Places to stay in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is a unique town in that it did not grow organically, but was planned and purpose-built from the 1960s onward. This is reflected in its strongly modernist architecture and functional grid layout. However, Milton Keynes is also a beautiful city, with many green parks, woods and lakes, and a 170-mile network of paths for cyclists and pedestrians (the Redways).

Milton Keynes has become a well-known centre for the performing arts, with a number of theatre troupes and performance poetry groups staging regular shows. The central shopping centre is one of the biggest in the country and features several sculptures and artworks for visitors to appreciate.
