It is a dark October night in 1944.
Britain rests uneasy.
But Bletchley Park does not sleep.
The great machines whirr as typewriters click and frantic footsteps hurry up and down each bustling corridor. Business as usual.
In this exciting new immersive event, you have been selected to join the codebreakers; and it is on this particular dark October night that you arrive for your induction.
Starting with a drink and cake in our Visitor Centre you will experience the thrill of entering Bletchley Park as a new recruit, explore the site after dark and see what the night-time residents got up to at work and play. Don’t forget to bring your torches and wrap up warm!
Of course, in this dimly-lit world of ciphers, spies and secrecy nothing is what it seems; be prepared for some surprises along the way.
You can choose from ten tour times with a maximum of 12 people per a tour, and use the rest of your visit to explore our Visitor Centre including the Entrance exhibition, WWI exhibition and Cyber Security exhibition.
This event is part of Museums at Night, a UK-wide festival of Lates in museums and galleries.
