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 have made some changes to the way you visit and some areas of the site look a little different.
You must pre-book a timed entry slot here. This helps us maintain social distancing and manage flow, enabling you to enjoy exploring our historic buildings and beautiful, spacious grounds safely and securely.
