Overview

WE ARE OPEN MONDAY TO FRIDAY 10am to 5pm (winter 4pm) (excluding Bank Holidays) Set in 20 acres of partially wooded and landscaped grounds, West Kent Shooting School offers a comprehensive English Sporting layout with over 100 different combination of targets, including a 100ft Raywing High Tower. The range is carefully laid out to provide a totally natural setting for extensive shooting for both novices and experts, all within the beautiful tranquility of rural Kent, close to Royal Tunbridge Wells. Our continued success owes much to our policy of constantly re-investing in our core activity as a Shooting School. By always upgrading our facilities to be the best, we can offer the most comprehensive range of clay pigeon shooting sporting facilities in the South East of England, and since 2006 making us one of the smallest, but proudest CPSA Premier Plus Ground. In 2013 our success continued by being voted “The Shooting Ground of the Year”. Our Corporate and Conference facilities blend the highest standard of professionalism with an informal touch that makes each corporate guest feel like a favoured friend, which has cemented our reputation as one of the top venues in the South East for corporate shooting parties. WE ARE OPEN MONDAY TO FRIDAY 10am to 5pm (winter 4pm) (excluding Bank Holidays)

Well set out shooting ground with a wide variety of clay targets. Good facilities and friendly staff. No traipsing through the mud here! But a bit pricy. Reasonably stocked shop and good food (but limited range) available.
