Stag Do Activities


A great daytime stag activity if you’re up for an action packed weekend is outdoor paintballing! For those who are into their video games, bring Call of Duty to life and recreate the battlefield in the North East as you don your overalls for the paintballing challenge. This is a fail safe hit and is a great one for a large stag group and you can split into teams and go head to head for some healthy competition.


The ultimate stag challenge is definitely an option for the extreme sports stag do. Have the ultimate outdoors experience with this challenge package and try your hand at RX buggies, archey, tomahawk throwing and much more! You’ll even get lunch thrown in – who could refuse!


Does your stag fancy himself as a bit of an eating machine? If so, treat yourselves and try out a food eating challenge in Newcastle! You certainly won’t leave hungry and it could be a great one for hangover munchies.


Having a wild night out on a stag do is a 100% must, but why not try something a bit different and transfer the party to the River Tyne. Hop on a booze cruise and make your stag captain for the day with an all singing, all dancing travelling party complete with a fully stocked bar and party deck. With a range of price packages and hundreds of boat party companies to choose from it’s an absolute must for those looking for a party- sail off into the sunset under the iconic Millennium Bridge.


If all else fails, grab the boys and head down to Collingwood Street or the so-called ‘Diamond Strip’! What could be seen as the toon triumvirate, we recommend three clubs as very much stag worthy – House of Smith, Floritas Bar and Madame Koo. These spots are great for dipping in and out if you fancy a spot of club hopping, ensuring every night of the week you aren’t stuck for an option.

These options will leave you spoilt for choice, but whatever your preference enjoy and congratulations on the upcoming wedding from the team here at As You Like It.
