Don’t miss your last chance to find your inner inventor at Spirit of Invention, a fun, free design exhibition at The National Archives closing on Sunday 29 October 2023.

Step into a world of creativity from past to present – see original Victorian designs that capture the glorious imagination of Victorian Britain alongside designs from modern makers. Try on a Victorian ventilating top hat, make a call on an early telephone and be inspired to become an inventor yourself.

Nearest tube: Kew Gardens. Car parking available.  The exhibition is open Tuesday-Sunday and Monday 29 May. Please check opening times before visiting.
