An Active Livery Investing in Young People

Visit to Bletchley Park

Home of WWII codebreakers - the real story of Bletchley Park is as dramatic as any film.

Once convinced of its importance, Churchill ordered that he was to receive a report daily from Bletchley Park. By the end of the Second World War there were 10,000 people working there in autonomous silos. The facility undoubtedly changed the course of the War.

The successes of Bletchley have been recently documented on TV and in the film The Imitation Game. The real story of Bletchley Park actually needs no dramatisation. The story that we will be told by our guides will be as dramatic as any film. As well as seeing the well-known exhibits of the Enigma Machines including the rare Awehr G312, we will also be told many tales of spies and strategic deception.  We will also see the Colossus rebuild (the world’s first semi-programmable electronic computer) and the Tunny Galleries.

Lunch is included and guests are welcome.
