What Can I Expect

Try your hand at Medieval archery and learn to shoot just like the King's archers in the days of the Hundred Years War! This is authentic and historic archery at its very best, with you being taught how to handle a hand-crafted longbow.

You've probably seen modern-day archery with a recurve bow on the telly (as it's an Olympic Sport) and you may have had a go at this form of archery. However, it's really quite unusual to find a centre that teaches traditional longbow archery, let alone specialise in the skill.

Tom and Adam, the duo behind these experiences are both very talented. Tom has been fashioning longbows and arrows for over 40 years and his handcrafted wooden bows made from solid staves of wood are works of art in themselves. This pain-staking attention to historic detail is because they want to offer the most authentic experiences possible. Indeed, one of the main activities here is historical re-enactments from the Hundred Wars period.

Being out 'in the field', as it were, is Adam's domaine. He loves nothing more than to introduce, captivate and motivate newcomers to the sport of traditional archery with longbows. He'll explain how and why a longbow behaves differently to recurves and give you all the top tips you could ever need in your mission to be one of the King's gifted archers.

We are offering three different longbow archery experiences for you to chose from. The taster gives you a two-hour introduction to longbows. The three-hour masterclass goes more in-depth with everything from shooting positions, to learning how to speed shot up to 12 arrows on target in one minute. The five-hour experience fully immerses you into the world of re-enactment and traditional skills, turning you into a Medieval archery master or mistress of the longbow.

Really enjoyed a day's long bow experience with .Now Strike.
I was in a group of about a dozen fellow archers. The tuition was good and we had plenty of chance to shoot, in several different formats , all interspersed with a graphic account of a famous historic battle.
I would definitely recommend it and indeed I would like to return.
The staff at Into the Blue were very helpful and friendly and i'd also use them again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
