Archery is as much fun as it looks!

Ever thought you'd have made a great Robin Hood? Do you wonder if you may share the Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen's talent with a bow and arrow? Well, here's your chance to find out!

If you've ever fancied trying Archery or have tried before and wish you could do so again, why not join us at Fort Amherst in our Unrestored area for these two hour 'have-a-go' sessions under the instruction of an expert who'll ensure you have fun whilst staying safe!
