Bletchley Park

Once Britain’s Best Kept Secret, today Bletchley Park is a heritage site and vibrant tourist attraction. Open daily, visitors can explore some of the iconic WW2 Codebreaking Huts and Blocks and marvel at the astonishing achievements of the Codebreakers whose work is said to have helped shorten the war by two years. Public interest in Bletchley Park has grown enormously over the past few years and the number of visitors to Bletchley Park in 2014 was 195,000.

Bletchley Park is run by the Bletchley Park Trust, a charity formed in 1992 to preserve the site for the nation. Today, the Trust is working towards transforming Bletchley Park into the world-class heritage and education site it deserves to be. Work has been completed to create a new Visitor Centre within Block C where Hollerith punch-card machines carried out rapid analysis of encrypted message systems to assist the Codebreakers. In parallel the iconic Codebreaking Huts 3 and 6 have been restored and opened up for visitors and the landscape has been returned to its 1940’s appearance. Breathtaking new exhibitions have been developed to significantly enhance the visitor experience at Bletchley Park.

The Bletchley Park Trust was awarded Business of the Year 2014 at the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards.
