Heroes of WWII: Royal Air Force & Codebreakers of Bletchley Park Day Trip

“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few,” Winston Churchill. Join us celebrating the brave men and women of 1940s Britain

Saturdays weekly in 'winter season' October - March; 09:00 - approximately 18:30

It was at Bletchley Park that the Germans ‘uncrackable’ Enigma Code was broken, allowing the allies to read Axis wireless traffic. The museum holds some fascinating exhibits. Seeing the Enigma machines will be an undoubted highlight. The site now boasts a Visitor Centre, restored buildings and refreshed exhibits to preserve and commemorate the tireless work of the Codebreakers.  The landscape is being returned to its tranquil setting, with areas returned to lawn and the footprints of the long-gone Huts 2 and 9 marked out to remind visitors where they were. The tennis courts have also been restored to grass, as they were in late 1940 and early 1941.

The North London RAF Museum, set on the historic site of the Hendon Aerodrome, is comprised of five major buildings and hangars dedicated to the history of aviation and the British Royal Air Force. There are several interactive exhibits, a Battle of Britain Hall, flight simulators and a 3D cinema in addition to the extensive aircraft collection. This museum houses over 100 aircraft including some very early designs, one of only two surviving Vickers Wellingtons, the Avro Lancaster S-Sugar, the only complete Hawker Typhoon and the only Boulton Paul Defiant remaining in the world.
