Climbing Wall

If you want your stag party to be a bit more physical and test the nerve of your group then why not book a session on a climbing wall? You’ll be provided with all the necessary kit and have expert staff to get you started.

Skydiving and Wind Tunnel

If you want a truly unique stag party idea then look no further than a skydive!  If you want to feel good about it then why not do it for charity – Stacey Reed did for hen party recently.  If a skydive is too much for you then get the same sensation in a wind tunnel.  Blasts of air will keep you in the air to give you the same experience but you’re never more than 6 feet from the ground.

Greyhound Racing

Fancy a flutter while on your stag party?  Then a trip to the dogs is an ideal night out, and there’s a couple to choose from in London.  Stag party idea:  Get everybody to put in a few pounds extra so the groom can have a few bets, he might even share the winnings.
