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.
