A Guide To Your London Stag Weekend

London stag activities
Action Stations!

London has been the setting for many of James Bond's most amazing scenes. Now you and the lads can get in on the action, racing down the Thames on the Ultimate Rib Adventure. Leaving the group shaken but not stirred this is a truly epic way to see London at high speed with the music pumping and your Connery impression in full swing… "The namesh Bond, Jamesh Bond…"

Best Bars in London

Where to start?! Each district of the capital is its own totally unique destination when it comes to the vibe of their bars, pubs and clubs.
Mayfair is utter madness. Expect to be rinsed after a night out here, but it’s the only way to do London if you’re a stag of the sophisticated kind.
Kensington is chocka with stylish speakeasies and day-drinking bars where bay windows let in lustrous light.
Camden is a boho hotspot and down by the lock you’ll find classic London taverns alongside outdoor cocktail havens perfect for sunny evenings by the canal.
You’ve heard the hype around Soho, so check it out for yourselves. You can’t move for rock and roll pubs and trendy spirit bars.
And London Bridge pubs and bars are an absolute must for beer connoisseurs. Something for everyone!

Where to Visit in London

Districts - By day Covent Garden is cool, laid back and a great place to rest your hangover, by night it's one of London's best nightspots. Soho is also worthy of a visit, forget the seedy history (although there are still plenty of "gentlemen’s entertainment" to enjoy) Soho is now full of London's bright young things looking for a top night out.

Must see...

The O2 - One of London's most iconic venues, you can now scale its dizzying heights and climb the roof for a simply unbelievable view.
Wembley - If you've never been you really should make a pilgrimage to the home of football.

Pub Trivia

London’s O2 arena is big enough to hold 1,000,000 pints of beer. Challenge accepted.

On Ya Bike! Getting Around London

If you want to go "Out, out" during your London stag do, arm yourselves with Oyster Cards to travel via the London Underground & Overground trains, trams, buses and DLR.
Alternatively, hop on a "Boris bike" and use a bit of pedal power.


"You're ‘avin’ a bubble intcha?" - I do believe you’re pulling my leg old chap.
 "You really are a pain in the Khyber!" - You’re starting to bother me somewhat.
"Who’s up for a few Lillies?" - Would any of you like to join me for a drink?
"Let’s go down the battle and get Brahms!" - Let’s go to the public house and drink a large amount of alcohol.

London Stag Do Trip Tips!

London Night Out

It feels like every night out is like New Year's Eve in London, that’s the level they operate on in terms of their partying game. From swanky bars to quirky pubs, to bouncing nightclubs and all-night raves, there’s something to suit all tastes in the sublime English capital.

Getting to London

Getting to London is easy, although, if you’re driving, traffic can become an issue closer to the centre you get. For those arriving by train there are so many stops (plus the Tube network), that wherever you’re based, you’ll be able to get there with ease. Be sure to check for parking at your accommodation or closeby if you do decide to drive.

Is London Good for a Stag Do?

London is the very definition of cool, so it’s a no-brainer if you’re looking to give the groom a send-off he deserves. From an insane selection of daytime activities to great eateries and massive nights out, it has all the components for that unforgettable weekend away.

48 Hours to Party in London

Long gone are the days when you and your china plates (mates) would head down the battlecruiser (boozer) for a couple of Britney Spears (beers) to celebrate the groom’s last night as a free man! This is his big send-off into marital life, and you’ve got to make sure his weekend is top. That’s why you’ve picked London - the capital of cool - for your big weekend away! Brace yourselves, guys, it’s gonna be the real Ian Beale (deal)!


The home of football, the Queen, Big Ben, patiently queueing, bowler hats, and now your home from home for the weekend as you and the boys take over the capital for the main man’s big send-off! No time to waste, gents, ditch the bags and get going!

48 hours in London
Activity No.1

OK, you probably should do some sightseeing if you’re going to London for the big weekend, but you’re not part of the blue-rinse brigade and a boring old bus tour won’t suffice. This is a stag do and you’re gonna take sightseeing to new, adrenaline-powered heights! You and the boys hop aboard your rib boat and fly off down the Thames, from the London Eye all the way to Canary Wharf, at approximately “Waaaahhhhhhh” miles-per-hour!

