Reading has maintained a steady presence over the years as a popular stag do destination – and there are a number of reasons for this. Located between Bristol, London and Oxford, it is perfectly placed for anyone in the south of the country so that it is far enough away from wherever you live (allowing you to really let your hair down), while simultaneously being close enough that it doesn’t take hours to get to – which is always a winner.
It is also a university town, which as we know tends to mean that the nightlife available is of a significantly higher quality as they are used to battling each other to become the most appealing to students, so they absolutely love it when stag groups come to town. Once you add these extra reasons to the fact that this town also has a wide range of activities for you to pick from and the fact that it’s filled with a friendly atmosphere means that a Reading Stag Do can be a perfect pick for any stag do.
Accommodation options for your Reading Stag Do are plentiful. With many of the hotels, B&Bs and guest houses available being centrally located, it means that no matter what type of accommodation you are looking for, you won’t find yourselves stuck in the middle of nowhere when you want to be within striking distance of the bars, restaurants and activities that this town can provide.
There’s a great range of options depending on budget as well, so whether you are looking for the cheapest possible option, or whether you want to lounge around in a life of luxury between activities, your Reading Stag Do will easily be provided with everything you’ve ever wanted while still keeping it within the budgetary restrictions you have set yourselves.
You won’t run out of things to do in Reading during the day either – we've got forty-five plus activities that are all well recommended, great value for money and can be easily arranged. The most popular options for Reading Stag Do activities are those activities which are a little out of the ordinary. For example, you can book a session of Hovercraft driving, which is something you are unlikely to have tried before, and is an activity that you’ll never forget taking part in once you have tried it. Wakeboarding is another popular option for a Reading Stag Do, giving you the chance to try being dragged behind a powerful boat and seeing if you can stay upright on the board as you speed along the chopper waters.
Other popular activities for a Reading Stag Do include some more traditional options. You might want to hunt the stag in a high-energy game of paintball for example, or you might prefer to compete to see who is the best shot at Clay Pigeon shooting. If you fancy something that tests your brain as well as your physical attributes, why not try visiting an Escape Room? This themed environment will give you puzzles to solve together in order to escape a locked room. There will need to be co-operation, logical thinking and the occasional bit of physical prowess to try and escape, so no matter what everyone’s strengths are, they’ll all be needed if you are going to solve all the puzzles before the time runs out.
As far as that nightlife we were mentioning earlier is concerned, there’s plenty of that to go around. Obviously it’s a good idea to go out and get some food before you head out on a night out, so it’s a good job that Reading is able to provide every type of cuisine you could possibly consider. Whether you are the type of group who fancy a proper sit down three course meal, or whether you just want to grab a burger or a pizza and keep drinking with the other hand, there will be a food option perfect for your Reading Stag Do.
Once you’ve eaten, then it’s time to paint the town red. Luckily, Reading makes it easy for you to do this, with a large number of the pubs and bars being all located very close to each other, so you can move on from one to the next without having to worry about doing anything inconvenient like walking too far! The great selection of traditional pubs and chain bars means that whatever your preference may be for a drinking establishment, you’ll quickly find somewhere that suits your Reading Stag Do.
After you’ve been to enough pubs and bars to fill your boots, you’ll want to move on to somewhere else. For some groups, the next spot is a gentlemen’s club, where you can continue drinking while enjoying a brilliant view, and for others it’s a trip to the casino where you can play some cards and see if you can get back some money for the rest of the weekend.
If a nightclub is preferable, the good news is that Reading has plenty to choose from, providing you with a wide range of music types so no matter what your preference, you’ll be able to find a club that will keep you on the dance floor until the early hours of the morning.
