Enjoy a discounted day out at Bletchley Park on the Marston Vale Line
The Community Rail Partnership has been successful in securing an exclusive discount for entry to the National Codes Centre at Bletchley Park. This offer, being run as a trial until Easter 2010, allows anyone with a valid Martson Vale Rail Ticket to obtain a 20% discount on entry.
Bletchley Park, the home of the Codebreakers during World War Two, is undoubtedly an undiscovered national gem. There are more than enough different activities and exhibitions to occupy most families for a whole day, from wartime toys to working computers. There's a wartime mini cinema and an outstanding Churchill collection. Lively exciting events are held on special days throughout the year. Have a look through the ornate Victorian Mansion that was headquarters to intelligence staff during the War. Wander by the Lake, relax and observe the wildlife. Children can let off steam on our new playground. And then, of course, there is the famous Enigma machine.
Stephen Sleight, Transport Officer, said "We are really pleased to have secured this excellent offer for our passengers for this excellent attraction. Bletchley Park is an excellent day out for all the family, so i would recommend that everyone take up this exclusive offer."
Terms and Conditions
The 20% can only be reclaimed on rail tickets (either single or return) that have one of the following stations shown in the from section:

The decision to apply the discount is at the discretion of Bletchley Park. All the normal terms and conditions of entry to Bletchley Park apply. Visit www.bletchleypark.org.uk for more information.
