Bletchley Park Trip: Codebreaking behind the scenes

Explore, experience and enjoy the once top-secret world of iconic Codebreaking Huts and Blocks set within an atmospheric Victorian estate.

As part of our week-long series of events marking Kellogg College’s working partnership with Bletchley Park, we have arranged for an exclusive guided tour and talk, all on the site where Alan Turing and 10,000 others worked to break the Enigma (and Lorenz) ciphers during World War Two.

There will be a guided tour of Bletchley Park 11.30- 12.30 followed by free time to explore. Kellogg Fellow Michael Smith will be giving a talk on ‘The Role Of Women at Bletchley Park’ at 13.30-14.30 in the Bletchley Park Dining Hall.

Entry to Bletchley Park will be FREE for College members and available to non-members at the discounted price of £14.00.

Kellogg members and their guests can book a place on the coach which will leave Kellogg College (60 Banbury Road, OX2 6PN) at 10.00, so please be at College by 09.45. The journey takes approximately one hour so there will be plenty of time to explore the attractions and grounds. Please note that lunch is not included so do pack your own or use the cafe on site. The coach will leave Bletchley Park at 15:00 returning to College for around 16:00. The use of the coach is £10.00 per head (College members and non-members), although those wishing to attend are welcome to make their own travel arrangements.

Booking is required, whether you plan to travel by coach or not.

There are now very limited places remaining for the trip to Bletchley Park on Wednesday 7th March. To book one of the remaining places please email For those who aren’t successful in securing one of the remaining places, a waiting list will be run in case of cancellations.
