Focus on: Milton Keynes
As part of our series exploring the neighbourhoods around BE Offices locations, this week we explore the area surrounding our Milton Keynes office on Avebury Boulevard
If your business is based in the Buckinghamshire area and you are on the lookout for a value-for-money flexible workspace, our Milton Keynes office could be right for you.
Our spacious and modern business centre is located in the heart of bustling Milton Keynes on Avebury Boulevard. A winner of ‘Business Centre of the Year’, this light-filled space has a range of high-quality serviced offices and flexible workspace on offer.
This purpose-built space features full office furnishings, on-site meeting rooms, a roof terrace and a sizeable garden atrium for informal meetings or lunches. Designed for tranquillity and functionality, the business centre is perfectly located for Milton Keynes’ restaurant and shopping scene.
Ideal for accessibility to Milton Keynes and the wider area, with Milton Keynes’ central train stations less than 10 minutes’ walk away. With restaurants, bars and retail areas just moments away in the Centre:MK shopping centre, there’s plenty to love about this office. Here’s our guide to the best of the MK neighbourhood.
Start the day in style
The office’s central location is close to several excellent spots for breakfast. Brunch bar Fourth & Fifth serves up dishes to write home about every day of the week, perfect for a pre-meeting pick-me-up.
For a traditional ‘Full English’, visit Browns for a relaxing brasserie experience with all the usual breakfast trimmings.
Caffeine fixes, whenever you need them
Though the office kitchens have enough high quality coffee machines to fuel your day, the garden atrium is home to The Green Bike Caffe which serves a range of freshly prepared and perfectly brewed Colombian coffee, along with a selection of hot and cold beverages.
If you prefer to get away from the office for a workday breather, Milton Keynes’ independent speciality coffee bar, the Bogotá Coffee Company, is just around the corner or for a no-frills, no-nonsense caffeine hit, try Carlo’s Coffee Bar for an espresso on the go.
Plenty for lunchtime exploration
There’s no need to go too far for lunch with The Green Bike Caffe offering a delicious array of hot and cold sandwiches, paninis and other snacks, but for something more substantial food-lovers can spend their lunchtime exploring the menu at Brasserie Blanc, a French bistro led by famous chef Raymond Blanc. For a spot of Indian cuisine, try Maaya Indian Kitchen and Bar, just moments away from the office. For a hearty steak with all the sides, try Middletons Steakhouse & Grill.
Just a 20 minute walk away is Campbell Park, perfect for a summertime visit for a lunchtime walk or picnic. You can enjoy sculptures, such as Chain Reaction, in the park’s green avenues.
The Centre:MK mall has everything you might need for shopping, with a range of high street stores for lunchtime browsing. This indoor shopping centre is great for retail therapy, come rain or shine!
For a dose of culture, try the MK Gallery, which hosts art exhibitions, theatre shows and film screenings in a carefully designed space. For bookworms, you can take to the Milton Keynes Central Library, open late for avid readers.
There’s also the Milton Keynes Theatre – a 1,400 seat venue playing host to dance, musicals, drama, comedy and opera. If it takes your fancy, you can try an adult acting course with your colleagues!
After a fast-paced day at the office, take a breather and enjoy a drink or two in the surrounding area. Pizza-lovers will enjoy Made in Sud, a relaxed pizza joint offering Neopolitan-style fare, where you can enjoy a glass of wine. There’s also the Olive Tree Turkish Mediterranean Restaurant and Bar, where you can splurge on nibbles and drinks with your workmates.
For somewhere to drink outside during the summer, you can check out Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes, a relaxed venue with tables outside. If the weather’s not quite up to scratch, there’s the no-nonsense BrewDog Milton Keynes, serving up Scottish-brewed beers and ales.
Cocktail lovers and party animals will feel right at home at The Dome MK Lounge & Cocktail Bar, not 5 minutes from the office. There’s also Bistro Live, which features live bands, dinner and drinks for a Friday night to remember.
For something a bit different, there’s the Snozone, an indoor snow centre built for adrenaline junkies. You can take to the slopes with skis or snowboards, either by yourself or in a group, making it a fun post-work activity.
