BLETCHLEY PARK THE SECRETS OF WAR BY COACH

Wartime secrets and spies

Uncover the secrets of Bletchley Park and discover how its code-breaking activities, and Churchill's 'Silent Geese', hastened the end of World War Two. Clandestine operations, enigma machines and tales of deception are brought to life on this fascinating trip, which includes an optional 'Palace of War' excursion to Blenheim Palace.

What The Price Includes

  • Return coach travel
  • One night's dinner, bed and English breakfast accommodation in a good hotel in the Bletchley Park Area (within 60 minutes)
  • A visit to Bletchley Park with guided tour
  • A visit to Blenheim Palace
  • The services of a Newmarket Tour Manager
  • Government taxes and service charges

Single rooms are available for a supplement 

Itinerary

Day One

Join our excursion to stunning Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Learn how the palace survived the onslaught of 400 evacuated boys on the guided 'Palace at War' tour, marvel at the English Baroque architecture, and wander the award-winning formal gardens and 2,000 acres of 'Capability' Brown's parkland. We'll arrive back at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day Two

Find out how the intelligence produced at 'Station X' shortened the Second World War by two years on today's fascinating Bletchley Park guided tour. See the famous German, code-breaking 'Enigma' machines up close; discover the private collection of Churchill memorabilia; and visit Bletchley's wartime sub-post office, believed to be an undercover mailroom with the secret address of PO Box 111 Bletchley. 

In the afternoon we'll head home, arriving back in the local area by early to mid evening.

Further Information

Bletchley Park guided tour

Please note that there is a significant amount of walking involved on the guided tour at Bletchley Park. You will cover approximately one mile, with stops throughout. On certain dates the 'Palace at War' guided tour is not available and will be substituted for a standard non-guided entrance so that you can enjoy Blenheim Palace, Park and Gardens at your leisure.

Museum entrance fees

There is a small charge payable locally to enter the National Museum of Computing and the Colossus & Tunny galleries.
