Milton Keynes is a very unusual location. While most towns in the UK have a long and storied history, this entire area was built to be the size of a city from existing towns in the 1960s. The idea was an ambitious one: to create a town in order to ease overpopulation in London boroughs. It not only worked, but Milton Keynes far exceeded expectations then and continues to do so today.
It remains an ideal location for those looking to commute to London and elsewhere, thanks to its five railway stations. These are available alongside long distance coach and local bus services, as well as offering easy access to the M1 for those with vehicles. However, Milton Keynes has gone far beyond its initial purpose of accommodating those over spilling from the capital. In the half a century since its inception, it has developed its own sense of culture and community that extends far beyond its rather young years.
It’s a town with a keen love of sport. It boasts two professional football teams, as well as being a home to teams for activities as varied as Formula 1 and ice hockey. Sports fans can check out the action at Stadium MK or enjoy active days out at the likes of Xscape, which has an indoor ski slope and is next door to iFLY, an indoor skydiving centre.
If you have a passion for art and culture, you won’t be disappointed here either, thanks to Milton Keynes’ several musical venues. These include the National Bowl, which is capable of holding up to 65,000 people. It’s seen huge names such as Michael Jackson and David Bowie in its illustrious history. Other examples include the MK11 Live Music and Sports Bar, as well as The Stables, which plays everything from jazz to world music. There’s also art exhibitions held every year, museums and public sculptures that really bring the town to life.
