A rugby-themed trip to Cardiff certainly makes for a great stag weekend, but what a lot of stag parties don't realise is that there aredozens of additional activities going on in the Welsh capital to keep them occupied throughout their whole trip. Cardiff's proximity to the sea, mountains and valleys make it the quintessential boys-only adventure destination with plenty of outdoor activities on hand all year round. In town, there's also a very active nightlife scene sure to kick-start any stag party weekend.
To remain close to the action, it's best to stay in Central Cardiff. There are a lot of accommodation options in town within walking distance to pubs and nightclubs – a definite plus for Cardiff stag weekends. The city's night scene comes alive on the weekends, especially on Saturday night when loads of stag and hen parties as well as students, locals and holidaymakers let loose and hop between the town's various night-time hot spots. Depending on your stag party's preference, you can either grab a pint at a pub or spend the night dancing at one of Cardiff's state-of-the-art nightclubs.
During the daytime,stag parties have a choice between a wealth of options:
As the home of Welsh Rugby, Cardiff stag weekends that coincide with a match at the Millennium Stadium are
an experience not to be forgotten, especially if it is one of the Six Nations matches. Otherwise, Welsh Premiership rugby can be watched at the home of Cardiff Blues at the Cardiff City Stadium.
In addition to watching rugby and taking part in traditional activities, it's possible to embark on some outdoor adventure activities whilst you here. To blow away the cobwebs of the day before or just to make your weekend as memorable as possible, your party can try surfing, kayaking and rafting trips from Cardiff. Mountain activities like abseiling and rock climbing in the nearby Brecon Mountains are other popular options as are coasteering and gorge walking. Packages especially designed for stag parties add another element of fun to the trip by incorporating fancy dress, offering photos of the entire experience and other bespoke options. Transportation and knowledgeable area guides round out a perfect stag weekend.
Cardiff really has it all for stag parties, especially when considering all the extreme sporting options available. Partaking in an alternative activity like raft building, abseiling or even scuba diving will escalate any stag party to the next level, and create memories with close friends that will truly last a lifetime.
