Once known simply as Station X, Bletchley Park was the country’s main decryption centre during World War II and is now a museum dedicated to the efforts of the startlingly smart code breakers who worked there, including the likes of Alan Turing, Dilly Knox and (fewer people know this) James Bond creator Ian Fleming, who worked in naval intelligence. The work of these (at the time) unsung heroes did more, in Churchill’s opinion, than any other single factor to help the Allies win the war. The museum tells the fascinating tale of how the staff (and at one time there were 10,000 of them) worked towards cracking Enigma and Lorenz with the help of Colossus, the world’s first semi-programmable computer. An utterly compelling attraction, all the more so when you think that there was a ban on even mentioning Bletchley Park’s work until the 1970s. Don’t miss the Churchill Collection – a great memorabilia treasure trove – and the audio tour which really brings the place to life.
