Book online below and receive a gift voucher to use within 12 months.


£10 per person. All equipment is provided.
What can I expect?

During your hour of archery you'll be shown the basics of using the bow and arrows by your instructor, including how to comfortably hold the bow, nock the arrow and then loose. The targets you're aiming at will be set some distance away, so it'll take skill and concentration to successfully hit the target faces on the boss - let alone hit gold!

Everything is provided for you by the team. The venue has several different sizes and types of bow, so one will be chosen to best fit you. It's a skilful sport and once you've tried it we think you will enjoy it.
