Home of the Codebreakers

Description

Bletchley Park, once the top-secret home of the World War Two Allied codebreaking, is now a vibrant heritage attraction, open to visitors daily. Perhaps most well known for the breaking of the Enigma cipher, thought to be unbreakable, it is a site of exceptional historical importance and innovation. It played a major role in World War Two, decrypting secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the conflict. We welcome schools, universities and other groups who can choose to take part in our popular and award-winning STEM-based learning programme.

The D-Day workshop was excellent and the pupils learnt a lot from what they were able to explore. Unfortunately, the current set up didn't allow our pupils to visit as many of the exhibitions as we would have liked. (June 2021 - Primary School)




Very well organised and flexible, especially considering the current COVID-19 situation. (January 2021 - Primary School)




(November 2020 - Secondary School)




Excellent (March 2020 - Secondary School)




(March 2020)




Bletchley Park delivered exactly what we hoped - An immersion into World War Britain, an understanding of the complexity of the codoes/ciphers used and operations undertaken as a result, the engineering required to construct a machine that was capable of managing those numbers/permutations/combinations (we're talking in the trillions) and what is essential the birth of the CPU/ALU. From the workshops, to the tour, to the D-Day experience and our self-guided adventures, we got to touch, "taste" and feel what it was like to live breath Bletchley Park as the 9000 or so did and the height of its operation. (February 2020 - Secondary School)




The educational day was really good. Slightly too rigid and not enough self-guided time alloted though. (January 2020 - Secondary School)




Very organised and accomodating (January 2020 - Secondary School)

Great site, great team - but occasionally feels a little like being 'processed' in a factory!... (July 2019 - Secondary School)




(June 2019 - Secondary School)




It was an excellent site to visit, full of information and the staff were great with the class. (June 2019 - Primary School)




Really enjoyable day out for all - pupils loved learning about the code breaking during WW2. (April 2019 - Primary School)




The trip was an outstanding success. The children had an amazing time and the staff there were absolutely fantastic. They kitted the children out with free audio-guides and the self-guided nature meant the students were able to enjoy all aspects of the site. Will definitely be going again! (March 2019 - Secondary School)




Very inspiring and accommodating (February 2019 - Secondary School)




(January 2019 - Secondary School)




(December 2018 - Secondary School)




(November 2018 - Primary School)




An informative and interesting visit, The workshop delivered what was expected and gave the students an opportunity to find out more about codes and ciphers. (October 2018 - Secondary School)




(October 2018 - Secondary School)




Good trip but lots too see in a short time (September 2018 - Secondary School)
