Take up the challenge
At our multi-zone archery centre, you will be thoroughly coached by one of our friendly staff, who will lead your group of brave adventurers around our ranges.
We love working with groups, but under current regulations we can only accept bookings from members of the same household. A few changes have been made to our experiences to ensure that you're protected, but luckily archery is one of the most Covid-safe sports around. We hope to get back to our full group programme once it's safe to do so, so stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates.
If you visit us now, you will still enjoy the experience you can always expect at White Dragon Archery: shooting in beautiful green surroundings with expert coaching, hearing the thud of your arrows into the target and the happy chatter of your companions, and perhaps spotting some Essex wildlife through the trees as you make your way around the ranges.
You'll need to come dressed appropriately for the weather on the day with strong outdoor shoes. Trousers are best, preferably with a belt to hang your quiver (arrow holder) from.
All our archery experiences begin with a thorough safety briefing and instruction in how to shoot safely, but we aim to have you shooting as soon as possible, usually in under ten minutes.
You will be supplied with a bow, a quiver of arrows and an armguard for your personal use. Everything is cleaned and sanitised between experiences, so you can shoot safely using our kit.
After a short training session with some fun targets, our coaches will take you through our outdoor zones. You'll tackle various scenarios, including the chance to shoot at up to 100 metres or more, depending on your skill (or luck!).
Our equipment makes it easy to pick up the basics quickly and you don't need to be strong. Even younger archers can experience the joy of shooting at long distance and getting to see their arrows flying high and far.
We are open all year, except Christmas. Depending on Government regulations, we hope to open our indoor ranges for the winter and as all our experiences are fully refundable if they have to be cancelled due to changes in coronavirus guidance, you can book in confidence for any date you choose.
"Just had my kid's 10th birthday party here, it was brilliant! All the kids (14 of them) enjoyed it and the host Mark was fantastic, really engaging and very good at explaining activities to the children! Would definitely recommend!
Made our day! Thank you!" - Katherine
"Myself and my husband had a fantastic archery experience here. We have done an archery experience before but White Dragon Archery knocked it out of the park." - Laura
