The location of this secret work was Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire, 55 miles from London. An impressive mansion with a series of ‘huts’ where thousands of staff broke codes during World War Two. Once Britain’s Best Kept Secret, today Bletchley Park is an important historic site which can be visited. See some of the iconic World War Two code-breaking huts where these astonishing achievements took place. Some historians believe the work carried out here shortened the war by two years.
Home to the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a grand aristocratic home befitting the high status of a Dukedom.
