Archery for families

Girl enjoying archery

We’re working with Archery GB to offer thousands of families the chance to try archery this summer.

Visitors to 14 of our places can get a taster of the sport using specially designed equipment – given to the National Trust by Archery GB. We hope to inspire 26,000 people to try archery at our places this year.

" In the past our places would have been the site of battles between armies. Now the only fight will be between parents and their kids as they challenge each other to hit the bullseye. "
- Mel Handford, Sports Partnership Manager

1.    Speke Hall, Liverpool
