Parking

The venue (The Buszy) does have it's own on-site parking, which is £5 per day (cash only) and can be paid on the day at the gate (download directions). There should be enough spaces free on the day, but if for some reason it's full, here's some alternative options.

Accommodation, Drinks & Food

There are a few hotels close by if you fancy staying over. You might want to check out Jurys Inn or the Travelodge. You can use code 'geek' which gets 10% off a double room, with breakfast for the Friday night.

There is a Costa Coffee, M&S and Subway at the station. We have two award winning Indian restaurants, La Hind and Jaipur, within sight of The Buszy, and just up the road is The Hub, which has a selection of bars and restaurants.

Bletchley Park

A trip to Milton Keynes isn’t complete without a trip to Bletchley Park, home of the codebreakers whose work is said to have helped shorten the war by two years. If you’ve survived the after party, why not join Christopher Murphy on Saturday at noon for an afternoon journeying down the avenues of computing history?

We’ve secured a discount for All Dayer attendees to visit The National Museum of Computing, which is home to, amongst other technological marvels: Colossus, a rebuild of the world’s first digital computer; Tunny, the remarkable analogue for the German Lorenz machine; and WITCH, the world’s oldest operating computer.

As our dedicated tour guide for the day, Mr PJ Evans, puts it: “You can play with many of these computers, allowing you to try your hand at real coding… none of this OOP lark.”

If you’re interested, drop Christopher a line for details.
