Discover the Delights of Cambridge on your stag Weekend
Cambridge is famous for its first class university, but even if your body consists of more beer than brains, don't let that put you off choosing Cambridge for your stag weekend. This city may not be as loud and busy as some of the more well known party towns like Leeds or Manchester, but don't let that fool you. It has a ton of top quality night spots that will keep even the liveliest of stag groups entertained.
How to Get There
The main roads accessing Cambridge are the M11 and the A14 which partly circle the city. The train station has direct links into London and is about an hour away so if you're a stag group looking to escape from the big smoke for a weekend then train is probably the easiest way to go. That way you don't have to worry about driving back with a hangover.
Cambridge is a beautiful and historic city and perfect for lazing about in or sitting outside during nice weather and enjoying a pint or two. There are a range of activities we offer our Cambridge stags from Newmarket Racing, five a side football, archery, paintballing, clay pigeon shooting and much more. These activities are perfect to break up the day get your blood pumping before you get ready to hit the town at night. You might even want to take in a famous boat trip punting on the River Cam. A great way to see the city and keep your eye out for any stunners, which is what sightseeing is really all about.
