11 Liverpool Stag Do Ideas and Weekend Activities

When it comes to planning the perfect stag do in the UK, there are many reasons why Liverpool is a go-to destination for a fun weekend away.

From its vibrant nightlife to thrilling activities, this iconic city has everything you need to give the groom-to-be a send-off to remember. 

Let’s dive into the best stag do activities that Liverpool has to offer, ensuring your celebration is nothing short of legendary.

1. Zorb football

An activity that’s had a recent uptick in popularity, especially when it comes to stag dos, is Zorb football (or bubble football).

This highly energetic, and highly sweaty, sport is the perfect way to let off some steam and give everyone the chance to gang up on the stag.

As part of the zorbing you’ll be dressed up in big inflatable bubbles and take to a five-a-side football pitch for an absolutely chaotic hour or so.

There are several places in Liverpool where you can try out Zorb football, including Power League.

2. Footy frenzy

Carrying on the football theme, any stag do in Liverpool should make the most of the city’s famous football heritage. 

Home to two Premier League giants, Liverpool FC and Everton FC, there are plenty of ways to spend a few hours around the impressive stadiums.

Arrange a stadium tour for the lads, or if you’ve perfectly planned the date of your weekend in the city, you could catch a live match to immerse yourselves in the electric atmosphere.

3. Peaky Blinders

Everybody’s aware that Peaky Blinder is set in Birmingham, but fans of the show will be pleased to know that Liverpool is full of potential activities related to it.

Parts of the series were shot in and around Liverpool, due to its well-preserved industrial architecture, and it’s possible to book onto a tour that takes you around many of the filming locations.

During the evening, you can even visit a Peaky Blinders-themed bar near the Baltic Market – the perfect place to act out your inner Tommy Shelbies.

Plus, if you’re in need of a fancy dress idea, overcoats and flat caps are a fun choice for a big stag party.

4. Beatles Extravaganza

Liverpool is synonymous with The Beatles, and no stag do is complete without a tribute to the Fab Four. Even if you don’t intend to, there’s no getting away from the activities, museums, and even street art that celebrates the iconic band.

You can embark on a Beatles-themed tour, exploring the Cavern Club and other iconic sites associated with the legendary band, such as Penny Lane. If you’re in need of a daytime activity, the Beatles Story is also a fantastic option.

The Cavern Club is a must-visit site anyway and is easy to drop in on during a lad’s night out in Liverpool. Located on Mathew Street, you’ll find many other clubs and bars around so you’re never short on options of things to do as part of the stag do.

5. Pub crawls

While a good pub crawl requires some planning, it’s also a great way to do something that doesn’t require booking ahead, and fortunately Liverpool is full of fantastic pubs and bars.

The Ropewalks and Mathew Street areas are particularly famous for their bustling pubs and vibrant nightlife, and it’s possible to get several stops in without having to walk very far at all. 

However, if you don’t mind stretching your legs (which is also a sensible way to get some fresh air between rounds), a pub crawl is also a fun way to create your own walking tour of the city, and you can map out routes that take you past some of its iconic sites, such as the waterfront.

6. Casinos

For a touch of sophistication and a sprinkle of James Bond glamour, head to one of Liverpool’s upscale casinos.

Whether you’re a seasoned gambler or a novice, the city’s casinos offer a range of games to suit every taste, and it’s one of the best Liverpool stag do ideas if you’re at a loss for things to do in the evening.

Make sure to set a spending limit, and perhaps work in some games for the group – whoever goes bust first buys the next round?

7. Comedy clubs

Laughter is the best medicine, especially when it comes to celebrating a stag do. Liverpool boasts a thriving comedy scene, with numerous clubs showcasing top-notch stand-up acts.

Check out Hot Water Comedy Club, for example, where you can see a range of acts or even join an open mic night.

Book tickets for your stag party, settle into a night of hilarity, and try not to heckle too much!

8. Virtual shooting range

Visit Point Blank for one of the best activities to include during a fun stag do weekend in Liverpool and you won’t be disappointed.

This virtual shooting range is a great way to kick off an evening (and stay dry if the weather’s looking bad), with a variety of challenges to try out.

You’ll have a selection of guns available to use as you blast away at various targets on the 132-inch screens and move through challenging courses.

Get your trigger finger ready and be prepared to face off against each other to become the best sharpshooter in Liverpool.

9. Clubbing

While it may not be one of the most original activities for a stag do in Liverpool, the city is full of fantastic clubs that are worth visiting if you fancy a drink and a boogie.

The Ropewalks area is full of great venues, and in the evening it feels like the strip of Mediterranean resort with all the comings and goings.

Heebie Jeebies on Seel Street is one such club that’s great to visit, providing fun tunes, reasonably-priced drinks, and even live music.

10. Go-karting

Another classic stag do activity is go-karting, and there are several spots in and around Liverpool where you can have a go, such as with Team Sport which has the longest track in the city.

While go-karting is fun for everyone and even one of the best things to do in Liverpool for couples, this is the perfect activity for a big group and a great way to let out your competitive side.

Better yet, you can then come up with some prizes for the winners and dish out punishments for the losers later on. That said, it’s probably better to do it before a night of heavy drinking than the morning after one!

11. Fun on the water

For an adventurous stag party, Liverpool’s iconic waterfront offers an array of water-based activities, especially during summer. 

Set sail on the Mersey River with a private boat charter, book onto the ferry over the Mersey, or try your hand at water skiing for an adrenaline-packed afternoon.

Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a first-time water enthusiast, Liverpool’s maritime offerings are sure to make a splash.
