Stag party celebrating in Bath

Stag Party Planning

Posted 7th November 2017 by Bath Hen

So far we have stuck to Hens but we reckon that there are definitely some Stag groups out there who enjoy the finer things in life.

You may be seeing your best friend off down the aisle or a group of trusty buddies who want to hang out together, chew the fat and remember the good old days. Celebrating, getting together, old times sake reunions Bath is a great destination to choose.

What to do?

Yes we get it, you are thinking Bath is all culture, history and shopping, a bit too tame, a bit too feminine. NOT AT ALL!

This is the city that is home to Bath Rugby – one of the most awesome rugby grounds in the UK right in the heart of the city – you don’t need to watch a team you support to have a great day of sporting action. Find out more at

Be the Stig for the day

Castle Combe Race Circuit is just a short drive out of the city, car track days are adrenalin fuelled fun or go for an ultimate driving experience in a luxury sports car. You can hear that F1 music already… Find out more at the Castle Combe website

Under starters orders for a night at the races!

Throughout the summer Bath Racecourse hosts evening meetings, this is a really popular racecourse and always has a good attendance and great atmosphere. Why not book a hospitality package and make an event of it, you might even back a few winners! Find out more here.

Mess around on the water –whilst exercising due care and attention please!

Take a boat down the Kennet and Avon canal, row, canoe or barge your way along.

Ready, steady, cook

Yes, really! Learn from Master Baker, Richard Bertinet, the gregarious Frenchman can teach you some exceptional cooking skills and he is great fun, a glass of wine is always on hand and not just for cooking, go on have a look!

Out in the country

There are plenty of sites near the city offering the popular lads activities such as:

  • Clay shooting
  • Quad biking
  • Paint Balling
  • Archery
  • Golf

Dining drinking and late night venues

Bath has got many great restaurants to discover, steer away from the chains and you will find some amazing venues:

  • Italian
  • Thai
  • Vegetarian
  • Indian
  • Gastro pubs
  • Michelin stars

There are clubs, check out Moles for live music and Komedia for comedy nights, cheese nights (of the music kind) and more.


Plenty, from traditional to cheesy and everything in between and it won’t surprise you to know that there are plenty showing the Rugby!

Places to stay

When accommodating for big groups of stags it is becoming ever more popular nowadays to book self catering accommodation. Lets face it, there is always going to be an early riser who is prepared to make those all important bacon sandwiches in the morning so don’t worry about sticking to hotel schedules and worrying about 24 hour reception desks… book yourselves your own property for the duration of your stag do.
