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.

 

MEET         at the Old Silhillians Car Park at 8 45 am for a 9 am start, leaving Bletchley Park at 4 pm, aiming to return

                  to the Old Sills by 5 30 pm, traffic permitting.

 

ENJOY       the Visitor Centre where there is a multimedia interactive introductory exhibition. Tea and coffee will be

                   available on arrival. The Visitor Centre and Hut 4 both provide lunch, which will be at your own

                   discretion.

                 

  COST       will be £35.00 to include the coach travel, gratuities and entrance fee. You will be issued with an Annual

                  Season Ticket which allows entry to Bletchley Park for up to a year.

                  You can pre-order an official guide book at the reduced price of £4.50 (see application form).
