Travel - Spy something a little different for a stag in Liverpool

Anfield Stadium, Liverpool
My best friend is getting married and I am in charge or organising his stag weekend. We are thinking of going to Liverpool as we have heard that the nightlife is great and that there is plenty to do during the day. Can you recommend some things for us to do?

Organising a stag party is never easy as you are usually dealing with a group of varying ages and interests. The good news is that Liverpool is an excellent choice and the perfect place to bid farewell to single life. The city is full of things to do and see and with some of the best museums, sporting events, music attractions and nightclubs in the UK, you won’t be stuck for ideas.

There is no shortage of daytime stag activities in Liverpool with both indoor and outdoor options offering competitive and interactive ideas. Bring out the competitive streak in the group by organising clay pigeon shooting, paintballing, archery or air rifling competitions and enjoy hours of outdoor fun at a reasonable price.

For something a little bit different, channel your inner James Bond or Jason Bourne for the afternoon and take part in Espionage Liverpool. This unique activity turns your group into teams of spies challenged with taking over the city, one district at a time. An afternoon of mental and physical exertion has to be rewarded so the afternoon includes a few stop offs at the pub too! Prices start from £32pp, based on a group of around 15 people.

If you prefer something a little more relaxed, then you might be interested in an afternoon of wine tasting in a grade 1 listed building. The Britannia Pavilion overlooks the famous Albert Dock and this wine bar, deli and shop provides a stunning intimate atmosphere for a refined, relaxed and enjoyable stag wine tasting in Liverpool.  

A visit to Liverpool wouldn’t be complete without paying homage to the birthplace of the Beatles and the city that shaped their early music and lives. A visit to the award-winning Beatles Experience is a must, as it charts the success of the band from their early days in Hamburg through to international stardom, eventual break-up and subsequent solo careers. The experience includes life-size reconstructions of the Cavern Club and Abbey Road Studios.

Liverpool is known for its active nightlife and there are plenty of excellent pubs and nightclubs to choose from, with somewhere to suit every taste. For metal and rock lovers, The Krazy House situated on Wood Street is the place to be, while for those looking for alternative music, Le Bateau on Duke Street is a great pub with a chilled=out atmosphere. When the Irish are away from home a visit to an Irish pub is a must, so Flanagan’s Apple on Matthew Street is where you should go for live performances, a good pint of Guinness and good craic to be enjoyed by all.

If you’re a football fan, be sure to visit the famous Liverpool FC Anfield Stadium. Visitors can take a tour of the grounds and the club museum, including the famous trophy room.
