Top 10 Stag Do Activities in Manchester

1) Bubble Football

Is there really anything better than chucking giant, inflatable zorbs over your top halves and attempting to play a game of footie with the lads? Probably not is the answer to that. Bubble football is becoming a real stag do staple, and is an epic way to spend an hour or so crashing into your mates, doing somersaults and trying to score a goal. Let us tell you though, it’s pretty tricky trying to dribble the ball when you’re encased in giant zorbs! And tackling? Tackling in a zorb really takes things to a new level. Expect plenty of laughs during this brilliant activity that’s perfect for a Manchester stag weekend!

2) Bar Crawls

If you’re looking for nightlife, then you’ve come to the right city, cause Manchester is full of top bars and clubs! If you fancy a bar crawl but don’t want to plan the itinerary yourselves, just book yourselves onto one of ours, where a fun and friendly guide will take you on a tour of the best places to sink a pint and party in the city!

3) Paintballing

Partying is good and all, but you’re going to need something planned to keep the lads occupied during the day. So why not opt for a fast and furious paintballing session? It’s an all round crowd pleaser, that also provides those adrenaline pumping highs. Plus, you’ll get to pelt the groom-to-be with copious amounts of paint at a brilliant outdoor setting. Expect loads of places to take cover and hide, before shooting the opposing team and running for your lives!

4) Quad Biking

Quad biking in Manchester is a brilliant, adrenaline fuelled activity that's sure to get the blood pumping! You’ll get kitted out and will be provided with a full safety briefing, before hopping on one of these impressive bikes and exploring beautiful, rural Manchester. Twist and turn through dense pinewood, bump over fallen trees and splash your way through mud, all whilst enjoying some high octane thrills!

5) Strippers

There’s nothing quite like a stripper to take a stag do from good to great, so why should yours be any different? Here in Manchester, we’ve got a whole lot of stripper based fun that’s perfect for surprising the groom-to-be. Whether you’re stitching him up or giving him a treat, one thing’s for sure - he’s not going to stop smiling for the rest of the night after seeing one of these sizzling hot women!

Football darts is exactly what it sounds like, as you punt the ball while aiming for a bull's eye on this giant inflatable dart board. You can count points as you all have goes at shooting the ball, while you can play multiple games, knocking each other out, before getting the groom to stand in front of the board as you all have a crack. Sure, this is an active activity, but it's definitely a lot more low key and chilled than something adrenaline pumping like paintballing.

The Best Bars and Pubs in Manchester for a Stag Do
