The medieval sport of kings is the perfect choice for a stag party in York! This ancient city is home to some of the oldest streets in Britain, so it's only fitting you should choose to get historic with your afternoon activity.
A York stag party without country sports would be bad form. Go back to the old school with this real test of skill, speed, strength and accuracy. Master the basics of longbow target shooting at the UK's premier archery venue, and compete for the title of Deadliest Warrior!
Located just outside York, this 34-acre centre features massive outdoor shooting covers, so even if the great British weather decides to play up you can still shoot dry.
Listen closely to your instructors to get the most from your archery afternoon. If you charge in to the event like the proverbial bull in a china shop, everything will go Pete Tong pretty quickly! Archery is way more sophisticated than the usual adrenaline-charged stag party stuff. Control, a cool head and a steady arm trump speed and brute force. Like all truly great sports, there's an art to it.
Qualified instructors will match everyone in the stag party to a longbow that's right for his body. Discover how to adopt the proper stance, learn your best grip and take aim. With a true draw, anchor, aim and loose, you should follow through to hit the bullseye!
