A visit to Bletchley Park involves both indoor and outdoor activities, we would recommend outdoor clothing and footwear to get the most out of your visit.

Your enjoyment and comfort and that of our staff and volunteers, is our highest priority. That’s why we’re limiting the number of people on site and continuing with timed entry slots, including for Friends and existing Annual Season Pass holders. We are also maintaining some one-way routes through buildings, keeping our hand sanitiser stations and asking everyone to respect other people’s space.
Do I need to wear a face covering?
As of Monday 19 July 2021, face coverings (indoors and outdoors) are no longer mandatory. The government ‘expects and recommends people wear face coverings in crowded places’ so do feel free to wear a face covering inside our buildings if you wish. The updated guidance applies to our team members as well.
What about social distancing?
As of Monday 19 July 2021, the government has removed the restrictions on social distancing. However, we ask that everyone continues to respect other people’s space.
What if I am unwell?
Please do not visit if you have symptoms of COVID-19. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are an onset of a new continuous cough or a high temperature (over 38°C) or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia). If you have any of these symptoms you should stay at home and follow the government guidance.
Previously booked tickets can be rescheduled for a later date without difficulty. Please contact our Bookings team by emailing [email protected] or calling 01908 272673.
