A leisurely stroll
Walking is a great way to explore the city – you can take in the sights in your own time, stop when you want and for as long as you like – plus, it’s great for your health and wellbeing.
There are lots of walking guides and routes to help you decide where to go – and wherever you are in the city, you’re not too far away from something interesting. Guides include trails around local art, culture, heritage, architecture, parks and open spaces. You may be surprised at what you find!
Redways and Footways
MK has hundreds of miles of Redways and footways for walking and cycling in MK. They are quite well surfaced and suitable for people in wheelchairs, with pushchairs and people who use mobility aids. Try going for a short stroll somewhere different once a week to really get to know your neighbourhood. Alternatively, use our journey planner to plan your route to the shops, school, doctors, work, friends or place of interest.
Leisure Routes and Open Spaces
Milton Keynes has over 40 parks, nature reserves, woodlands and opens spaces covering thousands of acres, most of which is managed by The Parks Trust. A huge network of public footpaths, bridleways and surfaced ‘leisure routes’ criss-cross these areas providing literally thousands of walking options for all ages and abilities.
The Heritage Trails take in a wide range of heritage sites and are suitable for walking or cycling. Each trail is broken down into sections for shorter walks or you can complete the whole thing using the downloadable guide.
