Latimer Place in Buckinghamshire, known as 'Britain's most secret home', has launched a new two night history package with specialist secret service historian and author, Helen Fry. This showcases the manor house property's incredible WWII history, where secret listeners who bugged the Nazi's garnered vital information, which ultimately helped win the war.

During WWII, Latimer House, as it was then known, became the centre of top secret activities run by MI5 and MI6. Thousands of German prisoners of war, including Hitler's Generals, were prisoners between 1942 and 1945 and their cells were bugged providing secrets about the war, which aided the intelligence from Bletchley Park and enabled Britain to win the war. Over 10,000 conversations were heard; all recorded in over 100,000 transcripts that now survive in the National Archives. All bugs were linked to the 'M Room' where a group of secret listeners garnered all vital information such as the development of Hitler's secret weapons.

Over the weekend, Helen will bring this story to light in a talk based around her book, the M Room, and will take place in the hotel's library. This will be followed by a tour around the hotel seeing the areas behind this historic story. The package includes two nights' accommodation on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis; Helen Fry's talk; a historic walk around the hotel; a signed copy of her book, access to gym, sauna, steam room and indoor swimming pool; wifi and live jazz entertainment.

Today, Latimer Place combines contemporary design with Victorian architecture and is one of the most beautiful hotels in Buckinghamshire. Overlooking the Chess Valley, the hotel sits in a beautiful parkland setting and offers a range of stylish accommodation along with superb leisure facilities. The sweeping drive, landscaped gardens and beautiful Victorian manor house help retain the hotel's incredible history.
