Registered Charity No: 1012743 (England & Wales).
Bletchley Park’s mission is to preserve and enhance Bletchley Park, to attract, engage and educate visitors from all over the world through the continuing restoration and development of the entire estate and our collection. Our Mission is to highlight the achievements of Bletchley Park in the Second World War, it’s role as a birthplace of computing, it’s importance for understanding the past and relevance for the future.
Historians have estimated that the secret work of decoding enemy radio signals at Bletchley Park may have shortened the war by up to two years, thereby saving countless lives. It was also the home of the world’s first working electronic computer. From the end of the war through to 1974, the true history of the work and success at Bletchley Park was kept a closely guarded secret for reasons of national security. However, in 1974 the story of the work carried out at Bletchley Park became known and public interest in what happened at the site has been growing ever since.
Founded in 1992, Bletchley Park Trust has succeeded in saving the site, developing a museum and operating a substantial education programme. Bletchley Park is now undergoing a restoration programme to become a world class museum and heritage site and to promote learning to the next generation about the unique achievements of the 10,000 men and women who worked at Bletchley Park during World War Two.
Your legacy will help us preserve this important site for future generations. For more information, please contact Claire Glazebrook (Director of Development) on 01908 272651.
