UK seaside towns see surge in popularity

People planning a stag weekend in traditional UK party towns such as Brighton stag weekends and Bournemouth stag weekends might have to move quickly to make sure they do not miss out.

According to research by Hotels.com, interest in the UK's various seaside holiday resorts has more than doubled in recent months.

Indeed, searches for destinations like Newquay stag weekends and Blackpool stag weekends - both renowned for their appeal to stag night revellers - have increased by as much as 140 per cent on this time last year.

Alison Couper, director of communications at Hotels.com, attributed the rise in interest to an increasing tendency for UK holidaymakers to stay closer to home this year in an effort to beat the credit crunch.

"With a hot summer forecast and UK hotel prices at a record low, there has never been a better time to holiday at home and enjoy everything the UK has to offer," she commented.

Those looking to book a stay in Brighton in the coming months could benefit from the launch of a new tool that offers advice to tourists.

According to the Argus, BedsInBrighton.com provides a database of all the city's top hotels and tourist attractions, including the nearest bars and clubs.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19157492-ADNFCR
