York is known for being a bit of an architectural, historical gem, and hidden away in those historic buildings is an amazing range of pubs, bars and restaurants perfect for setting your night away in style. So make the most of this classically British city and get to grips with some of our almost 100 activities, to make your weekend a one to remember.
With roots in Roman culture and a strong Viking history, York is truly the original macho city and we know you’ll want to do your ancestors proud by living up to their infamous ways. With a tonne of lad-friendly sports and drinking spots, or some more low-key and sophisticated activities, we’ve got something to suit everyone, so no matter which type of York you’re looking for, we’ll have you covered. If you’re wanting to try a mix of old and new adrenaline-pumping sports, quad biking and axe throwing is the perfect way to get to grips with some friendly competition. Or maybe you’re wanting to get a little bit of history in and some scares along the way, then we highly recommend the York Dungeon tour, which is a real crowd-pleaser for everyone. Whatever your style, there’s something to get the party going for you.
Did we get your attention with the high-adrenaline sports? Then you’re going to love what we have to offer. If you’re wanting some good clean fun to get everyone bonding, the old school sports day is the one for you. Wanting to try something totally unique? Bubble football is always a great choice; playing a friendly game of football whilst strapped into giant inflatable balls means that your skills are really put to the test.
Footgolf is another way of mixing up one of your favourite sports with a bit of a twist, as you play a full round of golf, by testing your accuracy with your feet instead. Looking for something to get the blood racing a little bit more? Indoor karting – Grand Prix is the perfect way to blow away a hangover and see which one of you has the biggest need for speed. Air rifle shooting is another way of getting a little bit of rivalry going to see who has the best aim, or who has the nerve.
Sampling some of the city’s renowned nightlife is an absolute must for any good stag weekend, and York will not let you down. Have a try of the Stein Bierkeller – entry and reserved seats to get some classic beers down you – and they always encourage dancing on the tables. Getting a guided tour round some of the best drinking spots is always fun, particularly when it’s led by a York beauty on our Beer Babes Bar Crawl – five hours of drinking in some of the top spots the city has to offer is a definite must have for any stag do. Keep the party going with Revolution guestlist entry, with entry into one of the UK’s best drinking spots where their shots are flowing and the music suits everyone’s taste.
Flares guestlist entry is the perfect way to have some uninhibited fun, with some classic old tunes and nothing but good, old-fashion, no-frills fun. If you’re wanting to maximise on your alcohol intake, then alcohol tasting sessions are perfect for you and the lads. We have a huge variety of options, so no matter what your poison is there’s something you’ll love. If you’re a bit of a connoisseur for the finer things, bourbon tasting will let you show off your knowledge with an afternoon sampling some of the best bourbons out there. Maybe you’re just looking for an excuse to get in as many shots as you can before you’ve even got your night started, then tequila tasting is definitely your thing. Whatever your type of stag do, there’s going to be plenty of things to get it going off without a hitch.
