Archery and Axe Throwing for Two at Hazlewood Castle, North Yorkshire
The venerable arts of axe throwing and archery may no longer be required for keeping marauders out of castles, but they're still brilliant fun and a great test of technique. Travel back in time to Hazelwood, where friendly, professional instructors will welcome and introduce participants of all levels to the techniques required to hit the target with either weapon. Then get ready for exciting archery and axe throwing games with fellow participants, before a grand finale in both sports. Hit the apple perched precariously on Susie the mannequin's head with a bow, and then hit a very special target with the Tomahawk axe and find out just how much has been learned!
