Once Britain’s best kept secret, this major visitor attraction was also the filming location for The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Preserved for the nation by the Bletchley Park Trust, Bletchley Park was home to the Government Code and Cypher School (the predecessor to GCHQ), who studied and devised methods to enable Allied forces to decipher codes from the German and Japanese forces.
Bletchley Park also heralded the birth of the information age and is currently home to the world’s first electronic computer, Colossus.
Whilst some of Bletchley Park remains derelict, when visiting, you will be able to view the Enigma machine as well as the story of the people who broke the code, a timeline of Bletchley Park and how it influenced WWII events, a gallery dedicated to the life and works of Alan Turing and much, much more.
The Trust continues to develop the site so there is always something new to see.
