Bletchley Park may seem more suited to the adult world but there is plenty for children to do and learn.
Why not print off a fun trail or quiz sheet to bring with you.
Also have a look at our Young Codebreakers' Zone.
Also make a visit to our Toys and Memorabilia Exhibition, a large, varied collection of playthings and domestic artifacts related to everyday life in the 1930s through to the immediate post-war period. There are toy soldiers, model trains, model vehicles, Britain's lead farm and garden, make-do-and-mend toys, dolls and teddies. Those who are studying or are interested in the National Curriculum 'Britain since the 1930s' will find this collection of great interest.
The play area will once again be open for the summer where the whole family can enjoy the giant chess board. As always a full children’s menu is available in our café.
There is also a range of children’s merchandise available in the shop including our children’s guide book.
Block B Museum
The Story of Bletchley Park exhibition tells the history of codebreaking at the Park, including real Enigma machines. The story continues with a real-life dispatch rider's motorbike and displays of listening devices used to intercept the German signals. There is also a cartoon storyboard showing what went on at the Park during the war years.
We also have displays on Pigeons at War and the Enigma Cinema which shows films from the 1930s and 40s.
Explore the Park & Spy on the Wildlife!
The 29 acre site has lots of wide open spaces to explore and have fun in. We have many friendly ducks, swans and other bird species. See if you can spot one of the secret squirrels that live on our grounds! Keep your eyes peeled for 'Enigma', our resident black and white cat, who lives in the Bletchley Park Garage.
