Become an MK New Town Explorer

Date Posted:21/05/2020

New Town ProjectWant to become an MK Explorer and learn more about MK's unique New Town designed cityscape in a fun way online?

Milton Keynes Council and MK City Discovery Centre have joined forces to bring you fab activities for all ages to bring our unique heritage to life.

The New Town Heritage Explorers Project is an exciting design and heritage project funded by MK Council, MK City Discovery Centre and the National Heritage Lottery Fund.  Thanks to Lottery Players, it will develop a New Town Heritage toolkit to help residents and local communities bring MK’s design heritage to life with an innovative creative programme.  The project will explore and document the social history of MK – the stories of the people who live here, the impact of the buildings on daily life, what is it really like to live in a city built from scratch.

As part of the creative programme, the partners have developed some online activities which people can do at home safely or as part of their daily exercise walking around their local area. Resources include a New Town Quiz to test your knowledge of Milton Keynes and video tutorials to help your build or draw what you think Milton Keynes will look like in 2050!

New additional activities are being launched weekly throughout May and June.  To find out more go to the project website: and The Heritage Playlist on Milton Keynes Council’s YouTube Channel:
