Traditional pub alongside the grand union canal that harks back to the days before Fenny Stratford and Bletchley were absorbed into the concrete monstrosity of Milton Keynes. Good Beer Guide listed and CAMRA North Bucks pub of the year 2010, 3 real ales are available as well as a scrumpy cider. The pub is split into two bars with Sky Sports on the telly, a pool table, dart board and a quirky Old Peculiar clock that goes backwards. If the weather is nice beer can be enjoyed alfresco on the tow path next to the lock. The Red Lion is a lovely pub with a remarkably rural feel to it considering its proximity to the rest of Milton Keynes. Bars snacks are available but meals are not. To get to the Red Lion, come out of Fenny Stratford station onto Simpson Road and do a left. Head up the road for about 60 meters and Lock View Lane is on the right with the pub at the end of the road.

Bland and functional much like the rest of Milton Keynes, this bog standard boozer is reasonably close to Bletchley Railway station and en route to and from the ground. There’s nothing particularly wrong with this pub just very little good about it.
Pretty decent scran is available inside the ground and a massive Asda is over the road from Stadium MK.
How To Get There
To walk to the stadium from Bletchley head left up the very busy Saxon Street, dice with death crossing straight over a few roundabouts and eventually you will see stadium MK on your left.
From Fenny Stratford Station turn right up Watling Street for about 400 meters then right again into Saxon Street, over the big roundabout and the ground is on the left in about 500 meters.
There are shuttle busses on match days from Milton Keynes Central and Bletchley stations which cost a quid.

There is limited parking at the stadium for a fiver and cars can be left in neighbouring industrial areas around the stadium. We wouldn’t advise parking in the car parks at the local trade and retail outlets as you are likely to find a clamp attached to your vehicle when you get back to it.
From the M1 use junction 14 for Milton Keynes and follow signs to Stadium MK. For detailed directions and extensive information on prohibited substances that cannot be taken into Stadium MK, please click here.
