With more activities than you could shake a stick at, Sheffield promises to keep the lads grinning form ear to ear with adrenaline pumping, daredevil activities and epic nights out. Shoot Crossbows, wet and wild Gorge Walking, fast and furious Rage Buggies and horrifying Zombie Apocalypse Training Camps are among some of the heart pounding offerings in Steel City. Of course if you're after a chilled stag do there's always Craft Beer Tasting, Brewery Tours or a Health Spa trip to rid the stag off any lingering wedding worries.
West Street is the real intro to Sheffield. At weekends the street comes alive under the moonlight as locals and visitors alike take to the strip of awesome sports bars, Irish taverns, banging pubs and anything alike. The atmosphere is unique to this part of the country and a friendly face will always point your group in the direction of a drinking hotspot.
The adjoining Division Street is much the same, but a short walk to Leopold Square will give a completely different vibe. This is for the sophisticated stag who loves to get his mitts on a fine tumbler of whiskey or a tall glass of Long Island Iced Tea. On a sunny day, you can hang outside under the shade of continental style canopies all afternoon. It’s the dream.
"A common misperception of me is... that I am a tough, rough northerner, which I suppose I am really. But I'm pretty mild-mannered most of the time."
- Sheffield born actor, Sean Bean.
Division Street is the place to go for nightlife on your Sheffield stag do. Lively but laid back, this area is filled with popular bars that each has its own style and quirks. For nightclubs you need only head along the street to Carver Street, which has an epic 5 clubs, all of which can be accessed upon buying a single wristband.
A trip to the Kelham Island Quarter (not actually an island) will give the stags an incredible insight into the industrial past of the city. Treat a history buff stag to the Kelham Island museum for a fascinating look at an old iron foundry; the rest of the lads can head to one of the quarters traditional and totally unique pubs.
Sheffield FC, founded in 1857, is the oldest football club in the world.
The area that is the city has been occupied since the last ice age.

Getting around Sheffield city centre is best done on foot or by cycling as distances are relatively short and the city is very pedestrian friendly. There are a few shops around the city that hire out pushbikes, but unfortunately no Boris inspired bike network.
By car you'll find parking incredibly difficult and the bus network, despite being reliable, is quite expensive. A good alternative is Sheffield's well known Stagecoach Supertram network which is cheap and easy to use.

The city of Sheffield has experienced a massive regeneration in recent years, transforming what used to be a tough, dirty industrial town into a shining new nightlife hotspot, without losing any of the traditional Northern bite and grit which made the city great.
Although there isn't much cutlery coming out of Sheffield now, it's still world-renowned for its incredible steel industry - but luckily, there's far more to this vibrant city than knives and forks these days. Located in Yorkshire, right next to the beautiful South Pennines and Peak District, Sheffield stag dos have an enormous amount to offer adventurous groups, as it's perfectly placed to experience a whole host of adrenaline fuelled outdoor activities. To top all of this off, it's also well known as one of the UK's best nights out, offering up a staggering array of lively bars and clubs when the sun goes down at the weekend. Combining top class nightlife and totally exhilarating activities with incredibly friendly Sheffield locals who'll be calling you 'love' before you've even finished your first pint makes for a real weekend to remember. It's a big city with big nightlife and an even bigger personality - Sheffield really does have the Full Monty!
Whether you hail from the North yourself or find the dialect of those beyond the confines of London a complete mystery, a journey into the wonderfully weird world of northernisms is always good fun. Here are a few phrases to drop into conversation on your Sheffield stag weekend…
'Love' - If a beautiful Yorkshire barmaid gives you a big smile and says 'thanks love!' when you hand over your tenner, sadly, she's probably not flirting with you. In Sheffield and the surrounding regions, anybody and everybody calls one another love, whether that's a burly bricklayer asking his co-worker for more cement, a policeman booking a young ruffian for stealing an Eccles cake or the cashier saying thanks in the local supermarket. You might just come to love this phrase!
Mash the tea - When you order up a brew in a Sheffield café and the waitress hollers through to the kitchen 'mash the tea!', luckily you're not going to end up with an odd mess of smashed up tea bags in a mug as the phrase might suggest. It simply means to make tea in a pot. Nice!
'I'm Clemmed!' - You're starving! Call this out in any good Sheffield restaurant and you'll be fed in no time. Or given a clip 'round th'ear for being so rowdy.
Bins - Glasses. You might be needing a dark pair of these the morning after a night out in Sheffield.
Tets - A pint of Tetleys. If you really want to blend in with the Yorkshire crowd, better order up 'a pint of Tets please, love'. We'd rather you than us though…
'Ah reet kid?' - No, that friendly Yorkshire gent isn't suggesting that you're of diminutive stature or lack the facial hair to be a true adult (even if all of that's true), he's just checking that you're alright!
'T in't in t'in!' - It isn't in the tin! A phrase that's very unlikely to be used ever, but if a Yorkshire lad has been fooled out of biscuits, listen closely, because you're in for a good ear-walloping of quality Northern!
Sheffield loves a good bit of culture and it's famous for its incredible music scene - did you know that Jarvis Cocker, Joe Elliott and the Arctic Monkeys all hail from the city? In July, Tramlines comes to town. It's the largest inner city festival in the UK and it's completely free! It welcomes big names like Toddla T, Lianne La Havas and Pixie Lott at venues all across the city. Around September, enjoy tasty treats and produce from all corners of Yorkshire and the surrounding areas at the Yorkshire Food Festival. If you're visiting during the colder months, there's still a ton of stuff going on. See the biggest fireworks display in the North on the 5th November in the city! Named Sheffield After Dark, see thousands of explosives whizz, pop and bang alongside great food stalls, drinks and music. From late November, you can get into the Christmas spirit with a good browse of the city's excellent traditional market. Browse traditional gifts and eats from rustic wooden huts, enjoy a mulled wine and maybe even kick off your festive shopping.
