Bubble Football Is A Real Winner

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Playing Bubble FootballStep aside 5 a side football, stag dos have an all new unique activity which is proving to be a big hit for 2014; Bubble Football.

Using indoor or outdoor football pitches, strap on a huge ball (similar to a Zorb, but much smaller) and get ready to dive into tackles, run like a pregnant teenager and bounce off your mates as you try and score that all important goal.

Goal celebratory hugs are going to be difficult, but worth a try!

We can offer this fantastic stag do activity in most UK destinations, currently our top stag destinations are Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Nottingham, Cardiff and Torquay.

So for a unique stag activity, which is great value and right laugh, book the bubble football with DesignaVenture.

Best UK Stag Destinations This Winter

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

Winter really is on it’s way, with the temperatures plummeting and the rain falling, is this such a great time to have a Stag Do?

First of all, hell yes! Winter is a great time to do some amazing activities where the old saying of the muddier, the better is used.

Around November, December you have the Christmas party season, so the nightlife is kicking and if you are looking to go in January or February, then it will give you something to look forward to after New Year’s.

But where should you go?

Don’t plan a stag destination too far from home, a latest survey run by DesignaVenture showed that the majority of groups in the winter months (November to February) chose to celebrate their stag destination 2 – 3 hours drive from their home.

So I would recommend Bristol, Nottingham, Bournemouth and Reading, they all have great motorway and dual carriageway connections which don’t tend to close should the weather decide to cover us in snow.

These fantastic lively stag destinations have amazing nightlife and some pretty cool activities and out of season you can bag yourself a bargain.

Take a look at our stag do special offers page, which has some corking out of season packages and great prices.

Reading stag dos are on the up, so let’s see why:

First of all the Reading is a really easy location to get your stag party to, 5 minutes from the M4, a city centre train station and if you are feeling really flush, Heathrow is just 20 minutes away!

Eating out is a breeze, there are loads of restaurants from chains such as Giraffe and Las Iguanas to the independents such as the fantastic Chinese Palace.

You will also find drinking holes all over the place quenching your stag’s thirst and giving him some brilliant venues to celebrate his last couple of days of being a free man.Boat Made our of Cardboard

In the centre of Reading you will find the Oracle, the Oracle is full of fantastic bars and restaurants with a great atmosphere and lots of seating outside lining the Riverside.

Reading also boasts some pretty good 4 star hotels, all city centre, all 4 star quality and most importantly all Stag Do friendly thanks to DesignaVenture.

So now we have the nightlife covered and your digs, what can a stag party do in the day?

From Hovercrafts to Rage Buggies, Segways to The Cardboard Boat Challenge (as seen above), Horse racing at Ascot, Bathtub Kart Racing, Paintball, Indoor Karting there are simply too many to mention.

My advice to you is to get yourself over to the Reading stag do packages and get browsing, there’s something for everyone, except for your Gran, that is.

Stag Do Adventure Weekends For The Adrenaline Junkies

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Abseling

So the stag loves adventure and is addicted to adrenaline sports, so where do you start? What type of stag Do would interest him?

Well, luckily I have just put together a small list of stag Do ideas and activities to give an ideas on what’s on offer.

Let’s start with Newquay or Bournemouth and the fantastic activity of coasteering, throwing yourself off cliffs into a swollen sea may not be your cup of tea however it may make the stag more excited than a 5 year old in an all you can eat sweet shop.

It’s not just about throwing yourself off cliffs, you get to traverse sheer rock faces and explore sea caves, and with all your kit included you just have to turn up in your shorts and trainers.

Similar to Coasteering you have canyoning or gorge scrambling / walking. Walk behind waterfalls, dive into deep pools and explore a rural gorge you would never usually get to see.

This activity is available in North or South Wales, the highlands of Scotland and around the lake district.

Again all your specialised equipment is included (wet suit, helmets etc.) so all you need is trainers you don’t mind getting wet and something to wear under your wetsuit.

Abseil down 80ft of rock and put a smile on your stags face, or if you really want to punish your stag group take them bungee jumping off a bridge in Bratislava, Riga or Prague.

A bit of a curve ball, make your stag party make like hamsters and roll them down a hill inside a huge ball, this is better known as Zorbing and over the last few years has been extremely popular.

