Where the Cotswolds meet the West Country, offering the best in town and countryside, visiting Swindon means you can experience a delightful contrast of a modern world with great heritage. Swindon’s history dates back to the Roman times, however it was the industrial revolution and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of England’s brilliant engineers that put Swindon on the map when he introduced the Great Western Railway. Today that heritage is wonderfully portrayed at STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway. Lydiard House is another gem as this smaller stately home was the ancestral Georgian home of the Elizabethan Viscounts Bolingbroke. Escape to one of Swindon’s Country Parks, trails or gardens for tranquillity and the chance to relax, walk, cycle or socialise. Take a short trip outside the town and you can experience some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country – the Cotswolds and Wiltshire Downs. Shopping is a prime attraction in Swindon with excellent town and out of town options including the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Centre - the largest covered outlet in Europe, where discounts on top-range clothes, homeware or accessories are up to 50%! Numerous sporting attractions can be found from ice-skating, swimming or tennis but for the more adventurous reach the sky when you go wall climbing or feel the rush of Skydiving, Go-Karting, Quad biking and much more. Be entertained at our theatre, art centre and dance studio. Feel the excitement watching the Greyhounds, Football team, Ice Hockey or Speedway. Get involved in our festivals be it the World Music or Wiltshire festival. Dance the night away in one of our bars or clubs and dine out in establishments offering British cuisine, Asian, European, Mediterranean, or Mexican. No matter what your tastes you’re sure to find it here! We look forward to welcoming you, so come and discover the secrets of Swindon. Population 156,000
