Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes has been given an official stamp of approval from the National tourist board. The Home of the Codebreakers has been granted Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Status.

Bletchley Park, once Britain's best kept secret, is now a heritage site and museum. The Park's Second World War successes helped shorten the war by around two years.

Pam Foden from VisitEngland says “We’re delighted to welcome Bletchley Park to our Quality Assurance scheme. Our Quality Rose Marque is a recognised stamp of approval, assuring visitors that the attraction offers a memorable, quality experience."

Iain Standen, CEO of the Bletchley Park Trust, said “We’re delighted to have been given this official stamp of approval. Bletchley Park is undergoing huge changes this year, with the £7.4m Heritage Lottery Funded restoration project now underway."
