Valentine’s Axe throwing – the perfect alternative date

The Black Axe Throwing Co. brings axe throwing to the Edinburgh in valentines pop-up.

Black Axe Throwing Co. is bringing axe throwing to Edinburgh for the first time this Valentine’s Day.

Axe throwing is growing in popularity across the country and around the world, and this pop-up event is the ideal alternative to romantic restaurants for Valentine’s Day this year.

This urban sport works in a similar format to tenpin bowling or archery, with wooden targets at the end of lanes which and small hatchet style axes thrown at them. It is a test of skill, not strength, which means everybody and anybody can master it and there also be instructors on hand with advice and throwing tips for everyone.

The event will team up with Edinburgh Festival and The Pitt Market favourites Pizza Geeks to provide a selection of specially prepared pizzas for guests and there will also be a range of cocktails available from Pickering’s Gin, making for a great night for couples and singletons alike.

Tiered ticket packages for the public will include an axe throwing session, specially prepared pizza and a range of delicious cocktails. Prices start at £20 per person and the event runs from 14th February to 18th February. There will be a number of sessions throughout each day.

The Biscuit Factory, 4-6 Anderson Place, Edinburgh, EH6 5NP (

I recently posted some photos of when my partner did this. Our event was held outside and you can see from the photos how cold it was. I’m glad he didn’t suggest it for Valentine’s Day though!
