Trending stag activities in Bournemouth

Bournemouth offers a brilliant night out, with scenic shores and loads of activities to sink your teeth into, it's always a popular choice with stags!

Bournemouth stag do guide


We’ve been sending groups of stags to Bournemouth since 2004, so it’s safe to say we know what we’re doing and we know what goes into making an unforgettable stag weekend.

After all, Bournemouth has more places to drink per square mile than London and with the city’s laid back locals, the place has a great ambiance, ideal for a weekend break. However, what makes Bournemouth quite so spectacular, is its miles of sandy beaches. You could say that this seaside city is making a strong case for ‘Stag Night Capital of the UK! Ask one of our party planners to advise you on the best bits the city has to offer. We’ve tried and tested the finest bars, beaches and activities that await you guys!

Great if you are looking for

  • A huge choice of bars and drinking venues
  • Miles of sandy beaches without having to travel abroad
  • Boat parties, VIP nightclub entry, golf, and bubble football

Getting around

Getting around Bournemouth isn’t difficult as the city has convenient bus services that operate frequently from the city centre. Keep in mind though: two different companies run the local buses (blue and yellow) and they both use different ticket types that aren’t transferable. The main bus terminals are at the train station and the square where you’ll also find the tourist office.

The train station is a small hike from the city centre, so if you’ve got a fair few bags then it’s best to get a cab, which aren’t expensive for short distances. In the early hours of the morning after a big night out, we recommend finding a number for a local cab service and pre-ordering a cab rather than waiting at a taxi rank. Seriously, trust us on this one, the city at this time is laden with drunken people and you may be waiting a while.

Tips and ideas

Bournemouth in the last decade has been reinvented as a party hub, shaking off its reputation as a retirement home. It still possesses its beautiful scenery and areas of tranquility though, so you can find peace and quiet if you find yourself suffering. Hengistbury Head is a beautiful sandy beach, perfect for some lazy, post-party sunbathing. In the middle of the beach there’s also Bournemouth Pier which serves as a local landmark and offers a small arcade, souvenir shops and boat trips.

Other ideas include, heading down to Dean Court, where you and the lads can watch a game of footie at Bournemouth football club. However, if the thought of being exposed to sunlight hurts your brain then you and the lads can always escape to the super-realistic 6D Cinema – the first of its kind in the UK, where you’ll get to dodge zombies, pilot a stunt plane or fly down a snowboard route… all with special effects and motion!

Nightlife

The majority of Bournemouth’s pulsing venues are concentrated in the city centre and Cameo & Myu is the club to hit up if you’re looking for plenty of bodies to dance and drink alongside. Le Chic on the other hand is the place to go if you and the lads’ fancy going to a club that puts emphasis on lounging, people watching and chilling out. It’s also well known for having reasonable cocktails and friendly staff. Halo is another great club with a huge dance floor and plenty of different drinks on the menu (keep an eye out for the sparkling Grey Goose vodka bottles!) If you don’t want to do any dancing yourself and would rather watch a lady dance for you then Spearmint Rhino is the lap dancing club that we send all our stags to. With a main stage and private booths to enjoy private shows. We’re sure the stag will appreciate a special stripper send-off for his last night as a single man…Maybe don’t tell his missus though!

Your party trick

I have the unique ability of getting drunk off 1 beer.

Favourite stag or drinking game

Enforce a rule that no one should be on their phone when the whole group is together. If anyone is found on their phone, the groom has permission to take it off of them and send a text of their choice to the entire phonebook. The person caught on their phone must also buy the whole group a round!

Best stag fancy dress you’ve come across

The Stag wears what you tell him to. You’re always on to a winner if you can stich him up in his favourite football teams rival kit.  The pictures will haunt him for life.

Why Bournemouth?

If going abroad is over your budget then Bournemouth is a great second choice. The Beach might not be exotic as somewhere like Barcelona but if you get lucky with the weather then you can definitely take advantage of being on the south coast. In addition to this unique part of the country, Bournemouth is unrivalled when it comes to the variety of activities it has to offer! Add this to it’s vibrant nightlife and you have one hell of a weekend on your hands!

Best Bournemouth activities

Bournemouth is one of very few locations in the UK where you can legally shoot an assault rifle with live ammunition. This exhilarating experience is certainly worth trying and can be combined with some other fantastic adrenaline activities such as Quad Biking and Rage buggies. Talk to your Event planner for more information!
