As well as the astounding history here, which is really well laid out and documented, there are stunning gardens and a lovely location for a picnic on a warm spring day.

Excellent day out, which has given me a new found respect of the contribution Bletchley park has over the last 50 years. I particularly enjoyed the time-line of languages, the display of memory thorough the ages, and all the very awesome working machines of past...More

Depending on how much information you want to glean, I would allow at least two hours. If you want to also take a tour in the Tunny and Colossus Galleries then I would allow 4 hours. Hope that helps.
