Have a blast at the world’s 5 best stag and hen do locations
The best man and chief bridesmaid have to hit that sweet spot between best party ever and possible arrest. While organising everything from customised clothing to cool activities.
Choosing a terrific town or city is the foundation of a brilliant pre-wedding blow-out — so here’s how to have a blast at the world’s five best stag and hen do locations.
- Blackpool, England
If you’re planning your party in good old Blighty, it’ll go off with a bang in Blackpool.
The legendary Lancashire location has hundreds of clubs and bars to choose from — but hotspots include the Central Pier Showbar, The Duke of York and Flying Handbag.
Hide your hungover features under a ‘kiss me quick’ hat as you stroll along the promenade stuffing your face with fish and chips — while those with iron stomachs can test their mettle on the new 85 km per hour Icon ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
- Prague, Czech Republic
Czech capital Prague boasts some of Europe’s best examples of Baroque architecture — which you can squint at while refreshing yourself with pints of cut-rate premium Pilsner.
You can even take a beer bath in the home of iconic brands like Budvar and Staropramen — then head into town to take in everything from Ice Bar raves to exotic dancing and medieval banquets.
Daytime activities include indoor karting and white-water rafting — but perhaps it’s best to book these outings for a timeslot prior to your main party evening.
- Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
If you want bust moves at the best party on the planet, head for the Trinidad Carnival.
The annual event is held each February and festivities focus on the Monday and Tuesday before Lent.
If you don’t like rum and wild dancing don’t bother — the non-stop party features costumes that leave little to the imagination. Don a traditional sequinned costume or simply splash your swimwear with colourful powder and oil — then throw caution to the Caribbean breeze.
- Magaluf, Majorca
This magnificent Majorcan town is a terrific spot for Hens to top up their tans during the day then party like there’s no tomorrow each evening.
Mega-club BCM has been voted the world’s fifth-best disco and pre-club cocktails at the Stereo Bar are legendary.
And spoil yourself with local seafood at restaurants like Nikki Beach or Asian delicacies at Lucy Wang — you’ve got to fuel your party engine properly.
- New York, New York
New York’s so good, they named it twice — so you can be double-sure it’s the right place for a dynamite stag or hen do.
Hens can pamper themselves in the glam New York Palace in Manhattan — suites have views of landmarks like the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Centre.
But there’s plenty to offer stag groups too — catch a big fight or cool concert at Madison Square Garden or get your fill of the city’s best beer, whisky and grub and The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog.
