Britain's Best Kept Secret
Britain's Best Kept Secret
... well it was during WWII anyway. This is part of the Bletchley Park site where the German "Enigma" codes were broken by a team of brilliant cryptographers and an army of dedicated female operators from the services who manned the many machines. In one of the blocks on site is a recreation of COLOSSUS the World's first semi-programmable computer. This site is well worth a visit - and tickets are valid for a year so you can come back as often as you like in that time. See their website LinkExternal link
