There are 3 main coastal destinations in the UK for fantastic weekends, a Newquay stag party is right up there at the top of the list. Ok, granted it’s slightly more of a challenge to get to than Bournemouth or Brighton but if you’re in the mood by goodness it’s worth it! It’s always been famous for the surf but in recent history it’s the partying and events that have really taken off, it’s packed to the brim in high season and at night it’s throbbing with young visitors enjoying a fantastic time.
