Winston Churchill’s Birthplace


Winston Churchill was born at his Grandfathers (the Duke of Marlborough) humble home Blenheim Palace on 30 November 1874. Blenheim Palace is about 63 miles North West of Central London. Both the building and grounds (12000 acres) are impressive. The Palace itself was constructed from 1705 to 1722 and is one of the largest residences in the UK. The room he was born in is near the entrance. His mother was there visiting relatives when he was born well ahead of her due date. The self guided tour includes many of the state rooms in the Palace. But the real gem is the Churchill Display in the basement. It includes many of his childhood items, Military Uniforms and personal effects. Well worth the visit.

Bletchley Park


During World War II, a small estate in Buckinghamshire, England, became the allied epicenter of intelligence and code-breaking operations that would change the course of the war. Bletchley Park was the secret facility where a group of brilliant minds worked tirelessly to crack the Axis codes and ciphers. Their efforts had a profound impact on the outcome of the war and the world’s history.


Bletchley Park was originally a country mansion for for the financier and politician Sir Herbert Leon, but it was transformed into a top-secret code-breaking facility in 1938. The British government realized the importance of intercepting and decoding German and other Axis powers messages. The task was monumental, as the Axis powers used complex encryption machines like the Lorenz Cipher and Enigma machine. With a 3 rotor (more rotors were added as the war progressed) Enigma there are over 17,000 possibilities. At the time these machines were thought to be unbreakable. The team at Bletchley Park proved they were not.


At the heart of Bletchley Park were the cryptanalysts, mathematicians, linguists, and engineers who worked together to break codes and decipher messages. Among them was Alan Turing, a mathematician and computer science pioneer. His groundbreaking work in developing the Bombe machine, a device designed to crack Enigma-encrypted messages, was instrumental in the Allied victory.


The code-breaker’s success was a closely guarded secret, and the information they obtained was vital for military intelligence, allowing Allied forces to anticipate enemy movements and strategy. They played a pivotal role in many Allied Operations including the D-Day landings and the Battle of the Atlantic, among other crucial campaigns. As well as allowing the Allies to be prepared for various Axis Operations and either counter them or limit their success. Despite their extraordinary contributions, the work done at Bletchley Park remained classified for decades. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the true extent of their efforts began to be recognized.


Today, Bletchley Park is a museum and heritage site, offering visitors a glimpse into the world of code-breaking and a chance to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of World War II. The campus is nicely laid out and the map given at the visitors center makes navigating the area easy. We started at the main building and worked our way back to the visitors center.


Bletchley Park with its many well explained displays and original equipment is well worth the visit.

The Churchill War Rooms is part of the Imperial War Museum. (Which is to the right of this gallery) in London, located beneath the Treasury building in the Whitehall area of Westminster. The museum comprises the Cabinet War Rooms, a historic underground complex that housed a British government command centre throughout World War 2, and the Churchill Museum, museum exploring the life of Winston Churchill. (Link to the Churchill Birthplace Post)


Construction of the Cabinet War Rooms began in 1938. Became fully operational on 27 August 1939, a week before Britain declared war on Germany. The War Rooms remained in operation throughout the Second World War, before being abandoned in August 1945 after the surrender of Japan.


We booked our tour ahead of time and there was no wait to get inside at our appointed time. Both the Churchill Museum and the War Rooms are very well done with plenty to exhibits. While in the War Rooms you can imagine what it was like during the London Blitz.

Imperial War Museum


An easy walk from Westminster will bring you to the Imperial War Museum. If you have any interest in
Military History you should dedicate several hours to seeing it. An impressive collection awaits. When
we went they had a WW1 display as it was the 100 th anniversary of end of the Great War. Uniforms,
Trench Clubs, Flame Throwers, Trench Mortars, Gas masks. Tanks etc. The WW2 section was also
impressive with General Montgomery’s staff car and an Eagle from the Reich Chancellery being the two
stand out pieces. In our opinion the only Museum to surpass this is the Museum of Military History in
