a little more about Cheltenham stag weekends
Cheltenham’s a fantastic destination - it has it all … a buzzing nightlife, terrific activities and great value packages. An old spa town, Cheltenham rivals Bath for its great history and architecture - it was originally built as a pleasure resort for wealthy visitors and its exceptional entertainment has only got better since then.
Get active in the style of late resident Eddie the Eagle (Britain’s only Olympic ski-jumper) with paintball, an assault course, quad biking and go karting. Cheltenham isn’t known only for its former skiing champion - it’s also popular for the annual festivals including the Film Festival, Folk Festival and Comedy Festival. Another interesting tit-bit about the town is that it has the fourth-highest rate in the UK of multi-millionaires per 100,000 people.
On top of all of that there’s a whole host of terrific activities to keep you busy all weekend long. Saturday you can try your luck at the Somerset challenge - which includes a pitch fork duel, crazy combines and welly wanging! For an adrenaline pumping afternoon get involved in some 4x4 off-road driving - an ultimate motor experience. Begin your stag night with a delicious stag supper at a top Cheltenham restaurant. After that we’ll cruise you over to the city’s finest lap dancing clubs where you’ll enjoy a spectacular show.
