Swindon is a town with a rich history, tracing its origins back to Saxon times and surviving to become a thriving centre in the county of Wiltshire. The Old Town, with its winding streets and courtyards, is a hive of independent stores, cafes and restaurants – resonant of the busy market stalls which kept the town ticking hundreds of years ago.
The industrial revolution of the 1800s transformed the location into a transportation hub, as the Great Western Railway brought new jobs, new people and new businesses from across the country. This urban expansion ushered in a fresh era for the town, and today Swindon is still growing with many businesses housing their headquarters in the area – from The National Trust to Nationwide Building Society.
For tourists Swindon is an excellent base from which to explore the Wiltshire further, with attractions such as Longleat safari park, and World Heritage sites such as Stonehenge, Avebury and Salisbury Cathedral. Then, there’s the famous eight White Horses of Whiltshire – some of which date back 250 years – not to be confused with the Uffington White Horse, which can trace its origins back to pre-history!
In Swindon itself, there are a variety of wonderful train museums which document both the town’s history and also the industrial history of the UK. Take a ride of a steam train for the afternoon and meet the fantastic, real life, railway workers who use their skills to keep the train puffing. For individuals who prefer a little bit of retail therapy, the McArthurGlen designer outlet will give you plenty of opportunities to shop till you drop.
