Bletchley Park is a place of exceptional historical importance. It remains highly relevant to our lives today and for the future. It is the home of British codebreaking and a birthplace of modern information technology. It played a major role in World War Two, producing secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the conflict
.
Bletchley Park comprises a late Victorian mansion, altered and enlarged several times which was the hub of a large estate. Stables, cottages and other estate buildings survive to the west and north of the Mansion. Within the park there are also around twenty utilitarian wartime timber huts and brick/concrete block built for use by the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) during World War II.
