If you are looking for something a bit different to do then I would recommend this. A brilliant couple of hours spent learning archery, axe throwing and crossbow. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Our kids are 12 and 14 and it can be challenging to find things to do that they are both enthusiastic about but this really worked for all of us. We had a lovely afternoon, the handler was very engaging and patient and thought of...More
