Wales is famous for many different regionally specific dishes. Why not try one or two whilst you’re away?
A fruity loaf cake which is packed full of dried currants, raisins and various other fruits. Perfect for getting those blood sugars up after an intense paintball session – it’s practically a health food.
Unlike regular sausages, this delicious beauties actually have nothing to do with pork. They’re made from a delicious mix of cheese, eggs and breadcrumbs and will keep any veggie stags happy as well as pleasing carnivores.
This one’s only for the culinarily adventurous. Bread made from seaweed. Don’t know it until you’ve tried it…
These are probably the most well known Welsh dish enjoyed in England and for good reason – they’re bloomin’ delicious with a cup of tea!
You’ll have to travel a little further afield than the confines of Llangollen if you’re looking for some entertainment. However, Wrexham isn’t far away and will probably take you around 20 minutes to drive.
You and the boys can catch a play, some live music, stand up comedy and a variety of touring shows when you visit this lively theatre in Wrexham. The whole place is run by volunteers too, which is pretty cool!

Located just outside Wrexham, you can see loads of great touring shows at the roomy Stiwt Theatre.

Even though you and your stag group are welcome to have a good old go at a canoe and kayak course in Llangollen, however hard you try, you probably won’t be hitting pro standards. All through the year however, this sporting town provides an amazing course for white water slalom canoeing and kayaking!
The areas in and around Llangollen are absolutely perfect for exploring on two wheels. Loads of pro bikers travel to North Wales to test their skills on the rugged, open landscape.
