Stag or Hen Nights in Newcastle

You only get one shot at planning an amazing stag or hen do that your entire party will remember, and choosing Newcastle as your destination is a great place to start. Our city harbours some of the best bars and clubs in the UK.  Plus, Geordies are renowned for their friendliness and willingness to party, so they’ll definitely be up for celebrating with you.

We know that you’ll want your weekend in Newcastle to be the best of your life, so here are our tips for ensuring that it is.


Fill your days with activities

Newcastle’s nightlife is second to none, so there’s no doubt that you’ll spend your evenings living it up in its many bars and nightclubs.  But, you can add another level of excitement to your weekend away by experiencing what the city has to offer when the sun’s still shining.

There’s a whole host of activities you and your party can enjoy, including quad biking, go karting, taking a tour of Newcastle, or enjoying a spa afternoon.  We have a great list of activities here, with something for everyone.


Choose the best nightclubs

While Newcastle is home to a huge array of lively bars and clubs, you’ll only want to visit the best of the best for your special weekend.

The Quayside is home to a number of sophisticated cocktails bars, such as Livello and Pitcher and Piano, which are perfect places to start your night before you head to some of the city’s rowdier venues. Speaking of which, Newcastle’s Bigg Market is where you’ll find wilder bars, including the Stein Bier Keller and Destiny.  Check out our guide to the city’s bars and clubs for more ideas.


Get some personalised T-shirts

Your stag or hen do isn’t complete unless your entire party is wearing embarrassing personalised T-shirts — it’s just par for the course.

It can be difficult to design something that everyone is happy with.  If you’re struggling, a T-shirt printing company like Custom Planet is ideal, as they have a range of existing designs that you can personalise, or you can create a design of your own that they’ll print onto as many T-shirts as you need.

Wear your stag or hen T-shirts proudly throughout the weekend and you’ll be sure to receive extra-special treatment wherever you go.


Play games to break the ice

It’s likely that a lot of people are going to be meeting for the first time on your stag or hen do.  There’ll be friends you met at school, friends you have from work, and maybe even some members of your family.  The best way to unite your group and prepare them for a wild weekend together is with some good old fashion stag and hen do games.

For the ladies, Hen Box has some great ideas, from quizzes to “the ultimate wine competition”.  And, for the blokes, The Stag Company has some crazy drinking game ideas that will certainly add a sense of competitiveness to your night.

A stag or hen do in Newcastle is bound to be great whatever you choose to do.  But, by following our tips and filling your weekend with exciting activities everyone will enjoy, you’ll all have the time of your lives.
