Visit Bletchley Park and soak up its unique atmosphere. Learn about the fascinating secret history of Bletchley Park, its codebreakers, 1940's life and times and its legacy of technology and innovation.
The work of the now famous Bletchley Park codebreaking pioneers, such as Alan Turing and Dilly Knox affected the fate of nations during WWII and shortened it by at least two years. Since then, countless millions have been affected by what happened on this site in complete secrecy.
By March 1946 they were all gone - removing every scrap of their codebreaking activities as they left. Winston Churchill said of those at Bletchley that they were "the geese that laid the golden eggs...but never cackled"
This secrecy lasted until the 1970's and so strong was their code that many still refuse to reveal exactly what happened. More recently BP has been the subject of many documentaries and books including the Robert Harris novel "Enigma" which was turned into a major film worldwide.
