Milton Keynes is known for looking industrial with huge warehouses but it also has lots of green spaces too.

An article in The Guardian describes Milton Keynes as a 'soulless suburb of "non-place".

Adding: "For nearly 50 years, Milton Keynes has been derided as a soulless suburb or “non-place”, a centrally-planned slice of Los Angeles inconsiderately plonked in the centre of olde worlde middle England.

"Visitors who pass through MK as it was intended, by car, see no recognisable town at all: there’s a grid of broad roads and endless roundabouts, with houses and industrial estates hidden behind grassy banks and thickets of willow, pine and dogwood." 

However, some residents defended their hometown arguing it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

Jomelbo commented on the video: "I live in Mk and it’s beautiful, loads of green spaces, less polluted because of all the trees. Come and check it out properly!"

Another echoed this and said: "Jesus lad. MK is alright 😂 plenty to do and 30 mins from London."
