UK hen and stags vs overseas, if you’re considering a switch from an overseas hen do or stag party to a UK destination, here at Red7 we have loads of options and plenty of activities to choose from. Get some stag party inspiration or some hen party ideas with Red7. Whatever you want to do on your hen do or stag weekend, we can sort it!

If you’re concerned about your carbon footprint and prefer to take fewer flights, a UK hen party or stag weekend will not only save you money and time, but also mean less carbon entering the environment. Research by Hubbub, reported in The Times, found that 49 per cent of all flights taken by men aged 20 to 45 last year were for stag dos. That’s a hefty carbon footprint to contend with. More conservative data crunchers suggest it’s closer to 30 per cent — but that’s still a hell of a lot. Read more about ‘Woke’ travel by the Evening Standard here.
Both have great beaches, a bustling marina, nice weather, clean seas, great night life. Brighton (our number 2 UK destination) has bars and clubs all along the beach front playing live music. In the sunshine, it rivals Marbella any day (it’s our home town, we’re bias!)
On average, July is the warmest month in Brighton. July brings with it hot and sunny days that rarely see wet weather. As a result, the seaside city becomes an attractive option for tourists who want to take advantage of the sun by sitting on the beach.

Carbon Flight Offsetting is one of the emerging alternative approaches to cut down the environmental impact of air travel. Carbon offsetting your flight means you as a passenger voluntarily pay for a scheme that offset your flight/flights- you make up for emissions that your flight produces.
The money gained from your offsetting is then spent to alternate energy projects and to projects whichever could reduce CO2 emissions in various other industries. Find out more HERE.
