My Grandad: The Spy

Commissioned by The National Archives.

My Grandad: The Spy is our latest adventure for young families, made in response to The National Archives’ exhibition Protect and Survive: Britain’s Cold War Revealed.

Tanya’s certain that her grandad was a spy, but here at The National Archives she can’t find out the truth on her own. She needs your help.

Find clues, break codes and keep undercover on a top secret mission. Join Tanya on her adventure to discover the facts about her grandad’s hidden history, and find out if you have what it takes to be a spy.

When you need to find out about the past, where better to start than The National Archives?

My Grandad: The Spy runs across the May bank holiday, May half term, and every Saturday in June 2019 – a full list of dates and times is available here.

The National Archives, Bessant Drive, Richmond, TW9 4DU
