Fanatic or not this place takes you back to the backstage of WWII... Espionage and code breaking, what a trill. It took us a whole day to go through all the grounds. I'm not a fan of any war history, but love architecture, science and social history, and Bletchley park offers this a more. A place to go if you... More

Went for the morning and stayed until chucking out time at 4 My second visit and my husbands 4th. Loads to do and see. Take a free guided tour that you get tickets for at the mansion. They have recently spent around £8m here on a new visitor centre and other restoration and it shows. And the best bit? Your... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my day, and could have spent longer or even another day, but time got in the way. Booked for a tour which was interesting and put things in perspective, I didn't buy the guide which may have helped as I got lost a few times, but a lovely place with lots to see. I think I benefited... More

I have nothing but praise for this attraction in general, but here are two suggestions: 1. PLEASE work with the National Museum of Computing towards having the Colossus rebuild as an integral part of the site, not situated separately as at present. 2. I think it would be helpful if new visitors were offered an introductionary presentation of say 15... More

I thought I knew the story of the codebreakers during WW2 and thought I knew what to expect from a visit. Turns out I was wrong! This place is huge. I had no idea that at the height of the war 9,000 people worked here, or that the number of combinations for single letters was so staggeringly high. The huts... More

Had such a good time a couple of years ago - went back again. Great if you are interested in the history of the spy wars during WW2. Set-up by Winston Churchill, more than 1000 people worked here during WWII to decode enemy messages. Everything has been re-created and rooms have light and voice displays

I came to Bletchley park not knowing a thing about this place, other than the name sounds vaguely familiar. The grounds are very spread out, and the numerous buildings on site have tons of interactive and static displays that help enhance your learning of what the code breakers did here during WWII. The main area of the park was the... More

There's a lot to see at Bletchley Park, possibly too much for a single visit. There are exhibits dedicated to the cracking of the Enigma code, to the life of Alan Turing (including his teddy bear), to other agents during the war, to the people who worked at the park, to the current feature film. Then there are the huts... More

We were bamboozled initially with the volume of information at the visitor centre, as far as we could, see its use the multi media tour or wait for a tour guide. The multi media guide, included in the entrance fee, worked really well for us. Its important to keep moving around as there's so much to see its easy to... More

What a great place and so sad that people that worked there did not get recognised And how could a great man that helped to save many life's get persecuted So sad
