Bath stag do guide


With a unique nightlife scene, a host of classic stag activities you’ll love, and plenty of great pubs where you can comfortably while away an afternoon, Bath promises an epic send-off for the groom-to-be. Factor in hundreds of hen partiers making their way to the city every weekend to take advantage of the many spa hotels round abouts, and we reckon you can’t fail to enjoy a successful stag do in Bath.

Bath is definitely a place that draws the stag groups looking for more of a sophisticated weekend away, but one that doesn’t mean London prices. Probably most famous for its Roman Baths and spas, here is a city where you can spend the morning paintballing in the woods, then the afternoon chilling with your mates in a heated rooftop pool, before heading to a stylish cocktail bar in the evening. We love Bath for a stag do and we think you will too.

Getting around

One of the big things Bath has got going for it is how easy it is to get there. You’re 90 minutes from London by train, and the main railway station, as with the bus and coach stations, is right in the city centre. 

Bath is also easily reachable from the M4 and M5, and with several long stay car parks as well as electric charging points if needed. We can help with Bath stag hotels with car parking too, if you prefer having your wheels close by. But there’s no need to actually drive anywhere, as the historic city centre is very compact, while we can organise convenient door-to-door transfers for any out-of-town activities you plan.

There’s no need to fly, but if that is your preferred option, then Bristol Airport is just 20 miles away from Bath. The Air Decker bus service gets you into the city centre in an hour, or you can catch a coach to Bristol Temple Meads station and take the train to Bath, a journey that again takes an hour.

Tips and ideas

For a small city, Bath packs a big punch when it comes to things to do on a stag weekend. Naturally, given you’re surrounded by the beautiful West Country, you’ll found all your classic stag activities in Bath: Paintballing, Quad Biking, Clay Pigeon Shooting - just let us know what you want to do and we’ll take care of all the arrangements, including sorting out the transfers if you need ‘em.

What have the Romans ever done for us? Well, for one thing, Bath gets its name from the Roman Baths that were built here from 60AD, because of the health-giving mineral waters. The original baths can be seen, along with many other Roman archaeological sites, but for a more modern take you and the boys can spend a few hours at the famous Thermae Bath Spa. This is Britain’s only natural, mineral, thermal spa, and you’ll need to book in advance because it is seriously popular. The key attraction is the heated rooftop pool which gives stunning views across the city, but you can also get massages and treatments here. Why should the hen groups have all the fun?

So if you want to relax, take a spa session. If you want some thrills, Bath has got plenty to offer as well. For one thing, there’s the brilliant Escape Room at the House of Frankenstein in the city centre. Mary Shelly finished writing Frankenstein, an early example of science fiction, while living in Bath, and groups of up to 6 can put their wits to the test trying to escape from the mad scientist Victor Frankenstein’s attic lair. Stag groups can also arrange for a bottle of booze to be waiting for them on arrival, as well as private use of Bloody Mary’s Bar for a few drinks afterwards.

Bath is a truly lovely city to walk around, which is why we recommend you do, as much as possible. Seriously, skip the taxis and buses and keep your eyes open for beauties like the Royal Crescent, and the spectacular Great Pulteney Street. Another side to the city can be admired from the River Avon, and you can hire canoes, or do a little Punting, along this scenic waterway. 

Lastly, one of the best stag do experiences in Bath and one that gets a lot of interest from our groups is the West Country Games Day. It’s a brilliant icebreaker for groups that don’t know each other too well yet, and is bound to generate loads of laughs in the pub afterwards. Fancy dress is encouraged for activities like welly-wanging, the cider run, and drunken skittles. Get stuck into some good wholesome fun.

Nightlife

Bath offers stag groups an attractive mix of sophisticated bars, pubs for sports fans and real ale enthusiasts, spacious beer gardens and a small but sparky club scene. This is not a big city, though, and not all venues welcome large groups of lads. So read our stag do nightlife guide for Bath to ensure that your evening plans run like clockwork.

Let’s start with sports pubs, because we know that stag groups often want to catch the footie or rugby if their team is in action over the weekend. Two of the best sports pubs in Bath are Belushi’s, and the Assembly Inn, which also boasts a courtyard garden and a couple of pool tables. Never miss a moment of the action with these big and lively venues. 

One of our absolute favourite pubs in Bath is the Bell Inn, on the edge of the city centre. Here you can enjoy a slate of real ales while warmed by a real fire, nod your heads to live music at their regular open mic slots in the back bar, and chow down on woodfired pizza. It’s a community-owned pub, so every beer bought is money that’s very well-spent.

Another great pub is the Ale House, where the landlord has a bit of a reputation for close-up magic. They put on a free show every Friday and Saturday evening that’s worth checking out if you want to do something a little different. Similar magical shenanigans are on offer at the quirky Sleight Bar.

The Bath Brewhouse, with its own microbrewery, has in our opinion one of the best beer gardens in Bath, and there’s another really good one at the Hare & Hounds. You’re spoilt for choice here really, with riverside views, sun-splashed terraces and ace country pubs all available. 

Bath also has loads of swish cocktail bars where the mixologists will prepare your concoctions in style. Expect good tunes, a well-dressed clientele, and an atmosphere that will keep you around for a while at venues such as Fidel’s Rum Bar and the Dark Horse Bar. Another top cocktail bar and always a popular one for Bath stag do’s is Revolution - they also do very good food, so let us know if you’d like us to book you and the boys in for a meal.  

Not everyone is content to head back to their hotel come closing time, and Bath has a handful of excellent late-night venues worth checking out. Moles is a student favourite, with regular inhouse club nights that focus on everything from 90s chart hits to cheese, rock and hip-hop. The place to come if you want to dance. The Second Bridge is a small club underneath the Earl Bar, a cosy cocktail joint popular with hen parties that also has a cool outdoor terrace.
