Throughout half term, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is offering free entry for kids - with opportunities to take part in fun fitness challenges based on the regimes of Royal Navy crews through 200 years of naval history.
Between 26th May and 3rd June, visitors of all ages will be able to relive exercises that kept naval recruits in great shape. Join actors for a Victorian sailors' daily fitness routine aboard HMS Warrior 1860, with medical checks from the ship's surgeon; follow a 'footie trail' at the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower and learn about football's role in Navy fitness; and take part in exercise challenges and even 'dance and singalong' sea shanties.
If those aren't enough of a physical challenge, 'Action Stations' offers activities including climbing walls, reaction tests and simulators that provide a glimpse into the modern naval experience. There will also be a roller skating rink on the site for added thrills.
There are also craft activities, a 'curator's curiosity corner', character trails through the dockyard, opportunities to view special items from the museum collections for a limited time and a one-off screening of 'The Incredibles' on Wednesday 30th May.
Kids go free between 26th May and 3rd June with any full price adult or concession 11 attraction annual pass, which costs from £32 per adult. Child tickets can be exchanged during the same period for annual passes. Book online at www.historicdockyard.co.uk.
