Seconded. Did both last August and it was great. The amount of restored hardware that's operational is impressive and docents are knowledgeable.
If you get to the computing museum, having a chat with whoever is in the Colossus gallery is worth your time.
Admission to BP is £17.75 and the Computing Museum is £7.50. Both are well worth the admission price plus the train ride.

Yes, Bletchley is a good day out but be aware the national museum of computing is a separate entity and has its own entry fee.
