Enigma: Exploring Bletchley Park

We have been planning to visit Bletchley Park for quite some time and this weekend we finally managed to get there. During the Second World War this was the hub of code-breaking activities and is famed for being the place where the Enigma machines were decrypted (among many other things).

I knew a fair bit about the German code-breaking activities at Bletchley Park before visiting but I wasn’t aware of all the Japanese code-breaking that went on there too.
