Join in the daily interactive family activity Sea Legs and travel back to D-Day in 1944 with Family Mission: D-Day Edition.
It’s 1942 and HMS Belfast is ready to set sail. The only thing that has been misplaced is where the ship is supposed to be going. Help plot the course for the upcoming mission and make sure everything is shipshape and ready to go.
Hop on the balance board to test how steady you’ll be on choppy seas. Figure out just how to feed 950 men on board with limited rations and even find out what kind of supplies you’ll need along the way.
Get to grips with the science and skills needed to survive on HMS Belfast, solve nautical puzzles and discover for yourself what life was like for the ship’s company during the Second World War.
Sea Legs has been developed with TV Presenter Ben Shires, host of Officially Amazing and Match of the Day: Kick About.
Also, take part in We Were There: Family Day on Saturday 31 May. From Bridge to Bakery, eyewitnesses and veterans will be sharing their memories of life at sea, and what it was like to grow up during the Second World War.
