Milton Keynes is a modern business hub that's located around 90 minutes' north of London. It was built in the 1960s, and the site was picked due to its perfect location in between Cambridge, London, Oxford, Birmingham, and Leicester. Today is it home to several large company headquarters, with retail, financial and automobile businesses providing thousands of jobs. The centre of Milton Keynes is home to lots of shops and restaurants, and there are lots of fun activity centres for exciting days out including go-karting, indoor skiing, and climbing. It's not all business buildings too; there are lots of pretty parks dotted around the town that are ideal for walking and picnicking, as well as nature reserves, golf courses, and the scenic Chiltern Hills which are just a short drive south.
