Tom's Bristol Top Tip

"Bristol is one of our most popular destinations because it has it all."

"With activity sites on the outskirts and a vibrant nightlife in the city centre, there's plenty to do in the day and at night."

"Because it's so popular, accommodation books up very quickly, so I always recommend getting things moving as soon as possible."

🍺 Tom's Night Out Top Tip

"Gloucester Road is always a popular spot with loads of cool places to drink, along with a few sports bars."

"The Harbourside area is also always busy as well and I'd definitely recommend a trip to King's Street for the pubs."

Bristol is almost the complete stag city.

The only thing that can't be guaranteed is year-round sunshine (but you aren't getting that anywhere in the UK!!).

Don't fret, though – there's plenty to keep you and the boys occupied whatever the weather!

When to Go to Bristol?

According to our stats for 2023, 66% head for a stag do in Bristol between March and July, with the majority of groups going out in June.

Why's that time so popular?

Well, with most weddings taking place in the summer months, March-July gives stags ample time to recover from their weekend away before the big day.

Plus, this time of year, the weather's picking up, outdoor activities become more appealing, and beer gardens start to get busy.

Where to Go in Bristol?

From boozy to booze-free, there are plenty of things to do in Bristol for stag dos - you just need to know where to go...

Boozy Ideas...

  • King Street - This central closed-off street has pubs running down both sides with benches spilling out into them so you can enjoy a pint in the summer sun. Plenty of the pubs serve food, too.
  • St Nicholas Street - A short five-minute walk from King Street, you'll find St Nicholas Street which has a range of pubs plus both independent and chain bars. This place feeds into Clare Street which also has some restaurants and boozers.
  • Park Street - This hefty hill has a range of slightly more upmarket cocktail bars running up either side, with a few bars situated at the top. It's pretty steep, though. Don't say we didn't warn you.
  • Harbourside & Millenium Square - If you take a loop of the harbour, you'll find several pubs and eateries en route. You could even buy a beer and sit out if it's sunny. Millennium Square and the nearby area has a load of stag-friendly chain bars.
  • Gloucester Road & Stokes Croft - From the Bear Pit following the A38 north, you'll find a load of cracking pubs, bars and places to eat. It's a bit more of a boho, hipster vibe, but always good fun.

Non-Boozy Ideas...

  • Visit Clifton Suspension Bridge - You can't head to Bristol and not see the iconic Suspension Bridge.
  • Explore Harbourside - From bars to eateries, art exhibitions to places to relax and unwind, Harbourside is where it's at.
  • Banksy Tour - Bristol is the home of Banksy, so you should absolutely check out some of his work whilst you're strolling about the city. Be sure to book up our graffiti tour which comes with a local guide and hits up over 50 pieces of art.
  • The Downs - Located close to the Suspension Bridge, The Downs is an area of grassland where you can head to relax in the sun and nurse any sore heads back to normality. Take a beer and enjoy.

Bristol Stag Do Travel Advice

Getting to Bristol

Discover how easy it is to get to Bristol by...

Train - Bristol Temple Meads is the main station and you'll be about a 15-minute stroll from the centre. There are a few pubs in and around the station where you can pitch up if you're waiting for the others to arrive.

Visit Trainline to book your train tickets.

Car - Bristol is a breeze to get to by car, but the city can be slightly tricky to navigate if you're not paying attention, so keep the maps on. Check beforehand to see if your accommodation has parking, but if not, there are a load of secure NCP car parks dotted about.

Visit Parkopedia for the nearest car parks in Bristol.

Plane - For any guys who need to fly in, Bristol Airport is situated a 40-minute drive from the city. There are plenty of buses right outside the airport that will take you directly to the city centre, so it's an absolute doddle to get to and from.

For more info about arrivals and getting to and from the airport, visit the Bristol airport website.

Getting Around Bristol

Walking - If you're staying in the centre of the city, Bristol is easy to navigate on foot. However, it does cover 42 square miles*, so you may be travelling further afield during your visit.

Train - Bristol has several train stations in and around the city.

  • Bristol Temple Meads - The main station situated close to the centre of the city
  • Bedminster - A smaller station situated to the south of the city.
  • Montpelier, Redland, Clifton Down - Three separate stations located near to each other in north Bristol.
  • Lawrence Hill - A smaller station located in the east of the city.

E-Scooters - A quick and easy way to travel around the city. Hop on and get to where you need in no time.

Taxis - Between a big group of you, the cost of a taxi shouldn't be too much. V Cars are a reputable local company - visit the V Cars website for more info.

The vast majority are based right in the centre of the city, meaning you'll have the nightlife at your mercy.

Also, compared to self-catering properties, you'll have greater flexibility with numbers, lower up-front deposits, better cancellation terms, plus breakfast is sometimes included and you're less likely to have to share a bed.
