Visit to Bletchley Park

We are organising a visit to Bletchley Park for postgraduate students. This will be an all day event taking place on Sunday February 2, 2014 with a planned departure from the Euston Station at 9:30am end expected return at 17:00 same place.

We will visit the World War II code-breaking centre including a tour of Bletchley Park museum to see original restored enigma machines and the original ‘Bombe’ device used to crack the Enigma code. The visit will also include a guided tour of the National Museum of Computing to see many of the world’s first electronic computers, including a fully operational ‘Colossus’. Both museums are running guided tours especially for us!

The total trip will cost less than £30 including the train ticket but not including lunch. The ACM Student Chapter will subsidise this trip, so final price will depend on the exact group size.
