The Mansion
Bletchley Park is a nineteenth century house in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. During the second world war it was used by the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), which played a key role in deciphering top secret German military signals and is said to have shortened the war by two years. Alan Turing had a pivotal role in this work. Others who worked there included Angus Wilson and Dillwyn Knox

Bletchley Park is now owned by a trust whose aim is to preserve and develop the site as a world-class museum, heritage site and education centre,[1]

In 2012 the pre-launch for LGBT History Month 2013 was held there.
