Victorian activities at Fort Nelson during half-term

Have your say

CHILDREN will have the chance to learn about the Victorians during half-term.

The Royal Armouries Fort Nelson in Fareham is holding a number of events to give youngsters the chance to see what it was like in the 19th century.

As well as Victorian characters telling stories about Fort Nelson, the attraction on Portsdown Hill Road will have games and crafts.

Throughout the week, children can play traditional Victorian games and make different crafts.

It is £2 and on between 10.30am and 3.30pm from February 15 until February 19.

And there is the chance to see a school room and write on slates with chalk and learn about the reign of Queen Victoria. The events, for children aged three to 12, also include an activity trail through the fort.

The school sessions, including the trail, are £3.50 and are at 11am, midday, 2pm and 3pm.

Tickets can be purchased in advanced or on the day.
