Have a go - Longbow Archery

Test your archery skills whilst shooting real longbows or shorter longbows for little people .

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

One again we have the Wessex Longbowmen returning to Montacute giving you a chance to test your skills in firing these ancient weapons . They will also have on display a whole host of Tudor reproduction weapons and other paraphernalia that will fascinate and educate the young and old alike.

The archers will be at Montacute House every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10.30am to 4pm through the summer holiday (26 July to 31 August 2022).

Please note: There is a charge of £4-00 to fire 6 arrows

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:

  Gift Aid Standard
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

Please note...

Free entry for National Trust members.
