Did you know that many of the Bletchley Park codebreakers enjoyed puzzles and games in their free time? Hugh Alexander was an International Chess Master, Joan Clarke was good at maths puzzles, Dilly Knox told riddles and Bill Tutte enjoyed playing Mastermind. Alan Turing even played Monopoly on a specially designed board – and lost! Find out what the codebreakers got up to in their spare time, play some games, make your own and challenge your friends and family!


Taking place every Tuesday and Thursday from 31st July – 30th August, drop in activities are included with admission. Suitable for families with children aged 5-14 years of age. Children should be supervised by their parents/carers at all times.
