About
Located in the centre of our grounds, our archery range can accommodate 15 plus targets from standard target faces all the way through to dartboard faces. We also have a few 3-D targets available to aim at. Seeing our foam Meerkat take an arrow to the face and then get back up ready for another one is a delight to see! About The Sessions The sessions start with a safety brief from a GNAS or Archery GB qualified instructor and then we let the arrows fly. Sessions normally start from 10 metres back. However, as the session progresses so does the distance, reaching up to 30 metres. We have plenty of options for different games to play. Alternatively, you can just focus on the Gold in preparation for the competition at the end of the session. We have standard re-curve bows for the adults and for kids smaller traditional bows. You get to shoot as many arrows as you can in the allotted time. With a large selection of bows, your group can all shoot at the same time.

Great fun!
We visited yesterday (10th of September) to try archery with a varied skill group. We were met at the carpark by a mini van that took us to the location and it was all very well organised. One of our party recently had a knee operation but was still able to enjoy the session which was a bonus.

We began with some complimentary refreshments and were then taken to the archery range and given a very good tutorial of what to do. I’m so sorry I can’t remember our instructors name, however he’d apparently only been doing the sessions a few weeks and I personally wouldn’t have known as he knew his stuff!

We all had great fun including my friend who has a lot more experience than the rest of the group. We were given progressively trickier ranges and objectives and ended with a competition which was good fun, I’d actually say we all improved our accuracy considerably following the guidance provided in just one hour!

If you want something a bit different to do while on holiday, this is a great option and no more expensive than a round of drinks near the beach.

Thanks guys!

A great experience with friendly and patient staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they really focused on ensuring we enjoyed ourselves and progressed in the one hour we had (re archery). Only 20 mins from the centre of Brighton and we’ll worth doing if you’ve a few days in Brighton

This was such a fun experience. It was just me and my Mum for the hour and we had a good laugh learning how to shoot the arrows and learning how to aim better.
The instructor was really friendly, a good teacher, and put my Mum at ease really quickly (she can be anxious in new situations).
I would recommend this to anyone in the area looking for a fun activity.

Myself and my partner did Archery and Air Rifle Shooting here. We had so much fun and would recommend this to anybody looking to do something out of the ordinary going to the beach or shopping etc.

Gary was very proficient in explaining everything and also made us laugh with the jokes too. Thank you for a great time and we will definitely be back again

10/10 would recommend. We arrived in the car park and was picked up in a mini bus and taken up the chalk track. Everyone was so friendly and upon arrival we were offered a tea and coffee. We were then taken over to the archery section and were given a thorough and helpful tutorial. The man teaching us was so happy to help, chatty and friendly. They were very generous with our hour session and we were the last ones left I was worried they were going to rush us but that was not the case at all! They offered us tea and coffee before we left and were so so friendly! So cheap and so so worth the money for something different to do!
