Drop-in ‘Think, Make, Do’ workshops covering codes and puzzles are packed with hands-on activities and challenges.

Meanwhile, a family trail with Alan Turing’s teddy bear Porgy runs from October 22 until October 26 will get all the family cracking codes.

The home of the codebreakers has also teamed up with national art initiative The Big Draw for a series of events from October 27 until October 29.

It will include a family art trail and installations by artist Mark Sibley.

Following its STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) theme, there will be a chance for kids to get stuck-in with embossing and printmaking.

Older children will jump at the chance to have a night-time tour of the site with the unique Blackout Bletchley, a fundraising event for the Bletchley Park Trust and part of Museums at Night, running from 19:00 to 21:00 on October 28 and October 29.

With a free multimedia guide and pre-booked afternoon tea’s available, there is something for every member of the family.

Entry is free for under 12s and all tickets give unlimited visits for one year.
