Our stag do experts are ready to help you plan the most successful stag weekend.
It’s a big deal. We could stop there because that sums it up, but to help you with a little decision making impetus ... Edinburgh’s quite simply one of the best places in the UK and even Europe to hold a stag do. The only thing you might struggle with is trying to get something booked for late July & August when a trio of major festivals pack the city to its limits. Edinburgh’s got everything and then it takes everything, adds more, throws in some extra extreme action and entertainment for good measure, slaps you heartily on the back and encourages you to have an amazing stay. Plan it well and even the hardest to please stags should be in clover. If you’re coming from south of the border it also has that welcome air of an international stag party. There’s a lot to like, it’s a stellar choice.
The city starts the year very strong with mighty “Hogmanay” to herald the new year and really doesn’t let up from there, probably reaching a peak in August with the world famous Edinburgh Festival when the city is full to bursting with visitors from all over the world. Certainly the weather can play a part in the winter months when the days are shorter and one or two of the big activities like the whitewater rafting are not running, but with smart planning it’s more than off-set with exciting seasonal itineraries, which may see a nod to curling, skiing and definitely some whisky tasting! Edinburgh’s a massive city on the world stage so for a stag do it’s a pretty darn exciting place to host the weekend, anytime of year.
As one of the UK’s major capitals it’s a cinch! Fly in from all over the country from the Channel Islands to Cardiff, get the train (you could even opt for a sleeper) or man up and drive, whichever way you travel arriving here’s a treat. Check our flights page for more info and there’s a function on there to search through airlines and get you an idea of current best prices.
Edinburgh’s a genuinely impressive, exciting Capital with a rich history and a healthy appetite for entertainment, so as long as you’re in the right place you’re going to have a stag weekend to remember. There are a lot of noteworthy districts but to sum up three of the best the following should help ... the Old Town is the heart of the city and hosts the impressive Royal Mile, Cowgate & the Grassmarket; New Town isn’t actually that new having been designed in the mid 1800s and it’s where you’ll find the famous and lively Princes Street. Trendy Leith is an attractive sea facing neighbourhood around the port, made even more famous by Celtic crooners the Proclaimers, remember “Sunshine on Leith”.
It’s a Capital so the certain venues can be expensive and the better hotels don’t give rates away but outside of that it’s nothing to worry about. That said if you take on the Edinburgh stag do with hungry abandon you could end up partying 24 hours a day and that could indeed burn a hole in the proverbial pocket - but then again it could happen anywhere, it’s just this destination has more going on than most. Knowing Edinburgh, it’s venues and hand picking our suppliers, our packages are set up to be great value and full of quality content, we’ve got 2 night trips starting from £94 per person. We think you’ll be impressed.
Like any major Capital there are going to be some high cost venues and activities every now and then and you want those, especially if you fancy adding something a little extra special to the trip - from outstanding bars, restaurants and private dinners to 5* hotels and premium action - you get the picture. But ... you don’t have to blow the bank account, there’s so much range (price as much as leisure options) and possibility that a huge variation of Edinburgh stag dos are possible, using fantastic value solutions that maintain excellent quality. By way of example we’ve got ready made 2 night packages with hand-picked venues starting at £94 per person going up to £289 per person, we’ll work with most groups planning a programme that suits their budget. Best thing to do is talk to us, that way you can be sure your stag weekend in Edinburgh is on the optimum setting for your budget.
