Bletchley Park

  • Destination: UK - England

Located in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, this former secret intelligence headquarters for the British military during World War II is now a museum. It was here at this site that allied forces penetrated the secret communications of the Axis Powers including the German Enigma and Lorenz codes.

The entire estate includes a mansion, wooden huts, and brick-built blocks which were all used for specific intelligence gathering purposes. Block B houses the main collection of code-breaking artefacts and the Enigma machine collection. As well as many exhibits relating to this effort, you can find also The National Museum of Computing on its grounds.
