Stag night revellers have long been content to celebrate here in the UK and it seems an increasing number of Brits could be joining them this year.
While stag parties will be familiar with the attractions and nightlife on offer in cities such as Bristol and Brighton, more holidaymakers are looking to discover the best that Britain has to offer this summer.
According to leading travel insurance specialist Preferential, more than 50 per cent of people polled in its annual holiday trends survey said they intend to holiday closer to home in 2009.
Indeed, only 30 per cent revealed plans to jet off overseas for their holidays, meaning stag parties hoping for a big night out in some of the UK's major cities this year may need to book early.
While most British resorts are gearing up for an increase in visitor numbers this year, Blackpool could be set for a particularly large influx of tourists.
Officials in the seaside town have recently launched a new campaign to attract more holidaymakers by promoting its impressive range of daytime activities and lively nightlife.
