Benidorm is more popular than ever, in fact, it’s so popular it’s knocked Newcastle off the top spot for the first time since 2018! We’re proud Geordies and will always think that the toon is the best, but we can’t deny that Benidorm is also mega. It is gloriously tacky, boasting a nightlife like nowhere else. From the infamous live sex shows to the 6am kick-out times, this is the Spanish city that (almost) doesn’t sleep – but we aren’t sure how. When beer costs as little as €1-a-pint, we are surprised people can still stand come last orders. But whatever time you call it a night, just remember to cram as much fun into your weekend as possible and remember, almost anything goes here. There are a ton of brilliant activities available from being to a . LNOF visited Benidorm recently for a weekend like no other and we highly recommend the go-karting – just don’t overdo it the night before. Check out our Benidorm Stag Guide for more reasons why it’s made its way to the number one spot.
Don’t mind us, it’s only our Geordie pride that’s been wounded by being knocked off the top spot. In our hearts we still have Newcastle as number one, it’s cheap, fun, friendly and absolutely bouncing come the weekend. The city centre is built around nightlife, with so many pubs and bars that you could easily just spend the weekend on the same street. Embark on a classy crawl along Grey Street or party like the cast of Geordie Shore on the infamous Diamond Strip - in fact, you can even hire the cast if you really want to make it a weekend to remember. And if you want to stay in the ultimate Geordie party pad, why not book LNOF’s exclusive Honeypot House apartments located right in the heart of the legendary Bigg Market. However, it isn’t just the beer that make stags want to come here for their weekend, Newcastle has fantastic activities for every kind of group. Our stags can’t get enough of and Outdoor Karting.

Ranking third, Liverpool was made famous by The Beatles, but this Mersey paradise has become a huge hit with stags over the years, with the cracking nightlife and that famous Scouse humour pulling in the groups. Liverpool is a huge city, but incredibly easy to navigate. Get yourself a and drink your way through the city. The city’s incredible location (it is basically an hour or two from almost everywhere in the North) is a big selling point, especially since there are four train stations and John Lennon Airport. And you definitely won’t be bored with Liverpool boasting a huge array of activities such as Wrestling School, and . Read our full Liverpool Stag Guide to get to know this city even more.
Dublin is one of Earth’s great party destinations. The Guinness flows like water and the craic is always cracking. It might not be cheap (especially down the Temple Bar), but it is definitely cheerful.

Prague is an iconic stag party destination that has been a firm favourite now for well over three decades; it’s one of our personal favourites too at LNOF, we have been countless times. Boasting brilliant boozers that sell budget-friendly beer (the average pint costs about £1.18), this is a stag’s paradise where you can live out all your wildest fantasies. If you have ever fancied Driving A Tank or wrestling a roly-poly stripper in a vat of mud, then Prague is the place for you – you can even get the stag arrested in what is surely the ultimate prank. We’ve visited Prague several times and it is a world-class stag destination. And if wrestling a stripper doesn’t float your boat, there is tons more to do like enjoying a bumper Booze Cruise or AK-47 Kalashnikov Shooting. You can see why stags have loved Prague for many years. Read more on our Prague Stag Guide to read more.
The Dutch capital of Amsterdam has been a stag staple for what feels like forever, in fact it’s risen up the list and despite the New Amsterdam Stag Party Rules, it remains one of our most popular locations. Our stag dos are designed to adhere to these rules, so you shouldn’t have anyone putting a stop to your party. If you are after a quiet weekend, look elsewhere – Amsterdam isn’t for shy, retiring types. It is debauched, rowdy and cool all at the same time, with the city’s infamous Red-Light District right at the centre of the action. Embark on a bonkers bar crawl around the city’s Rembrandtplein, enjoy the city’s café culture or if you fancy a complete change of pace, soak in some culture and visit a museum. Our favourite? The Condomerie, which has a world-class collection of, urm, condoms. If you fancy a stag in Amsterdam, click on our Amsterdam Stag Do Guide to start planning one of the best weekends of your life.
