Cardiff Archery

Cardiff has a fine historical association with armed combat. Womanby Street and Dumballs Road were named after Viking invaders. And the warlike Silures tribe held the area against the Romans for years.

Now it's your turn!

OK, so you won't actually be defending the walled city against invaders - but you will get to handle and fire a bow and arrow. And if that doesn't make you feel like a warlord, or Welsh revolutionary, nothing will.

Archery is one of the hardest stag weekend sports. It's also one of the best. Forget gunpowder and shotgun shells - if you want to feel like a real man, you need a longbow and some spear-tipped projectiles!

On your archery afternoon, you'll be taught by professional instructors. Learn the basics of archery safety and technique, beginning with handling the bow and nocking the arrow ("nocking" is putting the arrow on the string, ready to fire). Then it's time to perfect your stance, pick the finger grip that works for you, and let fly.

Just 20 minutes away from Cardiff city centre, the archery site has everything you need for a royally medieval time! You'll be firing at traditional targets, and the leading shot at the end of the afternoon earns the right to be called Owain Glyndwr. Awesome.
