A hidden gem of Milton Keynes, the Cowper and Newton Museum is the former home of poet William Cowper.
The collections are diverse and interesting, ranging from the belongings of Cowper and his friend, the ex-slave trader John Newton (author of Amazing Grace), to local history items, portraits and an extensive lace collection. The beautiful 18th-century gardens are incredibly peaceful. A full programme of events happens each year.
