Britons may choose the UK for a stag weekend

Groups deciding on where to spend their stag weekends may opt for classic destinations closer to home.

This is according to Hoseasons, which has noted a trend among UK holidaymakers.

It states more and more people are choosing to stay in the UK as a result of the economic downturn.

Peter Joyner, spokesperson for the firm, highlighted a number of popular spots, including Devon, Cornwall, the Lake District and the Cotswolds – all of which could provide a great backdrop to any stag weekend.

However, since British holidays are on the up this year, some people have gone for options on paths less travelled.

"More people want UK breaks so they know they want to go Brighton but they didn't found accommodation there so they move further down the coast to Bournemouth," Mr Joyner said. For more information on Bournemouth stag weekends and Brighton stag weekends click here.

He commented that this represents an increasing inclination among vacationers to spend time in a wider variety of places.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the seasonally adjusted number of visits to the UK, potentially including stag parties, increased by four per cent between April and June compared to the preceding three months.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19325643-ADNFCR
