Visit Swindon’s updated directory is a one-stop showcase of all the great things on offer for visitors to Swindon.
From accommodation to attractions, through green spaces, restaurants and pubs, not forgetting shopping, sports and theatres, it’s all there when it comes to planning your day in Wiltshire’s most modern and diverse town.
If you’re in the leisure and entertainment business and your details are not in the directory just press the green log in button at the top of the Visit Swindon website, then click register. Fill in your details, provide us with your logo and your business will be automatically uploaded.
Among the attractions in the directory for those who like to get the pulse racing are Jungle Parc, Laser Quest and Rockstar Climbing. More leisurely pursuits are on offer at Butterfly World, Buzz Bingo and The Museum of Computing.
Swindon is nothing if not international when it comes to cuisine, whether that’s Mexican at Chiquito, Italian at Fabio’s, Greek at The Greek Olive, Spanish at Los Gatos, Jamaican at Moshan Island Grill, India at The Jewel In The Crown, Brazilian at Rios Brazil, or Himalayan at Yak The Himalayan Kitchen, amongst others.
Our green spaces are the envy of just about every comparable sized town in the UK, so let’s here it for Barbury Castle (though there’s no actual castle!), Coate Water, Lydiard Park, Old Town Gardens, Stanton Country Park and a long etcetera.
Swindon is equally blessed when it comes to shopping. Housed within the beautifully restored Grade II listed buildings of the Great Western Railway, the South West's most popular Outlet Village boasts a huge variety of shops and brands, not to mention restaurants and coffee shops, many of which stay open till late.
As befitting a town that is a business hub as well as an entertainment hub, there are a variety of accommodation possibilities, from rural settings like Alexandra House, Blunsdon House Hotel and Stanton House Hotel to town centre chains like Holiday Inn, Marriot Hotel and Double Tree by Hilton Hotel.
The sporting picture is also bright. Swindon Town FC are recently crowned Champions of League Two, Swindon Robins compete in the top division of speedway competition in the UK, and Swindon Wildcats are current champions of the National Ice Hockey League.