There are simply loads of activities and ideas for your Stag do available all over the stag section of our website.

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

If you are in need of inspiration and are in desperate need of some fantastic Stag Do Ideas then karting and shooting is pretty much up there.

Rage Buggies are extremely fast and can reach speeds of up to 50 – 60mph, they also Stag Do friendly as they can take the humps and bumps of what a competitive stag group can throw at them.

The Rage Buggy will also stick to the track like jam on a piece of toast, you can really wrap them around corners with confidence knowing they won’t roll or skid like Bambi on ice.

Available in loads of popular destinations including Bournemouth, Bristol, Reading, Nr London, North Wales, Nottingham, Leeds and Edinburgh, these fantastic karts are the perfect activity for any Stag Weekend.

Stag Do Ideas in The Algarve – Not Just A Golf Course

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

The Algarve is infamous for great weather and golf courses however, there are a lot more Stag Do ideas in The Algarve then just the golf.

Staying in Albufeira (the liveliest resort on The Algarve, fantastic for stags) has a huge advantage, beautiful beaches and more nightlife then I can shake a stick at, and I won the stick shaking championship in 2011.

With a massive range of bars from cocktails wine bars, themed pubs to sports bars where you can get a sneaky pint and watch the match before dinner.

Restaurants in Albufeira are varied and full of fantastic quality dishes, even though you may not of booked your Stag Do to Albufeira for that reason at least you can get some decent nosh.

Then there’s the huge mixture of lively clubs, from open air to air conditioned and gentleman clubs to clubs playing banging music  you can loose your mind to.

In the day there are loads of unique and popular Stag Do Ideas to keep the boys well happy.

One of the most popular Stag Do activities we offer in The Algarve is shark fishing. With hooks as big as your hand and reels strong enough to pull in a double decker bus you will be kitted out and ready to land Jaws.

Another activity popular with our stag parties traveling to the Algarve is the Captain Hook Cruise, spend the day chilling on deck with a couple of beers then dive into the crystal clear waters showing other stag and hen parties you have what it takes to dive in the next series of Splash.

When us Brits are in a hot country we tend to stay near water and what better place then at a water park. Bomb down spiraling chutes, float on lazy rivers and race your mates down large slides water parks are fantastic fun.

If you do like to spoil a good walk then The Algarve is renown for some excellent golf courses. With the sea breeze to contend with and no sign of rain this is a little different to playing in the UK, dare I say it, it’s better!

So if you are in need of some amazing Stag Do Ideas and Inspiration for 2013, The Algarve / Albufeira is a great place to go.

Stag Dos in March

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

What should we do on a Stag Do in March?

Good questions Derrick, here are some amazing stag Do ideas for you and your geeky mates:

White water rafting which ever country you party in is a good call. Loads of frothing water from melting snow and spring showers, and White Water Rafting is the perfect hangover cure, forget alka seltzer.

Quad biking is great fun and when you throw in mud and water you got yourself an awesome activity. Thrash across fields, climb steep inclines and hope for the best through rivers, making quad biking a perfect Stag Do activity for March.

Don’t want to get muddy but still want fast, furious and competitive action? Then indoor karts is a great choice, the new breed of indoor karts are faster, sleeker and have the acceleration to bout. These circuits are all computerised, giving you up to the minute standings and who has done the fastest lap.

Man Canyoning Stag Do ActivityThere is one activity which has been created only for the hardiest of stag parties, Canyoning. Walking up a raging river which has cut through a rock creating a the perfect playground for exploring and activities for the daring. Jump into deep pools from ledges as high as 60 foot (the high ones totally optional), shoot down slides created by Mother Nature and climb rock faces with nothing below except a raging river.

If none of the above wet your whistle and you just want some full on madness, then you can’t go wrong with the Stag Do favourite of Rage Buggies, in my mind a perfect motorised activity for a group of speed hungry men.

So if you need some Stag Do Ideas for March, head over to the stag do section of the DesignaVenture website and get your fix.

Two other popular stag weekend destinations spring to mind is Cardiff and Bristol. Both these cities have awesome lively waterside areas to party the night away in.

Cardiff Bay has some great bars and clubs with an atmosphere hard to beat. Bristol also has an area called the waterfront with loads of bars and restaurants overlooking the busy canals and harbour side, by night the atmosphere is immense.
