Bletchley Park Coach Trip Itinerary

Day One: Optional Blenheim Palace guided tour

Leaving your pick-up point in the morning we'll head to beautiful Oxford, the "city of dreaming spires". Explore the colleges, such as imposing Christ Church, head to the shops of the charming Covered Market, or simply relax and enjoy afternoon tea at England's first coffee house, the Grand Cafe.

Alternatively, join our optional excursion to stunning Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Learn some of the stories and secrets of this historic palace on a guided tour, marvel at the English Baroque architecture, and wander the award-winning formal gardens and 2000 acres of 'Capability' Brown's parkland. We'll arrive back at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day Two: Included Bletchley Park tour

Find out how the intelligence produced at 'Station X' shortened the Second World War by two years on today's fascinating Bletchley Park self-guided tour, using excellent, multi-media guides. See the famous German 'Enigma' code cipher machines up close; and visit Bletchley's wartime sub-post office, believed to be an undercover mailroom with the secret address of PO Box 111 Bletchley.

In the afternoon we'll head home, arriving back at your original pick-up point by early-to-mid evening.

Further Information

Bletchley Park self-guided tour

Please note that there is a significant amount of walking involved in the self-guided tour at Bletchley Park. You will cover approximately one mile, with stops throughout.

Museum entrance fees

There is a small on-site charge to enter the National Museum of Computing and the Colossus and Tunny galleries.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

As usual with Newmarket, there were too many pickups which reduced the time at both of the destinations. The tour guide gave inadequate and inaccurate information about times and tickets both days which wasted more time. The coach was very comfortable but the driver took strange routes including turning round twice in small lanes which again wasted time. One journey took 90 minutes instead of 30. The hotel was fine and both destinations were beautiful but it was frustrating to have too little time to enjoy them. On the return journey 13 of us were dropped at Crewe with no pickup coach. After 20 minutes one of us rang Newmarket and they said we were not supposed to be there and had to send a minibus to rescue us, and our disorganised guide should have got off!

a good time - really enjoyed it.
Unfortunately the chef at the hotel did not have much idea about food intolerances. Did not have much of an evening meal. Good job I carry an emergency supply.
