More Brits opting for stag dos abroad, study reveals

Stag dos abroad have featured among a list of modern day trends that are beginning to replace more traditional British pastimes.

According to a study of more than 2,000 UK residents, one in five Brits now opt to jet off overseas to celebrate their final night of freedom rather than hold the bash on the eve of their wedding, the Independent reports.

The research, conducted to coincide with the launch of UKTV's new channel Blighty, also found that longstanding attractions such as Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides are being phased out.

Instead, holidaymakers are partaking in more modern-day activities like surfing and waterskiing in order to keep themselves entertained.

While the popularity of stag parties abroad seems to be on the increase, the number of revellers heading overseas this year is likely to be reduced by the weakening value of the pound.

According to the BBC, this has already had an impact on traditional eastern European locations such as Riga stag nights, Kiev, Bratislava stag do's and Prague, with the number of visitors slowing to "a trickle" as people instead opt to celebrate their final night of freedom in UK cities such as Newcastle and Bristol.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19047180-ADNFCR
