Famous for being one of the “New Towns” of Britain, built to cope with London’s population increase, Milton Keynes is a pleasant surprise. Just over 50 miles north of the capital, the town has grown into a thriving community with superb sporting facilities, fantastic entertainment and leisure services and a bustling town centre. Forget the famous Milton Keynes roundabouts (of which there are many!) and head to one of the towns numerous great restaurants. Expect to find all the usual High Street restaurant brands in and around the town, whilst a number of independent eateries have popped up over recent years too. Home of the Open University, Milton Keynes has become a destination in its own right.
