Blue Plaque - Alan Turing - Hampton High Street


This Blue Plaque memorial to mathematician, computer scientist and cryptographer Alan Turing is not in central London, but in the South West suburb of Hampton, when he worked at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, after World War 2.

Whilst at NPL Alan Turing designed a ACE general purpose computer in 1946, a scaled down working model of which called Pilot ACE is now in the Science Museum in South Kensington.
