Those planning a stag weekend break in London might opt to take the train to save on costs - and it could be worth stopping off at one or two railway boozers on the way.
At least that is the opinion of one journalist writing at the Londonist, who embarked on a pub crawl with a difference across some of the capital's finest station-side drinking dens.
Indeed, the writer's first stop-off at the Duke of York - located at King's Cross - saw him encounter one stag party who were already making the most of the £2.99 beer on tap and "charming" atmosphere.
Those looking to stop off for an upmarket tipple might also consider a trip to the recently-opened Betjeman Arms at St Pancras, which features a lounge and outdoor seating area brought to life by light jazz music, while Paddington's Mad Bishop and Bear stays open from 7am to midnight every day.
Such establishments could provide the perfect place for travellers to warm up ahead of a night out in the capital city, where top-class bars such as Gordon's Wine Bar are sure to prove a hit with drinkers.
