Run by the Radio Society of Great Britain, the National Radio Centre (NRC) is a showcase for radio communications technology.

The National Radio Centre provides the opportunity to discover the history and development of radio from its outset through to modern communication methods.

The NRC is open seven days a week, including most Bank Holidays. It is closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Winter opening times: 09.30 – 16.00
Summer opening times: 09.30 – 17.00

(Check the Bletchley Park website for Winter/Summer dates)

Entry to the NRC is included within the general admission ticket to Bletchley Park.

RSGB Members can gain free access by downloading a voucher from the RSGB website. You will need to print up your voucher and take it with you on the day.
