17 August 2013
The Mansion, Bletchley Park
We are currently busy planning our programme for the year starting in September. In the meantime, we have organised a special visit to Bletchley Park (near Milton Keynes) on Saturday, 17th August. We have a tour booked at 2.15pm but there are now plenty of other things to do there, so you are welcome to arrive any time after midday. This is also open to family and friends and bookings can be made at https://events.bcs.org/book/727/
Once Britain’s Best Kept Secret, today Bletchley Park, Home of the Codebreakers, is a heritage site and vibrant tourist attraction. Visitors can explore and experience the top secret world of iconic WW2 Codebreaking Huts set within the atmospheric Victorian estate nestled in a microcosm of Buckinghamshire countryside. Discover the secret world! Exhibitions available include The Life and Works of Alan Turing, the only reconstructed Bombe machine and the largest display of Enigma machines on public display in the world. Visitors can enjoy a full day at Bletchley Park with a tasty hot and cold menu available in Hut 4 cafe, a playground where children can let off steam and a souvenir gift shop without which no visit is complete.
The cost is as follows:
|Adult non-BCS Members||£12.00|
|12-16 year olds||£5.00|
This is a significant reduction on the usual admittance prices but we need to confirm numbers 14 days in advance. Bookings can be made at https://events.bcs.org/book/727/
