Bletchley Park And The Imperial War Museum Duxford
Join us on an interesting tour, which offers a fascinating insight into Britain's achievements during the Second World War. In 1991, Bletchley Park, the wartime home of Allied code breaking, was saved from destruction by Tony Sale and some colleagues. They transformed it into a museum devoted to the recognition and reconstruction of this crucial aspect of world history, which had remained completely secret until the early 1970's.
