Timings: 11.00 am until approx. 5.00 pm

 

 


A group visit has been arranged to Bletchely Park in Buckinghamshire, the home of the WW11 team that broke the enigma code (and so much more). Bletchley Park is a place of exceptional historical importance. It remains highly relevant to our lives today and for the future. It is the home of British codebreaking and a birthplace of modern information technology. It played a major role in World War II, producing secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the conflict. The site has undergone extensive restoration and development over the past five years, and even if you have visited before, then there will certainly be something new to see. We hope / expect to arrange a guided tour of the site, but self-guided audio tours are also available.

The visit will conclude with a splendid afternoon tea served in the restored dining of the original 19th Century Bletchley Park Mansion, which lies at the heart of the estate.

Bletchley Park is just 5 minutes walk from Bletchley Station which is served by frequent trains from London Euston, with a journey time of between 35 and 50 minutes. The visit will commence at 11.00 am and finish at c. 5.00 pmm although individual guests will of course be at liberty to leave earlier.

The cost of the visit will be £33.50, to include the entry fee and afternoon tea. If you don’t wish to take afternoon tea, the cost will be £15.50.

 

Because of the high demand for afternoon tea on summer Saturdays, we need to confirm numbers very soon, so please reply early to book your place(s).
