Home of a New Generation
Milton Keynes’ pioneering spirit is the inspiration behind Santander’s plans to house our new, state-of-the-art technology hub here by 2022, creating thousands of new job opportunities in the process. Staff at the hub will get to enjoy a truly world-class working environment specifically designed to encourage collaboration and innovation, supported by the very latest technology.
The City in the Country
With all this talk of technology, you may be surprised to learn that no matter where you live in the area, you’re never more than half a mile from a park. In fact, over two-thirds of the borough is invigorating countryside, with over 5,000 acres of parkland, rivers, lakes and woodland including an astonishing 22 million trees. The ideal destination for walks, riverside lunches and thrilling on-the-lake activities, it’s no wonder that it’s become known as “the city in the country”.
Built with you in mind
Thanks to its strategic location and fantastic travel links to major cities around the country, over 50% of the population is under 35, and they are very well catered for. So, you’ll find over 200 works of public art dotted around the city; contemporary art exhibitions at the MK Gallery; professional football at the MK Dons stadium; indoor skiing and skydiving at Xscape; concerts and shows at the iconic, 65,000 capacity National Bowl Arena; live performances at the MK Theatre; movies at Imax cinemas; and shops galore at one of the UK’s largest shopping centres. What’s more, with its rich choice of restaurants and bars, the buzzing Hub and Theatre district in the centre of town is the perfect place to meet up with friends for a night out.
A well-kept secret
In addition to its vibrant modern-day culture, Milton Keynes also boasts a fascinating history. Revisit one of the most important moments in Britain’s history with a visit to the heritage attraction at Bletchley House, once the top-secret home of 10,000 WWII Codebreakers. Or step back into the Eighteenth-century with a walk around the beautiful landscape gardens at the National Trust’s Stowe, which is nearby along with the historical market towns of Stony Stratford, Newport Pagnell, Wolverton and Olney
