    For years, I have supported Bletchley Park on social media and felt I knew enough about the place without ever visiting.  I was a moron. 

    They recently launched a new film D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion film which received a lot of press and spurred my interest to make a visit which I finally did this week. 

    The visit started with a train ride to Bletchley – which is very easy to get to from London and New Street (Birmingham) so the excuse that it’s not easy to get to was taken away.  The train station is literally 2-minute walk to Bletchley Park.  The ticket to Bletchley Park is a season pass as even though we stayed 5 hours, we still didn’t get to see everything.

    When we arrived at Block C which is the entrance, shop, exhibition and café area, we were met by Rosie Burke (Media Manager) who introduced us to David Kenyon (Research Historian) who took us on a guided tour.  David is one of these people who has the perfect position and personality for his knowledge.
