Bletchley Park Coach Trip & Tour

Experience the once top-secret world of codebreaking set within an atmospheric Victorian estate.

As part of a week-long series of events marking Kellogg College’s many ties to Bletchley Park, we are arranging a coach trip and guided tour of the site where Alan Turing and 10,000 others worked to break the Enigma and Lorenz ciphers, during World War Two.

Those attending will need to be at Kellogg College (60 Banbury Road, OX2 6PN) by 9.45am. The coach will leave Kellogg College promptly at 10:00 and will return at around 17:30. For a full itinerary of the day’s activities, please see below.

On this special occasion, entry to Bletchley Park is free for College members and £18.50 for guests.  This price includes a guided tour of Bletchley Park and a group visit to The National Museum of Computing, which houses the Colossus and Tunny rebuild galleries. Please note that lunch is not included. You are welcome to bring your own packed lunch or use the cafés on site. Coach travel is a further £10 per head.

Those wishing to attend are welcome to make their own travel arrangements (click to see how to find Bletchley Park). If you do wish to go direct it is still essential to book so that we can vouch for you on arrival and know that we need to look out for you. Please meet the coach party just inside the Visitor Centre. Roads permitting, we aim to arrive at around 11:20.
