Firstly, this is great value. For £15 you receive entry for a whole year so can come back as many times as you like. And, there is so much to see that you will need more than a single visit. We first visited in November 2013, and have just paid a return visit. The centre has been updated considerably with... More

I recently had the unexpected opportunity to visit Bletchley Park. What a great tour! I had no idea how sprawling the campus really is, so if you go make sure you have plenty of time to not only take the tour, but wander around. Our guide told us a great story of a couple pensioners who saw a documentary on... More

More than a day out, you'd need two or more to really take it all in, there is so much to see and learn. A wonderful job of restoration where the old huts are concerned, and now equipped to what they most likely looked like during the war. The outstanding ability of breaking code that our enemy thought would be... More

My husband and I visited Bletchley Park last December. We had a tour guide who told us a lot about the BP. Certain renovations were under way and were due to open in the summer of this year - now open. Consequently we decided to use the season ticket facility and visit again. Our second visit was good but could... More

this is a very interesting place to visit with helpful staff to answer any questions. we spent four hours going round and still did not see it all . the cafe/restaurant is good value for money which makes a change from what you would normally find

Second visit here in a year. The history of what was achieved is well told and fascinating. A whole day does not really do it justice but tickets are valid for multiple visits for a whole year.

The bombe machine and how it broke the enigma machine..... Sufficient to say flaws in the encryption methodology, flaws in the message sent with repetition and the bombe machine replicating many enigma machines to replicate the results to throw out the key once checked which wasn't easy. This is explained in the demonstration which occurs at a marked up time... More

Just dont have eye contact with the guides. They talk all through the video presentations, and will talk at you forever if you let them

My wife & I made a visit to BP at the weekend and we both thought that the day was very well spent. The layout of the site is ideal for a day trip as everything was close at hand and a visit even in the rain would be just as enjoyable. The huts were very well presented and the... More

This is a brilliant museum if you are a WWII enthusiast or keen mathematician. Free for children under 12 but I would say not that suitable for under 12s. You could spend a whole day there. This place will be mobbed once The Imitation Game opens! One of the guides operated the Bombe machines too. Wonderful place.
