As recently as ten years ago, you probably wouldn't have considered Bristol as a destination for your stag weekend. At the very least, it probably wouldn't have made the list unless you were a local boy and you didn't want to travel too far. Things have definitely changed though, and Bristol is now a regular fixture in our top five most popular UK stag destinations, ever single year. But what is it that Bristol has that makes it such a superb stag destination?
For me, one of the the most important things is simply how well located everything is. Bristol is geographically tailored to be a perfect destination, and even activities that are traditionally miles away from a town centre - such as quad biking and go karting - are less than thirty minutes drive away. This ensures that you won't be spending hours cramped in a minibus with a throbbing hangover. You can spend that time refusing to leave your bed instead! Additionally, Bristol benefits from a wide range of well located accommodation, so no matter your budget or preferences, you'll definitely find the ideal place to lay your head at night.
The selection of stag activities available is also huge, and there are some truly unique options to try. Assault rifles is a very popular selection, Bristol being one of just three locations across the UK where this activity can take place. Bristol can certainly cover the classic stag activities, with rage buggies, paintballing and archery tag all available locally. However, we also recommend checking out some of the more unique, left-field activities, such as sausage making, the inflatable games or the free-fall simulator. Rest assured that whatever your tastes, Bristol has the activities to match!
As for the nightlife, there's no need to worry on this front either. Bristol's nightlife is so good that you are unlikely to remember the end of the night when you wake up the next morning. As a true student city, Bristol offers plenty of pedigree, with bars of every shape and size, a wide array of pubs and clubs, a selection of casinos, and plenty of other places to keep you entertained throughout the evening.
In fact, a stag do weekend in Bristol is so much fun that you may find that one weekend there just isn't enough! It may only have taken off in the last ten years, but we've already had enough repeat visitors that we now offer great discounts for repeat customers!
