Milton Keynes is famous for its concrete cows. Less well known but equally noteworthy, is the scenic waterside walk along the Grand Union Canal which stretches along the northern and eastern fringes of the city.
Milton Keynes gains a valuable green corridor from the Grand Union Canal. Running from historic Bletchley in the south to pretty Cosgrove in the north, the canal passes Fenny Stratford Lock (a nice location for a pub lunch or waterside pint) and the rural expanse of Giffard Park.
For those wanting to explore the canal by foot or bike the towpath is in excellent condition. However, if you want to experience life on the water there are a number of boat hire operators in the area who can arrange anything from a day trip to a few weeks away.
