Visitors numbers have soared this year at Bletchley Park, the home of the codebreakers.

This year has seen a huge restoration at the venue, a royal visit, and of course the release of hot film The Imitation Game.

Compared with the same fortnight last year, visitor numbers more than doubled in the last week of November and the first week of December 2014.

Throughout the year so far, nearly a third more people have visited Bletchley Park than they had by this time last year, and are set to exceed 190,000 by the end of the year.

Kelsey Griffin, Bletchley Park’s director of operations and communications, said “We’ve already seen a surge since The Imitation Game hit cinemas. It would be wonderful if we could show the world what rich history lives right here in Milton Keynes by attracting a record 200,000 visitors by the end of the year.”

Bletchley Park is offering a special discount on entry for groups of 12 or more people between now and the end of February 2015 - entry is just £11, compared to the normal admission price of £15. To book, contact groupbookings@bletchleypark.org.uk
