Places to stay in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes itself is notable for its short history - it was built in the 1960s, and is perhaps best known for its "concrete cows" sculptures which currently stand in Central Milton Keynes Shopping Centre.

The city's vast green spaces come as a surprise to many visitors; the area boasts a number of national parks and lakes, and visiting families won't be disappointed with the wealth of nature and wildlife to be found both in and outside the city. The surrounding villages are just as charming, with traditional pubs and tea shops to stop in on your way through.

Five Free Things To Do In Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is connected to miles and miles of walks across the southern countryside. Head along the Grand Union Canal or walk through one of the many parks and gardens inside the city.

A network of designated cycle paths makes Milton Keynes one of the best cycling destinations in the UK. Ensure you take a map, as you might easily lose where you are!

Willen Lakeside Park
This beautiful park has two large lakes and a variety of activities including adventure playgrounds, water sports, a high ropes course and a variety of summer events during the holidays.

Linford Wood
These beautiful woods are the oldest in the area, promising lush natural scenery. Look out for hidden sculptures nestled among the trees!

Bletchley Park
Bletchley is home to one of the most significant locations in recent national history; this is where the Enigma codes were broken during WWII, and today you'll find the National Museum of Computing as well as beautifully landscaped gardens to explore.
