Bletchley Park, the once secret home of Britain’s World War Two Codebreakers, now one of Milton Keynes’ best-loved visitor attractions, has won a prestigious British Coach Tourism Award.

The museum received the award for Coach Friendly Attraction – History & Heritage, at a glittering awards evening on Wednesday 22nd September 2021.

Bletchley Park beat tough competition to win the award – also shortlisted were Castle Howard, Hever Castle & Gardens, Swanage Railway and Warwick Castle.

Following temporary closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bletchley Park reopened to visitors on Monday 17 May 2021, and group visitors are already booking for winter 2021 and beyond.

Visiting Bletchley Park this autumn? Visitors have the chance to make their own recycled Halloween decorations in drop-in craft workshops running from 23 – 31 October as part of The Big Draw 2021.

Father Christmas will also be making a welcome return to Bletchley Park when he takes up residence in the beautifully decorated Vintage Christmas Grotto in the historic Mansion.
