Archery Taster

2023 Dates Availabe from March onwards

Two hours of archery based fun for those who want to get outdoors into nature and make some long lasting memories. Our archery sessions are safe, fun and educational so there is guaranteed something for everyone.

When you hear “English Longbow” you’ll no doubt have an image of plucky outlaws and brave archers standing against unthinkable odds with nothing but their bow to keep them safe! Victories such as Crecy & Agincourt immortalised the English archer forever in history books, stories, plays and modern film.

Now Strike Archery Ltd proudly offers you the unique opportunity to learn the skills of your ancestors who lived some 600 years before you. Shooting one of our longbows is much more than just archery, it is connecting with the past and embracing your heritage through a simple wooden bow.

Learn to shoot a traditional English longbow by challenging yourself against a series of targets at progressive distances. Become competent with the bow learning under one of our dedicated instructors before being able to practice your new skill.

Outdoor experiences take place at our partner venues within a radius around Chelmsford and not at our office address. Please take note of the address via the confirmation email
