Milton Keynes Mini Guide
As the town was built by the government specifically to accommodate England’s ever increasing population, Milton Keynes has been conveniently located near to the M1 at junction 14, and the M1 joins it with Birmingham
and London. You can also take the A40 to Cambridge
and Oxford. Milton Keynes operates a very effective park and ride service with hundreds of buses in operation so there is no need to get caught in traffic if you don’t want to.
Again hoping to please its residents, there is a massive 16 screen cinema in Milton Keynes as well as an indoor ski slope so there is no excuse for getting bored, however new the city might be. These incredible features are contained within the Xscape centre which has attractions such as an indoor climbing wall and even an indoor skydiving centre. Just to complete the adrenaline rush if you head to the nearby Willen Lake there is a wakeboard tow rope system so that you can board behind a speed boat.
Teenagers are well catered to as well as there is a skate park and a BMX park in Milton Keynes. And young children can go the Gulliver’s Land theme park which has attractions based on the popular novel. Music and live performance lovers may want to note that Milton Keynes has the most popular theatre in the country in terms of admissions and often gets West End shows which have come to the end of their run in London.
If you start to find it all too new and lifeless in Milton Keynes you can jump into your Rhino hire car to the nearby villages of Woburn and Stony Stratford to have a pint in a proper old English pub.
- 23rd June sees the annual Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival on Willen Lake. It's a colourful and exciting event attended by thousands of people. See dragonboatfestivals.co.uk for more details.
