ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

The Ultimate Medieval Archer Experience in Essex

Travel back in time and experience a day in the life of a medieval archer during this immersive longbow experience in Chelmsford, Essex.

Get ready to travel back in time during this unique archery experience in Chelmsford, Essex! Experience a day in the life of a medieval longbowman, complete with archery practice, period costume and hot pottage for lunch!

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! Back then, the English longbow took years to master, but with the help of an expert instructor, you’ll learn the basics in just a few 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! This is so much more than just an archery lesson, however. You’ll also spend the day around an authentic medieval encampment; drinking from handmade goblets, donning army surcoats and receiving a wage of silver coins! At lunchtime, you’ll even enjoy a hearty meal of hot pottage accompanied by that rare and exotic spice—pepper! It’s an immersive history lesson you’ll never forget.

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