Categories: Things To Try
The UK stag do industry is expected to grow further in 2017, with 3 million lads expected to party the night away, celebrating their mate getting married. While most will still be remaining in the UK for the big send off, the number of EU bookings does seem to be increasing, despite the brexit vote.
The activities have probably been the most noticeable change, with the stereotype of the lap dance and boozy night out slowly diminishing, with lap dancing bookings dropping by 47% compared to the year before! New and exciting activities such as bubble football and footgolf have grown rapidly during 2016 and are showing no signs of slowing down. Foot Golf has now actually become an official sport in the US, with leagues being setup all over the nation.
One thing that actually surprises many is that Bournemouth has been, and is still, the number one destination for stag groups in the UK. It might not seem like the obvious destination, but bookings for this destination have always far surpassed anywhere else in Europe. Looking further afield, Prague is the number one destination outside of the UK, however Budapest has been increasing over the past few years, with a strong interest in the spa pool parties. A Lisbon stag weekend is also one of our fastest growers.
If you're not sure what to book for your stag do in 2017, why not try our brand new activity, footdarts. Located in a number of destinations throughout the UK, this is a great one for footie lovers, who fancy a battle between their mates to test their skills and to set up some forfeits for the losers. Trust me, we all had a go and this is hands down the best activity I have tried! I need one of these for my garden!
