Things to do in Swindon

Swindon may have gained a bit of a reputation as somewhere that’s “dull”, but that really isn’t fair! Whilst it may not be the biggest town, it has lots of things to do that will keep you busy for several weekends – and its connections to the likes of London, Bristol, Bath and Oxford are pretty unbeatable too!

Visit the STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway

With over 40,000 objects in their collection, including photographs, fine art, and actual locomotives; STEAM is the leading museum for the history of Great Western Railway. You’ll learn a lot about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who practically invented the railway, as well as all the infrastructure that went with it.

Enjoy some retail therapy at Swindon Designer Outlet

Located next to the STEAM Museum, Swindon Designer Outlet can be found inside a Grade II listed building, which formerly belonged to the Great Western Railway Works. Enjoy up to 60% off top brands, including Kurt Geiger, Superdry, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger; or enjoy a bite to eat at one of the several restaurants and fast-food chains.

Immerse yourself in nature at Coate Water Park

Spanning 56 acres, it was originally built in the 1820s, and is now a firm favourite amongst Swindon residents. There are lots of walking and cycling opportunities, where you’ll be able to spot lots of different types of flora and fauna.

Spend the day at Lydiard Park

Another beautiful, open green space, Lydiard Park is just 4 miles outside of the centre of Swindon. Set within 260 acres of parkland, it features a walled garden, Palladian house, and a church. Tour Lydiard House, and you’ll see original furniture and family portraits; or visit one of the special events, such as the open-air theatre.

Drive round the magic roundabout

Constructed in 1972, Swindon’s magic roundabout consists of five mini-roundabouts next to each other, to create one massive roundabout. What might surprise you, is that it was only voted the seventh worst junction in the UK; but if you fancy putting your driving skills to the test, you can find it by Swindon’s football stadium.