Pub Crawl

The groom’s gone and had a quick underwear change and you and the boys are ready and raring to hit the town for your first night out! But where to head, London is a gigantic urban sprawl, you don’t want to go to the wrong district and miss the main party! Luckily, the best man had the foresight to book up the epic Pub Crawl who lead you to some of the biggest and best bars about! Legend!

The Club

You finish your evening in a buzzing nightclub which you waltzed straight into thanks to your Guestlist Entry. Now you’re in and dancing, the music’s blaring, the party is well and truly popping off, the first day of the stag has been a roaring success, if only you could just find the groom... oh, there he is, slut-dropping that pole, who knew he was so flexible?!

48 hours in London

You kickstart your day with a hearty full English and everyone’s feeling surprisingly spritely, ready for day number two of the big stag do… well, everyone minus the groom who might have had one too many shandies! Ah well, he’ll be fine. Nothing a few awesome stag adventures won’t fix!

Activity No.2

There’s nothing that will bring the groom back to life quite liking defeating the undead in an all-action Zombie Boot Camp. You and the boys head to this decommissioned nuclear bunker and prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse in true stag-style.


Unfortunately, one of the pesky zombies took a big old bite out of the groom and now he’s infected. On the plus side, he actually looks better now than he used to, so you chalk it up as a win and move on. Because finding a place to seat a big group of guys is a bigger pain than having to listen to the stag ramble on about the wedding, you and the boys booked up the awesome Beer and Pizza Meal so you’re all fully-fuelled for your afternoon stag activity!

Activity No.2

Forget Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, this iconic landmark is the greatest sight in London - fact! The home of football; that incredible arch; that World Cup win. Wembley Stadium Tour is the perfect activity for football-loving stags. Plus, it’s probably the only time the groom will ever get to visit this iconic ground seen as his side are about as useful as a chocolate fireguard!


The sophisticated supper before the big night out. Well, as sophisticated as bottomless chicken wings and moonshine gets. This epic Stag vs Food experience is the perfect precursor to that big night out and a hilarious addition to the weekend’s proceedings.

48 hours in London
Ice Bar

So you’ve eaten enough chicken to shut down an entire KFC but you’re fuelled up and ready to party long into the night. Now you’re all warmed up, you decide to cool things down at an awesome ice bar. Someone keep an eye on the groom, though, we don’t want him licking any of the ice sculptures and losing half a tongue before the wedding day.

Strip Club

Sadly you have to depart this epic ice bar, but it’s time to take the temperature back up as you and the boys treat the groom to one last look at what he’ll be missing when he heads off into marital life! Yes, you and the boys head to one of London’s premier Lap Dancing clubs to see out the evening in style.

The End

The night’s coming to a close, you’ve partied hard and celebrated in style, but it’s time to get some shut-eye before you journey back to your respective hometowns. But you’ve completed the London stag do and will depart as heroes! Give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back, gents!

48 hours in London
London? Completed it!

Home time! You came, you saw and you conquered! Let’s just hope someone else plucks up the courage to propose soon and we can do it all again. Until then, goodbye and godspeed!

QI - It's illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour. Don't say we didn't warn you!

Covent Garden

Covent Garden is typical of London because of the crazy mix of people it brings together. You'll find those heading to the Royal Opera House rubbing shoulders with buskers, hipsters, tourists, party girls, bankers. It's one of the city's great melting pots and has some great pubs and eateries as well as being within walking distance of Soho and Leicester Square.

West End

Mostly known for being home to the capital's theatre land, the West End is also packed with great pubs, bars, comedy clubs as well as some of the city's biggest nightclubs. If you want a night with a real touch of class, then going "Up West" is the way to do it.


Forget the men in dirty macs, Soho has definitely moved on. Artists, writers, TV companies and microbreweries have all moved in. At night the bars are varied and loud. Tolerance rules and straight and LBGT bars sit comfortably rubbing shoulders (although the music is very different). Soho is also the gateway to London's Chinatown and some of the capital's best food. You'll actually find a mix of cuisine from countries across Asia and while they might not look much, the prices are good and the food is amazing!


