The stag and hen do’s are an important part of the pre-wedding build up, and offer a great opportunity for the bride and groom to spend time with those most important to them before the big day and the honeymoon.
Rather than limiting the do’s to a single night out, organising a group weekend away can be a good idea. Hotels that offer group accommodation should allow you to book a number of rooms close together, so that you can enjoy a pre-party party while getting ready to hit the town.
But where’s the best place to head for the ultimate stag or hen do?
Leeds is a fantastic Northern destination that any girly girl would love to take her hen party to. Shop till you drop in the Northern Quarter then indulge in the ultimate pampering session at the Lush spa, before heading back to your hotel to put on your new glad rags for a night on the town.
Leeds is easily accessible by train and there are two central Travelodge’s that will allow you to book group accommodation online, so a Leeds hen do is super easy to organise.
For the stags, Newcastle is a great choice. A city defined by its football and its nightlife, it doesn’t really get much better for a traditional stag. Arrange tickets for a match at St James’ Park – whichever team you support you’ll still enjoy the electric atmosphere.
When it comes to food, keep it simple. Big Lukes at the Metrocentre has good value all you can eat buffets, including a premium steak buffet for hungry carnivores to get their teeth into.
After stags have had their fill, the city centre is crammed with bars, clubs, pubs and music venues to hit.
When you arrange a weekend stag or hen do, there are no taxis to worry about at the end of the night. Simply head back to your hotel for a good night’s kip and a shower, then head out the next morning to dissect the night’s events over breakfast.
