Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes, home of British World War Two Codebreakers, now a museum and heritage attraction, has been shortlisted in three categories of the 2020 UK Heritage Awards.
The national awards for Best Family Day Out, Most Improved Heritage Development and Must Visit recognise Bletchley Park’s unique visitor experience for all ages, with new exhibitions, events and activities that bring its incredible wartime story to life.
Rebecca Foy, Director of Public Engagement at Bletchley Park said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for these three prestigious awards, which recognise our unique visitor offer for all ages and our new permanent D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion exhibition which was formally opened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge last year. If you’re one of those people who have Bletchley Park on your bucket list, now is the time to come along and be inspired by our story.”
Bletchley Park general admission tickets include an annual season ticket giving visitors unlimited free returns for a year. Online bookings save 5% whilst under 12s go free. Top Secret Mission Packs, plus new family tours and activities throughout the school holidays, as well as new displays, exhibitions, and on-site catering help make Bletchley Park a full fun day out for families.
The winners of these highly prized awards, recognising the places and people who contribute to the world of heritage, will be announced at an awards ceremony at Grocer’s Hall, London on Monday 23 March.
