Sightseeing
Willen Lake South is Milton Keynes’ most popular park. It offers a wide range of activities on and off the water with something for everyone to enjoy, including Treetop Extreme, the county’s only urban high ropes course, outdoor splash park Splash ‘n’ Play, and watersports such as wakeboarding, canoeing and stand up paddle-boarding. It’s a great place to entertain family and friends of all ages, whether it’s a visit to the café or restaurant, a stroll, trying a watersports course or hiring a pedalo. Willen Lake is the perfect picturesque location for a run or walk – all year round. A circular route around both lakes is approx. 5km, but you can change this up to make it longer or shorter as required. There are plenty of open areas to enjoy a picnic, play games or simply relax in the sun. The one4six café offers a range of delicious paninis, sandwiches and cakes as well as hot and cold drinks and is open every day. You can find the café near the children’s play area and wakeboarding centre. There are seats in the café as well as plenty of picnic benches and tables outside if you prefer to eat al fresco. During peak season you will also find many other food concessions available at the lake. There is a Premier Inn overlooking the lake, with The Lakeside Pub attached. Please check their websites for opening times and more information. Fishing is permitted in certain areas of the lake, although this is dependent on the time of year and other activities that are taking place.

Museum
The Mansion, Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes, MK3 6EB – 15 mins drive Bletchley Park is a vibrant heritage attraction and museum, open daily to visitors. It was the home of British World War Two codebreaking; a place where technological innovation and human endeavour came together to made groundbreaking achievements that have helped shape the world we live in today. This unique site was previously a vast Victorian estate, where parts including the Mansion still survive, expanding during wartime to accommodate Codebreakers Huts and Blocks. During World War Two, the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), now known as the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), was based at Bletchley Park. It grew from a small team of specialists to a vast intelligence factory of thousands of dedicated women and men. This extraordinary combination of brilliant and determined people and cutting-edge technology contributed significantly to Allied victory. In tough conditions, they provided vital intelligence and developed pioneering technological innovation that had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the war. The site continues to reveal secrets and tell fascinating stories of our national legacy.
