It's been announced today The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Bletchley Park, a heritage and education site, on Wednesday the 18th of June.

The Duchess of Cambridge will mark the completion of the year-long restoration project, which has restored the site to its World War Two appearance.

During the visit, Her Royal Highness will meet WW2 Codebreaker veterans who worked at the Government Code and Cypher School during WW2, where encrypted messages sent by the Navy, Army and Air Forces of Germany and its allies were decrypted, translated and analysed for vital intelligence.

The Duchess will view interactive exhibitions and demonstrations, and will meet the Design & Management Team and supporters who worked to deliver the project.

Bletchley Park's £8m Heritage Lottery Funded restoration project has seen more building work on the site than at any time since 1944, at the peak of war. The work carried out over the last year allows visitors to experience what it was like for the Codebreakers, as Bletchley Park has been returned to its wartime appearance and atmosphere, and now boasts a vibrant new Visitor Centre which will continue to welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.  

Bletchley Park is run by the Bletchley Park Trust, a charity formed in 1992 to preserve the site for the nation.
