GoT Annie Leibovitz

I don’t know about you, but I am beyond gutted that there won’t be a new series of Game of Thrones for ages. It’s the best thing to happen to TV in years, and I watch it on repeat – no shame. I know the story like the back of Jamie Lannister’s hand. Or something more reliable…

There’s an army of die hard fans out there who’d love to get involved in a bit of Westerosi role play, so what if I said to you grooms that you could have a GoT stag do from the experts at StagWeb? Visit the King’s Road and Winterfell? You’d be sending them a raven (or email, if you insist) to confirm you’re on your way, right? Right!!

“I’ve always hated the bells. They ring for horror. A dead king, a city under siege…” – Lord Varys
“A wedding.” – Tyrion Lannister

While you may be gambling with your happiness and life where a Game of Thrones wedding is concerned, you should be safe at a stag do. Party hard as you mean to go on! Here are some of the brilliant packages on offer:

  • Battle of Thrones School – Learn how to handle weapons like ‘The Hound’ or ‘Jamie Lannister’ without the fear of being killed off in the next series or losing a limb.
  • Hire A Castle – Stags can hire an entire castle exclusively for their weekend. At the end of their stay, each stag will become a bona fide “Lord” with a legal title and landholding.
  • Game of Thrones Tour – Visit some the most iconic settings from the show. Highlights include Castle Black, Storm’s End, Lordsport, and more.
  • Medieval Banquet – The groom’s companions can eat, drink and be merry as they toast the groom’s own forthcoming Red Wedding with a medieval-themed banquet.

There are ten GoT inspired packages throughout the UK & Europe to choose from, including archery and axe throwing, climbing, abseiling and even relaxing baths filled with beer, fit for a kingslayer.

StagWeb’s digital marketing manager, Andy Viveash, said “At StagWeb we’re all huge Game of Thrones fans and seeing as so many grooms are also hooked, we wanted to create something as a fitting tribute to the show that wouldn’t involve the stags having to fight the Unsullied Army or drink Dothraki beer.”
