Our passionate curator will take you around the historic house exploring how the rooms were used over 70 years ago to carry out top-secret work as part of Operation Ultra. Discover how American soldiers stationed at Hall Place – code name Santa Fe – intercepted encoded messages sent by the Germans.

You will have time after the tour to visit our exhibition displaying GI veterans’ memories and declassified files that reveal the importance of their round-the-clock, top-secret work, which helped defeat the Nazis.
