Stag do.

Done a brief search, nowt much there so apologies if its been done.

God only knows why but I have been tasked with organising a 3 day weekender for 8 lads next Spring. Have bandied about the usual suspects, Prague, Barcelona, ect but its proving quite a task in respect of the sheer amount of good stuff out there.

So, 8 lads, a curious mix of civvys, serving and ex and one very ex, hats and non hats alike, some big some small, one small and ginger :D

Expense is ok as long as its not a complete account buster, £500.00 - £700.00 a piece for the lot.

Ideas flagged up, bit of range work somewhere would be good, bit of wandering about stroking chins and taking pictures, the usual fleshpots, half decent digs (apartment probably) and for me a nice little tongue and groove panelled, garishly decorated house of ill repute to slope off to once the Vladivar has warmed my senses.

If anyones had any good do's abroad, good packages let me know, be good to know the 'nightmare' spots as well, ie, taxis on commision, strip bars with a one way in no way out policy (a number of our party arent considered the diplomatic type and the prospect of being carved up and spending a week in a Gulag isnt too appealing :D ) and anything else anyone thinks is worth adding ?

Cheers,

Reni

I'm going on a stag do this weekend that's been organised trough the imaginatively named TheStagCompany.com

It's all been pretty smooth up till now (sorting out accom, timings, go karting package etc.) and i can let you know on monday how smoothly the weekend goes if your interested?

It's not prague admitedly (Chester) but there are options to go further a-field on the site and i'm sure i saw a shooting package on there too.

Regards,

Stay away from Prague. It's not as cheap as it used to be, and they're trying to get away from the "stag do" label. They won't let you in half the bars anymore.

Riga, in Latvia, is a good weekend away. So is Tallinn, Estonia.

Warsaw was a great weekend on a rugby tour, worth a look in.

Not for a group of lads on the pop it isn't. I went there in 2007 and hated it as we (4 blokes-myself, one Scaley and 2 civvy mates all in late 20's/30's and not any trouble whatsoever) got treated like shit. Having seen the way they treated stag groups when we were there (it wasn't for a stag do), I cannot recommend Riga whatsoever.

I did Gdansk last year with a good bunch of mates. Flew easyjet from bristol for not much. The place was cracking, beautiful birds and big square headed no necked local lads who thankfully were quite friendly to us!
We stayed in a hostel that was immaculte and about £10 a night, beer was cheap, absynth chasers were a mistake but a good time was had by all!

Stratford upon Avon is lovely.
Plenty of Shakesperian activities.Tours of the town.Always a good play to watch.And some really very nice tea rooms serving light lunches.Perhaps the more daring would like a trip on the river,very exciting.
Warwick castle is close by.Well worth a visit.
