Discover Britain’s Best Kept Secret with Newmarket Holidays

Newmarket HolidaysUntil fairly recently, Bletchley Park was deemed one of Britain’s best-kept secrets – home to clandestine operations, including the Government Code and Cypher School, during WWII, this site was of vital importance to Britain’s national security. The top-secret work done at Bletchley Park, also known as “Station X”, is credited with shortening the war by two years, saving many thousands of lives. Relax and enjoy your two-day break, knowing that Newmarket Holidays has taken care of every detail.

History of Station X

Learn how the arrival of “Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party” at the Buckinghamshire mansion in 1938 marked the beginning of the end of the Second World War. This small group, seeming bent on spending a weekend together at their country home, were actually members of MI6 and the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS). This secret team’s mission was to collect intelligence, and to crack the codes and ciphers of the Nazi command. The secretive nature of Bletchley Park became more difficult to keep over the next few years, as thousands of people joined the team. Tours of this fascinating destination will offer insights into the world of code-breaking engaged in by these mathematical geniuses.

A Trip to Remember

Travel to the area by coach, visiting Oxford on the first day of this two-day break, with time to explore this “City of Dreaming Spires”. An optional excursion to Sir Winston Churchill’s birthplace, Blenheim Palace, offers fascinating insights into the palace’s history, Baroque architecture, and beautiful formal gardens. Wander the shops at the Covered Market, or relax and enjoy afternoon tea at the famous Grand Café. Dinner and a comfortable night’s sleep at a quality hotel will have you ready for more fun the next day.

Day two sees you exploring Station X, learning of its vital contributions to WWII through a guided tour. See the famous “Enigma” code-breaking machines, and view a stunning private collection of Churchill memorabilia. Optional entry into the National Museum of Computing and the Colossus and Tunny galleries provides additional insight into the enigmatic world of clandestine operations. A friendly Newmarket Holidays Tour Manager will be on hand the entire time to ensure everything runs smoothly, and to answer any questions.
