As the saying goes ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’, so we have a few recreational activities to consider when staying in an apartment in Milton Keynes. Business trips of a couple of nights or longer can be quite exhausting so to have a comfortable place to stay and a breath of fresh air can help to make you feel more alert and energised.
If you fancy a walk or have access to a bicycle, then the Grand Union Canal makes for a lovely place to go to stretch the legs and watch all the goings-on particularly during the Spring and Summer months. This vast canal is over 200 years old and gently winds its way up from London, through Milton Keynes and on to Birmingham. Although this is no longer a working canal it has been well-maintained and offers some great opportunities for leisure and relaxation.
The canal towpath takes in some lovely urban and rural scenery and is a great place for a walk. You can also cycle on the towpath if you are feeling more energetic and want to go further afield. The canal towpath covers over 1,500 miles and many of the best local cycle routes interlink at key points along the trail. There are bicycle hire services in Milton Keynes (Lakeside Cycle Hire: 0l908 691616) so you don’t need to bring your own bike with you on your trip.
There are a number of cafes, pubs, bars and restaurant along the Grand Union Canal. This is a lovely way to relax and enjoy a meal in picturesque waterside surroundings.
Many people travel to Milton Keynes each year for business. Sometimes this involves staying more than just a night. The option of Milton Keynes serviced apartments rather than a Hotel stay means you can find a comfortable ‘home away from home’ accommodation whilst you are away on business.
