Longbow Archery review

My husband and I were given this as a joint present. We didn't know what to expect and to be honest it exceeded our expectations. The instructor was excellent and provided an enthusiastic history of longbow archery while we walked across the Essex countryside firing our arrows at the imaginary French enemy! The whole group improved in accuracy and ability over the course of the day.

Great experience

I bought this experience day for my partner and ended up doing it myself as well as some spaces were still available. We had a great time. Adam, the instructor is really friendly and made the day thoroughly enjoyable. We've been taught how to shoot arrows with a long bow, Adam organised mini games which were all really fun. The instructor/owner is truly passionate about archery and his enthusiasm is contagious. I really recommend this experience. My boyfriend had a great day and finally realised his dream to shoot a long bow.
