Traditionally the Best Man’s job, the groom’s stag do is a much anticipated event for both him and his closest male friends and family. A time to enjoy, reflect and have a cheeky bevvy (or several). Lads are more and more opting to make a weekend of it rather than just one evening – what better way to do that than to go to somewhere you have never been before.
There’s no need for the weekend to cripple your bank balance either. It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg and although many opt for a trip abroad, city breaks closer to home can still be a fantastic way to show the groom a good time.
Since its rejuvenation at the close of the 20th Century, Cardiff is becoming an increasingly popular destination for stag dos. A bustling city with a hectic nightlife, there is somewhere for everyone – from the trendy Cardiff Quayside to the more traditional establishments found in the city centre. Accommodation in the city doesn’t need to cost much either, you can find a cheap hotel in Cardiff city centre with ease and that way, you’re never too far from the action.
It doesn’t all have to be about the booze either. A good stag weekend can involve a fun-filled activity or two as well. As long as you aren’t nursing hangovers from hell that is.
Take an adrenaline-fuelled splash along the Bay Edge Walkway by taking the plunge into white water rapids. Experience the ultimate in white water rafting packages for £140 per person or pick and mix from any of the available activities.
If you are the outdoors type but not up for being so close to the water, why not have a go at canyoning or gorging? So much is possible in the countryside surrounding Cardiff that your stag do will definitely be a memorable one!
