Join Elizabeth I and her spymasters at Hampton Court Palace this February half term

Queen Elizabeth I's spymasters are back at Hampton Court Palace with more clues to solve, evidence to uncover and treasonous conspiracies to stop.

There is a new threat to the Queen’s throne from her closest courtiers and relatives. Elizabeth has chosen not to marry and hasn’t named an heir, but her courtiers think they may have a solution.

Become a spy, meet the suspects in her court, decipher mysterious codes and listen in on conversations to see what secret information you can discover.
