River Lee Country Park

Stretching between Waltham Abbey in Essex and Broxbourne in Hertfordshire this 1,000 acre park has been transformed from old gravel pits to an inspiring country park for all the family to enjoy.

There’s miles of surfaced pathways making it the ideal place to enjoy an invigorating walk or cycle ride (cycle hire available) amongst picturesque surroundings. You can hop on an electric pleasure boat, pedalo or rowing boat at Lee Valley Boat Centre and navigate the River Lee, let the kids go wild in miles of open space while sitting back and watching the wildlife go by, or simply relax and unwind with a picnic.

If you’re an adrenalin enthusiast, a trip to the brand new Lee Valley White Water Centre (host to the London 2012 Canoe Slalom events) is a must. Whether you fancy riding the rapids yourself, or simply want to watch the action from the café terrace, it’s well worth a trip!

Car parks: Fishers Green car park, Stubbins Hall Lane, Crooked Mile, Waltham Abbey, Essex, EN9 2EF (no public transport)

Pindar car park, Windmill Lane, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire EN9 1XQ

Bletchley Park

Travelling under the guise of 'Captain Ridley's Shooting Party', a small team of scholars-turned-codebreakers arrived at Bletchley Park in the summer of 1939.

Their mission: to crack the Nazi Enigma cypher. The odds against them were a staggering 150,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1. Their success in breaking this seemingly 'unbreakable' code was one of the greatest intellectual achievements of the twentieth century.

By March 1946 they were all gone, removing every scrap of evidence of their codebreaking exploits as they left. Their efforts in breaking those 'unbreakable' codes in the utmost secrecy caused Winston Churchill to coin the phrase "the geese that laid the golden eggs and never cackled". It would be decades before Bletchley Park would start to reveal its secrets.

By 1991, the Park was deserted, its buildings facing demolition. The Bletchley Park Trust was formed with the aim of preserving the site for posterity. So began a long and arduous campaign. The Trust fought off hostile bids from property speculators and waded through a mountain of Government red tape to clinch a deal that saved Bletchley Park for the nation.
