His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent visited Milton Keynes this morning, to officially open a restored wartime building at Bletchley Park.

Hut 11A is home to the museum’s latest permanent exhibition, The Bombe Breakthrough, which charts the work of Alan Turing in building the machine that broke Enigma.

Iain Standen, CEO of the Bletchley Park Trust, said: “We are grateful to our Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Kent, for his presence here today. Hut 11A: The Bombe Breakthrough tells a crucial part of the Bletchley Park story and the opening today is the culmination of many years of hard work and research necessary to create an engaging and informative exhibition.”

Entrance to Hut 11A: The Bombe Breakthrough is included in the main ticket price, which offers free unlimited visits for 12 months. To find out more about visiting Bletchley Park, go to www.bletchleypark.org.uk
