Wouldn't bother even trying to get a car near the area.

Google maps is your friend. Search for "Bars near Milton Keynes Bowl".

I agree! I'm going to get as near as I can then walk the rest of the way.

This is what the site says about parking:
http://www.mkweb.co.uk/Bowl/displaya...3078#bowlfaq19

Quote:
There are a number of designated National Bowl Car Parks nearby. Follow the signs from the city outskirts for the Bowl and you will be directed accordingly by stewards as you approach the vicinity of the venue. There is a £7.00 charge per car and vehicles are parked at owner’s risk. In addition, patrons can use parking areas laid out on the Southern side of the city centre (various charges apply) and take the pedestrian cycleway system 'Leisure Route 51', a 25-30 minute (just over 1 mile) signposted walk to the Bowl from adjacent Milton Keynes Central Railway station. Please use car parks provided as illegally parked cars will be towed away..

That's all well and good, but if you take a car, it will take you hours to get out at the end of the evening.

Have floor space in our room mate, if you want to crash with us (I'm sure we can sneak you in?!) Have a travel lodge, about a mile away, booked for me, my lad and his mate ( possibly my friend too) but I'm sure we can fit one more in! Not sure where the rest are staying but I'm sure one of us will find space for you

Sophie is right. Took me 3 hours to get out of just the car park after seeing Robbie there a few years ago. Parking there is awful!

I recall it being exactly the same after I saw Green Day there. It's horrendous.

this is the nearest that i know of, have sat out in the beer garden a few times to listen to gigs at the bowl.
But if you want actual bars they are in the city center a normal 10 minute cab ride, but with 60000 people coming out it may take you a while to get there

Congrats on getting your tickets - are they specially printed or just standard ones like any other gig?

Wembley had more, there were silly threads about beer and food stalls and dyson hand driers.

I know its not the same venue but took me 3 hours to get away from the stadium after Take That last week. I wish I'd found a different way to travel. And the crowd there was about 10k less then this crowd will be!
