Bletchley was the centre for codebreaking and military intelligence during WWII. An exhibition commemorates the capture by British forces of the Enigma machine and codebooks 70 years ago. Older children will be fascinated by talk of secret missions and the race to decode complex passwords and secret languages. There’s also a code trail that lets them have a go. The homefront displays and the small cinema showing wartime showreels are always a hit too. Small children will enjoy the display cases of period toys, as well as the playground and open spaces of the 29 acre site. There’s also a giant chess set in the gardens.

Not recommended if your hard of hearing and you cannot use the multimedia guide with headphones You don't get the opportunity to get a general map for the park (not availabie to buy). unless you buy the complete guide for a small A6 size map on the back Plus, it's extra price for the museums entrance hall with the colossus computer. Plenty of empty rooms in the huts and the mansion house is nearly empty too. Don't waste your time, just read about it on the internet !
