Built after the Second World War Milton Keynes is finally coming into its own. With great rail links to the heart of London the train journey to London Euston takes less than 30 minutes and this means it is fast becoming a sought after location for young professionals and their families. Housing is more affordable here than in the old established towns like St. Albans and the schools are generally good with many getting outstanding in their OFSTED reports.
This purpose built town has, at its heart, a huge shopping mall with over 400 shops and its own tourist information bureau which employs enthusiastic volunteers eager to share their knowledge about their town and all it has to offer.
The town has its own theatre, bowling, cinema and ski complexes (a beach complex in the summer) and as it is surrounded by beautiful countryside only minutes from the centre there are plenty of opportunities to pursue numerous outdoor pursuits . With 4500 acres of parkland, woodland, lakes and rivers to explore plus four Heritage Cycling Trails and 270 KM of safe and secure red ways crisscrossing the entire city so you don’t have to cycle on any roads. It also benefits from the Grand Union Canal where there are many miles of towpaths to invesitgate.
Nearby they have just opened a brand new purpose built Waitrose and are building new housing developments on the outskirts of the town.
