Research by the UK’s top stag event organisers Stagzilla reveals that Brighton is the top destination for stag parties. The Sussex seaside city – often referred to as London-by-the-sea – beat two northern funpots, Newcastle and Manchester, for the title of Britain’s number one stag venue.

Brighton – the home to attractions such as Europe’s biggest extreme sports festival White Air, the UK’s most famous old pier and the country’s first nudist beach – wins day and night with pre-nuptial males.

Visit Britain confirms that for short breaks, cities are more popular with the stag brigade, whereas seaside towns are preferred for longer breaks. Maybe the success of many of the cities on the stag destination list is down to offering both – Manchester is the only city in the list that isn’t located on the coast. Meanwhile, in the summer, Cornish surfing haven Newquay rides up the stag-do destination league as the fair weather surfers head into the water.

Stagzilla’s marketing manager, Chris Walters, said: ‘Most stags parties that choose Newquay will book surfing so they are looking for specific activities. Others will just choose a major city so they have lots to do in the day and evening.’

1. Brighton

2. Newcastle

3. Manchester

4. Cardiff

6. Newquay (summer months)

Extreme bachelors: whats the perfect stag-do for celebrity bachelor boys?

Sunday, March 14th, 20102 Comments

george-clooney-engagedSome of the world’s most famous bachelor boys could be coming off the ‘available list’. Sorry girls. Hollywood actor George Clooney, 48, is reportedly about to play the part of a married man, while confirmed bachelor, X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell seems to have found his match.

After a half-a-century wait, he’s about to announce his engagement to Afghanistan-born girlfriend Mezghan Hussainy. And Stoke-lad-about-town Robbie Williams is also reported to be ending his long-term bachelor career by tying the knot with his US girlfriend Ayda Field. When you’ve waited so long, how should you celebrate your stag do? Adrenamag has a few suggestions for our star bachelor boys’ last night of frolicking freedom.

Simon Cowell – off-Rd Dirt Buggies: Mr Tell-Like-It-Is Simon Cowell is renowned for his competitive nature. His stag-do needs to be fast, full throttle, and loud. That’s why we’ve gone for Dirt Buggy racing. And, when his friends let him win, he can bury his head in the sand,  feeling he’s the fastest celebrity on the planet. He’d also have every chance to comment on the performance of his friends as they race through the dirt: ‘That’s truly awful. You’re never going to make a Dirt Buggy racer. Try a career in pop music or something.’

Robbie Williams – zorbing. The former Take That star has led a roller-coaster career, so why not have one last twirl before he heads for a more serene path? He’d be able to exercise those vocal cords, wet or dry zorbing. And, for someone who has often been accused of living in a celebrity bubble, a real life bubble may bring him down to earth and Let Him Entertain his friends.

George Clooney  – white water rafting. Environmentalist and political activist, Clooney needs a carbon neutral activity. Gravity-powered white water rafting would be just fine, even better if he and his friends cycled or Segwayed there.  Cool-as-a-refrigerated-cucumber Clooney could impress his pals with his unruffled suave manner as they ride the rapids. And, because he’d be alone in the wilderness with his buds, his fiancée Italian model and actress Elisabetta Canalis wouldn’t have to worry about all those admiring females that Clooney is famous for attracting.
