Visitors experience a nostalgic sense of place and history, enjoying a landscape returned to rural tranquillity, along with highly atmospheric soundscapes, interactive activities, exhibits and experiences. We welcome you to Bletchley Park to see it for yourself and encourage you to make it a part of your itinerary for a great day out and unique cultural experience. « less

This needs more publicity - a great day out and kids really enjoyed. Was very pleasantly surprised. My kids are both into Maths so this was great for them and my son is doing GCSE history so ticked all the boxes.

It's not super cheap but the family pass lasts for a year and it's a great day out with lovely green areas, good cafés and the information about the activities there is really well presented with some interactive activities to help explain the whole complicated code breaking systems. A really well done museum.

I visited on my own for a couple of hours. The exhibits were fantastic and really brought home what the place was there to do. I look forward to making more of the annual membership.

No one should give this establishment less than 5 stars or complain about the entrance price as we should all be thankful to the thousands of people who worked here deciphering Nazi codes which in turn helped us win the war! I can't believe that they had to apply for lottery funding to pay for the renovations and so recently... More

Lovely setting and now several of the ancient code breaking huts have been restored, but the place is getting too formal and commercialised. Even worse since it got funding the all important world's first true computer "Colossus" is sadly now no longer part of the tour and you have to pay separately, it has even been fenced off to keep...

This is a new museum and tells the story of station X and the people who worked there. It is incredible to think that with all the thousands who toiled threr no one ever gave away it's secret. Very well worth a visit.

Interesting, well presented and interpreted. Frustrating it didn't including the National Museum of Computing in the price.
