Great News for UK as the British STAG DO Stays on Home Soil

WELLINGTON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Feb. 12, 2010) - Designaventure, one of the UK's leading group, stag and hen tour operators, has confirmed that the British stag dos has kept the UK's seaside towns and large cities busy and helped business thrive and survive throughout 2009 and it look like stags are going the same direction in 2010. 

Many of their stag do groups' ditched European cities in favour of full on stag activity package weekends in the UK.

The stag do parties want to attend a weekend full of excitement and adrenaline fueled activities thus keeping the boys interested and away from a Leo Sayer (all day "er") in the pub.

Even though the recession is apparently over, the pound is still very weak so staying in the UK offers much better value for money, Designaventure's stag groups are looking to spend their hard earned cash on activities such as rage buggies, canyoning, powerboating, a day at the races, hovercrafting, Zorbing and coasteering to name a few. These activities keep the mixed aged stag party group happy.

Last Year a Virgin Trains survey showed that more and more hen and stag celebrations were returning to the UK, as the average stag do cost was £90.79 per person compared to £170 per person on abroad jaunts.

Stag tours also want more than just a place to rest their head.

"We are finding more and more stag parties are wanting high end hotels to rest their bruised paintballed bodies, so they taking advantage of our great 4 star plus hotel packages before they hit the pubs and clubs in the evening" says a member of the Designaventure sales team.

"Stags causing damage to accommodation and outrage rude behavior is a extremely rare occurrence amongst our groups" he continues, "these acts are totally frowned upon by most stag group members who just want to have action packed amazing weekend away with their mates."

A mention of a stag party coming to town near you may make you want to lock up your daughters and board up your windows, well that's the general consensus isn't it? However, this is not the case; most pre booked stag weekends by companies like Designaventure go without incident. Their stag weekends are well organized activity filled days and nights that keep the stag parties entertained and out of the press!

Designaventure is a major player in the group, stag and hen tour operators market they offering bullet proof stag dos and hen party breaks throughout the UK, helping the UK's cities and seaside towns thrive.
