Summer is just around the corner and last weekend we had a hint of the kind of weather that is hopefully on its way for the summer months, therefore, even though Easter is this weekend, we decide to take a look what you can do to make the most of the nice weather and the summer here in Milton Keynes whether your staying in our serviced apartments. When people think of Milton Keynes they often think of the concrete and lots of roundabouts, with built up areas and nothing very exciting for summer activities, but how wrong they are!
Milton Keynes has one of the largest percentages of green space a city in the UK has, with hundreds of acres of parks, lakes, and woodlands. But it's not all about green space, Milton Keynes has exciting inner city spaces to catch some rays, play with the children and enjoy some alfresco dining.
Here are some ideas:
Alfresco Dining - there are loads of restaurants in Milton Keynes and pretty much all of them are very good quality, and a lot of them have the opportunity for alfresco dining (or eating outside). If you want a sure-fire option then take a trip in The Hub:MK and you'll be spoilt for choice. If you're lucky enough to have a balcony in one of our serviced apartments then dining outside is made even easier. Cooking for yourself, perhaps getting a takeaway and then enjoying it in the sunshine.
Outside space - as stated above, Milton Keynes has some incredible outside spaces, one of the greenest cities in the country. A couple of our favourite places include Willen Lake and Campbell Park. As per the name, Willen Lake is a large lake on the outskirts of Milton Keynes offering water sports and spots for picnics. Campbell Park is Milton Keynes' answer to Central Park, closer to the city and some gorgeous outdoor spaces.
With the kids - if you're looking for something to do with the kids outdoors this summer then Milton Keynes is definitely the place for you, there are plenty of things to do, from climbing, adventure walks, swimming and safari parks - Milton Keynes really does have something for everyone this summer!
