Top Ten reasons to #LoveMK announced

Destination Milton Keynes (DMK), the official tourism organisation for MK, is once again asking the people of Milton Keynes to help celebrate #LoveMK Day today, Thursday 2 May 2024, on the biggest one-day social media celebration of all things Milton Keynes!

Now in its 12th year, #LoveMK Day promotes Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination whilst also asking people to harness the pride that many have in the place they call home. Over the last few months, DMK has been asking residents and visitors what their favourite things are about Milton Keynes to compile the TOP TEN list of what you LOVE about MK…and the results are in:



1. The many green spaces, parks and lakes for everyone to enjoy

2. Getting around is easy - the roundabouts, the grid system and the redways

3. The mighty MK Dons FC!

4. Thriving independent restaurant and street food scene

5. The millions of trees, especially the spring-time blossom or the rich autumn colours

6. Stunning collection of public art – over 260 pieces throughout the city

7. Starship delivery robots

8. Retail therapy - both the big shopping centres and the unique market towns

9. The Grand Union Canal winding through the very heart of the city

10. Having fun at Xscape Milton Keynes


Today, DMK and partners throughout the city, ask the MK social media community to use the hashtag #LoveMK on all their posts, and get creative with that hashtag – paint it, sew it, bake it, make it out of flowers, you name it – they want to see it!


Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said “We’re proud to have compiled a definitive list of why people #LoveMK so much. The many green spaces top the list and it’s no surprise; we’re known as the city in the country, with over 22 million trees, our much-utilised lakes, rich woodland and the plethora of parks for residents and visitors to enjoy. But it’s also interesting to see the love for some of the quirkier aspects of the city like our roundabouts and the much-loved Starship Robots.”
