Ever wondered how soldiers kept in touch during war time? Join us in writing secret coded messages, fake an old document and learn about the creative ways that messages were sent from the frontline.

In the First World War it wasn’t a good idea to peek over the top of the trench to spy on the enemy! Instead soldiers would use periscopes to keep a watch over No Man’s Land. Make your own periscope before testing it out in our replica First World War trench.

Our replica First World War trench will be open today.
