Willen Lake is a gateway to Milton Keynes. Wether it's running the circumference of the lake or walking it and taking in the beauty of this man made lake. Intended to be nothing more than a balancing lake and anti flood development, it soon transpired that it could serve another purpose. Two areas that the lake is split into. One... More

Had a lovely day here. The kids are young so loved the park and the fair that was there today as well. We had coffee in the cafe and lunch at the Premier Inn, both of which did not disappoint.....we also had our car parking refunded via the hotel restaurant.

Nice place to walk and often things on. Paddle boats. Wildlife. The pub service was slow where drinks were concerned. They arrived just as we finished eating!!!
