Bletchley Park - 17th October
Day Trips | Farnham, Alton, Four Marks Wednesday 17 October £45 (over 60s), £47 (adults)
Bletchley Park was once Britain's best kept secret. On this trip, we explore the award-winning Bletchley Park site that was home to 9000 employees working on code-breaking and intelligence work. We see codebreaking huts and blocks to experience why Bletchley Park was so important to the British and allied war effort.
Bletchley Park was the central site for Britain's codebreakers during World War Two, providing the allies with vital information for their war effort. It was run by the Government Code and Cypher School and deciphered many of the secret communications made by the German war machine, particularly the Enigma and Lorenz ciphers. Bletchley Park explains the history and the importance of this work and tells the story of those that contributed, not least the code breakers such as Alan Turing who was the subject of the film The Imitation Game.
See the new Visitor Centre, the code breaking huts, the rebuilt ‘Bombe’ (this is the electro-mechanical device used to mechanise the process of breaking Enigma), the Alan Turing gallery, and of course, the Enigma machines.
Depart from 9 am, arrive home around 6 pm.
