Brandon Country Park – Axe & Knife Throwing

(7 customer reviews)


Warning… This Target Sport is Extremely Addictive!

The Anglo-Saxons would use a specially designed throwing axe (a francisca) before the initial clash with the enemy, throwing them to create damage & havoc. During these session, you’ll not only learn how to safely & responsibly throw an axe, but to make it stick in specially prepared wooden targets, rather than an enemy!

  1. Douglas C

    My family and I visited Back to Wilderness at the Red Rooster festival. It was a real highlight of a fantastic weekend. Watching my 12-year-old daughter throw a two-handed tomahawk into a wooden target was exhilarating. She loved it too, of course. The instructors were wonderful. Very knowledgeable, patient and fun, and there wasn’t a drop of macho nonsense about the place. Very safe, very very enjoyable. Thanks for a great time.

  2. Alison Smuthy

    Such a brilliant day and experience. We felt safe and confident at all times under the professional instructions given by Ray and Matt. Will definitely be wanting to go again!


  3. Tracey

    Ray and Matt were fantastic and really out us all at ease which made it so enjoyable.

    Absolutely brilliant experience!!!
    Will definitely be returning myself next time am in the area. My partner and I loved it! It’s impresive just how much they teach you within the hour. And how much fun it is! Have never been much of a sporty guy or a decent throw myself, but by the end of the session all of us were sticking the targets! Thanks to the gents expert guidance getting that muscle memory working! Ray and Nathan were super patient, attentive and personable. Would recommend to anyone. 10/10

    Thanks so much guys!!

    Knife & Axe throwing
    Had a thoroughly enjoyable session throwing axes and knives. Ray and his team were fantastic at offering support and guidance to throw better. I didn’t find it easy, compared to the rest of the group, but I loved trying and was thrilled when I did hit the target. Definitely something I will try to do again, bringing the family next time. Thank you.

    Knife and Axe throwing
    A fantastic evening organised by Back to Wilderness for our group of 20. Clear and concise safety instructions were given in a very professional manner. Plenty of opportunity for all to have a go with each piece of equipment and all were given individual help from Ray & Matt to hit the target. It was a fun and interesting evening that all participants gained from. Great value for money!!!

  7. David

    Cutting edge entertainment
    Had this as a birthday present and was terrific start to finish. Ray and Mike are great to work with and found the whole session terrific fun and educational too. Got to try out throwing axes and knives and properly learn about the techniques to do it properly.
    Top stuff, would happily do it again.
