We did the 3D Archery with our 2 kids aged 10 and 12. It was great fun. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone. The owner was a great teacher and very knowledgeable and the other staff were brilliant too.

Not really, would still involve a hefty walk. Best to drive or take a taxi.
