It's usually less than 10 minutes drive into Central MK, home to the business district, shopping at thecentre:mk & Midsummer Place, MK Theatre, Gallery and Xscape.  The accommodation is ideal for business or leisure guests; stay in touch with the fast, free Wi-Fi or switch off and enjoy all the comforts of home and more.

Visitors from overseas and the UK have discovered the secret of somewhere special to stay when they journey to Bletchley Park, a unique place history with easy transport access from Number 68.  With F1, Moto and Classic events taking place at Silverstone and concerts at the National Bowl, some weekends are booked up to a year in advance or as soon as the tickets go on sale which means a last minute or late room booking is never easy to find.

For those who are visiting MK for business, Number 68 is handy for Hanslope Park, near to the National Energy Centre, within walking distance of Wolverton Mill, staggering distance to Stony Stratford, close to Cosgrove and really convenient for Kiln Farm but in reality, anywhere you will need to go in Milton Keynes can be easily reached within a 10 to 15-minute car journey, including the Open University, Stadium:mk for MK Dons football matches and the home of the Enigma code-breakers at Bletchley Park.  Sometimes guests are on a musical pilgrimage, taking in a concert from a past, present or future star at the Stable Theatre at Wavendon - plenty of time to get there, check in and have a cup of tea if you've time before the show but make sure you tell all about the show either when you get back or over breakfast the next morning. 

Births, Deaths and Marriages are three reasons why you might need to stay overnight in Milton Keynes.  A 10-minute car journey is about all you need before getting to either the church on time in MK, the Registry Office, Milton Keynes General Hospital or Willen Hospice and less than 5 minutes away is Crownhill Crematorium.

If shopping is your bag, Central MK will keep you occupied all day and then some more! Alongside the bigger stores (John Lewis, Debenhams, House of Fraser and Marks & Spencer) are Hollister, the Southern Californian clothing range from Abercrombie & Fitch, Superdry, Zara, Gap and H&M.  If you need the latest Apple iPhone, iPad or Applemac accessory then the Apple store in Midsummer Place will keep you happy and there's lots of space to queue up under cover while awaiting the release of the next Apple innovation.  Want more? Experience Ikea, just 10 minutes away and it's right next to an amazing Asda-Walmart which is claimed to be their largest store in Europe. In surrounding market towns and villages, you'll find a wealth of traditional boutique shops offering designer clothes, crafts and gifts, antiques and much more around Milton Keynes including Rohan, TK Maxx & Next clearance.

Even more designer outlet shopping for the super smart shopper seeking luxury at bargain prices is less than 30 minutes by car, at Bicester Village. MK is much more than just shopping, it has its own unrivalled mix of leisure activities to sample with horsepower at Daytona Karting and just a few minutes walk away the slower pace of life can be experienced along the Grand Union Canal.  When you want to step up a gear or two, consider the horse racing at Towcester and driving experiences to be had at Silverstone and Millbrook proving ground. The Universities of Buckingham and Cranfield are about 20 minutes by car and for the more active walkers, cyclists & golfers amongst our guests there is plenty of interest closeby and around MK.

Number 68 is ideally situated for a visit to Woburn Abbey, Stowe Landscape Gardens, Claydon House and local National Trust attractions; Stratford on Avon in the Heart of England, Oxford and Cambridge, the Cotswolds and London - they are all no more than hour away as are visits to historical and heritage sites such as Althorp, Blenheim Palace, Waddesdon Manor.

Number 68 is next to St Mary Magadalene School and St John's Ambulance Centre. Close to Bucks and Northamptonshire border and despite some websites stating the contrary, Milton Keynes is not in Bedfordshire, it was in Buckinghamshire but has been a Unitary Authority since 1997.  The question many people ask is, "is Milton Keynes a city?".  The records show that in 1967 the government announced that a new city would be built halfway between London and Birmingham. The new city of Milton Keynes was planned and built in a “designated area” of poor quality agricultural land that included the existing towns of Bletchley, Stony Stratford, Wolverton and New Bradwell and thirteen villages. Perhaps it's still work in progress!
