A typical visit to Bletchley Park will include a  guided tour of the grounds, a workshop session of your choosing and scheduled ‘self-guided’ time to explore inside the mansion, museums, huts and of course our shop. We will also allocate a lunch slot and space for your group as part of your day.(Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any storage space for bags or lunches during your visit)

At Bletchley Park we offer a variety of facilitated workshops for school groups with specific focus on history, mathematics and computing. Each workshop is 60 minutes in duration and is designed to be engaging, hands-on and challenging for students of all abilities.
