Why Chester ...
One of the most stylish cities in the north, home to countless footballers and TV stars, Chester is the ideal place to hold your action-packed stag do in beautiful, striking surroundings. Boasting England's oldest race course, a gothic cathedral and a Roman Amphitheatre as well as loads of fantastic active and sporting activity ideas, there's so much to see and do - and that's all before the sun goes down.
Enjoy lively nightlife and large, well-populated clubs and remember to be on the lookout for your favourite football players too! Combine breathtaking scenery with luxurious surroundings and great active stag do options for the perfect stag do package in Chester.
Where to hang out ...
Chester itself is one of the most picturesque cities in the whole of the UK, so be sure to check out the breathtaking cathedral and the most complete set of city walls in the UK! The river Dee is a great place to relax or take on some watersports - walk along the The Groves promenade behind Grosvenor park - and of course the famous racecourse is a must-visit.
Most of Chester's nightlife kicks off around the Grosvenor Precinct of an evening and up on to Watergate Street. Be near all the action when you stay in one of our approved 3 and 4 star hotels or even a hostel for those who want to save money for use in the city's fantastic bars and clubs.
When to visit
Just like the whole of the UK, the winter months can get pretty chilly, especially if you and your group intend to make the most of the beautiful countryside, opting for a trip between warmer March and September is a good bet.
March sees a festive atmosphere in the city due to the Chester Food and Drink Festival at the racecourse, as well as music festivals in May and June. There's even a kite festival in September! You're unlikely to be stuck for something to do in this picturesque spot.
Because Chester lies right in the stunning landscapes of Cheshire and North Wales, we offer plenty of outdoor stag do activities for you and the boys to try. Whip out your sea legs and give white water rafting, canoeing or kayaking a go or get hearts pumping with canyoning, gorge walking and high ropes.
If you're sports fans, 11 a side football is always a winner, as well as dodgeball, golfing or even posh polo! If kicking back is more your style, we've got that covered too - watch the world go by fishing with your mates or simply watch the pros play football with a football spectating day.
Getting to Chester
Chester is well connected to London, Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales in particular by rail and is easy to get to in the car. Many national coach services also offer routes which include Chester.
On the money
As a favourite haunt for top footballers, TV stars and celebrities alike, Chester can be pricey. Luckily, this means that swanky bars are in no short supply, perfect for your mate's special night.
However, many of the city's traditional and historic traditional English pubs offer fairly standard pricing which isn't too far above the national average. In an upmarket city like Chester, it makes perfect sense to book activities and nightlife options with StagWeb to get you and your group the best deals!
