We offer award-winning learning sessions tailored to pupils of any age, whether you are looking for an on-site visit, a virtual session or for us to come to you. Exciting hands-on demonstrations and engaging sessions will encourage learning about WW2, teamwork, codebreaking and much more.


Learning visits

School and other learning group visits are available during term time, providing opportunities for students to engage with Bletchley Park’s story, its wider relevance to contemporary history and our own lives today.

A school visit includes:

  • An interactive workshop session of your choice, in which students will use practical problem solving and team working skills as they begin to understand the scale of the task faced by Bletchley Park’s codebreakers during World War Two
  • A guided tour around the outside of the buildings, providing opportunity for students to delve deeper into the story of Bletchley Park and the process of sending, intercepting and decrypting coded messages
  • Self-guided time which allows groups to explore the Mansion, museums, Huts (and of course the shop) at their own pace
  • A 30-minute slot in a lunch room

A visit usually lasts for 4 hours. You will be allocated an arrival and departure time. Please explore the pages below to find out more about school visits to Bletchley Park.

We are now taking bookings for the 2021/22 academic year and beyond.

Learning visits

Bletchley Park’s Outreach Programme brings a unique part of our learning experience to you. Most of our Outreach Sessions include an Enigma demonstration, but these can also take place as standalone activities or drop-in events taking from around 10 minutes up to around half an hour depending on the interest levels of the participants.

Our Enigma demonstrations involve a real, working Enigma machine as used by the German Army to encrypt and decrypt a variety of messages during World War 2. Our Outreach Officers are knowledgeable about Enigma machines and how they were used, and will be able to answer a broad range of questions about them tailored for audiences with all levels of experience and prior understanding.

We will consider any location for an outreach visit, but travel time will be taken into account when calculating the cost of a visit and all travel and related expenses will be charged additionally to this. Outreach visits are primarily aimed at schools and other educational organisations, but we have also delivered visits to libraries, seaside resorts, independent cinemas and commercial organisations.
