Daytime Stag Do Activities in Newcastle

There’s no doubt about it, this is a footie obsessed city! So, where better to indulge in the love of the beautiful game and have a kick about with your mates?

But come on, this is a stag do in Newcastle; you’re going to want to up the ante and we’ve got some brilliant footie-inspired activities that’ll do just that! First up, Bubble Football! This hilarious activity sees you and the boys climb into massive, transparent, inflatable zorbs to play an energetic game that’ll have you all in stiches.

Next up, two legendary sports join forces for your enjoyment. Footgolf is a footie and golf hybrid where you’ll kick a football around a golf course and into specially made, larger holes.

Our last football-inspired activity but by no means least is Footdarts. Here you’ll kick Velcro balls onto a massive, inflatable dartboard. Wherever you hit will either score mega points for your team or get you to participate in a hilarious challenge. If football’s not your thing or you want to try something different, then there’s loads of other activities to choose from, including Escape Rooms and Dining Experiences.

Evening Stag Do Activities in Newcastle

Newcastle offers a lively and vibrant nightlife that’s guaranteed to keep you and your stag group occupied till the early hours! There’s plenty of brilliant restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs to choose from, but why not start the night the right way with some of our evening stag do activity ideas?

No night out would be complete without some decent food to commence the evening’s stag antics! So why not arrange for you and your group to enjoy a reservation at Las Iguanas on Grey Street? Here, you and the rest of the stags will be able to indulge in an incredible array of Latin American food. Each guest will enjoy two dishes each along with a drink. Booking a restaurant ahead of your evening is highly recommended, as many restaurants may not be able to accommodate large stag groups last minute!

Need to get a restaurant booked in ahead of the big night out on the Toon? Then why not combine it with a brilliant gin tasting masterclass to enjoy beforehand?

You’ll make your way to Revolution on the city’s Collingwood Street, where the session will start with a tasty G&T. Your experience will be led by an expert in all things gin, and you’ll have the arduous task of sampling a great variety of these spirits! Afterwards, you and the rest of the stags will get stuck into a slap-up meal that also includes a drink for each person. There’s plenty of options on the menu, with something to cater for all tastes.

The city’s excellent underground railway network makes getting around Newcastle super simple. The Metro will ferry you around the city quickly and efficiently for a very reasonable price. There’s also a great bus service, ideal for just hopping on and getting off a few stops later. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to jump in a taxi, then there will be plenty on hand in the city, ready to take you and your group to your destination.

The Best Newcastle Stag Do Activities

It can be hard to know where to start when picking an activity for your Newcastle stag party, therefore we have listed the most popular and exhilarating stag do activities in the land of the Geordies.

1) Bubble Football

Climbing into a giant zorb and smashing into the groom, what more could you ask for? Bubble football has gone from an obscure scene from a Norwegian TV show into a real global sport with its own world cup. This is a great activity to get everyone in the group laughing and bonding, while it works for larger groups, with many being booked for 16 people.

2) Paintballing

An absolute classic of the stag do world, paintballing is another team bonding experience where you can either work as a solid unit, or split into groups. Whatever happens, make sure you all aim at the groom! There are some great courses in Newcastle where the paintballing can take place.

3) Footgolf

Having a cracking game of golf with the lads is a great way to pass the day in the sun, but why not take on this footie alternative? With giant holes built into the golf course, you can take on multiple holes and see who comes out the champion. This event is also decently priced and works well for groups of all sizes, while you can also split the groups up if you have a lot of people coming. Another benefit is that many of the golf venues also have a bar area, for a cheeky pint after smashing some shots.

4) It's A Geordie Knockout

It's A Knockout has been one of the top selling activities for both stag and hen do's over the past decade, however this is a Geordie spin on the traditional TV show based activity. With plenty of inflatables, a giant dart board and a crazy course to make your way across, you will be in hysterics. This is a brilliant activity to do in fancy dress, but make sure everyone brings comfy shoes so they're not slipping all over the place.

5) Bottomless Brunch

Whether you opt for some prosecco or the pints of lager, this activity will certainly get the group buzzing, as you chug down as many drinks as possible in the 90 minute session. Of course, to stop the group getting too drunk, there will be a tasty menu available, with a meal for each person included. Considering you'll most likely be doing something active during the day, this is a great activity to mix in to layer the stomach before the heavy drinking truly starts. We have an ever growing list of bottomless brunch options available, so make sure to have a look through our list of the best.

6) Bar Crawl

Sometimes the classics are the best! If you want to skip past the daytime activities and want to go straight into the deep end, then the party pub crawl is a great option, taking you on a four hour trip across some of the best and wildest bars in Newcastle with your very own guides. You will get welcome shots at each bar and will play multiple games, as well as having guest entry at the nightclub at the end.

7) White Water Rafting

Taking a place on almost everyone's bucket list, white water rafting is one of the most breath-taking and exciting experiences you can have, taking on the rapids at fast pace. If you have members of the group that are a little nervous, there are also calmer rapids, while your guide will be keeping everyone safe. This activity comes at a higher price, but it will leave everyone looking back at the memories and you'll undoubtedly have one of the best stag do's ever, going down in stag legend.

8) Gorge Walking

How is your fear of heights? If you live for an adventure and your friends are the same, then why not try out this immense experience, taking on the beautiful natural world in all its glory. The organiser will also be on hand to take a photo of the group and individually while you're in the action. All the equipment is provided, as well as transport to and from the gorge.

9) Footdarts

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. This activity is often set at a venue with a supplier who can offer multiple activities, so if you're hoping to do numerous activities and experiences without the travel, this could be the one for you.

10) Murder Mystery

You will be given a number of clues as you try to work out who the hell is the murderer. This 1.5 hour activity is amazing for the day time before the drinking starts, as you work together to try to crack the case. This activity requires a minimum of 8 people, making it ideal for a stag do in Newcastle.

White Water Rafting

Gorge Walking

Another activity that thrill seeking groups will love is Gorge Walking! With this heart pumping session, you’ll head out to the picturesque Northumberland gorges, where you’ll take on natural rockslides and 15ft leaps of faith, that's accompanied by plenty of jumps and step offs, before having a dip under the 70ft waterfall!

Escape Game

Here’s an activity that’ll truly test your brain! Escape games are all the rage at the moment, and ‘Never Give Up’ in Newcastle is no exception.

The Best Bars and Pubs in Newcastle for a Stag Do
