Bletchley Park was the scene for one of the most remarkable stories of World War II. Members of MI6 and the Government Code and Cypher School were on a mission to break cipher systems, the most famous being the Enigma. Step back in time and experience the sounds during World War II with the highly atmospheric snippets of conversation, music, laughter, bicycle bells and steam trains. The WW2 landscape has been restored at Bletchley Park for all to experience and enjoy.

Woburn Abbey

Woburn Abbey was originally a monastery which was given by Edward VI to the Russell family in 1547. Leading architects have created the stunning historic house as it is today. During WWI Woburn Abbey was turned into a military hospital and in WWII the WRNs (Women's Royal Naval Service) were billeted for their vital war work at Bletchley, before moving onto the home of the Codebreakers.
