Visit to Bletchley Park

Wednesday18 March 2020


Dear Member,

We invite you to join us for a visit to Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes, once the top-secret home of the World War Two Codebreakers. It is now a vibrant heritage site, with historic buildings set in beautiful grounds. You will step back in time to experience the extraordinary achievements of the men and women who worked there, including Alan Turing. A private, one hour, guided outdoor walking tour will set the scene, telling the story of Bletchley Park and its major role in producing secret intelligence which influenced the outcome of the war.


Highlights of the day will include the opportunity to visit the restored code-breaking huts, where you will see a working model of a Bombe Machine which broke the Enigma Code. A permanent exhibition in the newly restored Teleprinter Building marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings via a dramatic audio-visual experience.


If you would like to join us for this visit please complete the form below as soon as possible.
