Valhalla Axe Throwing

Valhalla Axe Throwing

If you’re getting bored of the traditional darts games and pub fare, there’s an opportunity to give it a twist at Valhalla Axe Throwing. It can’t get cooler than this. If anything, it’ll totally improve your darts game! Unlike BattleAxe, this is an adults only venue, so it’s a little more exclusive, but it doesn’t mean it’s any less fun. If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your inner Scandinavian warrior, this is the place! They’re hoping to reopen on 17th May, so mark it in your diaries! Check out their website to book.
