As we head into 2015, there's a real feeling of excitement around Milton Keynes that this is going to be a great year. We'll be thrust into the limelight in October when Rugby World Cup comes to MK and shows the world exactly why we're known as an International Sporting City. Preparations are well underway for the event which, as well as international rugby in a world-class stadium, includes breathtaking and unbelievable entertainment at the fanzone in Campbell Park, plus a city full of activity through the Festival of Rugby.
As we lead up to this momentous event, there's plenty more going on! Theatre lovers can look forward to more West End transfers to Milton Keynes Theatre, including family favourite Shrek the Musical. Families can continue to enoy a day, weekend or short break like no other which the exceptional range of leisure activities. Movie fans are spoilt for choice with the brand new Imax at Odeon at thestadium:mk, and the UK's first 4DX movie experience at Cineworld at Xscape.
MK isn't all about relaxation though - early 2015 saw Milton Keynes named the top city in the country for job growth, with a phenomenal rise of 18.2% in the last decade. As well as being home to some of the world's most prestigious head offices, it's a great place to do business too, in our unrivalled selection of conference centres, hotels and business centres.
But don't take my word for it...the only way to experience it is to visit...explore this website and find out just what MK has to offer, then come and see for yourself. This year, DMK will be opening a Visitor Information Centre at thecentre:mk so when you do come to the city, make us your first port of call and we'll make sure not a moment of your visit is wasted!
All the best,
Destination Milton Keynes
