Information:

You’ll never be short of something to do in Milton Keynes. Offering some of the most exciting activities and some of the best entertainment experiences in the UK, Milton Keynes is a truly exceptional destination to visit.

Milton Keynes was originally envisaged as a London overspill zone, following the recommendations of governmental studies in 1964 and 1965 to build “a new city” incorporating existing towns such as Bletchley, Stony Stratford and Wolverton.

The ideas of Californian urban theorist Melvin Webber, who believed that the traditional concentric city would be superseded by “community without propinquity”, proved influential among Milton Keynes planners. It was envisaged as a low-density, low-rise city of light industry and convenience. Hence the city’s distinctive 1km-sized “grid squares”, or suburbs, where “workers, managers, vicars and doctors” would mingle in shops, schools and advanced factory units.

Architect Richard Llewelyn-Davies’s masterplan left 40% green space in the city, and two valleys as linear parks with lakes to hold floodwater. Today two-fifths of Milton Keynes is open space. If London had been built according to such principles, it would be the size of East Anglia

Milton Keynes has about 130 roundabouts. It is hard to be more precise about their number since it is growing all the time.

Sometimes you don’t think you’re in a city. Houses and industrial estates are often hidden behind grassy banks and thickets of willow, pine and dogwood.

At Snozone in the Xscape leisure complex are two 220ft-high real snow slopes, topped up each day with fresh snow. Excellent – even if Snozone should have a “w” and Xscape is an intolerable neologism.

Since 1971, more than 1,600,000 people have studied with the Open University, whose 48-hectare campus headquarters is in Milton Keynes. It is the fruit of Labour’s general-election manifesto commitment to establish what was variously called a University without Walls or a University of the Air; ie, a public distance-learning and research university that would give opportunities to many who would otherwise not be able to enjoy tertiary education, which is precisely what it has done, not to mention earning itself a stellar academic reputation.
