Breaking The Code - Walking Tours

  • 17 November 2016 - 19 November 2016
  • On Tour / External

Alan was many things to many people: a scientist and mathematician, a war hero and a gay man.

After creating a machine that cracked the German Enigma code and won Britain the war, Turing arrived in Manchester with an even bigger task in mind – the development of the modern computer. It would be a task he left unfinished, publically humiliated and destroyed by the revelation of his sexuality and prosecution for indecency.

In this tour, we'll be exploring Alan's Manchester, to understand how Alan became a modern martyr.
