The Bletchley

Why is it so awesome? Having a massive SOE interest since a child this was literally one of my favourite bar experiences ever. You arrive and down underground this bar is a recreation of life of code breaking during the Second World War. You are given a war jacket, all staff are in character as you spend the time with a morse code machine trying to break codes which creates a unique cocktail (you also have some cocktails to help fuel this mission)
