Palm trees, pubs and piers. Brighton stag weekends are part of our great British heritage! For decades, grooms to be have flocked to London-by-the-sea to blow off steam and celebrate their upcoming nuptials. There's a good reason Brighton stag weekends have been going strong for donkey's years. They combine city and beach break in one very tidy package. Brighton offers the best bits of a traditional British seaside holiday with none of the naffness.