Camden is boho. Big bears, tattoos, checked shirts, it really is as cool as London gets. If you enjoy quality food and drink but don't like paying the Earth, then Camden is a great choice. There are a number of microbreweries and artisan food and drink companies in the area as well as brilliantly inventive restaurants. It's also seen the birth of some of the biggest names in British rock history, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Squeeze, Madness all played Camden on their way to stardom.


Shoreditch is like that girl at the party who is just way to fashionable to talk to you. But you really want to get her number. Experimental, edgy, unpredictable, it's the kind of night where anything can happen and probably will. If ever you're going to wake up with a tattoo of Holly Willoughby wrestling a crocodile and no idea how it got there, it'll happen in Shoreditch.

South Bank

Birthplace of none other than the Ministry of Sound, the South Bank has some serious party credentials. It has spawned a number of other big clubs but be careful of poor imitations. By day there is a great art scene as well as the National Theatre and South Bank Centre if you're feeling a bit more highbrow.

QI - Aldgate tube station sits on the site of a mass grave, where over 1,000 bodies were buried during the Great Plague.

Sightseeing in London
Big Ben & Houses of Parliament

Solet's get a bit boring; Big Ben is actually the name of one of the bells, not the tower itself that overlooks Westminster Palace, aka The Houses of Parliament. Did you know it has eight bars that are all subsidised by the taxpayer? Shocking. It's also within easy walking distance of 10 Downing Street, not that the PM ever walks. Lazy.

Buckingham Palace

If you've never visited London before then this is one you should tick off your list. With the fountains, guards, and sheer number of windows (you can't help but think, I'd hate to have to clean all those if I owned that place!). Property prices in London? Experts reckon if Buck House were to go on the market, you'd be looking at an asking price of around £4 billion!

Hyde Park

Looking for somewhere to rest those hangovers and get a bit of fresh air? The park covers 350 acres with lakes, sports pitches and running and bridal paths. It's also home to some major events and concerts. A nice place to spend a few hours and just take it easy.

Covent Garden

Top tip: head to the Punch and Judy pub in Covent Garden, sit out on the balcony and just enjoy London. From up here you can watch the brilliant buskers and let the world drift by. Covent Garden has its own energy, yes, there are lots of tourists, but if you look around you'll also find some great pubs and good eateries (be brave, head down the side streets for the best options).

Trafalgar Square

It's as English as it gets, one of the first places Londoners flock to in times of triumph and happiness (World Cup results, the end of WWII, Royal Weddings). It's actually illegal to jump in the fountains so don't go sending the groom in for a dip. It's also within walking distance of every other sight on this list. Yes, surprisingly, you can get around the whole lot on foot.

The War Rooms

A really fascinating look at just what went on during some of the nation's darkest days and how rudimentary the tools were that the war office had at their disposal. Fascinating and a nice diversion from making jokes about all the groom's exes.

QI - Former London street names that have been cleaned up include Shiteburn Lane, Pissing Alley and Gropecunt Lane.

Photo Opportunities in London
10 Downing Street

You probably won't get invited in for a cuppa or even get anywhere near the front door but if you're clever you can get some pretty creative photos of all the guys together on the big weekend.

Trafalgar Square

Definitely one for the photo album. Get all the guys lined up and you'll find no end of smiling tourists happy to take a shot of the whole group together. Get friendly and you can get a few random tourists into your shots just for laughs. In fact, we dare you! How many tourists can you get in a photo with you? Post your results on our Instagram page.

The Thames

Can rivers be cool? Well James Bond has raced on this one so we're going to say yes. It's also been the backdrop of a great many album covers over the years so get the guys looking mean and moody and get snapping. There are just so many points along the river to get amazing shots and enjoy those Waterloo sunsets.


Want something Instagram cool? Soho by night is the place to do it. There's a great buzz and plenty of good lighting to get something a little bit different. This is definitely the place to get a bit more artistic with your photos or catch the guys a little bit more relaxed rather than grinning insanely at the lens.

QI - Weird things to have been left on underground trains include samurai sword, a stuffed puffer fish, a human skull, and a coffin!
