Our stag do experts are ready to help you plan the most successful stag weekend.
In the first instance and in the words of Phil & Kirstie “location, location, location” - it’s advantageously situated, pretty much slap bang in the middle of the country and it’s well served by major roads and public transport so getting the lads there should be a doddle. In the second the activities are high quality and wide ranging, we’ve got well over 50 crackers listed and that’s just to get you started! In the third the nightlife rocks, it’s got everything and plenty of it from live music, comedy, casinos, lap dancing and the superb clubs to award winning dining, especially curry and in particular the city’s very own Balti. In the fourth there’s loads of great group accommodation so you’ll be set up in a quality base for the weekend. That’s 4 big reasons that a stag do in Birmingham is a very, very decent choice - you’re going to be pleasantly surprised.
It’s stress free year round, in fact with its range of activities and entertainment it’s probably one of the best places to visit if you’re looking at a spring or winter stag timetable. There’s a proliferation of canals alongside which there are a wide range of excellent and inviting venues, meaning that in summer appealing alfresco action is definitely on the cards. Birmingham is big on entertainment and hosts some major festivals, events and sporting fixtures so it can get very busy at certain times during the year, it’s also big on shopping so Christmas and January sales can see a lot of visitors to the city.
One of the most conveniently located destinations in the UK, central, easily accessible and the bulk of Brits can be than 3 hours or less. That’s a pretty useful consideration as the stag do organiser if you’ve got lads travelling from all over the country for a well planned celebration. Along with the activities, nightlife, hotels and top value if you’re not decided on a destination, Birmingham definitely stands out. The roads are well connected as are train services with 3 major stations - New Street which is the big one, Moor Street & Snow Hill. There’s also the Midland Metro which is more of a localised tram service than runs a bit further out, all the way to Wolverhampton, and is part of the National Express group which can’t be bad. Flight wise as the nation’s second city it’s very convenient with the prolific Birmingham International (BHX) serving flights to Europe, the East, America and more, making it one of the ten busiest airports in the UK.
Being a major conurbation the city has some really interesting districts, from the bustling and lively city centre with it’s charismatic streets, big name stores, arcades and historic squares. We’ve got to mention the Balti Triangle next - it’s awesome, you might not know apart from inventing the mighty Balti Birmingham is the curry capital of the UK! So it follows you’ve almost certainly got to schedule a memorable curry as part of the stag do celebrations. There’s also the Jewellery Quarter where up to 40% of the country’s jewellery is created - allegedly, it’s also a pretty decent place to party with loads of bars and restaurants within a few key streets like Summer Row, Frederick Street, Ludgate Hill and St Paul’s Square. Thereafter you’ve got charismatic Brindleyplace, set aside the canals where there’s a lot going on in the days and well worth a casual wander but it also provides some of the city’s best evening action. Eastside is probably Birmingham’s coolest neighbourhood making it a great place to visit during the day with comparisons to London’s own famous Carnaby Street, high praise indeed. No major city is complete without a Chinatown and Birmingham’s also referred to as Southside is bursting with energy. As far as staying goes we always make recommendations based on the best hotels for what our groups prefer, but rest assured for a Birmingham stag do you’ll be within easy reach of the city’s best action.
Rivalled only locally by Nottingham, Birmingham arguably offering the best selection of quality activities in the Midlands.

As well as some group pleasing bankers including some corkers - like the fastest off road karts in the country, there are some exciting and unusual stag activities to be had like medieval jousting, a daredevil tournament, extreme stunts, werewolf hunting and stock car racing. But fear not if budgets are a concern there are some high value options like hilarious dodgeball, disc gold and even an SMS pub tour! One final thing to mention is that sports-wise you’re in a great destination; the beautiful game is more accessible here than plenty of other destinations so if you fancy a visit to West Brom we can easily arrange it as we can the cricket.
This is another great part of it, we tailor make most itineraries here to fit with group finance preferences but we’ve also got big time packages starting at £135 per head! Another benefit is that while most cities won’t accommodate one night stays in high season, Birmingham’s a lot more flexible, so with its easy accessibility it makes it a perfect solution for a shorter event. The city itself is by no means outrageous definitely making it one of the best value destinations in the UK for a high content stag do.
