Turing House

Alan Turing was a British mathematician who has since been acknowledged as one the most innovative and powerful thinkers of the 20th Century. As one of the most influential code breakers of World War II, his cryptology intelligence is believed to have been partly responsible for the Allied victory. His work breaking the German ‘Enigma’ code led to the first early computers and the work he did at that time laid the foundations for modern computing. In 2021 he was chosen to be the person on the back of the new £50 note.
