Located 30 miles from Bath and Oxford, Swindon is Wiltshire’s hidden gem. Originally a small market town, you can still wander down the quiet alleyways but enjoy the modern shops and contemporary bars.
Rich in arts and culture, Swindon is home to the Wyvern Theatre, Arts Centre and the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery which all host a variety of events.
Explore the stunning scenery the 260-acre estate of Lydiard Park has to offer, tour the State Rooms of Lydiard House or marvel at the restoration of the Georgian Walled Garden, complete with topiary, fruit trees and flower displays.
Bursting with wildlife, Coate Water Country Park is also worth a visit which has a children’s playground, summer splash pool and a café open all year round.
Discover the history of the Great Western Railway at the Steam Museum or visit Health Hydro, the Victorian health centre that’s still in use today and houses a swimming pool, gym and Turkish baths
The Old Town is nice to visit in the evenings with traditional pubs, stylish cocktail bars and a great range of cuisine.
