The Perfect Blacksmithing experience! We went as a stag party of 4 and booked the sword-making experience and it was incredible! The team helps make your ideal sword, from real historical swords to swords from tv shows and films! A big shout out to Bob, Joe, Sam, and Theo, the guys were welcoming incredibly friendly, and funny and they even made the beginning safety announcements entertaining! They demonstrated the processes clearly and guided us through the experience, and at the end of the day, you really felt like one of the team. I couldn't fault a single thing about the whole business. Thank you so much for an amazing day and I can't wait to do it again!

5-star experience (I didn't stop grinning all the time I was there), made brilliant by the passionate people who work there. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The biggest thing that makes this a great experience is the interaction, advice, and support you get from people who clearly love what they do. A big shout out to Joe and Helen who were our main trainers/guides/mentors, but also huge thanks to Luke, Aaron, Sam, Theo, and the team.

Really good blacksmith course!

Somehow Chris managed to make it not terrifying and overwhelming despite the high temperatures and red hot metal. And my bottle opener actually works, result!
