UK breaks have plenty to offer

03 Feb 2009

Stag parties hit by the effects of the weakening pound need not miss out on a great time away.

While the credit crunch may mean that flights to traditional European stag do locations are now too expensive for some, the UK still has plenty to offer.

According to the Guardian travel writers Nicola Iseard and Sarah Turner, those looking to save on costs and take holidays or short breaks closer to home this year can make the most of a number of attractions.

With stag parties increasingly looking to get out and about during their breaks as well as spending time in the nearest pubs and bars, there are plenty of adventure activities on offer.

From surfing on your Bournemouth stag weekend and kayaking in Cornwall to a Go Ape! treetop adventure course in Buckinghamshire, the more athletic-minded travellers will find plenty to keep them entertained.

Meanwhile, those looking for an alternative angle on the traditional stag do might take a trip to Somerset, where visitors can tour the apple orchards and sample the region's cider brandy.

Stag parties may wish to book their UK holiday early to avoid disappointment, with the falling value of the pound expected to contribute to a huge increase in the number of people holidaying at home.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19005587-ADNFCR
