Longbow Taster

2 hours of fun historical archery

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! The Medieval bowmen of England and Wales became the first specialised soldier in the English army and stories of their victories at battles such as Crecy & Agincourt immortalised them 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.
