Just because our offices are right in the centre of Bath it doesn't make us biased - we think we can all agree that a Bath stag weekend is one of the best in the UK.

With great pubs, great activities, and great sights to see, Bath is pretty much the complete stag city.

Ok, it's a bit smaller than some of its counterparts, but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in quality.

Find out everything you need to know below and get ready for a next-level celebration.

Is Bath Right for Your Group?

Before you book, you need to make sure Bath is right for your group.

To be honest, though, unless you want to head abroad or go to the coast, Bath ticks all the boxes.

  • Great nights out? Got it.
  • Adrenaline-pumping adventures? Got it.
  • Chilled activities? Got it.
  • Refined restaurants? Got it.
  • Pub grub? Got it.
  • Anything and everything? Got it.

And yes, Bath is slightly more refined than some of its big-city counterparts, but don't be fooled into thinking that means it doesn't know how to party.

The Places in Bath You Need to Know About

George Street

Situated right at the top of town, George Street is lined with chain bars (Revolution, Slug & Lettuce), independent joints (Adventure Café, Circo, Sub 13), nightclubs (Zero/Zero, Moles) and more (Wagamama, Miller & Carter).

Kingsmead Square

Kingsmead Square and the roads in and around it have a lot to offer. We're talking pubs, exclusive bars, and a load of places to grab a bite to eat. Look out for Bath Brew House, Flan O'Briens, The Grapes, The Dark Horse, The King of Wessex, Fidel Rum Bar and a whole lot more.

Top 10 Bath Pubs, Bars & Clubs

Ludo Sports Bar

Located at the bottom of town, Ludo Sports Bar is a great place to catch a match and grab a bite to eat. They have a great little terrace out the front and back, too, so you can catch a few rays if the sun's shining.

Where: 9 Brunel Square, BA1 1SX

Komedia

The place for live music, comedy, and weekend club nights. They have The Big Disco every Saturday night, so expect a load of eighties, nineties and noughties classics. A great night out in Bath.

Where: 22-23 Westgate St, BA1 1EP

The Salamander

A cracking pub with a range of local ales. It's not the biggest pub in the world, so maybe swerve it if you're a massive group, but if there are 8-10 of you, it's a good place to stop for a pint or three.

Where: 3 John St, BA1 2JL

Zero Zero

One of Bath's busiest nightclubs, Zero Zero boasts three rooms, three bars, two DJs and a load of drinks deals to entice you in.

Where: 11 - 12 Westgate Buildings, BA1 1EB

Sub 13

A cracking cocktail bar situated on Bath's best party street. Their heated terrace is a hugely popular place to sample a few drinks before moving on to livelier venues.

Where: 4 Edgar Buildings, BA1 2EE

Belushi's

With loads of live sports, plus a cracking little menu, this is a great place to refuel and recharge before a big night on the town.

Where: 9 Green St, BA1 2JY

Where: 5-6, Edgar Buildings, Bath BA1 2EE

The Best Time to Go

For 2023, almost two-thirds (62%) of the stag groups heading to Bath with StagWeb went in June and July.

Why June and July?

Well, traditionally, wedding season kicks off in late July and early August, so this will give you and the guys a solid buffer between the stag and the wedding.

Bath is also home to two universities (Bath University and Bath Spa University), so by the time June rolls around, most of the students have gone home for the summer, meaning the nights out are a slightly older crowd.

How Long Do People Go For?

66% of the guys heading to Bath in 2023 with StagWeb went there for 2 nights (3 days), which we would say is the ideal amount of time.

No need to take too much time off work, no need to overextend the weekend, it gives you plenty of time to explore the sights, take on some cracking activities, and have a couple of nights frequenting the best pubs and bars in the city.

How Soon Do People Book?

On average, our stags booked nearly 5 months in advance which is a month longer than the average, according to our end-of-year stats.

But why are stags heading to Bath so organised?

Well...

  1. It's a compact city with a limited amount of accommodation
  2. It's the No.1 hen party destination in the UK, so things book up fast
  3. If you book early, you're more likely to get better prices, better time slots, better deals, etc.

That's why stags have to be organised.

Where to Stay in Bath

Bath has a load of central hotels that put you right in the heart of the action.

We're talking minutes from Bath Spa Station, a load of secure car parks, and the best pubs and food joints about.

There's also a range of houses available to book - some central, some slightly further out - that get you more space and more facilities.

You could even book a place that's halfway between Bath and Bristol and enjoy the best of both worlds on the groom's weekend away.

Things to See in Bath

Royal Crescent

The Royal Crescent is probably Bath's most iconic landmark. If you're in the centre of town, it'll only take you just over 10 minutes to walk up.

The Circus

From the Royal Crescent, head down Brock Street and you'll be in the centre of The Circus. It's another pretty impressive set of buildings that's worth a snap in front of.

Roman Baths

Round the corner from the Thermae Bath Spa, you'll find the Roman Baths. If you've got time and you're into that sort of thing, it's worth taking a tour.

Tips On Getting Around Bath

Walking - Bath is a compact city and easy to navigate on foot. Please bear in mind that it's built on the side of a hill, so you should expect a few ups and downs.

Common Bath FAQs

Is Bath good for a stag do?

Bath is a top choice for a stag do and a great alternative to some of its big-city rivals. Boasting a top-flight rugby club, its own racecourse, plus a load of fantastic pubs, bars and restaurants, it's ideal for lads who are looking for a legendary weekend away.

When is the best time to visit Bath?

The summer months are a good time if you want to avoid the student crowds (Bath is home to not one, but two universities). However, because you don't need to rely on the weather to have a good time here, Bath is a great shout any time of year.

Is Bath good for clubbing?

Bath is surprisingly good for clubbing. All of its nightclubs are located underground to avoid any noise pollution (which means they can be twice as loud), and there will be club nights for any type of music you can think of. OK... probably not Country, but we'd imagine clubbing wouldn't be your vibe anyway.

Is Bath popular for stags?

Traditionally a hen party hotspot, Bath is rising the ranks for stag send-offs, and we'd slap a lot of money on it becoming one of the most popular destinations in the UK in the next few years.
