8 Must visit historical sites in Swindon
A quick share of an article by Total Swindon.
The article features 8 must-visit historical sites in Swindon. It’s a nice list and especially so because they’ve included the Railway Village Conservation area including Faringdon (or GWR) park. Which is fab.
The article starts out thus:
‘Swindon has a rich history, especially when you consider how instrumental the town was in the railways. But even if we forget the significance of GWR in Swindon’s history there are still a huge amount of places of historical significance to visit.
If you’ve been living in Swindon all your life, or if you’re just here to visit, there are lots of must-visit destinations in our town. We’ve outlined a few of them below, but we’re only just scratching the surface!’
And indeed they are but it’s a good start to such a list for sure. Nice one Total Swindon!
So on the list they have:
- Lydiard Park
- STEAM museum
- The Designer outlet centre:
4. The Railway Village
6. Old Town – the entire area. Don’t forget Christ church.
