Breaking away from typical stag party venues like Manchester and Liverpool in the north to London in the south, Plymouth offers plenty of seaside action to keep would-be husbands and their best men entertained for a weekend.

Conveniently located on the borders of Devon and Cornwall (and 20 minutes from Dartmoor National Park), the city and its surroundings possess something for all tastes from outdoor activities like coasteering, gorge scrambling and hover-crafting to indoor carting, casino fun, great restaurants and a wide choice of nightlife. Here we take a look at 5 ways to create the perfect stag party in Plymouth.


Coasteering captures the heritage of Plymouth as a coastal town as you’re guided around the picturesque landscape, climbing, scrambling, jumping and wild swimming in some of southern England’s most striking natural locations. It can be tailored to each group depending on what you want to do with professional operators – like https://www.essential-adventure.co.uk – providing all the equipment and guidance needed.

It doesn’t matter if you think you’re the next Tiger Woods or Cristiano Ronaldo. FootGolf brings together the enjoyment of two sports for everyone – of all activity levels - to enjoy (and have a good laugh at). Played on a course using a size 5 football, the object of the game is the same as golf – to use the fewest amount of strikes (or kicks) to get your ball in the hole.

Zorb Football

Taking the concept of football to another – crazy – level, Zorb Football might give your stag party the odd bruise and a bit of a dizzy head before the evening’s partying begins but most of all will leave everyone with memories they’ll never forget. In this game, you’re dressed as a huge inflatable ball with the aim of scoring goals in much the same way as the traditional game.


For thrills of a different kind, Plymouth has a couple of great casinos for taking a chance on the poker tables or spinning the wheel of the slots machine. And at the Grosvenor, for example, you can also fill those empty tummies at its la carte restaurant. If you’re not sure how to play some of the games, https://www.bonussource.com/ affords you a comprehensive guide to online casinos (and sportsbooks) so you can find somewhere to play to familiarise yourself with the rules.


For most stag parties, the evening will inevitably end by hitting a club. Widely consider the best in town, Pryzm is where you’ll want to be. A futuristic and innovative nightclub like few others, this place oozes trendy décor and 21st-century technology. The Plymouth Herald - https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk – named it one of its favourites thanks to its multiroom format helping it appeal to various music tastes.

That’s just a flavour of what Plymouth has to offer thrill-seeking stag parties. With easy access to Dartmoor National Park, there’s loads more to do including hiking, rock climbing, caving, potholing, paintballing and Go Ape adventures right on your doorstep. So whether you plan to stay in the city or venture further afield, this coastal city offers a weekend you’ll never forget.
