Key Tour Info
Why choose the Bletchley Park & Blenheim Palace
The location of secret works was Bletchley Park, 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. After John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, defeated the French at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704, Queen Anne gave him the Manor of Woodstock and had this palatial house built for him in gratitude. This Baroque masterpiece was built to impress; the long drive up to the great court provides splendid views of Capability Brown’s world famous landscaped grounds.
