Great day out
18 June 2019
Take a trip to the fascinating Bletchley Park for an insight into the once top-secret home of the World War Two Codebreakers with a refreshing afternoon tea for two included. See where some of the smartest minds around like Alan Turing, Gordon Welchman and Bill Tutte helped turn the tide of war and discover the extraordinary achievements of the men and women who worked at Bletchley Park.
A place of exceptional historical importance, Bletchley Park is also a birthplace of modern information technology and has helped shape life as we know it today. Highlights of a visit include the restored codebreaking huts, with their WW2 interiors faithfully recreated and hands-on displays in the blocks where the masterminds from the Government Code & Cypher School (GC&CS) cracked enemy codes. Explore the beautiful grounds and historic buildings with an interactive multimedia guide and enjoy the atmospheric soundscapes, galleries and exhibitions.
Your pre-booked afternoon tea will be served in the Mansion Tea Room, with light finger sandwiches, dainty
cakes and cream scones along with your choice of tea or coffee for some traditional British refreshment.
On arrival at Bletchley Park you’ll begin in the Visitor Centre, handing over your tickets at Admissions and then on to the introductory exhibition before heading out to explore the park at your leisure.
There are a number of huts open to the public as well as the Mansion, the Museum in Block B with examples of Enigma machines, a Lorenz machine and a rebuild of the Bombe machine, a 1 hour guided tour and on-site exhibitions are all included as part of your experience.
Between 12.00 and 15.30 you can enjoy an afternoon tea in the Mansion Tea Room, served with your choice of tea or coffee.

Great day out
I didn't know what to expect - a visit to Bletchley Park, with afternoon tea - but it exceeded expectations. Good weather helped, as there's lots to see outdoors, but the exhibits in the mansion and the huts are very well presented. We opted for an audio tour outside, which gave flexibility. The catering facilities are excellent, with the tea at the end really making the day.
Bought as a birthday present by my daughter. Afternoon tea at Bletchley Park. The whole experience was one to remember. Afternoon tea in the mansion was a lovely way to start. Bletchley Park was absolutely fascinating. Too much to pack into an afternoon, so will be returning soon to have another day out as the ticket includes free entrance on subsequent visits.
Very interesting and informative day and good afternoon tea.
Thoroughly enjoyed our day at Bletchley Park - the lovely warm sunny day was a bonus and meant we could sit by the lake when we flagged a little. Exhibits and explanations were well displayed and we admired the excellent woodwork on the displays. We liked the interactive parts, but were probably not quite up to the standard needed for employment there in the war! Afternoon tea was goo, too, and we were grateful for the box provided for leftovers.
