Following up from the event to visit the cryptography exhibit at the Science Museum, this is a trip to see the nerve centre of World War 2 intelligence gathering. It’s a fascinating place that was an important centre for the modern computing era as it was a place for code breaking. The site features an unusual mansion, old work office quarters and a grounds featuring all sorts of beautiful trees.

The code breaking efforts that happened at Bletchley had a profound impact on the war and involved all sorts of people to contribute. And if you’re Polish, you’ll find a special memorial to code breakers who fled Poland to help give Bletchley code breakers a boost trying to break the Enigma codes.

But the most amazing thing about the place was the secrecy. Thousands of people worked there but never revealed their work to anyone until decades after the war. Come along and join to see this unique piece of history.
