Map of Milton Keynes Mosques & Prayer Rooms

Milton Keynes is unique. We have lots of roundabouts, concrete cows and robots delivering goods to homes.

However, there is something else unique about MK.

The Milton Keynes Muslims!

Milton Keynes has a large Muslim population, and they’re from a diverse range of ethnic and social backgrounds.

As a result, we have several Mosques ran by members of different ethnic communities. So, I decided to create a map of all Mosques in Milton Keynes.

But who am I? and Why MK?

I was brought up in Milton Keynes and really like the town. I co-manage the Muslims in Milton Keynes Facebook Group, please join!

Below is an interactive map showing all Mosques and prayer rooms in MK, including multi-faith rooms located in the Milton Keynes shopping centre and hospital. I have also created maps for London, Birmingham and Manchester, with an aim to cover the entire UK.

So, let’s see the map.

Let’s go through each Mosque & Prayer Room in more detail.

…and while you’re here, why not read through some of my Nasheed reviews.

The Centre MK Prayer Room

For years Milton Keynes had no Prayer Room inside the main shopping centre. However, there is now a Multi-faith room complete with Wudu facilities.

The Wudu room contains heated flooring. However, it’s not segregated.

Technically it’s open to people of all faiths but mainly used for Muslim prayer. The Qibla is located towards the opposite corner to the doors.

Exact location: walk up towards the John Lewis / Primark end of town. The prayer room is located next to customer services, beside the toilets. Or opposite KFC (not Halal).

Taraweeh Prayers are held at this Mosque every year, for both men and women. They typically pray 8 rakats (units) of prayer followed by Witr. The Witr is usually prayed in congregation with a dua out load after the last Ruku. In the past, Egyptian Imams have led the prayer. They usually add an echo/reverb onto their sound system for extra effect. Occasionally, talks are held between or after the salah.
