If you’re getting hitched soon or you’re the best man planning your pal’s stag do then you may want to plan something more exciting than a trip to the local pub. Whilst you may not be able to afford the blow-out trip to Vegas, you may want to consider an experience day as an alternative stag do. Here are some ideas to get you started.
If you and your mates have always wanted to drive a top of the range super car at top speed, then now’s the perfect time to do it. Driving a Ferrari at high speed can now be an affordable option, but if you fancy something more rough and ready then a rally driving experience day or taking a 4×4 off road can be fun for the whole group.
If you’re still kids at heart though, then booking some quad bikes or go-karts for the day adds a fun and competitive edge to the stag do.
Adrenaline fuelled experiences
Treat the groom to a bungee jump and watch him take the plunge, before he takes the plunge into wedded bliss. Lots of bungee jumping experiences are available, but if you live in or near London you can pay to have the experience of bungee jumping off of the O2 arena.
For the ballsy of the bunch then skydiving can be an amazing way to send off the groom, however for a literal ball try Zorbing, where you get in a huge inflatable ball and get pushed down a hill. Just make sure you go on an empty stomach!
If you’d like a classier stag affair then consider a boat trip. You can take a boat down the Thames and see the spots where James Bond was filmed, or simply take a tour of Canary Wharf.
If you’d like to get wet however, then a white water rafting experience is fun for large groups, or you can try kite surfing if you want to learn something new.
Men love flying machines and what better way to indulge the passion than by taking a flying lesson. You can find experience days where you learn how to fly via a flight simulator, or you can take the helm with a trained pilot and go up in the skies in an aeroplane or helicopter and learn the ropes.
If you fancy something more gentle though, a hot air balloon can be a great choice for smaller groups – plus you can visit the local before you set off!
