We collect and secure the future of the government record, from Shakespeare’s will to tweets from Downing Street, to preserve it for generations to come.

Our family-friendly offer

The Time Travel Club is a children's (5-7s and 8-11s) workshop series hosted by The National Archives. We run workshops on Saturdays and during half-term to introduce children to history in a fun and interactive way. Time Travellers will be given a passport and can collect stamps at each event they take part in.

We also run activity sessions for Tots (2-4 years) and Tinies (0-2 years), as well as free drop-in Craft Club sessions

The Time Travel Club is kindly supported by the Friends of The National Archives.
