York has more character and history contained within its walls than most could dream of, but don’t be fooled, behind the beautiful exterior is an impressive array of activities and nightlife. With more pubs than there are days in the year your group will be spoilt for choice, bring your Viking stag night to York.
Around every corner you'll bump into signs of York's rich past, the Castle, York Minster, the Dungeon, and you can journey through the reconstruction of the Viking-age as they would have looked (and smelled) 1000 years ago.
Mixing the old with the new, stag nights in York are outnumbered heavily by hen parties, join them screaming on the Ghost Tour, drinking vodka shots at Revolution Bar and having a blast from the past at the retro nightclub.
Fancy dress - swap those stag antlers for Viking horns.
Within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, an impressive array of York stag activities are on your doorstep. Boys toys from quads to clays, stunt driving to combat archery.
In town you can cruise the River Ouse, place your bets at York Races, stitch-up-the-stag in York Dungeons, get creative with our female nude models, take a mixology lesson in a cocktail bar or do the megamix challenge of bubble football and beer goggle football.
With a bar for every day of the year, heaving beer gardens and the famous run of drinking establishments on Micklegate, you'll have ample opportunity to sample York Brewery's finest. A pint of Guzzler 3.6% or Centurion's Ghost Ale 5.4% will hit the spot.
You’ll find an abundance of brasserie style establishments, from the cool and sophisticated with river views on Bridge Street to steak and gents club venues for a complete stag night.
