Bletchley Park is now open

What you need to know at a glance

Bletchley Park is now open! We are delighted to welcome you to this remarkable place and share the incredible stories of Britain’s World War Two Codebreakers.

To ensure your safety and that of our team members, we will be making some changes to the way you visit and some areas of the site will look a little different.

Everyone will need to pre-book a timed entry slot online. This will help us maintain social distancing and manage flow, enabling you to enjoy exploring our historic buildings and beautiful, spacious grounds safely and securely.

On these pages you can find our essential information before you visit, frequently asked questions, and useful downloads.

Opening hours

  • Our new summer opening times are 09.00 – 18.00 daily. You must pre-book an available entry slot.
  • Your entry time will not limit your time on site; it just allows us to stagger entry so we can manage flow and reduce queuing. The last entry slot will be 15.30, giving you plenty of time to still explore the site.
  • Please visit our ticket bookings page to pre-book your timed entry slot.



  • To help us maintain social distancing, we are limiting numbers on site each day, so you must pre-book a timed entry slot online. This includes all Friends and Annual Season Pass holders.


Social distancing

  • Please follow government guidelines on cleanliness, hygiene and social distancing. Wearing of face masks is not mandatory for you onsite, but please feel free to wear one if you would like.

  • Our free Multimedia guides  will still be available to pick up from the Block C Visitor Centre. Please bring your own earphones. Take-home earbuds will be available for those who need them.

The Hut 1 Kiosk will be offering ice cream and other snacks along with cold beverages. We will also have a new pop-up takeaway café outside Block B. Our Block C Coffee Shop will be closed temporarily.
