Is this the ultimate stag weekend?
There are few greater honours than being asked to be someone’s best man. You’ve spent the better portion of your youth together, shared experiences over the years that have forged a strong bond, and know each other inside out, so who better to usher your buddy into the next significant stage of his life. But being the best man also carries certain responsibilities, not least of which is organising the stag weekend.
This is a British rite of passage, where groups of men gather to give the groom a sending-off he’ll remember for the rest of his married life. Usually beer-soaked, often involving activities that he won’t want to be shared during the speeches, and always a lot of fun, it does though involve quite a lot of organisation behind the scenes. The best man needs to assemble the group, sort out the transport and accommodation, book the activities and collect the money.
It can be a pretty stressful weekend for the best man all told, knowing that the success or failure of the stag rests on his shoulders. Which is why all-in-one activity centres such as Adventure Wales in Bridgend are the answer to his prayers.
Here you will find all the most essential components of the modern classic stag weekend – quad biking and paintballing, plus various other adrenaline-fuelled challenges that everyone will love. Also in Bridgend it’s possible to do a high-ropes course, so plenty of scope for Tarzan calls and monkey impressions, and paddle-boarding, which is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s most popular water-borne sports.
So the whole gang can spend a happy day blasting each other with paint, racing round the quad bike track and swinging from the trees, without having to travel great distances. Then all you need afterwards is the choice of a few good pubs within easy reach to round things off, something of which Bridgend has no shortage.
The perfect stag weekend? Not far off in my book.
