Pocket Guide: England National Bowl Hotels

The counties to the north of London offer an entirely different experience to the capital itself. While central London is all hustle and bustle, the counties to the north offer relative tranquillity. Bedfordshire has built a solid reputation as an enchanting holiday destination on this very tranquillity. However, amid the county's still-vibrant towns, there's plenty for the discerning culture vulture to find on a visit to Bedfordshire. The National Bowl is a real highlight, and with plenty of excellent hotels nearby, a visit to the Bowl can be easily coupled with a good night's sleep.

A Worthwhile Transformation

On the site of the National Bowl, just outside Milton Keynes, used to lie a vast open clay pit, used for making bricks to be utilised in local industry. While the pit was a necessity at the time, locals were pleased when it was eventually transformed into the National Bowl.

The National Bowl is a huge open-air concert venue, which has space for some 65,000 people. Thanks to its size and location, the Bowl draws in some of the biggest acts from around the world.

The Greats Descend on Bedfordshire

When the National Bowl first opened in 1979 with shows from Desmond Dekker and Geno Washington, it was clear that the stage was set for something special. Indeed, over the years, the National Bowl has continued to attract the world's best talent to this special county.

Superstar names to grace the stage outside Milton Keynes since then include David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Queen.

Accommodation near the National Bowl

As it's so close to Milton Keynes, visitors to the National Bowl can expect to choose from some of the best B&Bs and hotels in Bedfordshire.

Affordable hotels in the centre of Milton Keynes include the Days Inn and the Holiday Inn, both of which also offer easy access to the M1, making them ideal choices for those taking short breaks.

The countryside close to the National Bowl also offers some charming, traditional guest houses. The Old Mill in Newton Blossomville and Lamorna B&B in Olney both offer friendly options in peaceful locations not far from the concert venue.
