There’s nothing like a blast through the Warwickshire countryside on a quad bike for blowing off steam. Just what the stag doctor ordered to remedy the effects of a big night on Birmingham’s legendary Broad Street, a cross-country trek will clear heads and get the adrenaline going. We’ve found a proper belter of an outdoor pursuits site that’s near the NEC but has 160 acres of grounds so feels like it’s in the heart of the country.
What makes this quad biking session better than most? Well, for starters you’ll be tackling an obstacle course that’s actually within an ancient woodland trail. Why choose between skills test and country trek when you can get the best of both worlds?
Jump on automatic Yamaha Grizzly quad bikes, get up to speed with a quick practice session and then hit the track and go exploring. Rain, shine or snow, these bikes are easy to operate and can handle everything from mud and water to hills and sharp drops. There are plenty of surprises, and the terrain will definitely challenge you!
Which member of the stag party will be first past the finish post? Place your bets, gents!

Learn the basics of archery with Olympic-style bows and arrows. Robin Hood would’ve had a field day with this top quality gear. You’ll master the basic shot and compete to get the highest score surrounded by awesome scenery. Located on the outskirts of Birmingham city, our favourite outdoor activity centre is set within 16th century woodland. You couldn’t ask for a more appropriate place to try your hand at archery.
Anyone can have a go at archery, which makes it a great choice if you’ve got young bloods and more mature stags coming to Birmingham. The instructors will supply everyone with bows and arrows to suit size and weight, so you’ve got the best possible chance of smashing the targets.
