Although the night time activities for a stag do are often obvious, it can sometimes be a little more difficult to decide on what to do during the daytime. If you are planning a weekend in a bustling city, such as Newcastle, there are plenty of outdoor activities that could while away the day before you and the lads hit the town in the evening.

One thing is for sure; you need to book your accommodation in advance to guarantee you and your mates a comfortable bed for the nights you spend in the city. Utilise the internet – you can find the best rates on hotels in Newcastle here and can often unearth attractive discounts.

When choosing your stag events, the important aspects of the planning process are ensuring that your party is getting great value for money as well as well as a thoroughly enjoyable pursuit. With so many outdoor activities on offer, they can be whittled down to five that should be part of any adventure itinerary.

1. Outdoor Go Karting

Live life in the fast lane and climb behind the wheel of an outdoor go kart. Enjoy the 1200m circuit with an abundance of technical corners. With awesome speeds achieved by some of the fastest hire karts in the UK, responsive handling and in-depth race data, you can be sure to have an adrenaline-fuelled afternoon of healthy competition. With an average speed of 46mph, imagine what speeds you could really do if you put the pedal to the metal.

2. Speedball Paintball

This fast moving version of the classic paintball activity is the latest craze to hit our shores. Adjacent to the go karting track just outside Newcastle, you will find the largest speedball arena in the UK. With giant inflatable obstacles, it’ll take some quick thinking and speedy moves to avoid being shot in this fast paced, adrenaline fueled experience.

3. Quad Biking

Seventeen minutes outside of Newcastle, you will find 11 acres of carefully thought out terrain which can offer quad biking adventures to groups of thrillseekers. Top tip: take a change of clothes. You’ll be covered in mud by the end of it – guaranteed! At £41.50 for an hour trek, including fuel and liability insurance, it’s a reasonably priced activity that will get that adrenaline pumping.

4. Airsoft

Head south from Newcastle for the day, and enjoy a day out with the NSC Airsoft team at the Durham site. Similar to paintballing, but more realistic to actual military weapons, utilise the woodland terrain to your advantage whilst completing missions and challenges, trying to defeat your opponents. With true-to-life firearms and plastic pellet ammo, you can’t really get much closer to a war zone without being in one.

With plenty to choose from to occupy your stag party during the afternoons, followed by a fabulous selection of eateries and bars & clubs offering some awesome nightlife, it’s hard pressed not to want to consider Newcastle for your upcoming stag preparations.
