Milton Keynes is not all concrete cows and roundabouts (although it does have those too); it is an exciting, prospering young town with a lively vibe and a whole host of things to do. We have guests who come and stay while they are learning to ski on the real snow slopes at the SnoZone and others who come to Milton Keynes to get their kicks at indoor skydiving centre, Airkix. Others come to see family and prefer to stay in a spacious apartment, rather than crashing on the couch.
Milton Keynes is a great place to stay if you are taking a trip to Woburn Safari Park and Woburn Abbey, playing golf at Woburn Golf Club or simply enjoying a spot of shopping in the shopping centre.
Northampton was famously known for producing shoes – and you can certainly wear out some shoe leather seeing all this market town has to offer. Did you know that Northampton is the third largest town without official city status (the others are Reading and Dudley) and has a population of over 200,000?
The traditional town centre has plenty of shopping delights including the massive market, held in one of Britain’s largest remaining traditional market squares. The town centre is also home to the Royal & Derngate theatre and to Sol Central, a thriving hub for entertainment. If you fancy a day trip during your visit, Northampton is ideally placed near Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix.
