Milton Keynes is one of the UK’s newest big towns, having only appeared on the map in the 1960s. Despite its relative youth, MK has become a thriving hub of business and entertainment, with a great many green spaces and activities to enjoy, too.

    While the town is perhaps best known for its famous Concrete Cows art display in Bancroft Park, other noteworthy attractions include an indoor ski slope, a wakeboarding center, a theme park, theaters, shopping malls and more. Head into the suburbs and you’ll find more historical attractions, including the famous Bletchley Park.
