Spy Academy

Junior spooks can enrol in our spy academy and train in some of the covert tactics and strategies used by Special Operations Executive agents in the Second World War. Trainees will learn the art of disguise, how to de-activate booby traps and follow clues to decipher a secret message.

They’ll also discover how the Fort was designed to be hidden, camouflaged and difficult to spy on.

Sessions at 11am, 12noon, 2pm, 3.30pm / £3.50 per child / suitable for ages 5 -12 / participants must be supervised at all times

Tickets are available in advance from the Fort Nelson Visitor Centre or via telephone: 01329 233 734
