A friendly town nestled in the stunning Wiltshire countryside, Swindon is a delightful mix of medieval history, industrial pride and modern culture. It's a fantastic location for anyone looking for a relaxing UK break.
The most popular tourist attraction in the Swindon area is a short drive east of the city centre, and is one of the largest and most stunning examples of medieval art anywhere in the world. The Uffington White Horse is over 100 metres long and covers an entire hillside, and is a must for anyone visiting Swindon or the Wiltshire area. If you are looking to get a real feel for the local area, then you should look no further than the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery on Bath Road or Steam: The Great Western Railway Museum. Both are within easy walking distance of the city centre hotels in Swindon and display artefacts, artworks and displays chronicling the town's history of culture, industry and everything in between.
As with many locations for a holiday in the UK there is plenty of money to be saved on accommodation in Swindon if you don't mind avoiding the usual hotel options. There are plenty of comfortable, affordable B&B options around Radnor Street which can cost a fraction of the local hotels, and they will also give you the incentive to get out of your accommodation and explore the town more. Also, to give you the ideal blend of town and country during your stay, it may be worth renting a car so that you can travel out into the Wiltshire countryside to your heart's content.
