The historic town of Stony Stratford

If you have time during your visit we recommend a little trip around Stony Stratford, it is a busy, picturesque market town at the north-west corner of Milton Keynes. The many pubs, restaurants and specialist shops attract visitors from some distance! The highlight of the annual calendar is in early June (second Sunday) when Folk on the Green, a free (voluntary contribution) festival of folk music, folk rock and eclectic taste takes over Horsefair Green.  If you are interested in the history of this market town please click on the link below for information – including the abduction of the two princes that famously died in the tower! http://www.mkheritage.co.uk/mkm/stonystratford/docs/history.html
