About Bletchley Park
Codebreaking at Bletchley Park first began in September 1938 when a small group of people, including members of MI6 and the Government Code and Cypher School (GC & CS) moved into the mansion. Over the course of the war its importance grew, and numerous huts were built. By 1944, around ten thousand people were working at Bletchley and its associated outstations.
Codebreaking Huts 3 and 6 have been carefully restored to resemble how the site looked during World War II, and include interactive exhibits, projected images and authentic set dressings. It was in these huts that Enigma messages were decrypted, translated and analyzed for vital intelligence.
Alan Turing, one of the most innovative thinkers of the 20th Century, oversaw and inspired the effort to decrypt cyphers generated by Nazi Germany’s Enigma machine at Bletchley. Turing’s story inspired the 2014 movie The Imitation Game.
The work at Bletchley also had a profound impact on computing, with the development of the world’s first electronic computer, the Colussus.
