Things to do in Milton Keynes
A large town in Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes was designated as a “new town” in 1967 after the government decided that more towns were needed to deal with the housing congestion in London. Originally a small town before the major overhaul and development, it is fastly becoming a centre of business, culture and entertainment.
With its delicately urban feel, there is plenty for visitors to enjoy throughout their stay. From the local museum, casino and the glamourous walks around Emberton Country Park, you’ll be able to fill out your spare time with many relaxing and insightful experiences. Bletchley Park, the base for the codebreakers during WWII and the setting of The Imitation Game, is a short trip away and delivers the exceptional National Museum of Computing. You’ll be able to dine casually and in style thanks to the array of restaurants and cafes that fill up the area with succulent food and luscious beverages. Shopaholics will find all they need in the shopping centres around the town, offering big brands and good times at great prices.
There are five railway stations; Milton Keynes Central, Bletchley, Wolverton, Fenny Stratford and Bow Brickhill. Milton Keynes Central is the best one due to its connections to London and and other parts of the UK. The M1 motorway and the A5 are close by, ideal for drivers. Finally, there are great bus links that go around MK and the surrounding areas. All in all, you’ll be able to get from A to B with ease.
