Spies and Soldiers Family Events


Enter the daring realm of World War II spies and soldiers this May half-term!

Test your mettle as a secret agent by heading off across the Beaulieu grounds on your own SOE training mission this May half-term.

The Special Operations Executive are running a training exercise before sending their trainee agents into enemy-occupied France - and they've recruited you to join them!

Track down hidden car parts, find all the Citroen 2CV parts and note down the cryptic symbol on each one. Then head back to the mission briefing room to match them back to the secret blueprints.
Make a code breaking gadget…Can you crack the code? Create your own gadget and decipher the cryptic symbols to find out!

Throughout the week, dress up as a soldier, see a selection of wartime vehicles being driven around the attraction and talk to Lord Montagu’s falconer about the role of falconry in World War II.

Plus, solve a puzzle to win prizes! Put your code cracking skills to the test in the Brabazon Restaurant to solve a fiendish puzzle and be entered into a prize draw. Each day’s winner will receive a fun spy or soldier pack.

Then head to the Secret Army Exhibition to discover the true story of Beaulieu’s role as a wartime finishing school for special agents.

Plus even more…
Join us for more special activities on Sunday 27th May & Saturday 2nd June.

All May half-term activities are included in general admission tickets, which include entry to the whole of the attraction!
