The Agincourt Experience

A special event to mark the 605th anniversary

On a cold October day in 1415, one of the greatest underdog stories unfolded, the men who stood on that day became legends and Henry V of England secured his place in history.

Limited to 6 individuals per group, for the first time we are teaming up with Order of the Blade Ltd and Reach the Core Ltd to bring you this very special day. The Agincourt experience is a unique opportunity to experience all parts of Medieval combat that lead to the victory Shakespeare wrote about. Join us in the middle of the siege of Harfeur as our desperate men quickly train you up for battle. 

You will spend time in each of the following areas:

  • Learning the great longbow with our battle hardened Master Archer
  • Swinging swords with our Combat Master
  • Learning to shoot a full powered Ballista and Trebuchet with our Siege Captain

Before a complimentary hot authentic lunch is served you will have defeated the city of Harfleur. Don’t relax too much because King Henry himself may well be strolling around to keep his troops motivated before we head to the battlefields for the afternoon activities….

Suitable for ages 8+

We went for a longbow experience day and it was great – even better than expected. The organisers had put a lot of thought into the day so it was fun, engaging, and we learnt a lot too. Definitely recommend.

The pitch was excellent, not too heavy and connected with the archery. Everyone enjoyed the tour through the battle and its relevance to the Long Bow. As adult spectators, the family thought it was really fun. As for Sam, he has remembered all of the key facts and has already started telling his friends.


I would like to say it was a fantastic day and both Kay and myself enjoyed it thoroughly. Issuing coins was a good idea and made it a bit more competitive without being to serious. I might even book the same event myself again it was so enjoyable
