A Newquay Stag Weekend
Newquay is a town at the end of the world.
It is located on the remote yet beautiful Cornish coast overlooking the most dazzling golden beaches and blue seas. Newquay offers a fantastic setting and thriving nightlife which competes even with some European destinations but for a lot cheaper, no wonder why it’s so popular with tourists. If you fancy a chill night out with the boys surrounded by a lot of outdoor activities, then Newquay is the place for you.
Best Bars in Newquay
Being the hotspot for nightlife in all of Cornwall, Newquay promises to deliver a fantastic night out whether it be a chill one by the shores or a mad one at a busy bar. Newquay has some stylish bars like Whiskers, On the Rocks and the charming Smuggler’s Den Inn. The location is just brill and you will most certainly appreciate the views before your eyes and realise you’ve made a great choice. Party out loud at Berties Nightclub or have a few bevies in the more exotic Dolphin Bar.
There are many excellent restaurants offering fine cuisines from local fresh fish to a saucy rack of ribs or a delicious Cornish pasty. Most of the venues host live music and top-notch entertainment for you to enjoy. Grab a local Cornish ale or cider and you’ll end up having a dozen, they’re that good.
Travel Around Newquay
Newquay is a remote place so you’d either want to get the train there or fly. That’s right, Newquay may be a small town in the middle of nowhere but the Cornwall airport just outside 5-miles away from its centre is an excellent airport and perhaps the easiest way to get there. Between the airport and the town is a great train service which will deliver you in no time at all. At Newquay, you’ll want to be walking around, exploring every nook and cranny there is to really get the best out of the experience, besides it’s a small town anyway and easily manageable on foot.
To access activities and locations just outside the town in the beautiful yet barren wilderness, you’ll need a car or taxi. If you live within the south-west regions of England, car travel would be okay to reach the town but if you live further away (outside a 100-mile radius, let’s say) then a car would be a no go unless you really fancy a long road trip along the way.
Out with the Old, in with the Newquay
There are plenty of independent shops for you to browse for something totally unique and the usual big name stores you’d expect on a British high-street. The town has a zoo, an aquarium and its own airport just 5 miles away from the centre. Newquay is a fantastic place to be in the summer and is considered the surfing capital of the UK with hundreds of surfers visiting every year and first-class surfing schools and facilities. Face the waves with some surfing excellence! Newquay is also home to many other water sports such as whizzing around the waters on jet skis and kayaking.
You can go swimming, fishing, paintballing, cycling, anything outdoorsy you can think of really. If you’re passionate about outdoor activities and adventure, a great nightlife and the freedom to relax by breath-taking scenery then Newquay would be an ideal choice for your stag do!
