Welcome To Swindon
Where the Cotswolds meet the West Country, a visit to Swindon will leave you spoilt for choice.
The town is famous for the Great Western Railway works, which has today been brought alive at the award-winning museum STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway. Swindon is also enriched with Victorian parks and gardens, areas of extended woodlands, museums, galleries and centres of heritage. Swindon also has a very special gem, Lydiard House, an elegant Georgian abode of the famous Royalist, John St John, set in rolling parkland.
For lovers of music and spectacle Swindon is definitely the place for you. Choose your festival; Old Town Festival, Swindon Summer Festival, Forest Festival, World Music Festival and many more. Our staggering array of bars, clubs and nightclubs ensure that there is always something to do.
What about shopping? Shop till you drop in the town centre or at the fabulous Swindon Designer Outlet or small curiosity shops in Old Town.
If sport is your thing then look no further – ice skating, swimming, hiking, cycling, golf, ten pin bowling, tennis, horse riding – plus much more. Whatever your sport Swindon’s got it covered.
