One enduring classic when it comes to stag parties is the classic bar crawl. They’re always memorable (even if it’s for the wrong reasons) and if it all goes well you’ll wish you could repeat the experience – just be careful of doing it too many times. The same old route can get stale after a while and the parties blur into one. Maybe for your stag night, it’s worth getting a little more creative? Here are some theme ideas from across the UK to give you some inspiration.
Seven-legged bar crawl
An annual tradition among Nottingham University students, this bar crawl is a century-old tradition. A team of seven is required to play – one to get the drinks in at the bar, and the rest tied together by the legs into one long, sideways, increasingly inebriated conga line. Matching fancy dress costumes for the entire group are compulsory, and raising funds for charity in the process is encouraged. Ideal for a stag party!
Monopoly pub crawl
The classic Monopoly board covers 26 London locations, and now you can embark on an ambitious bar crawl that stops at every single one, taking you from the morning right through to the late evening. Amazingly, there is a pub at least just around the corner, if not on every road and station in the game.
Real ale railway pub crawl
This unique journey around some of Yorkshire’s most famous real ale-serving pubs is a little more manageable, featuring only six stops. On the other hand, you might struggle to fit in any more since you’re travelling by steam train between each one. This hugely popular pilgrimage is the perfect choice for a relaxed and interesting stag weekend that’s still focused on drinking and having fun, as per tradition.
