It was alright. I was there with my class since it was part of our study trip to London. I would definitely not come here by myself. It's only because we had to. However, it was quite interesting to learn more about all these historical things that we had read so much about and actually see them for the first... More

Having heard lots about Bletchley Park from my Grandad and general TV programmes I expected that I would be wowed by this trip finding out lots of great stuff about what went on in this secret place. Unfortunately though there is somewhat of a disconnect between visitors and the information presented, it's quite stale and very in depth (they use... More

Very interesting get to see the Bomb working and the Enigma machine, lots of interactive activities about code breaking. History you can touch. It was a nice day and the grounds were lovely. Our standard price ticket allowed us return visits for a year, so basically was an annual pass.

This was a second visit to Bletchley Park and with my annual ticket I will return again. There is so much to see that after 2 visits I still haven't seen it all. Staff and volunteers are on hand to answer questions and direct if needed, but generally let you explore independently. We went on the volunteer led tour, this... More

We had done our homework and read up quite a lot on BP, the movie is entertaining but fiction, which they play up at the mansion. Even if you aren't techy, this place is interesting and enlightening for its role played and contribution in bringing the end of WWII. The first main building/entrance where you pick up an audio tour... More

a nerdy science park, but still entertaining to 10+ age group. Could use a bit more signposting, because most of the exhibits were behind closed doors.

Fab. Met at gate & directed to parking & reception. Very informative & helpful guides throughout venue. Beautiful grounds, hidden recordings as you walk round to help with getting the 'feel' of life during war, exhibitions in each location so you can get an understanding of how it all worked- so informative but *best* bit was the 'Pigeons at War'-...

We’d not been here before so didn’t know what to expect but there’s plenty to see and take in if you spend the time reading the exhibit captions etc. Some of the rooms were a little dark and this obviously adds to the atmosphere but I did think that the exhibits themselves, their labels and the wall panels explaining things...

Yesterday en route to Norwich from Reading we detoured slightly through Milton Keynes to visit Bletchley Park. This was the base for Britain's WW 2 deciphering activity of the German Enigma codes. I have read extensively about this hugely complex and fascinating activity which gave birth to the embryonic computer science of today. The famous mathematician, Alan Turing was instrumental...

There is a wonderful story to tell about Bletchley Park, but sadly the revamped site fails to get anywhere near doing it justice. In addition the experience is spoilt by poor directions and careless staff. We entered on a quiet day with no queue but no one thought to shortcut the taped off lines zig zagging their way to the...
