Spook Spies: Alverstoke Adventures! (Event from 2019)

  • Post category:Past Events


Crescent Gardens, Crescent Road, Gosport , Hampshire, PO12 2BB

Fun for children on this FREE trail especially devised for HODs by Spook Spies.
Three great activities, all based within the Alverstoke area. Do one or all three!
Find clues, solve codes, beat the troll, do a bit of grave hunting/grave rubbing.

Collect your trail sheet from Spook Spies in Crescent Gardens and discover a fun way for children to learn about the history of the place and its resident gardener, Henry Cooper.

Then, if you wish to go on to two other locations, you’ll also find out about Jacky Spencer Bridge and learn about a local hero buried in St Mary’s graveyard.

Parents – the kids will be entertained for hours.
Kids – have fun, get exercise and learn a bit of history (without knowing it!).

Not local to the area? Enjoy discovering this beautiful part of the south coast!
Local? You will discover things you didn’t know existed!

Suitable for ages 5-12 years.
Children will need to be supervised by an adult at all times.

Allow 120 mins.


Please note that this is an Event from 2019


No Booking Needed – Just turn up and enjoy


The park is quite level, with good pathways and mown grass, so very suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. There is some parking by the gate and on-road parking around the area, but it can be limited. The Anglesey Hotel, just opposite, offers a range of refreshments and bar snacks and has toilets which can be used by customers. Or pack a picnic to enjoy on your trail.




If you enjoy this free event, why not try the ‘Spooks Bay’ trail another time. It can be purchased online from Spook Spies or by visiting our Tourist Info Centre.
