Now before you think a place like Bletchley Park is only for mega history buffs and those on the more mature side of life – think again! This isn’t my area of expertise or interest (I’m more of an ancient history girl!), but experiencing a place like this with someone who is truly fascinated is infectious! It really opens your eyes to the incredibly complex nature of the human mind, and what you can achieve if you’re on the crazy clever (my words) end of the spectrum. The fact that the work that went on at Bletchley Park was kept a government secret for decades makes it all the more intriguing; it puts what you learned or think you know about the war out the window, it makes you reevaluate history. I think of the stories I heard from my Grandad and Great-Grandad about the war, and now I know that Bletchley had an influence on all of that. So with that being said, because an admission ticket allows you further visits free for a year, and this wealth of information, history and work of national importance is literally on our doorstep, I’ll make sure I’m available to tag along next time, too.
