Newcastle needs no introduction: this is the party capital of the North East. Simply put, you can't go wrong with a Newcastle stag do!
Newcastle blends an outrageously good nightlife scene with plentiful daytime stag favourites such as paintballing, quad biking, five-a-side football, and clay pigeon shooting. And the evenings promise Jägerbomb-fuelled bar crawls, working your way towards VIP nightclub entry at some of the city’s finest dancing and drinking institutions. One thing is for sure: you won't be stuck for stag do ideas in Newcastle!
Without a doubt, a weekend in Newcastle is one you’ll never forget, and we’ve got nearly twenty years’ experience in planning them, so we know exactly what we’re doing. Round up the lads, pack a bag, and get ready to party your way through the stag weekend to end all stag weekends!

Most stag groups choose to travel to Newcastle either by train or by car, although Newcastle Airport is just 20 minutes away from the city centre by rail. The magnificent Central Station, opened by Queen Victoria, is a 10-minute stroll from the hubbub of the centre, which itself is compact and very walkable, with lots of pedestrianised areas.
It’s easy to park here, with eight central multi-storey car parks and many Newcastle stag hotels offering secure on-site parking (though sometimes for a supplementary fee). 24 hour-parking can be found for as little as £20 at the NCP on John Dobson Street, so if you have a bunch of guys coming from one part of the country, it makes a lot of sense to car share and split the petrol and parking costs.
As for getting around in Newcastle, it’s an absolute breeze. Besides the excellent bus network, you’ve got taxi ranks situated close to all the main locations that you're likely to end up in. Think Quayside, Bigg Market, Central Station and Dean Street.
And then of course you’ve got the Nexus - the Tyne & Wear Metro - which is arguably the cheapest way of getting around the city. Connecting Newcastle with Gateshead, Sunderland, the coast and the airport, the Nexus has several stops in the city centre including Central Station, Haymarket and Monument - which is ideal for the beautiful Georgian architechture and buzzing atmosphere of Grey Street. Just look for the big yellow and black 'M' logo! An all-day Metro ticket will set you back under a fiver, but bear in mind that most trains stop running by around midnight.
It’s no surprise that Newcastle is one of the UK’s most popular stag do destinations. This city is absolutely brimming with fantastic stag activities for you and the group to enjoy. If you’re an energetic bunch who would love a weekend full of adrenaline-fuelled classics like Bubble Football, Quad Biking or Clay Pigeon Shooting, then just ask our team and they can arrange this for your Newcastle stag.
Something that makes stag weekends here stand out from most others around the country is the number of action-packed outdoorsy activities that are available to you. Your group might fancy a half day of Gorge Walking in Northumberland, or some Whitewater Tubing and Cliff Jumping out in the countryside. These options will leave you with plenty of stories to tell on the wedding day and a host of memorable pics for your social media feeds.
Booking for a group made up of football fans? Then you may want to plan the trip so that you can catch a game. You and the lads could catch the Metro over to the famous St. James' Park, one of the largest stadiums in the UK with a capactiy of over 52,000. But bear in mind that tickets sell out very quickly so you'll have to be super-orgnanised!
If live music is more your thing, you could try to arrange your Newcastle stag to coincide with a big festival like Hit the North, or This is Tomorrow. Newcastle is one of those cities where there’s something going on at all times, so it’s always worth doing a bit of research before you go, to see if anything interesting falls on your weekend. Of course, like everywhere in the UK, accommmodation over event weekends gets booked up fast and the city will be even more busy than usual, so planning your full itinerary ahead of time is always wise.
Looking for stag do ideas that combine cheap booze with lively venues and a fantastic clubbing scene? Newcastle is the jewel in the UK's nightlife crown. The city is famed for its love of social drinking and friendly locals. As far as areas to check out, we recommend you visit Bigg Market, the Quayside and the Central Station for your stag do entertainment.
Howlers, formerly Madame Koo, is a must-visit stag do bar in Newcastle. Open ‘til 3am, it has everything from crowd karaoke sessions to giant pizzas and supersize cocktails. But the highlight is...a massive ball pit. Yes that’s right, a huge colourful ball pit for adults. We’re as bemused as you, but it sounds pretty fun, right? Other exciting nightspots in the Diamond Strip quarter - the backdrop to reality TV show Geordie Shore - include the stylishly high-end Cha Cha Buchi, formerly the famous Floritas.
Our pick of the best stag do venues around Bigg Market in Newcastle must include the Bierkeller, whose simple but effective tagline is: 'We want to bring Bavaria to the people!' This cavernous, underground pub certainly delivers a touch of Germany to Newcastle, with huge steins full of foaming lager being loudly clunked together as the night unfolds. Filthy’s meanwhile, is not a strip joint as you might think from the name, but instead Newcastle’s premier live music venue for up-and-coming local talent, with DJs playing indie and rock classics on weekends. As for Newcastle’s legendary Quayside, there are no end of stag-do-friendly bars around here, with some of the liveliest venues in the city opening their arms, and their doors, to welcome you inside.
If you and the lads are planning on treating the unsuspecting stag to a lapdance, then we suggest heading to For Your Eyes Only, Newcastle’s most popular strip club and the largest of its kind in Northern England. Inside the venue, which has recently been through a stunning £2m refurbishment, the lovely ladies will make you feel welcome and provide you with some sexy entertainment. Private booths are available if anyone fancies having a dance to themselves. Failing that, there’s a well-stocked bar for you to treat yourself to a few beers instead.
