Learn how to hold a bow, aim and shoot on our archery range or go full combat with Archery Tag.

Feel the strength of the bow, the speed of the arrow and experience the sheer joy as you hit your target. The vast expanse of Betteshanger Park makes ideal surrounds for archery. There are a number of different options available for budding Robin Hood's or Katniss Everdeen's:


Our Archery range is just perfect for beginners. The distance over which you shoot and the poundage of the bows is set to suit individuals.

Our qualified instructors teach you how to shoot with a basic recurve bow, just like those used in Olympic competition. With one-to-one tuition you’ll learn how to hold the bow, the correct body stance, aim and shoot for your first few arrows before progression onto a three arrow balloon shoot and six arrow competition. 

Archery makes a unique birthday party experience, suits school groups, team building and group visits and is available from £9 per person.

Archery TAG

Fresh from the USA, Archery TAG is Betteshanger’s newest outdoor activity. 

The latest phenomenon in friendly combat sporting is guaranteed to be fast, fun and exciting. Combining elements from paintball, dodgeball, and archery, Archery Tag is a team-based game played with bows and specially designed foam-tipped arrows. 

Players divide into two teams and hide behind inflatable bunkers. The aim of the game is to be the first team to knock out the centres of a 5 spot target on the opponent's side of the field. 

Archery TAG is intense enough for thrill seekers and safe enough for children. 

Archery TAG is for players aged 12 or over and has a minimum group size of 10. Sessions start from £12 per person, per hour.
