The Long-Awaited Restoration of Historic Bletchley Park
Bletchley Park is a heritage attraction of world importance. In addition to the restoration of iconic Codebreaking Huts and Blocks, it is now being reinvigorated with fantastic interactive exhibits, new activities and fresh displays. Once complete, Bletchley Park will be much nearer to its aspiration of being a world-class education and heritage centre.
In this first phase of regeneration Block C will be transformed into a vibrant Visitor Centre with an informative and inspirational introductory exhibition presenting the rich history of Bletchley Park. Along with a brand new shop and café, the visitor’s experience of Bletchley Park will be dramatically improved. The centre of the site will be returned to the tranquil countryside setting the Codebreakers cherished, free of modern vehicles and paraphernalia.
The iconic Codebreaking Huts 3 and 6 will be sympathetically restored to their original condition. With light touch interpretation inside, visitors will be able to experience the authentic wartime environment. The Bombe Huts 11 and 11A are also being faithfully restored and presented with exciting new displays, with sounds and visuals to recreate the wartime ambience. The Huts will be ready by mid-2014 for visitors to experience what it would have felt like to be a Codebreaker in World War Two. Further information about the current restoration project.
We’re not finished yet! We will shortly be launching a major campaign to raise the final funds to secure our status as a world-class education and heritage site by 2020. When the Codebreakers, starved of resources, wrote to Winston Churchill asking for help, he wrote "Action this day! Make sure they have all they want on extreme priority and report to me that this has been done".
Please help ensure that Bletchley Park has all it needs today to rightfully become a world-class heritage and education centre.
