Manly things to do on your Stag Do: Manchester


Choosing a city to grace on your stag do is one heck of a job. It’s certainly not helped along by the reams and reams of ‘Things to do’s and What’s On’s of the internet world, all focusing on museums, art galleries and scenic parks, definitely not the backdrop of a stag do of the lifetime! However I spent some time sifting out the gold and polishing up some gems to bring you the very best manly daytime activities to do on your stag do in Manchester.

National Football Museum

It goes without saying that Manchester is home to famous football in the UK. Birthing two of the world’s richest teams, no boy’s trip to Manchester would be complete without a visit to its National Football Museum. Now, I know I said previously, the museum is not a stag friendly environment, but this one, along with Old Trafford’s very own museum are exceptions to this rule. Opening July 2012, the attraction is still relatively new. Crammed with sporting memorabilia, trophies and football keepsakes. Learn about the games itself and how it has developed and grown to be the most popular sport throughout the world. Explore names that need no introduction, learn about their lives and careers. The highlight being it’s ‘Football Plus’ sections which are a series of interactive stations designed to test your skills in a variety of simulated conditions. 

Old Trafford 

Staying within the sporting topic. Old Trafford football club is an absolute must. Perhaps the world’s most famous sporting venue, with thousands making the pilgrimage each year. And you can see why, even for the less football enthused it’s certainly worth the time. The Old Trafford tour allows you to take a seat in the stand, sneaky peek at the player’s lounge, and walk down the tunnel to visit the pitch side.  As mentioned before it also has its very own Old Trafford Museum. 

Manchester’s Food & Drink Festival

OK, so men aren’t all about football and other sporting activities. Men, I believe are also on our earth to consume! “Me man, me must eat” can be your stag moto for the day, whilst stomping from one food stall to another at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival. Famers markets, pop up restaurants and gourmet events will sure make sure you are not left hungry! Of course along with food comes liquid nourishment too, you’ll find yourself lingering by the homemade cider and traditionally brewed ale stalls.

Hard Rock Café

Perhaps one to be enjoyed on a different day, in order to make room for more food! Based in Manchester’s well known Printwork’s, The Hard Rock Café offers both a live music venue and American dining experience. Choose from hanging by the concert stage with some great bands, or chill in the rock lounge. However, its main attraction is its Rock ‘n’ Roll memorabilia. See a Gibson J-4S Guitar once owned by Liam Gallagher, the costumes worn by the Arctic Monkeys during their 2007 Brit Awards acceptance speech and Jimi Hendrix’s drum kit. If this isn’t enough, the café is also home to its very own family of bee’s which live on the roof! You can ask to sample Manchester’s local honey. It’s also worth noting the venue is very popular, so worth getting yourselves a ‘skip the line’ ticket to avoid those queues at the door.
