ALAN TURING ANNOUNCED AS THE NEW FACE OF ENGLAND’S £50 BANK NOTE

Celebrate with a stay in the Alan Turing Suite at University Arms, Cambridge, complete with Heywood Hill curated library inspired by his life and work

July 17thCambridge

Alan Turing, now widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence has just been named the face of the new £50 note, due to come into circulation in late 2021. Turing was chosen by the Bank of England out of a list of other notable scientists including Rosalind Franklin, Stephen Hawking and Ada Lovelace, making him the first LGBT+ icon to appear on a bank note. Most notably, the work of Alan Turing helped to accelerate Allied efforts to crack the Enigma Code during the Second World War, and he later played a pivotal role in the development of early computers. Turing studied at King’s College, Cambridge from 1931 to 1934 and was appointed a fellow of the school on his graduation. Sitting just around the corner, is University Arms hotel which first opened in 1834. Turing may well have wined and dined at the hotel, which is one of Cambridge’s most historic properties during his time at the iconic university. University Arms relaunched in August 2018 after a two year, £80m transformation and design collaboration between renowned interior designer, Martin Brudnizki and legendary classical architect, John Simpson. All 12 of the beautiful and ‘playfully’ designed suites at the hotel are named after famous Cambridge alumni, one of which is the ‘Turing Suite’.  It comes complete with a bespoke library inspired by his work, specially curated by Heywood Hill, one of the leading bookshops of London. The suite is finished with a portrait of Turing as a student and has views of the historic Parker’s Piece. 

Rates for the Turing Suite start from £419 per night. For more information please email: [email protected]
