This modern town is built on genius! A bold claim you say? Well, the facts are there, not only was it the home of Spitfire, cutting edge engineering that helped win the Battle of Britain but today Swindon still leads the way and attracts a number of leading companies. The UK Space Agency is based in Swindon, Intel, Tyco… In fact, Swindon has 18 of the UK’s Top 50 companies.
Not bad for a town that really began as a pig market and trading centre, the name Swindon comes from ‘Pig Market’. The earliest part of the town (Old Town) dates back to the Iron Age and while some mistakenly think of Swindon as a new town, it’s actually featured in the Doomsday book.
As you would expect from such a forward-thinking town, Swindon has much to see and do. There are a number of museums, including the Steam Museum and Swindon Museum and Gallery. There is a theatre, arts centre, cinema and bowling alley. The town has a large shopping area featuring all the big high street names and some great independent shops. There are a number of parks and sports centres and just five minutes outside the town borders you’re into the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.
Foodies are also well catered for (see what we did there?), great restaurants, local breweries, cafes, cake shops and some amazing local producers offering the best produce from the surrounding countryside, this is Wiltshire after all!
The M4 gives fast routes to London and Reading to the East down to Bath, Bristol and Cardiff heading West. It’s also a short hop to the M5 heading to the Midlands and South West tip of the UK. London Paddington is under an hour away by train.
