ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Medieval Longbow Archery Lesson in Essex

Learn to fire arrows from a longbow, just like a medieval archer, during this fun two-hour lesson in Chelmsford, Essex.

This fun two-hour archery lesson in Chelmsford, Essex, will teach you to fire arrows from a traditional English longbow—just like a medieval archer! Take aim at a series of challenging targets and improve your accuracy with the help of an experienced archery instructor.

Lessons are organised by the region’s top archery and historical experience company. They’ve made it their mission to preserve the knowledge and skills of Britain’s medieval longbowmen—bringing history to life! In the 14th and 15th centuries, the English longbow played a decisive role in military victories over the French, perhaps most famously at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. Back then, it took years to master, but with your instructor’s help, you’ll learn the basics in just a couple of hours! Once they’ve demonstrated the proper technique, you’ll practice shooting arrows against a series of targets at progressively greater distances. Your instructor will continue to offer tips for improving accuracy, and by the time the sessions concludes, you’ll be amazed how far you’ve come!

The Medieval Longbow Archery Lesson in Essex is a unique experience day for history buffs, young and old. Vouchers make thoughtful gifts for kids (8+), dads and other halves, so go on, surprise someone special today!
