The work to restore the other huts is well under way so you need to be a bit stealthy to get past the builders but once inside there are no issues

Considering the history of the site it's amazing to think that sections are still in a derelict state :(

During the Second World War, Bletchley Park was the site of the United Kingdom's main decryption establishment, the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), where ciphers and codes of several Axis countries were decrypted, most importantly the ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines. It also housed a secret radio intercept station, and also a message sending station, although interception was soon moved to a location with better reception. "Station X", "London Signals Intelligence Centre" and "Government Communications Headquarters" were all cover names that were used during the war, and the latter (GCHQ) was adopted for the successor peacetime organisation that still bears this name
I enjoyed my visit so much I walked in and made a fiver donation to the guy on the desk before I left

I hope the restoration work is sympathetic
