Let's Travel - - England -

Si­t­u­ated just 45 min­utes north of Lon­don, is Eng­land’s new­est town at just 47 years old. It has a young and vi­brant feel about it with a can do at­ti­tude. It is home to Sta­di­umMK which is the base for Milton Keynes Dons Football Club, and has the long­est shop­ping mall in Europe. Plus its his­tor­i­cal side, Bletch­ley Park, is just 10 min­utes from the cen­tre, made fa­mous as the site of break­ing the ‘un­break­able’ Ger­man Enigma code in WW2. The cen­tral part of Milton Keynes of­fers ev­ery­thing from shop­ping to the most suc­cess­ful theatre out­side the West End and a renowned mod­ern art gallery, through to in­door skydiving and snow­board­ing. Head to the Xs­cape com­plex to see the vi­brancy of the town first hand with a mix of restau­rants and adrenalin ac­tiv­i­ties plus the largest casino out­side Lon­don.
