Throw away all your preconceptions that Oxford is only full of tweed blazers, nerdy students and quiet streets, because this is a city that knows how to do both expertly. It might be home to some of the brainiest academics in the country, but it’s still a student city through and through, with bouncing clubs, adrenaline fuelled outdoor activities and more than enough shots to see you through the night. Oxford really is a stag do haven, where you and the lads can make the most of the beautiful countryside to get outside and blow off some steam, and those cosy traditional pubs provide the perfect setting for some day-drinking; a staple of any good stag weekend. Whatever you and the boys have in mind, we promise that Oxford will deliver. Whether you’re looking for somewhere chilled out to relax and bond with the lads, or you’re after a city that’s going to fully support your morning to night drinking regime, this is the city that does everything, and it does it all with a little bit of class, charm and surprise.
We weren’t lying when we said Oxford does everything, and our list of activities proves it. You might think Oxford is known for being pretty peaceful, but it has some of the best watering holes in the country. Get the lads together to try out some craft beer of cider tasting, complete with food platters, where you learn all about the brewing process and, most importantly, get to sample plenty of the options with some delicious snacks. This is definitely the perfect pick me up to start off your boys’ night out, and what better way to keep the party going than stepping it up a notch by moving onto some whisky tasting. The ultimate gentleman’s drink, sampling different whiskies from around the world will give your weekend the touch of class that Oxford’s famous before, not to mention provide the ultimate pre-drinks before you hit the bars.
The clubbing scene in Oxford is more than a little surprising, with some huge name clubs that are filled to the rafters with revellers night after night. Cirkus VIP deluxe drinks table gets you and your party your own private table complete with enough included drinks to make sure no one has an empty glass all night long. If you want something a little different to get you and the boys ready for a night out, the Beer Babes Bar Crawl gets you all a guided tour of the city’s top drinking spots from one of Oxford’s local beauties, or you can hire two butlerettes for two hours to wait on you hand and foot while you get ready to enjoy your night out.
After such a heavy night, nothing clears up a hangover quite like some fresh air and adventure, and luckily Oxford’s countryside is the perfect spot for some adrenaline. Test out your accuracy and aim with archery, axe throwing and clay pigeon shooting for the ultimate afternoon of proper lads’ sports, or put your skills on the pitch to a real test with bubble football and goggle football. Even the best players will struggle to score when they’re strapped into a huge inflatable ball or dealing with the "beer goggles" which will have you seeing double all over again.If motors are more your thing, then fear not; we have plenty of options that will get you behind the wheel and your adrenaline flowing. Rage Buggies get you off road and ploughing through the mud and dirt tracks of the countryside in one of the fasts off-road buggies around. If you want the best of both worlds, the rally driving and quad bikes gives you the exhilaration of off roading, with the experience of racing a genuine rally car around a certified track.
