Perfectly situated in the heart of the East Midlands, making it an ideal spot for stag parties all over the country, Nottingham has a whole host of activities on offer to ensure your stag do goes off without a hitch.
You can book large group accommodation with Travelodge to keep the stag do affordable. With many hotels scattered around the city centre, there’s a myriad of options available to keep things cheap for your group. Booking online can often provide you with excellent discounts too.
Once in Nottingham, it’s not all about the boozing. This city steeped in history has much more going for it than just the excellent nightlife.
Home to the largest paintballing centre in the Midlands, paintballing is a must-do activity for any stag do. Adrenaline fuelled and great fun, there’s nothing wrong with a good dollop of healthy competition, right? The Paintball Jungle offers an awesome paintballing experience in 150 acres of Sherwood Forest, consisting of 7 paintball zones. Plus, from only £6 per person, it’s an absolute bargain!
2. Quad Biking
Also situated in Sherwood Forest, but one for the lovers of four wheeled thrills, quad biking is suitable for those experienced or not. Only 35 minutes from Nottingham, the quad trek takes you on a tour of all terrains, from forest clearings to muddy ravines. With the ability to master 6 off-road zones (once you have demonstrated you can control the quad on the practice track), you and the stag will be in for an awesome afternoon of adrenaline fuelled adventure.
A much tamer activity but still one to consider whilst deciding on your daytime itinerary. Eighteen holes at Ramsdale Park golf centre offers a choice of 2 superb courses, for a great value day out.
4. Real Ale Trail
A Nottingham asset, the Real Ale Trail aims to provide a tour of the 14 most popular drinking holes within walking distance, focussing on the range of fantastic real ales on offer. Enjoy a good pint of bitter with your mates before going on to a restaurant or club to finish off the evening.
5. The Nightlife
Attracting over 50,000 revellers every weekend, sampling some of the bars and clubs in the bustling areas of the city will give you an idea as to why it is so very popular with locals and tourists alike.
For the rockers, try Rock City for some headbanging tunes. Definitely one for the boys, Hooters on London Road will provide some fantastic scran as well as a buzzing atmosphere. Alternatively, try one of the trendy cocktail bars or for some cheesy tunes, head for the Oceana.
Whatever you decide to fill your weekend with, be sure to book all activities that need to be arranged in advance, as well as making sure the accommodation is sorted, before you set off for Nottingham. There’s nothing worse than realising you’ve forgotten to finalise bookings. Make your mate’s stag do stress free and ensure the party goes off with a bang.
