Fancy throwing axes and eating Nordic bites?
If the answer is yes, The Hilt is the place for you.
Here you will throw like a Viking and eat like a king.
Their mission is to combine the thrill of axe throwing with the savoriness of culinary creativity.
A visit to The Hilt is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in a unique York experience.
Since the Vikings first settled in York in 855, their culture and pastimes remain woven into the city’s rich heritage. There’s no doubt, Vikings have a sordid history, and while some people may regard them as rebels or outlaws, The Hilt believe there’s much more to the Viking story.
The Hilt are proud to be the first indoor axe throwing venue in York, offering 10 lanes for friends and family to come together for an experience unlike any other. With the help of their amazing axe throwing coaches, you’ll be throwing like a Viking within minutes!
Whether you’re a first time thrower or professional axe juggler, the rules are simple and the skill is easy to learn.
Take on your opponent by scoring as many points as you can through the accuracy of your throwing, basically hit the target!
When you’re not hitting their split-wood targets, you can enjoy delicious Nordic bites and creative mocktails. (There are no alcoholic drinks being served at this time but their licensing is due to allow for this soon).
The founders of The Hilt are Alex and Josh and they believe fearlessness is fun, and nothing is more fun (or honestly satisfying) than hurling an axe through the air and sinking it into a wooden target less than 4 meters away. They want to thrill and excite you, but most of all, they want to bring people together to celebrate discovery, belonging and adventure!
These guys feel incredibly fortunate to call York home. Whether you’re a local or just raiding, this city has a way of captivating everyone.
The Hilt is about pushing boundaries, seeking adventure and being together. Sharpen your axes. They’re thrilled to share this experience with you.
