Have-a-go archery and historical crafts
Come along and meet our very own historic archers and learn about spinning and weaving and other crafts from past times.
- Booking not needed
- Admission applies
If you wish, you can let arrows fly (£2.50 for six arrows) at balloons tied to targets. Get a feel of history by viewing and handling replicas of armour, weapons, arrow heads and longbows.
You can't miss the displays and activities in the hand-painted pavilion tent with the royal standard and Tudor rose flags fluttering in the wind. Of course, if you would rather enjoy a more peaceable pastime you can throw some 'quoits'.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
