Three fab Swindon places to visit

Not that this is a huge surprise to those of us that know – but it’s super nice to see the validation!

The Three Best Rated website has rated three places to visit in Swindon: https://threebestrated.co.uk/places-to-visit-in-swindon

They are:

  1. STEAM: the museum of the Great Western Railway
  2. The Museum of Computing
  3. The Richard Jefferies museum

All of which is really fab and I’m trying not to be irritated by the fact that they’ve spelt ‘programme’ as ‘program’ all the way through their website.  In British English it’s programme for everything apart from computer software when it’s ‘program’.  That aside – well done them on recognising Swindon’s greatness!

‘Handpicked Top 3 Places To Visit in Swindon. How do we actually find the most highly rated places to visit? Our 50-Point Inspection includes everything from checking reputation, history, complaints, local reviews, nearness, satisfaction, trust and cost to the general excellence. That’s not all… businesses do not pay us to list them. You deserve only the best!’

Now, there’s lots of other fab things in Swindon of course – let’s not run away with the idea that these three places constitute the entirety of Swindon’s attractions. But it’s lovely to see them on this website nevertheless.

The website also mentions some Swindon landmarks: https://threebestrated.co.uk/landmarks-in-swindon
