Discover the history of the codebreakers
Newport Pagnell sits on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, just past the M1 motorway and a 20-minute drive from the original home of the codebreakers. During World War Two, Bletchley Park was the base for the incredible, top secret British team. Today, the beautiful building and park is home to the National Museum of Computing. And once you’re done exploring, you can enjoy a peaceful afternoon tea in the park. A perfect day out?
Enjoy the snow, whatever the weather
It doesn’t matter when you’re visiting, there’s a place just 10 minutes from Newport Pagnell where it’s always snowing. The brilliant Snozone indoor slope lets beginners and experts hit the snow on skis and snowboards all year round, with lessons and family activities for everyone to enjoy. Frankly, we couldn’t think of anywhere cooler to go.
Hit the vintage store
Back in the heart of Newport Pagnell is the unique No. 38 Vintage Emporium. This quaint and kitsch vintage shop only opened in October 2014, but since then it’s generated quite the following. With an eclectic mix of items available, the shop’s a must for any retro fans out there. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Newport Pagnell?
