Starting with the obvious we’ve got a range of events on throughout the year here at Arena MK, and there’s professional football action at Stadium MK, courtesy of MK Dons. Staying on-site we’ve got MK1 Shopping & Leisure Park featuring a range of well-known fashion retailers, and the only IMAX cinema in the area.
If you fancy venturing out there’s a huge selection of Milton Keynes attractions to choose from. For a fascinating insight into a group of people who helped the Allies win World War II, which was so secret it had its own level of secrecy, a level of secrecy that was even held until nearly 30 years after the war, visit Bletchley Park, just a few minutes away.
If you’re into something a bit more theatrical, Milton Keynes Theatre is regularly home to many touring west-end musicals, operas, and ballet, to satisfy any cultural cravings. If you fancy getting active, MK also has a 170m indoor real-snow ski slope and indoor skydiving at Xscape in the city centre. You could also take to the greens of the prestigious Woburn Golf Club, just 10 minutes down the road.
As you go out into the surrounding countryside there’s even more to see and do, from gorgeous stately homes, like Woburn Abbey and Waddesdon Manor, to activity centres, such as Experience The Country, where you can try your hand at axe throwing and off-road driving challenges.
