Bletchley Park was the top-secret site of the World War Two Codebreakers. The property housed the Government Code and Cypher School, which became well known for penetrating the secret communications used by the Axis Powers during the war. The work done at Bletchley Park is believed to have shortened the war by several years and ensured its outcome.
The Government Code and Cypher School began operations at the site in 1939 and continued throughout the war. Later in the war, American cryptographers were posted here as well. Secrecy continued after the war and the work done at the facility wasn’t discussed publicly until the mid-1970s. After the war, the property had multiple uses, such as a teacher training college. In the early 1990s, the Milton Keynes Borough Council formed the Bletchley Trust to maintain the site as a museum.
This historic site is now a heritage center that attracts hundreds of thousands visit the site each year with exhibitions that include Codebreaking in World War One, Lorenz Cipher, Alan Turing, Enigma machines, Japanese codes, and more. Visitors of all ages enjoy the interactive exhibits that explain codebreaking and a pigeon exhibition, which teaches visitors about how pigeons were used during the war.
