Memberships - Destination Milton Keynes

Memberships

We’re all about celebrating Milton Keynes, encouraging people from far and wide to experience our city and bring their custom here in the process. So it’s our job to bring together local businesses, and support them in making sure each and every visitor leaves our city having had an unbeatable experience, with a reason (or several) to come back.

Becoming an annual member helps support our work putting Milton Keynes on the map, and it brings with it a whole host of benefits for all kinds of businesses. Listings and promotion on the Destination Milton Keynes website, for one – a major portal for tourists to explore the city before they arrive, and to plan their itinerary. You’ll find membership tiers suitable for all budgets below.
