"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
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.
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.
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 woodland with 12 targets offering a variety of challenges. After we complete the woodland trail you'll get the chance to shoot down our Clout range (think super long distance, launching arrows high in the air like at Agincourt!).
Normally saved for special occasions we will now be offering the chance for all participants to shoot a couple of flaming arrows at the end of their experience creating the ultimate finale and a wonderful photo opportunity!
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 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.
