Fans of the books, which require you to search for Wally in different scenes, will be able to embark on a hunt for Wally in Chatham between Friday, October 9 until Sunday, November 1.

The Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search is being organised by Walker Books and organisation Kids in Museums to celebrate the release of new book Where’s Wally? Spooky Spotlight Search.

The mini Wally stands are hidden around the 400-year-old historic site and amongst the Dockyard's collections. Young visitors who can spell out the spooky phrase with the letters hidden alongside Wally will receive a special prize for completing the search.

Alison Bowyer, Executive Director of Kids in Museums, said: “The last few months have been a challenging time for the heritage sector so we are pleased to support even more museums to hold a fun and safe activity this October. We hope to encourage families back into heritage sites and help them enjoy all the rich experiences on offer.”

Due to the current COVID-19 safety measures, all visits to The Historic Dockyard Chatham must book their outing in advance and families are advised to make their half term plans in advance to avoid disappointment.
