Often described as a Gamma World City, Leeds has come a long way since it was a market town in the Middle Ages. Now considered the commercial heart of the West Yorkshire Urban area, it is also one of the best cities to visit for shopping and for the night life.
This of course makes it an ideal destination for your stag weekend, with over 120 bars and just under 30 clubs, you’ll have no trouble finding an establishment to suit yourself and the rest of your stag group. There is plenty to keep you entertained during the day too, from paintballing to tank driving, and clay pigeon shooting to bubble football. You’re not going to get bored during a stag weekend in Leeds.
Twinned with Dortmund, Lille and Durban to name but a few, Leeds has a long list of twinned towns and cities. The city itself has also received a number of awards over the years, including The UK’s Best Shopping City and the UK’s Most Female Friendly City, so it’s definitely one to take your lady to. She’ll love Harvey Nicks and you’ll love all the bars.
Leeds is also home to scores of successful bands, including Soft Cell, Kaiser Chiefs and Alt-J.
For a night out in Leeds that doesn’t involve clubbing we’ve got rib tickling comedy nights at Jongleurs. These normally involve your group being seated watch a live comedy show by some of Leeds best comedians. If you like, we can also add a meal for you and the lads as well so you don’t have to worry about getting hungry. If you do want night clubbing though then make your way to Tiger Tiger with its multiple dance rooms and well stocked bar. This is the place you go if you want plenty of daance space and lots of eye candy to enjoy. If you’re after some serious eye candy then we can probably help you there as well, with entry into Liberte Lapdancing Club. Inside you’ll find sizzling ladies who will dance and shimmy for your pleasure. There will also be private booths in case you want to treat the stag to a private dance as a last send-off gift!
Like a lot of cities now, Leeds has its own escape the room reality based game, whereby you and the lads get split up into groups of no bigger than 6 and you’re locked in a room. The idea is to solve the riddles and puzzles inside in order to get the secret key and get out of the room as fast as possible. It sounds a little weird but it is a lot of fun and a good way to pass a few hours if you’re not hungover and fancy using your brain. It goes without saying that Leeds is a great place to shop and Thornton\'s Arcade is a nice place to stop by if you have time. The shops different from the high street so might make for some good souvenirs to take back home.
There’s also Leeds football stadium as well and a must see for any fan. Plan your trip and grab a match if you can. Just keep in mind that unless you have a car it can be a bit hard to get top, especially if you want to get back to the centre of town.

Getting around Leeds is best done by taxi during the evenings, as this allows you more time and flexibility in where you want to go and when. During the day the FreeCityBus runs on a circular route through the city, which as the name suggests is free! It runs Monday to Saturday in the daytime and evenings. Leeds main train station is well served from the North and South so travelling to and from Leeds by train is an easy option.
