Letters are like time machines – you seal them up and when you open them again, they can transport you back to the time they were written. A mysterious letter, penned during World War 1, has been found – but lots of it has been censored. Can you unlock the past and solve the mystery of what messages the great and good of Battersea might have for us?

Keep your eyes and ears open in this interactive trail around Battersea Arts Centre to experience the rich history that this building holds, dating back to when it was used as Battersea Town Hall. Along the way you will solve puzzles, see newly created artworks and learn about four former residents of Battersea and how they played a part in our history.

For KS2 groups or equivalent. Book one ticket for your whole group (max. 33 people)
