Milton Keynes is close to being a city, with everything but the blessing from the Queen (at the time of writing this article). Other than that, it’s a great place to be.
Milton Keynes is just fifty years old and is unlike any other place in the UK. It’s famous for its roundabouts, concrete cows and horizontal and vertical road grid system.
There are so many activities that we can do with our families within Milton Keynes. We have detailed some below:
Central MK Shopping Centre
Milton Keynes has a large shopping centre in the heart of central Milton Keynes where all the shops are undercover, in one location, with many top high street brands.

Bletchley Park was crucial in winning World War II. During the war, several mathematicians worked tirelessly to break Germany’s code during World War II. These people are called the ‘Codebreakers’, and during the war, it was Britain’s best-kept secret.
