Join our special creepy crawly Deathwatch Beetle puppet on the Lower Gun Deck of HMS Victory and learn all about the problems they cause and the work being done to try and stop them.
Then make your own beetle buddy to take home. This tour is aimed at children aged 4-12 but is suitable for other ages.
