11. Bletchley Park Trust reserves the right to refuse entry to Bletchley Park.
12. Bletchley Park is a working site and as such can experience short-notice closures and changes due to activities on site, including closed exhibits. This might result in adjustments to visits, including any scheduled timings. Bletchley Park Trust will endeavour to contact all visitors with as much notice as possible in such situations. We regret any inconvenience.
13. We aim to respond to telephone calls and emails within ten working days.
14. You are able to cancel your booking up to 28 calendar days prior to your visit without penalty. Cancellations should be made in writing to [email protected].
15. If you cancel your visit within 28 calendar days of your booked visit, a 50% payment will be required.
16. In the event of the Bletchley Park site being fully closed (e.g. due to adverse weather conditions), an update will appear on our website and an alternative date will be offered to educational groups.
17. Unless student cancellations are notified to us 28 calendar days prior to your visit, you will be invoiced for the original number of student places booked. Carers and staff are free of charge (up to a ratio of 1:5). Cancellations should be made in writing to [email protected] .
18. Overseas groups must be paid for by BACS transfer in advance or card payment on the day. Your payment method will be confirmed with you when booking your visit.
Food & Drinks
19. To maximise your time in sessions and exploring the site we recommend you bring your own lunch. A space to eat packed lunches will be provided for 30 minutes during your visit. Due to the nature of the site we are unable to provide storage space for lunch crates. Packed lunches must not be eaten in the Block C Cafe or Hut 4 restaurant as these areas are reserved for restaurant / café customers.
20. Part of our mission is to preserve and enhance Bletchley Park, including the historic floors around the site. In order to minimise future damage to all our historic floors, sharp heeled shoes (heels which cover an area smaller than a postage stamp) are not permitted. Heel protectors can be provided but we would appreciate your support and understanding of why we need to protect our beautiful floors and we therefore recommend that comfortable walking shoes are worn during your visit.
Bletchley Park Trust reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time and by submitting the online booking form you agree to abide by the most recent version.
