take part in a session of go-karting while taking in the beautiful sea views that this town has to offer? Go-Karting is not the only classic stag activity that Blackpool does well however. Paintballing, Quad Biking, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Zorb Football – all of these are here in force, and are always available to be a part of your Blackpool Stag Do.
All of these are activities that are quite energetic and physical. It may be that your particular party aren’t looking for that, and want their days on the Blackpool Stag Do to be more relaxing. Well don’t worry – if that’s the case, there are plenty of options for that as well. Escape Rooms are a very popular activity that taxes the mind rather than the body, getting you to all work together to find the solutions. If you still want an activity that is competitive but also not energetic, then a Poker Tournament is a great option here. Not only will you be able to sit down and have some drinks throughout it, but whoever wins may well find themselves with a bit more cash for the night out, and that’s always a positive thing.
As well as all of these options, there is another activity we’d recommend that you consider. Something unique to Blackpool that we recommend to all of our stag parties - the famous pleasure beach! The classic "Big One" roller coaster may be the focal point and the most famous aspect, but there are more than enough rides and amusements to keep a stag entertained all afternoon. After all, if you are having a Blackpool Stag Do, why wouldn't you visit its most famous attraction?
The Nightlife in Blackpool is almost as famous as the tower. Everyone knows that a night out in this town is one that you’ll remember forever, which is yet another reason why a Blackpool Stag Do is such a great idea. Obviously before you start drinking heavily it’s a good idea to have something to eat first. With that in mind, an ideal starting point is one of Blackpool’s many fine restaurants. With plenty of local establishments competing daily with the chain eateries that you see everywhere, wherever you decide to eat in Blackpool will give you some great food and set you up for an amazing night out.
Food eaten, stomachs lined, the next thing to do is find some pubs that you like. We recommend starting out up by the North Pier, where there are so many great pubs that you can turn the start of your evening into a pub crawl, experiencing each one and interacting with everyone you see. The interactions are an important part of your Blackpool Stag Do, as the locals are super friendly and welcoming, ensuring that the atmosphere you find yourselves in will be warm and sociable.
After some pubs you might decide to move on to some slightly more upmarket bars to enjoy a posh drink or three, and then, depending on what you fancy, your evening can head off in one of many directions. If you fancy dancing the night away, there are plenty of nightclubs to choose from, all of which have great variety of music and will keep you dancing until the early morning. Alternatively, if you'd rather have a drink and just watch some dancing, then there are a few gentlemen's clubs that may be right up your alley instead!
