Didn't realised that this was within Bletchley Park. Friendly, informative staff and a highlight of the overall visit.

This was part of my visit to Bletchley Park. It was a very interesting section. It was amazing to see how people communicate by radio across the world. Something we take for granted, but in certain situations can be a life saver!

Excellent place to visit at Bletchley Park. The team at the National Radio Centre are very knowledgeable, lucid and very freindly when explaining all their radio equipment. We all take our communications for granted today and forget all the history and technical excellence past and...More

Very interesting as a part of the continuing Bletchley Park story. We weren't sure if you could visit separately to the main entrance.
