About the event
Join our historic venture as we head to Bletchley Park, the home of the most brilliant minds of the Allied forces during the Second World War. Set in the grounds of an atmospheric Victorian estate are the once top-secret and now iconic WW2 Codebreaking Huts and Blocks. You will have access to all of Bletchley Park’s exhibitions.
There are museums and exhibitions set in the lovingly restored site which will give an overview of the lives of Alan Turing and has a team of specialists. There is also a hut dedicated to the tireless Royal Women’s Naval Service who worked on the incredible codebreaking Bombe machines which cracked the enigma code. It is commonly believed that the efforts of all those at Bletchley Park shortened the war significantly.
There is also Hut 4 which houses a beautiful café with traditional 1940’s furniture keeping up the theme of the day.
You can explore at your own pace with an audio guide which will provide lots of interesting information or if you would rather there are volunteer guides who will show you the sights of this magnificent heritage site.
Price: £20 (includes entry tickets and guided outside walking tour) plus PayPal fee if you are signing up through the meetup.
Train tickets are not included, but if we buy them together at Euston station, we should get the groupsave discount. The price is approx. £9.90
MEETING POINT AND TIME
Our host will be waiting for you at 9:15 a.m. at the Euston Railway station at the information point - in the middle of the hall.
We will make our way to platform at 9.37am If you are late I'm afraid we will not be able to wait and you will miss the trip. We will aim to take a 9.47am train that arrives at Bletchley station at 10:40.
Let`s have lunch together! There are a variety of food options at Bletchley Park, including vegan and GF options.
Hut 4, formerly a WW2 Naval Intelligence Codebreaking Hut, now houses the café. There is a range of delicious hot and cold food to choose from including freshly cooked meals made on-site with locally sourced ingredients.
Please note that unless the trip is cancelled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance. However, you may be able to sell your place to your friends or other group members.
